Hows it going! I am home today from work with the start of a cold. Boo! But I have been able to get the last few things changed over to my new blog name as well as get some pictures sorted.
I wanted to start with my newest Karen Murrell lipsticks; Sand Storm, Red Shimmer, Fuchsia Shock and Pink Starlet. It has taken a great amount of time for me to be happy with these photos, I am still learning to use my new camera so please forgive me that the swatches are not up to my usual standard.
Here we go!
Left to Right: Pink Starlet, Red Shimmer, Sand Strom and Fuchsia Shock.
“Inspired by the rugged natural beauty of Highway 1 USA. Sand Storm is nature at its finest which envelopes the lips in a subtly sandy brown shade.”
I am not too taken with Sand Storm, its not a bad colour, I think I just have the wrong skin tone for it. It makes me work super hard for it too look right and sometimes you don’t need a lipstick like that in your collection. Of course you have the wonderful Lani from Lani Loves who makes it look amazing, so don’t just take my word on it 😉
“Red Shimmer evokes feelings of confidence and strength. I always feel a wash of excitement come over me as I apply Red Shimmer… like something exciting is going to happen.”
I am still on the fence with Red Shimmer, sometimes it looks lovely on me, sometimes it washes me out. That might be more what I am wearing and the make-up I have on. So it is a little hard working, lucky for it, it is a nice colour I am prepared to make it work, I just need to think a little harder with this colour.
“Fuchsia Shock brings out my ultimate girl power! Strong and playful.”
I really like how bold this is, but not too over the top. It looks great with my hair (which is currently pastel purple) and is good for both day and night looks. I really enjoy wearing this.
“The blue/gold base highlights all skin, eye and hair colours, perfect for anyone who wants an easy fail-safe colour to build self-confidence.”
Pink Starlet is a lovely pink and I have enjoyed wearing it quite a bit. I wear this with more toned down looks, where I bung on some foundation, some mascara and this lipstick and get on with the day. It gives you a bit of colour without you having to worry about pairing it with the right look.
I really love using Karen Murrell lipsticks, they are great quality and are so kind to your lips. All of the shades I have stay on your lips for a reasonable amount of time, but are not too much of a pain to reapply if you need to. I don’t suffer from any bleeding or drying. Sand Storm and Red Shimmer could be a little bit patchy in places for me, but that is just the type of finishes they have I think.
I am so pleased with my little collection of lipsticks, I think my favorites so far are True Love and Violet Mousse.
Do you own any Karen Murrell Lipsticks? What shades would you like to get?
