Karen Murrell Lipstick Natural Lipstick in Driven Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

If you are like me, then you may have taken pause to consider just how much lipstick and lip gloss that you have ingested over the course of your makeup-wearing life, and it may also leave you a bit disconcerted. For that reason, I have been gravitating toward using lip products with fewer chemicals, and I am pleased that Karen Murrell Lipstick Natural Lipsticks are free of harsh chemicals. In fact, the packaging asserts, "Nothing nasty touches my lips" which is affirmed by the list of ingredients on the box.
About Karen Murrell,

Karen Murrell, a female founder based in New Zealand, has always had a passion for cosmetics, she noticed a gap in the market with no sustainable, clean yet luxurious lipstick options which is where Karen decided if she wanted to see these products she would need to design and create them. Karen Murrell is not only passionate about what goes in her lipsticks but that she has a shade for every skin tone and occasion. Karen knows lipsticks sparks confidence and empowerment when applied so she wants to ensure the range has a shade to evoke this feeling with every application for every wearer

According to Karen Murrell,

A moisturising base means that the more you wear it, the more hydrated and nourished your lips will be. 

Wear our lipstick with confidence knowing that your beautiful lips are safe for you. All of our ingredients are natural, such as avocado oil and candelilla helping to produce nourishing and beautiful lipstick.

Clean. Beautiful. Long-lasting wear. Daring, deliberate, and carefree, the right lip shade should show off your best qualities. Driven is the perfect nude lip shade to do just that. Its mocha hues are tinted with a hint of red that creates the perfect accompaniment for the decisive wearer. So whether you’re out on an errand or owning a room, your style, look, and desire is Driven.

Karen Murrell Lipstick Natural Lipstick in Driven is a moisturizing lipstick that has amazing longevity. I have found that so many moisturizing lipstick formulas tend to have decidedly short wear-times because their emollience often leads to the need for frequent application. This lipstick, while nourishing and hydrating, clings to the lips and lasts for many hours on me. It glides across the lips effortlessly, deposits color evenly and it doesn't bleed or settle into lip lines.
Driven is described as, "the perfect nude lip shade.... Its mocha hues are tinted with a hint of red"– and I would add that on me it reads as a perfect nude mauve shade.

  1. Over the past 2.5 years, I haven't been wearing lipstick nearly as much as I used to, and I forgot about how important it is to wear a lipstick with organic and food-grade ingredients. Bite Beauty used to be a favorite of mine for that reason, but alas it is no more. I'm happy to know about Karen Murrell lipsticks now. Plus, I love the engraving on the bullet!

    1. The same is true for me as well, Allison. Basically I never wear anything other than lip balm when I leave the house since I do not go anywhere without wearing a mask. Therefore, the only time that I wear lipsticks and lip glosses are when I am having a meeting on Zoom! I loved Bite Beauty as well, and Karen Murrell lipsticks are worth trying to fill that gap!
