Korres Delight Your Lips Review and Swatches

If you haven’t tried the Korres Delight Your Lips Set you’re so missing out!

Check it.

$26.50 snags you four Korres Mango Lipsticks, let me hear you say Heyz! I dunno this kinda stuff excites me, I mean four for under $30 bucks? Likey that price.

Have a jump for the deets!

Korres Mango Lipstick gives full on color pay off but manages to feel very sheer and glossy plus it has sun protection built right in! I’m in lust with the formula since it’s so hydrating and moist it feels as if I’m wearing a lip gloss not a lipstick. Mango butter is included in the mix to keep lips moist and hydrated so if you have a problem with lipsticks that dry out your lips, these should delight!

All-natural sun filters protect lips from the highly damaging rays of the sun. If you’re plotting a Spring getaway soon you might want to pack a few of these bad boys in your luggage to keep lips protected from not only dry, chapped lips but the sun too!

For me the formula is the real focal point. It’s so moisturizing yet light plus plenty of pigmentation. It’s one of those lipsticks that has plenty of color but doesn’t look clownish or unnatural plus the glossy sheen the formula supplies is just gorgeous. I find I don’t like going sans gloss when I wear lipstick as I like a slick, mirror shine and this provides just that minus the use of a lip gloss.

The snack pack (hehe love referring to Korres gift sets as snack packs) contains four shades which are Natural Brown, Natural Purple, Orange Brown, and Orange Red. Some of those shades sound terrifying but no worries they are all very natural and neutral.

Natural Purple-Rosy Brown
Natural Brown-Exactly as the name says!
Orange Brown-Dirty Coral
Orange Red-Sheer Peachy Orange

Overall, price per a lipstick comes out to under $7 which is a complete value. The formula is incredible particularly if you like light wear lipsticks. I’m gonna say it’s a big old Muse Approval. Loves ’em very much!

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.

      aw sorry to hear that musicalhouses! Have you checked on MUA or your fav forums for maybe a swap buddy?!

  • Hana

    This set actually makes me super sad, since I just don’t think I could pull off those shades at all. ;_; I wish they’d do another set with more pink-y colors.

  • Del

    ooh these look good! I like the sheer finish to them. Are they subtle on the lips too?

  • Julie

    I read this post, bought the set, and wore the orange brown for the first time today! So gorgeous! You’re right, they’re so lightweight and shiny. I get nervous about buying lipstick colors sight unseen, but these are so lovely and sheer, I can tell I’m going to like all the colors. Thanks for the tip, I am developing a serious crush on Korres.
