Karen Murrell Lipstick Carnation Mist

5 Dec 2014

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!

SELFIE TIME!



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.

  3. The colour looks great on you! You are so good at choosing the right lippie colour. Lippie is not a strong point for me and I always feel like I can't pull it off! What foundation are you wearing you look luminous and flawless! x

  25. What I love about the Karen Murrell lipsticks is that they are so wearable. Usually (before my green beauty days) I would walk into a MAC store and come out only liking 1 or 2 shades that can be worn everyday. But I seriously I love all of the Karen Murrell shades...some of them are dramatic but they're still wearable and beautiful. They don't make you feel like a clown wearing too much lipstick haha!

    Carnation mist looks beautiful on you btw!
