Erborian Matte or Rouge for lips?

Whether you like your matte lip, your shiny lip or something in between, one thing I know for certain is I don't like a sticky or tacky glosses and I don't like anything which makes my lip feel as though you have been dipped into cement.
Erborian Matte or Rouge for lips?
Erborian is one of my favourite brands and one I have enjoyed discovering over the last 18 months or so, whenever there is a new product I get a little excited because with Erborian you get a mixture of Korean and French loveliness all rolled into one.  Lip products are something Erborian do a lot of products in, but is the one area I hadn't really got to know until recently.

It is said in Korea, the world capital of sophisticated beauty rituals, the skin is not the only part of the face where care is considered essential; the lips are considered to be a real asset of beauty and seduction, and they are also the object of meticulous attention through nourishing, soothing rituals.

Rouge for Lips and Matte for Lips are the latest releases from Erborian and they are two nourishing balms that tint and embellish the lips.  What Erborian have done with these two products is develop a hybrid which is a cross between makeup and skincare.  Both balms are delicately scented and they give you the chance to play with both colour and texture whilst caring for your lips, so depending on your choice of finish there is a choice of balm.

My favourite product of the two is Matte for Lips a product which promised velvet lips with a matte finish for a healthy glow effect. I really like the ultra smooth texture which has a really soft finish. As it is applied, the balm glides across and envelopes the lips that leave them feeling nourished and hydrated.

Enriched with nourishing Camellia oil, known for its antioxidant properties which helps to sooth, prevent sign of ageing and dehydration plus Beeswax which helps to nourish and prevent dehydration.

The second product, Rouge for Lips is definitely where makeup meets skincare and coats your lips with an ultra-intense shade of red and it is much more pigmented than I had expected it to be, but it is a delight to use.

Again, as with Matte for Lips, it is enriched with Cameillia Oil and Beeswax for its antioxidant and nourishing properties which prevent dehydration and nourish the skin but there is also the inclusion of Shea Butter which really helps nourish your lips.

Both of these products can be applied using a lip brush or your finger and both can be used with other products.  If you are a fan of a red lip, then using Rouge for Lips as a base can really intensify the red lipstick shade and then you can apply Matte for Lips over the top.  Equally you can use either product alone or with absolutely any other lip product that you have, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.  Each one of these products retails for £18 here on the Erborian website.
