a perfect pout
Gloss lovers beware; we may just have found the lipstick to convert you.
As much as I love a splash of colour on the lip, all too often I find my lips dried from lipstick and I’m left with a less-than-perfect pout. Thus, lipstick is often demoted by midday in favour of a tint or gloss, – or so it was, until the recent discovery of Karen Murrell’s range of lipsticks. Although touted as a lipstick, we’re more inclined to think of it as hybrid between a balm and a stick. The longwearing formula actually cares for your lips as it imparts one of the natural, richly pigmented shades. The Karen Murrell range fuses lip-loving ingredients such as avocado oil and evening primrose oil to provide moisture and hydration, along with our particular kryptonite – the addition of cinnamon, to aid in plumping the lips (we must admit we are rather addicted to the smell of it too). I can’t go past the new ‘coral dawn’ hue, one of the four new shades that has just been added to the range. The tangerine organic shade hits all the right notes as we welcome the new season.
