Karen Murrell

Karen Murrell is one of New Zealand’s leading cosmetic formulators, with over 15 experience in the cosmetic industry already under her belt. Her philosophy is twofold: stick to natural ingredients that provide health benefits and are better for the environment, and always strive for high-functionality. “I had a skincare range but was always fascinated with lipstick. I created a few colours, just as a gift for my girlfriends, but everyone sung their praises so I started manufacturing them," says Karen.  "Lipstick is an instant facelift. It has the same feel-good factor as a beautiful bunch of flowers.” Read More >
