Whilst I was shopping on Nuciya a couple of months back, the product at the top of my wishlist was a Karen Murrell lipstick that Amber had just launched on the site. I had my eye on them for a while since before even going green but choosing the right colour was the hard part…they’re all so pretty!
In the end I went for Carnation Mist which Karen describes as her “ultimate tribute to femeninity” and I think it’s gorgeous! The key ingredients in the lipsticks are candelilla wax, evening primrose oil, castor oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and carnauba wax. These ingredients give the lipstick a gorgeous semi-matte finish and the cinnamon & orange essential oils make the lipstick smell just like Christmas…perfect for this time of year!
The lipstick goes on smoothly and is very pigmented. It is a matte shade and has no shimmer but it has a lovely gloss to it. It isn’t the most long-lasting lipstick however it’s really moisturising and feels lovely on your lips so I don’t mind having to re-apply.
What’s really cool about the lipsticks is that the packaging biodegrades in 100 days so they’re environmentally friendly too.
