Sally Hansen:Natural Butter Lip Shine Wednesday, Apr 14 2010 

Ahh… lip gloss, shiny as a mirror and hopefully moisturizing. Sally Hansen offers a nice alternative for those who don’t want to shell out big bucks for something that goes bad in a year. Sally Hansen lip shines are shiny, and reasonably shiny. They aren’t crazy drying but the moisture isn’t reasonably noticeable.  They don’t have a waxy feel to them and they just glide on the lips really nicely. I have Wildflower (peachy pink with shimmer) and Nosegay(fuchsia). Nose gay is really pigmented but tends to settle around the mouth. They aren’t my favorite but they are not awful. I recommend a look-see next time you are at CVS. 3 stars.

Korres Lip Butters Monday, Mar 29 2010 

Korres has long been famous for it’s lip butters, and I believe I am the last one to hop on this train I think. I got my three colors in a pack for 19.95 from Sephora. The colors are guava(clear), pomegranate(midtome pink/berry), and mango(coral). And baby. Are these things great. They moisturize and are nicely pigmented.

Guava-milky white that blanks out the color of my lips very slightly

Pomegranate- my go to color, it is a pink berry that looks more like a stain than a gloss

Mango- the most pigmented of the three, this thing packs a punch!

Buy them here! http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P258431&categoryId=C11245

“Korres Lip Butter gives lips a lovely, shiny finish and offers a natural flush when applied to the apples of the cheeks. Its shea-butter infusion conditions and heals lips and provides a softening touch to the skin.”

5 stars! I have my eyes on Jasmine and Wild Rose!
