“ Brand: Calvin Klein / Type: Lipgloss / Suitable for: Lip „
I actually got sent this CK lip balm for joining up with an online bingo website over a year ago. This is one of the lip glosses that resides at the bottom of my handbag for just in case moments. The colour I was sent is clear with a bit of sparkle in it so it goes with most items. The shade is called jezebel and has tiny bits of cosmic glitter in it which look lovely in the tube and are a little bit less visible on the lips!
The packaging for this is a square shape with a clear body and black lid. The shape helps with grip and makes it very easy to open. Inside the lid is a brush with an applicator tip that is sponge like and comes out fully loaded every time. I find that this feels a little bit gritty on the lips, that is because of the glitter but it is a little bit irritating.
This doesn't stay on for very long at all, especially if you are eating or drinking. It is not very sticky which is good and feels quite smooth except for the glitter bits. It has no taste to it which is also a bonus. Looks wise it presents a subtle shimmer and I think this looks a lot better used over a lip stain or lip stick.
Debenhams sell CK lipgloss for £12 a pop but you can pick these up a lot cheaper on ebay. I also remember TJ Hughes used to sell a lot of CK branded make up for under a fiver.
I think this lipgloss is OK but not brilliant. It has its bad points but it's still a decent neutral shiny top coat that I am happy to use. It's not one I'll be hunting out for repurchase but it was OK as a sort of freebie!
