Korres, the Greek line of body and skincare products, has just launched a color cosmetics collection. (I don't know how to say huzzah! in Greek, but you'll just have to imagine it.)
Like Korres skincare products, the homeopathic cosmetics are made with botanical ingredients such as cherry oil, passion fruit oil, shea butter, green tea, and vitamin E and C. The products are free of petroleum derivatives such as mineral oil and propylene glycol, and there are minimal parabens and silicone compounds — which is good news for eco-conscious makeup fiends.
A few of these items are going straight to the top of my shopping list. (Mango butter lipstick, anyone?) For more about the Korres line, just
The colors are largely based in earth tones, so the overall Korres look is natural and pretty rather than glamorous or bold. For instance, the lip colors are mostly sheer, and the eye shadows have some gorgeous shimmery olive and brown shades. I'm disappointed that the Ginger and Vitamins Foundation is available in only six colors; though, it pretty much restricts the product to women with fair to medium complexions. Still, the other color products seem like they'd work for just about anyone, so I'm excited to try them out. I'll share an update after I have time to check out some of these products. If you already have done so, let me know what you think!
