Mango Pink

Korres Mango lipstick SPF 10



Packaging is clean and sleek. The tube has a heavier feel compared with the Guava lipstick, which is nice - it feels like you're holding a good quality product.

The colour I got is Pink 17, which looks scarily bright in the tube but is a sheer wearable reddish pink:

Swatch:

Top - one swipe
Bottom - two swipes

The colour is buildable so even with my pigmented lips this shade does show up.

Very moist and glossy. Not *quite* as moist as some Japanese lipsticks (i.e. T'estimo) but still pretty darn good for a Western brand. I can't remember how it compares with MAC Slimshines because I don't own any at the moment, but its probably similar if not better.

Price wise it is more affordable than the Korres Guava lipsticks at US$18 for 3.4g/0.12oz. It is also more in line with MAC pricing which is US$16 for 0.1oz of their regular bullet lipsticks.

Overall, its the polar opposite of the Guava lipsticks I reviewed previously. While the Guava lipsticks were pigmented and slightly drying, the Mango lipsticks is sheer and moisturizing.

Any of you tried Korres lipsticks / glosses? What do you think?

This looks sooo pretty on your lips! Sadly I'm allergic to the spf in these... but other than that it sounds like I'd love them! ;_;

this colour looks very different from the tube, to your swatches to your lips. did your natural lip colour alter it ?

I've only swatched their lipsticks, but I was also drawn to these ones. I'm glad to hear it's moisturizing.

This shade looks very pretty!Sadly I haven't tried any of Korres' lipsticks. I love his pencils though. I might give this lipstick a try. In Greece you can find Korres in virtually every drugstore so I could buy it alongside my vitamins tomorrow!x

I tried this shade in Frost Pink, I'm not a fan of frosty light pinks but this is quite pretty, actually. Now the Cherry glosses are another story, they're simply AMAZING. I swatched most of them at my blog (quite a while ago), if you'd like to take a peek =)
