It is of no surprise that I’m a lover of a bright lip colour, any excuse is a good excuse to add a pop of colour to your makeup look. Karen Murrell Lipstick in Fuchsia Shock is not only a gorgeous shade, it is full of natural goodness so nothing nasty touches your lips.
The first thing I noticed and loved about this lipstick is the packaging. Each lipstick comes in a 100% recyclable box with it’s own original artwork, encasing a sleek matte black lipstick tube. From there is the unmistakable cinnamon scent. I’m a lover of chai latte so a cinnamon scented lipstick is right up my ally. I’m not going to lie it also tastes slightly of cinnamon, not that I recommend eating it! It’s way too pretty for that.
As the name suggests, this is a gorgeous fuchsia shade that is bold without being over-powering. The formulation of this lipstick is silky, gliding on the lips with ease.
Karen Murrell Lipstick ‘s take pride in ensuring all of their lipsticks are packed full of natural ingredients without sacrificing quality. Have you heard of the Candelilla Plant? Neither had I before now. You can find it in northern Mexico, due to it’s hot dry environment it produces a hard wax. Not surprisingly known as candelilla wax. This along with evening primrose oil and castor oil create a moisturising glossy lipstick that loves your lips.
I was expecting the pigment that of this product to be a little better. While you can build the colour up it does take a few layers. Once applied Fuchsia Shock is moisturising and stays well on the lips, as long as you are not planning to eat or drink. It doesn’t slide right off the lips but it’s not super long lasting.
One of the perks of this lipstick is it wears evenly. A pet hate of mine is when a lipstick wears unevenly leaving a ring around your lips that has been there for goodness only knows how long! Not ideal.
Other Karen Murrell Lipstick Shades
“The best way to introduce brighter lipstick shades, if you don’t normally wear them, is to start off with trying a subtle colour that has just enough brightness in it so that you get used to wearing colour first. Then you can step up to a more vibrant shade. It is important when choosing these colours that they complement your skin and hair tone – don’t be shy and be secure in the colour that you wear.” Karen Murrell, Creative Director, Karen Murrell Lipsticks.
I have to agree with that, the only way to get used to wearing brighter colours is to start wearing brighter colours. 🙂 Start small and work your way up. Karen Murrell has a range of gorgeous colours. I would love to get my hands on 01 Moisture Stick, 06 Carnation Mist, 18 Sugar Rush and 19 Racy Rata!
