Karen Murrells’s new lipstick colour Scarlett Blaze was inspired by the total opulence, glitz and glamour of the 1920’s. An era filled with endless parties, luxurious lifestyles and women that drank, danced, voted and adorned themselves with rich and vividly coloured lipstick.
The new statement colour adds a new offering to Karen Murrell’s current lipstick range. It’s caviar like velvety deep cerise/plum colour is richer than any of the reds that Karen Murrell has designed before, projecting lips with a show-stopping vivacious colour that is on trend to be this season must-have lipstick colour .
Candelilla (Euphorbia cerifera)
The candelilla plant grows in the semi-arid environment of northern Mexico. Plants growing in the hottest and driest areas produce a protective covering, which yields a hard vegetable wax of superior quality after processing. Candelilla wax is yellow, and is celebrated in lipstick production for its hard, brittle, glossy and slightly tacky properties.
Evening primrose oil (Oenothera biennis)
Rich in omega-6, soothing and very moisturising.
Castor oil (Ricinus communis)
Excellent emollient properties and a high-acting pigment dispersant. Due to its high viscosity, castor oil also helps to suspend pigment in the manufacturing process to avoid settling when hot. KM Lipstick pigments are milled into castor oil in a ball mill. The milling process reduces particle size and ensures even suspension and distribution.
