Before Christmas I made an order with Zuneta which is a lovely website that sell lots of niche beauty brands such as Rouge Bunny Rouge and Hourglass, if you haven’t tried them then give them a look as they sell lots of gorgeous things. Some of the brands are a bit expensive so I decided to try a few things from Korres colour range since I love what I have tried so far. I would love to buy the entire range of Rouge Bunny Rouge and I know it’s supposed to be amazing but still..it is even more expensive than Chanel !
Here is what I picked up after watching Tali’s review video on youtube as I haven’t tried many of their cosmetics (I have tried the bronzer, blush and mascara specifically).
Korres ginger and vitamins lightweight foundation which has an SPF of 10. I like that it has SPF as my eczema cream makes my skin more sensitive to the sun. I got shade LF1 and as it is sheer it works whether or not I have fake tan on or not which is brilliant and saves me money buying two of the same foundations in different shades which I find really annoying.
Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation SPF10 retails for around £17.75 in the UK
Packaging – I really like the tube packaging, it isn’t heavy to carry around in your makeup bag like a glass bottle and you can squeeze out the exact amount of product that you need rather than a pump which just gives you whatever 1 pump turns out to be (and I always find 2 pumps too much) and it is much better than my annoying Nars sheer glow which has no pump and a giant hole so far too much product comes out at once, so I am loving the tube, as it’s really easy to control.
Application/consistency – you only need a small pea sized amount of this foundation, it is water based and feels very creamy and light, not thick at all. This is absolutely nothing like a Estee Lauder double wear or a Dior Forever foundation, it feels how I would expect a tinted moisturiser to feel (but tinted moisturisers never actually live up to my expectations).

Packaging – I don’t really like products in tubs and as you can see from above I have to gouge out the product with the front of my nail so it doesn’t get stuck under my nails. I find it quite unclean to use a tub but it does look cute! I would prefer a tube which would be less cute but more sanitary.
Smell – mine only has a very light scent and it smells vanillery with a tiny hint of jasmine, but it is not overpowering at all and non-offensive.
Colour – as you can see the colour is a gorgeous milky pale pink. It doesn’t show up that much on my lips but I prefer that, it will be much more foolproof to apply while in a rush. It sort of tones down my lipcolour slightly and makes it look paler which I like.
Flavour – I can’t detect any flavour which I like, as it’s much more user friendly.
Special Points – contains shea butter which is lovely for dry chapped lips and as with all Korres products this and the foundation are Silicone and mineral oil free, they are not tested on animals and they are very natural. I have been using this with my Body Shop lipscuff and it is a great combo for soft lips.
Repurchase – I would definitely repurchase this colour but I am not too interested in the other colours at this time, maybe if they come out with some new ones.
Has anyone tried the wild rose foundation or powder?
