A Poem Of Jasmine

5/09/2015



Not exactly a poem but a very emotional blog post this definitely is. I think my love towards the very famous and very good Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm has been known to you if you've stopped by these parts. It's the only lip balm I find to be potent enough to be used as a night treatment and it has saved my lips from excessive flaking on numerous occasions. I can use it during day and I sometimes do but the texture in my mind connects the product to night time for some reason. I was on a lookout for something of similar effect on the lips whilst being lighter and possibly tinted in that 'my lips but better' way. After repurchasing this beaute I can safely say that it is indeed my favorite day lip balm of all! Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine (£8 via feelunique.com) has earned its place in the most used and most loved beauty items - and for a good reason. I already use these amazing lip butters in shades Pomegranate (lovely coral) and Wild Rose (perfect wine tinted goodness) however, Jasmine is the one I reach for the most. It's such a simple product yet it intrigues me and I cannot seem to get tired of it. When I finished my first tub (after over a year of intense use!) I actually felt sad and I kinda missed it in my life - it was weird but I really needed it back so a repurchase happened.

Mozda necu posvetiti pravcatu poemu najdrazem balzamu za usne ali svakako da hocu jedan emotivan post. Mislim da je bogato dokumentovana moja ljubav spram Nuxe Reve de Miel balzamu na usne - ako me pratite duze vrijeme, ova informacija vas nece iznenaditi. Nuxe balzam je jedini kojeg smatram dovoljno efektnim da posluzi i kao nocni tretman te je vise puta spasio moje usne od izrazitog perutanja i pucanja. Mogu da ga koristim tokom dana i nekada se zaista njime posluzim dok sam kuci ili na poslu no specificna tekstura ovog balzama u mojoj glavi pravi poveznicu sa nocu i nocnom njegom. Bila sam u potraznji za proizvodom slicnog djelovanja, no prilagodjenijem svakodnevnoj upotrebi. Imala sam na umu nesto sto ce biti laganije formulacije i mozda uz dasak boje koji bi se savrseno uklapao u meni omiljeni 'no make-up, make-up look'. Nakon sto sam po drugi put kupila ovog ljepotana zaista sa sigurnoscu mogu reci kako je upravo on meni najdrazi i najbolji dnevni balzam za usne od svih! Korres butter za usne u nijansi Jasmine (cca 20KM preko feelunique.com) sa razlogom je zasluzio svoje mjesto medju beauty proizvodima koje najvise volim i najvise koristim. Vec od ranije sam koristila ne samo Jasmine nijansu vec i Pomegranate (socna koralna boja) i Wild Rose (savrseni dasak boje vina). Ipak, Jasmine je taj za kojim sam najcesce posezala. Radi se o jako jednostavnom proizvodu koji je nastavio da me intrigira i izgleda da mi ne moze dosaditi. Kada sam potrosila prvu posudicu (nakon preko godinu dana svakodnevnog koristenja!) bila sam pomalo tuzna i nedostajao mi je - sto je, priznajem, cudno reci za takvo nesto - ali ponovna kupovina je bila neizbjezna.



Packaging of these lip butters is always same - white circular base in which the product is stored and the shades only differ by the color of their lids (which match the actual shade of lip butter). Korres is a Greek beauty/skincare brand which really appeals to me - I love the designs on their packagings, I love how creative they are with their scents (fig, basil/lemon, vanilla/cinnamon, vanilla/freesia/lychee etc.) and their products I've tried so far are really amazing. Lip butters have one of the most unique textures out there - it can be described as mousse, gel, cream all at the same time. It isn't oily or heavy or thick, it feels light and almost bouncy under fingers but it provides a really beautiful 'slip' and makes lips super moisturized and well taken care of. Within minutes all chapped areas and flakes go away and my lips look soft and lovely. Korres lip butters all share a similar caramel/toffee scent which is most prominent with the Jasmine shade - I personally love it! When swatched, Jasmine looks transparent but on the lips it gives a light, milky pink tint which eventually turns clear as the lip butter melts into the lips. It gives a little somethin' somethin' to the face and it's perfect for a no make-up make-up day, paired with a smokey-eye or with anything you can think of really. I'm a huge fan of these lip miracles and Jasmine holds a special place in my heart. I think you can tell how much I love it by the sheer fact I'm on my second tub whilst Wild Rose and Pomegranate (lovely as they are) aren't even properly dented.

Pakovanje ovih buttera za usne je uvijek isto - bijela posudica je standardna i u njoj se nalazi sam proizvod dok se u skladu sa nijansama samih buttera razlikuju i boje poklopca svakog od njih. Korres je grcki vecinom preparativni brend koji sadrzi i malo dekorative i mnogo toga u vezi njih mi se dopada. Dizajn svakog pakovanja je jedinstven i lijep, dopada mi se kako su kreativni sa odabirom mirisnih linija (smokva, bosiljak/limun, vanilija/cimet, vanilija/frezija/lici itd.) no najvise sam im privrzena zbog toga sto su im proizvodi kvalitetni (barem je ono sto sam do sada isprobala ostavilo takav utisak na mene). Butteri za usne imaju jednu od najunikatnijih tekstura na koje sam naisla - mogla bih je istovremeno opisati kao pjenastu, gelastu, kremastu - i ne bih pogrijesila jer je sve to u jednom. Nisu masni, teski niti gusti - prilicno su laganije formulacije i gotovo pa su vazdusasti na dodir. Mazivi su a sto je najvaznije, u kratkom roku oporavljaju usne od ispucalosti i perutanja. Par minuta nakon nanosenja suhe i grube usne bivaju zagladjene i mekane. Korres butteri za usne dijele jako slicnu mirisnu notu karamele/uprzenog secera koja je najizrazenija upravo kod Jasmine nijanse. Da li ce vam se to dopasti ovisi od vasih preferenci - meni se licno jako svidja. Kada napravim swatch, Jasmine djeluje gotovo prozirno na kozi no na usnama ima blagu mlijecno ruzicastu boju koja doduse vremenom postaje transparentna, nakon sto se butter stopi sa kozom usana. Ima nesto u vezi njega sto lice osvjezi i uklapa se kako u neutralan look, tako i sa smokey-eye sminkom ili bilo cim sto vam padne na pamet. Velika sam ljubiteljica ovih buttercica za usne a Jasmine u mom srcu drzi posebno mjesto. Mislim da vam je jasno koliko ga volim ako znate da uveliko trosim drugo pakovanje dok prva pakovanja nijansi Pomegranate i Wild Rose (koliko god lijepi bili) naprosto nisu ni do polovice potroseni.
