Cruelty-Free Product Reviews

January 17, 2019

Karmela Cosmetics is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that focuses on providing great color options for women of all skin tones. All shades are formulated without parabens, GMO's, petrochemicals, triclosan, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, and talc. Additionally, the luxurious formula is highly pigmented, with long lasting color and a silk matte finish. The company is dedicated to improving the lives of women and donates 10% of its net profits from every lipstick to organizations devoted to women's healing and empowerment. Causes include eating disorders, breast cancer, and endometriosis.

If you're interested in trying a lipstick in the purple family, give Karmela's Rebel a shot. I honestly had some doubts about straying from my red-brown/spicy comfort zone, but after trying it out, I was pleasantly surprised! The smokey lavender is a fun shade to use this time of year to shake up the winter doldrums, or sport for Valentine's Day. It also provides a nice accent to a pale pink or light blue top. In a nutshell- a little extra pop, but not over the top...with, of course, Karmela's signature magnetic snap-on cap!
