Oooh! It’s orange!

Hello beauties!

Today I would like to talk you about two lipsticks, both in very summer shades, that I loved and (over)used during the past 4 months and I keep wearing every now and then.
Right: Korres 45 Coral
Left: MUA 16 Nectar

Allow me to start with the MUA Lipstick. Shade 16 is called Nectar and is a bright coral. And when I say coral, I mean the orange and peach side of the shade rather than the pink one. 

Hmmm…can you tell the difference with nude lips?
The formula is good, considering the price. It glides easily on lips and feels light. It is very moisturizing, almost like a balm. The pigmentation and the lasting aren’t good; it looks sheer and lasts less than an hour on my lips. It has a slightly glossy finish which gives a fresh touch on my look. I am in love with its scent; it reminds me the vanilla & cinnamon cookies! Yummy!
For an £1 product, it is ok but don’t expect miracles. A good tinted balm could do the same work.

The second lipstick is the KORRES Mango Butter Lipstick in 45 Coral. It is a bright coral-orange, semi-sheer and glossy lipstick.

It is lightweight and very moisturizing. Till here, you may notice a lot in common with the previous lipstick (color, characteristics…),  but this one offers a better pigmentation and lasting. Plus, it has a SPF 10 which I found important during summer months, especially if you live in a sunny country like mine. It has a very discrete scent that smells like cherry.
This is the first Korres Lipstick I have ever tried and I am convinced to try more shades.

This or That…?

As you can easily notice, these two lipsticks could be dupes, don’t you think? I prefer the Korres one. It does cost more, but I love the formula and the long lasting.

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Do you like Korres and MUA products?
