Korres Buttered Up lip butter duo: Jasmine

Sephora is offering some really lovely sets right now, including this one from Korres.  I got this one as a Christmas gift from my mother (hi mom!).  It contains one lip butter and one lip butter glaze in the same color, a pale tan pink.  It retails for $15, which is a nice value, given that the lip butter sells for $12 and the glaze for $14 when you get them separately.

Their lip butter is my favorite tinted lip balm EVAH, despite being in a pot instead of a more portable form.  It's soft, smooth, luxurious, and it sinks in to make your lips feel hydrated and pampered.  If my lips are feeling dry or irritated, I put on some of this and they feel instant relief.  The balm has a sheer tint to it, more than a gloss but not much.  It lasts a few hours before needing to be reapplied.

The lip butter glaze feels more like a gloss to me.  It's not at all sticky, and it's sheer and shiny on the lips.  I find it needs reapplication a little more frequently than the lip butter and isn't nearly as moisturizing or soothing, but if you consider it as gloss and not a treatment it's not bad at all.  It has a hard plastic slant-tip applicator with works really well and is easy to clean if needed.  The glaze can be hard to get out in cold weather, so keep it in a warm place if you're going to be using it.
