There’s a new makeup brand in town, and it’s called Karamel London. Started by the Angolan powerhouse, Wesa Guimaraes, this brand is all about helping women find their self esteem and celebrating Wesa’s Angolan heritage. I got to try a few products from the brand and I am absolutely blown away by it.
One item in particular caught my attention and that is the shiny lip cream. I have been a lip gloss and lip balm lover ever since I can remember. I naturally suffer from incredibly dry lips after a lifetime of biting the skin of my lips out of stress. I have tried everything on my lips: scrubs, Vaseline, lanolin, even nappy rash creams! I have worked my way through every top brand of gloss, oil and balm including but not limited to: Chanel lip gloss, Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream, and Clarins lip oil. They all helped, but needed to be applied very liberally and frequently. And underneath, the skin always stayed dry.
I didn’t hold out much hope for the Karamel London lip cream. I started applying it though, and was immediately struck at how thinly it applied yet how instantly moisturising it was. I didn’t need to put a thick layer of gunk on my lips! The thinnest swipe of it and my lips are beautifully soft and the pigment makes them look just the right amount of shiny. The moisture works its way right into my lips, transforming my sharp dry skin edges into beautifully plump and kissable lips.
And best of all? One thin layer lasts well over an hour! I am blown away by this product and want one in every colour!
