Karen Murrell Violet Mousse
“I designed Violet Mousse to be worn at a breakfast meeting in the morning to after dinner drinks and still be appropriate. This is the ultimate little black dress of lipsticks.”
Candelilla (Euphorbia cerifera)
The candelilla plant grows in northern Mexico. Plants growing in the hottest areas produce a protective covering, which produces a 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. The milling process reduces particle size and ensures even suspension and distribution.
