Korres Mango Butter Lipstick (Coral): Review and Photos

Own purchase

Second to hot pink, coral is a lovely color to rock for spring and summer. It's fun, vibrant and warm. I own probably three coral lippies and they're all matte so I'm on the hunt for a more office-friendly a.k.a conservative coral-ish shade (conservative?! does that even exist in my vocabulary?). Sheen, sheer, barely-there? Make up your mind woman!

Korres is one of my go-to brands for natural-looking makeups. It's for the simple Jane who likes a sheer wash of color to brighten her au naturel fez. Yeah, believe me when I say that there are days I want to be plain. And simple. Period.

Korres mango butter lipstick in coral ($18, Sephora) is described as sheer with high-shine finish. With "butter" in the ingredients, it's hydrating like your trusted lip balm. I see mango oil, now that explains the product name.

Color-wise, this particular shade is coral-pink, not vibrant coral as described in Sephora website. Needless to say, it's not marketed as long-wearing so reapplication is required, pro re nata.

plain jane is in the house, woot woot!

Do you like or own Korres?



  1. it looks great on you but it doesn't look exactly coral

  2. You look gorgeous! I actually like natural makeup best, and this looks like a really pretty summer shade.

    1. Hi Krystle. Thanks mucho. It is and I'm wearing it as I reply to you, for realz!xo

  3. I've tried some korres skincare but not any of the cosmetics. I really want to try one if the lip butters-I've heard fantastic things about them. I think the color looks great on you but I understand what you mean about it not being true to description.

    1. thanks so much for stopping by! so far here's only one korres product I didn't like, I had to return it pronto ~the lip yogurt!

  4. I would have to agree that this shade looks a lot more pink than coral. Either way, it looks lovely on you!
