Korres Cheek Butter: Philia Rose

Korres Cheek Butter’s are an extension of their iconic lip butters. “Cheek Butters deliver a radiant and hydrating flush of long-lasting color to your complexion. Natural Shea Butter restore’s skins suppleness and increases moisture with guava extract, rich in vitamin C, provides antioxidant benefits.”   

 Korres Cheek Butter in Philia Rose (a warm pink)

Korres Cheek Butters are cream blushes loaded with healthy skin ingredients. They are free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMO’s and Triclosan. As like most products that wear the Korres label and feature the word “butter” you can expect an ample amount of natural and moisturizing ingredients. The plastic pan with decorated lid is lovely. It takes some pressure for the product to be warmed up enough to apply. This blush is not creamy enough to glide across your cheeks but preferably applied in a dabbing motion.

The blush, once applied, comes on bright but instantly diminishes in intensity. I find myself applying this blush in about 3-4 layers to get the desired amount of color that I prefer. The texture is lovely and sits comfortably on the skin. The look is a sheer wash of color, creating a warm healthy glow. The color Philia Rose is a gorgeous warm pink tone. I loved the color and formulation of this product, but it failed for me in it’s lack of lasting ability. After I have layered and set the product with powder I can only get about a good 2-3 hours out of it, which is not long at all. I love Korres and I wanted to love this, but I cannot be concerned about reapplying a cream blush every 2-3 hours.

  1. I almost picked one of these up last month but skipped on it – I’m glad I did now!! What a shame the lasting power is so minimal, I love the idea of these and Korres is a great brand, but reapplication for something like this just isn’t realistic!

  2. It looks so pretty and natural on you! Too bad the wear time is not so great! It’s a huge bummer especially for a cheek product..

  3. I was just looking at this couple weeks ago… the colour on you is gorgeous! As others mentioned, too bad it lasts for so little, and it would be a hassle to keep taking it out and applying it!
    It looks really great on your lips too!
