Rave:Korres Lip Butters

I've got a nice candle lit and I'm ready to write my first review! :) I'm sorry that this has been so long coming; I just started my second year of college and things have just been pretty nuts in my brain/school/work.

Anyways! Today I'm going to review (and rave) about some beauteous lip products from Korres. I was gifted my very first Korres Lip Butter by my sister Rachel for my birthday this past year. Fortunately for me, (and unfortunately for my wallet), it quickly became my most-used lip product, second only to my trusty Burt's Bees lip balm. Needless to say, I sprinted back to Sephora for more. I currently have three colors in the original Lip Butter line: Guava, Pomegranate, and Quince.

Under Construction...

Well hello there!
My name is Rebekah and I'm slightly obsessed with makeup. I've always been incredibly picky with what I use on my face and thought that maybe, just maybe, I should put those thoughts down somewhere on the internet. 
I'm currently testing out a couple of things and as soon as I'm satisfied with my results I'll be sure to share with you all! 
Thank you for visiting~
