My Korres Colour Cherry Lipgloss Collection and Review

Click to enlarge

My favourite makeup product has to be lip gloss. I can slick it on in a traffic jam, on the bus, at my desk or walking along the street (no, I have no shame).  I love that with one quick swipe it makes your lips look full and plump and glossy without having to stare in a mirror like you would have to with a lipstick; sometimes I just don't have time to be that precise.

Good lip glosses can have different qualities, sometimes you need something slightly sticky so it lasts a long time although in reality you would prefer something smooth that doesn't catch random pieces of hair on your lips meaning you have colourful lines all over your face where the sticky strands have redistributed gloss wherever they have landed.  These, for me, is the best of both worlds as it is long lasting but non sticky.

Korres is my favourite brand and I have built up rather a collection of their lip glosses over the last year.  

The glosses are hydrating, non-sticky and contain cherry and jojoba oils, offering an intense, luminous effect, available in 10 fabulous colours.  The glosses are dermatologically testedfree of mineral oils, silicone, propylene glycol and ethanolamine which I LOVE, who wants nasty chemicals that close to their mouth?!

The finish is sheer but pigmented and all of them adapt to your lip colour so are both flattering and very wearable for day or night.  My lips are never chapped or dry after using Korres lip glosses and I love that the taste is delicately of real cherries, nothing artificial or fake like those vile glace cherries they serve in drinks.

Have you ever tried the Korres Colour range? Do you prefer lip gloss to lipstick?


  1. Never tried Korres glosses. Wasn't overly impressed with their shadows. Love their foundation...now must try out their glosses!
    I'm more of a sheer lipstick girl. I don't like to wear anything heavy on my lips.
    Thanks for the review!

  2. Love lipgloss too - I must try these, they look very pretty.

  3. I haven't tried korres lip glosses but I love their wild rose lip butter but I find it difficult to apply so their lip glosses could be the best alternative, I may have to add them to my christmas wish list! I like gloss for everyday and lipstick for going out x

  4. They look lovely and just a hint of colour, I haven't tried these before but they way to describe them they sounds good enough to eat! I love lip products which smell yummy! My fav is the Nude colour x

  5. These look gorgeous on you, you have such perfect shaped lips x

  6. Ooooo lala! I saw these at Sephora recently and was tempted but did not buy them because of my unfamiliarity with the brand. After seeing the swatches, I have to pick them up tomorrow! Thanks Sarah!

  7. These colours are so pretty and different to the others, normally found colours when u go to Boots, or wherever... I hate it when company produces boring colours lol but these look amazing! xoxo

  8. Yay, loving the lip swatches hun

  9. i go back and forth between lipstick and lipgloss - guess it just depends on how I'm feeling that day. These shades look very pretty and they add just enough color to your lips. think i'll pick on of these up. Thanks for the review :)

  10. Hi Sarah ;)

    I haven´t try any Korres product, but definitely after reading your reviews, some of their products are in my "wish list" and i´m really looking forward trying those lip glosses, all the colours you show are gorgeous and btw you have such a beautiful well shape lips!
    I do like lipstick but when is not heavy and thick, at the moment my favourite is Different lipstick 92 tender heart by Clinique, it looks like my lips but better, between pink and red... but as well i love the gloss just the same reason as you, is so practical and easy to apply and the result is juicy sexy lips!
