18 Apr Korres Rasberry Antioxidant Liquid Lipstick in Soft Pink !
There was a time when every blogger in the blogosphere raved about the Korres liquid lipstick and sported the wet look in their photographs.I wanted to try it so badly but availability was an issue.I got it via a friend recently and thought of sharing my views.
PRODUCT CLAIM: A cooling, water-based liquid lipstick rich in line-smoothing, antioxidant-rich raspberry and pomegranate extracts.This cooling, water-based formula contains the natural raspberry and pomegranate extracts to protect against free-radical damage and smooth lip lines for softer, more youthful-looking lips. It glides on with the creamy texture of a lip gloss and has the long-lasting, vibrant finish of a lipstick.
PRICE: $22.00 for 0.12 oz.

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The product comes in an opaque tube with the shade similar to that of the lipstick.The shade number is marked below the tube.
It comes with a doe foot applicator.The packaging is pretty but if not properly closed there are chances of leakage.
The consistency of the product is watery but not runny.From the name itself you can make it out that it is liquid type.
These are nicely pigmented.The color is rich and the shades are beautiful.
It doesn’t have a glossy or creamy finish.It is wet on lips.Its moisturising and takes some time to dry.The formula is not tacky.It is light weighted.
It lasts only for an hour if I don’t eat or drink anything.
- Awww the nice smell
- Pretty shade
- Cute packaging
- Great formula.Feels good on lips.
- Leaves stains
- Doesn’t last
- Doesn’t settle down
- Expensive for the quantity
- Smears as it is watery.It even spreads.
- It tastes horrible.Yuck
- Highlights dry areas of lips
RECOMMENDATION: I recommend this to anyone who likes something more than a lip gloss and are not comfortable with lipsticks.This is lipstick plus lipgloss.If you have dry lips or fine lines stay away.Its good for daily wear.
FINAL WORD: Overall not bad but its not my cup of tea either.I might not repurchase it as it doesn’t have so many pros for the heavy price tag.
