This claims to be an extended-wear lipstick with intense color and a very moisturizing texture. The formula is very moisturizing; it feels like a lip balm and does not drag on the lips at all. It also has a very pleasant smell, similar to Mac lipsticks (vanilla scent) but I prefer the scent of this one much more. Korres’ products do not include the harmful chemicals that most other brands do.
This formula lasted about 4-5 hours on me while slowly fading after about 2 hours. I would say that it lasts longer than a regular lipstick but wouldn’t necessarily call this a long-wearing lipstick. However, I was surprised that it did last as long as it did since it felt slippery on my lips. It is very comfortable to wear and is perfect for those with dry lips or for using during the winter.
The shade I choose was “Mauve” and it looks on the tube to be a mid-tone purple shade however, it is more towards a pinkish, berry color with a touch of mauve. It also does not live up to the claim that it has “intense color”, as I had to swipe a few times to get the swatches below. This is a sheer lipstick but can be built up for more intensity.
The tube is thin and so is the lipstick which makes it easier to apply without over-drawing however, it has much less product than a regular tube of lipstick.
Overall, I recommend this for those with dry lips and the shade is a nice autumn color if you are uncomfortable wearing dark berry, purple shades.
