Karen Murrell lipsticks – Red Shimmer & Fuschia Shock

Friday, July 31st 2015 Makeup

I have written multiple times about how lovely Karen Murrell lipsticks are. They are a beautiful texture, a great range of colours, aren’t tested on animals, and are from a New Zealand brand. Red Shimmer and Fuschia Shock are two from Karen Murrell’s lipstick line which I have recently been sent. Like the rest of the line, these lipsticks are gorgeous.I love the attention to detail that they give the packaging, with illustrations that fit with the theme of the shade.

One of the many things I love about Karen Murrell lipsticks is that they are creamy, whilst still retaining a decent lasting power on my lips. They are richly pigmented, and I often find myself getting complimented when I am wearing one of the many shades from the Karen Murrell range. I have swatches of Red Shimmer and Fuschia Shock below, to show how lovely the shades are.

In the photo below I am wearing Fuschia Shock, letting it speak for itself without much other makeup on.

From late July if you purchase any two Karen Murrell Lipsticks you will receive a gorgeous Karen Murrell scarf. Only available while stocks last.

Other Karen Murrell lipsticks I’ve posted are Rymba Rhythm, Sugar Rush, Coral Dawn, and True Love. I’ve also tried Racy Rata, Pink Starlet, Violet Mousse, and the Moisture Stick which is a great balm. From neutral to vampy, there’s something for everyone! I’ve bought a few of these for gifts in the past, and my friends have loved them.

Karen Murrell Lipsticks are available at selected pharmacies and health food stores in New Zealand. For more information or to locate your nearest stockist, please visit www.karenmurrell.com

  • These colours are gorgeous, and the fact that they don’t test on animals makes me adore them even more!

    The scarf looks so pretty, might finally be time to pick up some of these…

    • It’s lovely and soft, will be perfect in spring I think. You should definitely pick some up.

  • Love these two lippies! Fuschia shock looks stunning on you, I’m not sure I pull it off as well as you do! I love Red Shimmer though and it has quickly become my go-to red, even though its way more orange based then I would usually go for.

    Great post! x

    • Thanks Lizzy! I haven’t been wearing the Red Shimmer as much because I tend to stick to cooler reds but it’s very pretty 🙂
