Pucker Up! | Korres Cherry Lip Gloss in Light Purple.

I don't think I'll ever get used to this waking up at 5am. After that long Christmas break, coupled with the cold weather that makes you want to stay in bed for the rest of the day, waking up early has been quite a feat for me since the year started.

These days, I no longer have the luxury to wear full makeup because I'm always pressed for time each morning. There was actually one time last week when I woke up so late that I was forced to take Yue to school with hardly anything on my face - just BB cream and lip gloss on. Que horror, I left the house without 'drawing' my eyebrows, lol!

Speaking of lip gloss, here's one that I have had in my stash since God-knows-when but never had the chance to write about. Until now, that is.
Korres Cherry Lip Gloss.
The Korres Cherry Lip Gloss is a high-shine, full color lip gloss formulated with cherry oil (hence the name Cherry Lip Gloss) that hydrates the lips and keeps it soft and smooth. It also contains vitamins E and C that have anti-oxidant benefits.
#23 Light Purple.
There are 13 different shades to the Cherry Lip Gloss Line, and the one that I have is shade #23 Light Purple.
Up close. :)
It's actually more pink than purple - milky pink to be exact, with a hint of shimmer to it.
Comes with the usual doe-foot applicator.
Swatched once, and as you can see, it's quite pigmented.
Milky pink. 
This lip gloss is nicely pigmented, as you can see, plus it's very comfortable to wear with its smooth and non-sticky texture. It's not as lightweight as your average lip gloss, but that bit of weight actually translates into staying power. No need to retouch every so often, unless after a full meal. :)
Light Purple when worn.
What I love:
- Mild, cherry scent.
- Highly pigmented.
- Smooth, non-sticky formula.
- Decent wear time.
- Made with natural ingredients.
- Paraben-free.

What you might not like:
- They're a bit pricey at 15 euros each. 
That's $17 or around Php 750.
- Not available locally, though I believe Luxola sells Korres on their site.
Products used:
