New Zealand cosmetics label, Karen Murrell, has partnered with Look Good Feel Better New Zealand and Australia, a charity which supports women going through cancer treatment. With every lipstick purchased in-store and online, the Karen Murrell brand will donate one lipstick to the important program.
Karen Murrell, Helping Women Look Good and Feel Better
Look Good Feel Better is an international charity that supports people living with cancer. The charity has supported 40,000 women since its inception in New Zealand in 1992 and covers 36 regions in the country. Look Good Feel Better holds group workshops that teaches beauty techniques to cancer patients that help them combat the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments. The charity slogan is “Facing cancer with confidence,” and the workshops enable this. They provide a well-needed distraction from treatment where women have the opportunity to relax, have fun and feel special.
The partnership between Karen Murrell and Look Good Feel Better ran for three months earlier this year and was a success in donating an impressive 11,078 total lipsticks to Look Good Feel Better Australia and New Zealand.
“I am beyond thrilled,” Karen Murrell said. “In addition to the donations, we know our partnership with Look Good Feel Better helped to raise awareness of what their amazing charity does for people during cancer treatment on both sides of the Tasman. It was an honour to align with such a wonderful charity and ensure that we can do our bit in helping women undergoing cancer treatment feel more empowered and confident”.
Karen Murrell lipsticks are completely natural from the product to packaging. The lipsticks are made from avocado oil, evening primrose oil, candelilla, carnauba wax, cinnamon and sweet orange and avoid all of the bad stuff that can be added to cosmetics. The manufacturing process is cruelty-free and they don’t test on animals.
Although the partnership may have ended you are still able to purchase Karen Murrell lipsticks at retailers nationwide and online.
