The Perfect Nude!

Cordovan Natural (#02) was the Day 22 gift in a 2017 Beauty Advent Calendar. The colour "Cordovan" is described as a deep red-brown, but this is a beautiful nude shade with cinnamon and peach tones that suits all skin tones.

The 4g lipstick bullet is encased in a cylindrical matte black plastic tube. The only part that's shiny is a ring around the outside where the lid meets the base. The sticker on the base of the tube reflects the pretty nude shade held within, and there's an expiry date and date of manufacture printed underneath the lipstick name. You may want to check the dates if you're able to, as it's better if you can buy it closer to the manufacture date, as it'll give you more time to use it. These lipsticks are good for two years from date of manufacture and most lipsticks need to be replaced after 1 to 2 years, although if their smell changes or they start to smell rancid, throw them away.

The formula of the lipstick is long-lasting and creamy, which feels very nourishing on my lips, and although I have read that many people find Karen Murrell's lipsticks to be drying, I didn't experience this. Cordovan Natural contains both Sweet Orange oil and Cinnamon Oil, so the lipstick does have an unusual scent of orange and cinnamon that tends to linger for a very long time. I can't say that I'm a fan of the smell, as I find it to be quite overpowering!

Would I purchase one of these lipsticks in future? No. As much as I love the colour of this beautiful nude shade, I really don't like the strong, lingering, overpowering scent that all of Karen Murrell's lipsticks seem to have. I tend to find that I start to feel quite ill from the smell after 20 minutes or so, and can't wait to wipe the lipstick off, just to get rid of the scent under my nose. Personally, I'd rather spend my money on a cheaper unscented drugstore brand, as I know there's no way I'm going to finish a whole lipstick bullet in two years, and I won't feel bad about replacing a cheaper brand when it's still half full.

Tips: If you find lipstick dries out your lips, apply a little lip balm while doing the rest of your make-up, and then gently wipe the excess lip balm off before applying lip liner and lipstick at the end.

Lovely nude lipstick

I really, really love this lipstick. I have been hunting for a lipstick that doesn't wash me out yet will still neutralize the colour of the pigmented lips enough for a 'nude' look and I think I've found it. It glides on easily, is quite moisturising and stays put for a few hours (but doesn't claim to be longwear so I wasn't expecting it to last through eating/drinking). It also love knowing that I'm not eating/drinking nasty chemicals.

Nice and Natural

I picked this shade up as a gift attached to a fashion magazine (thanks BR forum for the heads up).

At the moment, I am searching for the perfect nude, and this one had some great reviews.

In terms of shade, it's a very brown nude but still provides a nice natural lipstick colour.

The formula feels lovely. It's smooth and non drying. In this particular lipstick I can feel the cinnamon.

The only thing that stops it being at the top of my list, is that within half and hour, the lipstick is already half gone and needs reapplying.

So where I can I'll wear a lipstick like this. But until they can make the formula longer wearing, it won't replace the more chemical longer lasting lipsticks in my make up bag.

Tips: This shade is an easy one to wear with most things.

Love Karen Murrell Lipsticks

This is the first time I have ever tried a nude shade of lipstick. I must say since I have such pale skin I'm unconvinced that a nude shade of lipstick is the best look for me without a lot of other make up on! I have KM lipsticks in Racy Rata and a light pink shade. This is more hydrating than the Racy Rata and applies easily - no need for a lip brush. Packaging is excellent and I love that this is natural & stays on really well.

Luscious colour that feels great on your lips

I love this lipstick. The colour is beautiful and perfect for everyday use and is lasts and lasts. It tastes and smells delicious - but it's not too over the top. It feels great on your lips, both moisturising and nourishing. The lipstick itself is beautifully designed. It comes in a simple and elegant canister and to top it all off it is good for the environment. You can bury the canister in the garden when you're finished with it and it will decompose. I'm also pleased to see it hasn't been tested on animals and has no animal based ingredients. It's full of lots of natural ingredients and you can feel the difference when you wear it. This is the first time I've used anything from Karen Murrell but I love this lipstick and will definitely be wearing it a lot. I'll also be trying out some other colours and products in the range.

The best lipstick ever!!!

I just love everything about this lipstick, the packaging is sleek, sophisticated and the matte finish means it doesn't get easily dirtied in my make-up bag. The colour was fabulous (love the red one too) and it stays on for ages! The BEST thing though is the taste... the cinnamon spice flavour is delicious.

i've been looking for a new 'soft' colour lippy that stays on but doesn't dry out my lips.. I'm well intrigued! And the Cinnamon spice sounds delish! Have added it to my "to buy" list.
