Korres Cheek Butter in Philia Rose, 0.21 oz, $25
Korres comes in a plastic container that is pretty lightweight. The top has an intricate design that makes it look very Greek-like to me. I love that the container doesn't leave nasty finger prints all over them.
Philia Rose is a very light mauve pink shade. There is no shimmer or sheen. It is very matte and cream like. When you dab some on your cheeks and smooth it out, it gives you an instant brightening effect and sculpt out your cheek bones. I really like that you can't tell I am wearing blush with this product!
Swatch of Philia rose
Application: The texture is creamy, but not soft cream. It is a hardened cream, but applies and spreads out very easily.
Staying power: I had Philia Rose on my cheeks for about 8 hours before fading. I did not notice any irritation on my cheeks nor blotchiness that you sometimes get with powder mixing with your skin's oils. This stayed put very well and did not smear.
Scent: There is no scent to this product.
Overall: I love the color and the naturally sculpted look it gives. I like that it stays on well and does not smear. What I think could be improved is the way you apply it. I noticed little dust hairs or other things could fall in easily. The fact you are using your fingers also diminishes the sanitation of it. However, because I would probably only apply this in the morning when my fingers are clean, I think it is a forgivable point.
