I had only ever purchased one brand of lipstick and until very recently would not have even entertained the idea that another could be as good.
Enter Karen Murrell Lipsticks.
So much to love in this range. Seriously – from the beautiful formulation that applies effortlessly on my lips, a warm and slightly spicy flavour and scent, it has wicked staying power and a range of shades to cover off every need and want. Plus you wanna know what else? They are vegetarian!
Say what?!? These lippies are made with no animal-based materials and are not tested on animals either. Rather, they contain:
Avocado Oil – provides lips with hydration and protection
Cinnamon – plumps lips to make them look fuller
Evening Primrose Oil – rich in Omega 6, soothes and moisturises dry lips
Carnauba Wax – renowned for its high melting point, ensures Karen Murrell lipsticks don’t melt in your handbag!
This beautiful shade named Violet Mousse was designed by Karen to be “a great natural hue with just enough depth to ensure you won’t look washed out or sallow when paired with minimal make up – think dewy skin, flushed cheeks, lashings of mascara and great brows!”
And that is exactly what it is – a perfectly neutral shade that works with every outfit, on every skin tone. The name is a little deceptive because Violet made me think purple or lilac or mauve (colours I would never wear in a lipstick) and yet it is none of those. It’s a soft coral colour that looks natural and effortless. It’s the perfect colour for a lipstick newbie and also for those who are seasoned lipstick wearers who love a natural colour for low-key looks.
Simply leave a comment below telling me why you’d like to win.
I will draw the winner on Friday 22 May and announce the winner that night via email (make sure your email is accurate).
CONGRATULATIONS TO: Anissa Ljanta. I have emailed you!
