Korres Buys- A Lot Of Foundation Here!

Hi ladies,

Hope you're well.

It's been expected that I did a post on my Korress make-up buys.

I got my hands on to Korres make-up while in Greece (how exotic, right?). 
Yes, I know you can get it in the UK but it's hard to get hold of the entire range. 

I went to Kefelonia (a Greek island) so there weren't massive shops or drugstore but a normal high-street chemist was enough. Most of them carry the brand.

Before even typing anything about what I bought I wanted to do a proper road test! I tried all of these at least for one week each so now I know exactly how I feel about each product.

As expected I went for mainly their foundations and one lip product:

Wild Rose Foundation (the little dark bottles)

It's the long-lasting foundation for a flawless, radiant finish. Don't they all claim that?
I cannot express how much I LOVE this foundation. I actually got 3! Yes three!  I went for my lightest (WRF2) shade, my darkest-right now after my holidays (WRF6) and one in between (WRF4). I got obsessed much? 
Oh yes!

This foundation is so light yet delivers what it claims. I would say it's mid coverage but a good "mid" if that makes sense. I apply it with my fingers and it melts on my face! There are no harsh lines, not even on the hair line. It does remind me of Guerlain Lingerie de Peau in the way it blends on the skin.
I can still see my pores but not my imperfections. It looks very natural and yet polished. I'm so happy I got these.
It comes in a glass bottle (I think- it's hard to know what material is) and you get 30ml. It has SPF 20.
You need to shake it as you can see it separates a bit. 

I cannot stop using this product! And now I completely know why people love this foundation so much. It's my new love and all the shades I got with slightly different undertones will allow me to have a Korres face all year round. I paid 18 Euros for each of them.

While looking at their range I also got curious about another foundation but I haven't heard too much about it. 

It's the Ginger & Vitamins Foundation (the white tubes)
It says on the tube: Lightweight water-based foundation that balances skin tone and leaves the skin fresh and luminous.

It's more of a tinted moisturisers basically. 
It's quite liquidy (not like Face and Body) but not as thick as the Garnier one.
It blends beautifully into the skin and it does leave a nice satin finish. The coverage is quite light but you can build it up a little bit.
I got shades LF2 and LF4. You get 40ml and I paid 17 Euros each.
And if you are wondering, yes it has SPF 10
I do like it. Nothing too special to be honest but it's a very decent tinted moisturiser.

The only lip product I got was their cult Lip Butter in Mango
Yes, it's nice and super rich and moisturising. The scent is gorgeous and the coral tint is so beautiful on the lips but I totally detest having to dip my finger on products. I always make sure I have super clean hands when using it and I don't like that I then have tu rubb off the excess on my palm or hand.
Anyway, it is nice. I know a lot of you love this product.

I was intrigued by other products by Korres. Their lip liners looked so nice!
But I think their stand out thing is their Wild Rose foundation *hands down*!

Super super recommend it! Try it and let me know if you agree.



Are you a Korres foundation addict like me?
If you have it, how do you apply it?
Any other Korres product I should check out?
What do you guys think of my themed photos!?

    I've owned several of the lip butters but never use them because I hate having tinted balm on my hands - it always ends up on my clothes or bag and it's a pain to use on the go. Otherwise, I've only tried a face scrub from them which I wasn't impressed with either! Maybe I'm trying the wrong products?xx

    I only have one piece from Korres, the Jasmine lip butter. I dislike the tub form because of hygeine as well, though it is quite pretty. Love the beachy product shots, making me crave a holiday!

    @Stacey: Yes, I hate that too. I guess their &quot;it&quot; product is their foundations? x<br /><br />@Laura: I&#39;m getting used to it. Love the product but it&#39;s the dipping the finger right in there that bothers me. X<br /><br />@Irene Hua: I would say I have a combination skin now. I had really oily skin for about 6 months and I empathise with you. Very hard to get anything staying on for more than 4 hs. It stays on my all day now. X<br /><br />@GABY: How are you? It&#39;s a nice product really. And it was about 6 Euros so not expensive at all. X<br /><br />@emmabovary: Thanks! I want to go on holiday all over again! :( X
