Calvin Klein is a brand I see all the time on adverts or posters and however much I like the underwear, never could I pay that much for pretty generic pants! However the lipsticks are always on clearance somewhere, all I can guess is that CK makeup didn't launch very well or something, but I don't care as they are amazing quality! Fitting with the brands sleek yet simple design, the lipsticks come in black square tubes that with the shiny finish are easy to keep clean unlike those of NARS where it gathers every slight piece of dirt! AMAZINGLY, they are also cruelty free so whoop whoop!
I currently have 3 shades in my little collection and would love more but trying to hold back my spending at the moment as I have lots of bills due in October! Ethereal was my first CK lipstick, and is a gorgeous pink nude that applies so softly and easily. It is a cream shade that has a blue tone to but is what I'd call a pure pink, like a blush!
When I was staying in Sherwood, I went to the East Midlands Designer Outlet in Mansfield and found the beauty outlet straight away! I can't remember the name of the store but it had a lot of brands you'd expect like W7 and Rimmel yet it also had a few things that were still being sold like the matte lipsticks from Kate Moss! I loved it and highly recommend a visit! Cosmopolitan is a orangey red that is perfect for a daytime red for those who don't want a in your face blue toned red (all though I find it so hard to resist!) and completes any look perfectly! I love it with a cat eye!
Finally, Desire is a purple, one of my few purple lipsticks. It also has a blue undertone, yet it is still a purple! It has slight sparkle whilst in the tube but that doesn't seem to do anything on the lips, possibly just helps with the cream texture!
Calvin Klein lipsticks are available on Fragrance Direct here for £1.99! Do you own any CK lipsticks? Toodle pip till next time! xxx
