Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection Review & Swatches

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, We’re happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland.
Gone away is the bluebird, Here to stay is a new bird He sings a love song, As we go along, Walking in a winter wonderland. In the meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is Parson Brown…….”

Dudes…who the hell is Parson Brown anyway? I had to go Google really quickly to find out! Turns out Parson Brown is another way of saying “minster”….huh? What? And here I was thinking he was some actor from the 50’s….goes to show you how much this Muse knows.

Oh well anyways….

I’m so walking in a Winter Wonderland today with a frosty treat on my eyes that was included with the new Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection. I’m all shimmery white and I even have on my pure white Jack Skellington hoodie…only problem is I feel like living in a plastic bubble because I’m going to cry if I get a speck of dirt on it.

This year Korres has all these killer kits they put together for making Holiday gift giving easy peasy, 1, 2, threesy!

Take the jump to check out my shimmery Winter Wonderland look using the Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection.

This kit is a basic “Best of Korres” hit list. It includes cult favorites from Korres and basically everything you need to create a simple, everyday look. Nothing dramatic or crazy just a fresh, natural look! Loves it!

The products are all full size and the complete kit will set you back $45. Purchased separately it would be $88 so it’s a considerable savings.

The basic look is cool and sort of wintery as the shadow is a shimmery white shade. For my look below I simply did a color wash with the shadow, lined my lower waterline with the black eye liner, used a few coats of the mascara, and finished up with a little lipstain and the gloss.

All the products are rather fun additions to your wardrobe if you are new to Korres as I find all their color cosmetics are very good quality. I’m partial to the complete look as it’s cool and crisp looking, perfect for the colder weather. The one thing I wasn’t too keen on was the shade of the lipstick as it’s a nude pink and not too flattering on me. Aside from that everything else is ace.

Here’s the completed look! Btw I’m sporting the Stila Foundation here, lovely right? Disregard my really poorly groomed brows….not good…note to self, pluck!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Oooooh, want. I’m sad you didn’t like the lipstick so much, but it might look good on me. LOL. How is their mascara? I’ve never tried it.

    • the Muse

  • NuNu

  • jojoba(My Make Up Reviews)

    i would have bought it was not that mini! the big packaging with mini products didn’t attract me… *_* but the colours really suit you.

  • Andrea

    A. I can’t believe you even knew the words to that song
    B. I’m jealous you can wear a coat; it’s in the 70’s here in Texas
    C. I put this in my cart, took it out, put it back in, took it out, put it in, and finally took it out again. I bought the pink lipstick set (I think proceeds go to breast cancer research) and the sugar plum make-up set. Perhaps I should revisit.

    • the Muse

      LOL Andrea 😀 YOU NEED the sugar plum set it’s awesome :-D!!!!! Tell me what you think when it arrives!

  • Melissa

You rock muse pretty look and trivia – thanks. I want to buy the shadow but darn its a good deal in the kit.. decisions decisions. How long is the muse code good for this time please?

    • the Muse

    Oh Musey, why do you do this to me?? I wants that kit so bad now, but the Korres kits never seem to be available over here. Me needs to do some hunting around me thinks. :p

  • kristina

    I don’t think I know the real lyrics to this song. I always get the “Walkin’ ‘Round in Women’s Underwear” version they played in the early 90’s in my head.

    • the Muse

      you think jojoba?! they seem the same size as a mac lipglass wise and the mascara is pretty the same size as any other mascara 😀
