Matte lipstick that feels so silky from Karmela Cosmetics

Karmela Cosmetics Silky Matte Lipstick

A beautiful lipstick can not only change your look but it can change your day. It lifts your spirits, it makes you look lively, and it enhances your mood. Karmela Cosmetics has created a company that creates lipstick and only lipstick.

The founder of Karmela Cosmetics, Nechami, is a professional makeup artist that wasn’t able to find makeup that met her standards. For lips what she wanted was vibrant color, non-drying and long-lasting, a luxurious feel, and she wanted her lipsticks not to contain harsh chemicals. Rather than sit around waiting for that to occur, she established Karmela.

Beauty Info Zone was sent two colors and I just about “kvelled” (the word kvell is derived from Yiddish kveln, meaning “to be delighted,” which, in turn, comes from the Middle High German word quellen, meaning “to well, gush, or swell.”). It’s not every day that I receive colors that are the exact ones I’d pick out by myself but the two I have, Entice and Eternity, are great Marcia shades.

The lipsticks are described as a silky matte with a long lasting formula. They are cruelty free, gluten-free, and are without parabens, GMOs, phthalates, triclosan, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, or talc.  Karmela is certified by the Leaping Bunny program.There is a light fragrance to them that’s a little minty in the tube but I don’t notice it once on my lips. Since they contain lanolin I’m sure they aren’t considered to be vegan.

Here’s just one more thing to love about Karmela: “Color is power, and at Karmela Cosmetics, we are dedicated to women. We donate 10% of the net profits from every lipstick to organizations devoted to women’s healing and empowerment: eating disorders, breast cancer, endometriosis and more.”

ENTICE is a pink nude but much more on the warm pink side than the nude side. It is very creamy so it’s a pleasure to apply. I’m pretty lazy and skip lipliner most days and I don’t seem to need one with my Karmela lipsticks. Since the lipsticks are matte I always make sure though that my lips are exfoliated.

ETERNITY is described as a baby pink “creating a sense of eternal beauty, femininity, tenderness and hope.” On my colorless lips it’s darker than a baby pink so it is an easy shade to wear.

With these two shades I actually have 3 that I can wear since the combination of them gives me a beautiful pinky peach similar to the blush shades I like to wear.

High-Pigment, Silk Matte Lipstick; Naturally Formulated with Minerals, Antioxidants & Vitamins for a Weightless, Long-Lasting lip.

  • Infused with Vitamin E (antioxidant)
  • All natural plant waxes (carnauba & candellia) keep lipstick smooth & creamy
  • Paraffin wax prevents moisture evaporation & helps to keep lipstick on lips
  • Candellia wax protects against moisture loss

10% of net profits from sales of Entice and Eternity are donated to National Breast Cancer Foundation

You won’t believe that these are matte lipsticks once on because they really do feel silky and extremely comfortable. I can see the matte in the mirror but I don’t feel it and I don’t feel any pulling. They are lipsticks, not liquid lipsticks, so they aren’t meant to be necessarily long lasting. Instead I find a light stain left after eating or drinking. Reapplying isn’t a problem.

All in all I think these are great lipsticks and I’m eager to see the next step that Karmela Cosmetics makes since they have a winner this first time around.  —  Marcia
