Karen Murrell Lipstick

Where I got it: I got sent  these for review.  These are available in 11 colours and a clear lip balm for $30.  You can purchase these on Karen Murrell website, or find your local stockists here.

What I got: I got two Karen Murrell lipsticks in 03 Pink Starlet and 09 Sand Storm. Both colours looks amazing. Karen Murrell lipsticks are totally natural, contains no mineral oil, no animal products, parabens or preservatives!  Even the packaging looks great and is totally biodegradable (dissolves back to mother nature within 100 days! Wow).  They all contain Candelilla, Evening Primrose oil and Castor oil, they smell and taste nice (smells like cola bottle lollies)!

How I find it: Both colours looks great on my skintone and the black packaging is so sleek!

Sandstorm is a lovely creamy nude colour inspired by the rugged, natural beauty of Highway 1 USA. The subtly sandy brown shade has no sheen or shimmer to it therefore it is really easy to wear. My natural lip colour is quite pigmented therefore it was quite hard to find a nude lipstick that doesn’t make me look washed out or looking unnatural. However, with 2 swipes on well exfoliated lips, this colour made me believe I can wear nude lipstick again!

Pink Starlet actually took my interest more when I opened both lipsticks. The pink/red toned lipstick has a blue/gold base that is perfect for every skintone.  The colour is buildable, and it can be a sheer colour if you apply one swipe. 2-3 swipes will give you gorgeous colour!

Overall: The formula for the lipsticks are amazing. They are creamy and soft, I don’t think I need a lip balm! I wonder how I have never tried them before? The colour swatch on the website doesn’t really do these colours justice, you really need to try them on to see that lovely sandy colour of Sandstorm! I have been wearing Pink Starlet everyday to work and it looks natural and not too strong, just the way I love it!

Repurchase? Oh, yes! I already have my eyes on a few other colours – 04 Red Shimmer (an amazing bright red), 08 Coral Dawn (I love love love coral) and 11 Scarlet Blaze (rich velvety red).
