Lipstick is one of those things you can’t live without, other than water and oxygen of course. Karen Murrell’s range of natural and glamourous lipsticks will have your lips pigmented and puckered, the sweet aroma of natural ingredients will make grin from bejewelled ear to ear.
I tried the ‘Carnation Mist’ shade, a tempting dusky rose colour that you could wear both to the races and the office. Or leaving a stain on your wine glass/ coffee mug. Completely removable of course. It was complimented a great many times, and it seems to have wedged its way into my daily routine.
It was a great treat to try this long-lasting lipstick with simply delicious ingredients: primrose oil, candelilla, carnauba wax, and sweet orange are some of the culprits. Once applied, the faint smell of sweet orange hangs in the air. The longer you wear it, the more improved your lips will feel. It’s not drying or flaking. The organic, vegan, and natural oils in this lipstick actually repair your lips from cracking. There are many other adorable shades, which will last a long time indeed – probably wouldn’t outlive a proper snog, but we can all live in hope?
Karen Murrell prides herself on producing quality cruelty-free and toxin-free lipsticks, which improve your lips’ health and are ethical to use. The lipstick cylinder itself has a cheeky slogan printed onto it: ‘nothing nasty touches my lips’, and while I think it’s presumptuous of Ms. Murrell to know my dating habits, I certainly concur that from now on I will treat my lips to ethical, preservative-free lip colour, hers in particular.
