Discovery: A Korres Lip Balm Version of MAC Viva Glam Cyndi

I love my MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick.. And it's the only product that I actually bought a back up off.. So that says a lot about how much I love this lipstick.. I love the colour and the texture is so lovely and moisturizing..


So during my very quick trip to Korres.. I stumbled across their Mandarin Lip Butter Stick SPF15 which were new to the store.. There were around 6 in total.. Most had minimal to no tint.. Except for this lovely one I bought...


This is in Rose

When I applied this to my lips, it was love at first application..

Pros:
Really nice texture
Moisturizing
Great shade
Easy to apply
Not overly glossy like Korres's Lip Butters (which I still adore and are more moisturizing)

Cons:
Not very long lasting


Now the difference between the Korres Lip Balm Stick and the MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is that the Korres one is sheerer but you still get that gorgeous hint of Rose that you get with the Cyndi Lipstick..

Here are the swatches...


They may look completely off in the swatch, but on the lips, they are sooo similar except for the slightly more corally shade in the Viva Glam Cyndi..

I'm so happy I came across this lip balm.. I wear it all the time now and it goes with any blush I wear, whether it's peachy or pink..

I say if you missed out the Viva Glam Cyndi, definitely check this one out if your Korres store carries it..



Have you tried the Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick SPF15?

Well I'll just stick to Viva Glam Cyndi which happens to be my favourite lipstick... I've also got the gloss, the colour is so pretty! Do you have the gloss too?

I bet it is, but I like the seaweed for myself and the Aloe calming one for clients =)

I just found some Korres products where I live today! I was so happy at first since I've seen you reviewing them, and then I saw that it was only the lip balm products (only the ones in a metal jar I think). But they looked gorgeous and I think I'll give one a try.

Hey, so I took your advice about trying Cargo blush and bought the Mediterranian set that has a blush in it and I love it!! Thank you for the recommendation, I will review it soon!
