You might be wondering why I am not introducing another bright neon lipstick shade to you. Actually, both my kids are a little under the weather – so I am unable to do fresh FOTDs and have to rely on products which have already been photographed in use. Thank God for that repository! Today I have for you a Calvin Klein lipgloss with sparkle! Lets see how it fares on my barometer…
The Product Details (from the website):
A non-sticky luscious lip gloss. Adds transparent, lightweight luster to lips. Provides rich, glamorous colour. Infused with a hint of pleasant flavor. Creates a soft, dewy & shimmering pout.
• Provides sheer, radiant shine color for lips
• Enriched with marine collagen micro-spheres
• Replenishes moisture & boosts volume
• Leaves your lips look fuller & more glamorous
• Wear alone or over lipstick to magnify color
• Dermatologist tested
US $17 for 6.5ml
The lipgloss has a transparent plastic bottle which is square rather than round. It comes with a applicator which is like the ones which comes in nail polishes. It’s extremely easy to apply and use around the lips curves.
My experience with Calvin Klein – Fully Delicious Sheer Plumping Lip Gloss – Sparkle Purple Haze:
Color: The colour is supposed to be “Purple” and looks purple in the bottle. However, on application, it’s fairly translucent with gold and purple sparkle in it. I tried a hand swatch – it is not featuring the product properly. I even tried it as a lip swatch for you all, but though the glossiness and sparkle are clearly visible to naked eye – the camera does not catch it. It only shows my pigmented lips.
So, to give you an idea of the product, I have applied it on top of a dark lipstick – this brings out the sparkle clearly.
Texture: The texture is obviously glossy and a little sticky.
Pigmentation: Its sheer so can’t really comment on the pigmentation.
Lasting power:On its own, it lasts about 2-2.5hours. On top of a lipstick, it lasts a little longer.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Calvin Klein – Fully Delicious Sheer Plumping Lip Gloss – Sparkle Purple Haze:
1. A sheer lipgloss with gold and purple sparkle. Can easily be applied on top of any lippy.
2. Easy to use applicator
3. Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips
4. Felt hydrating
5. Decent packaging
Cons of Calvin Klein – Fully Delicious Sheer Plumping Lip Gloss – Sparkle Purple Haze:
1. Calvin Klein products are not easily available in India – except online.
2. Has a artificially sweet smell – like bubblegum.
Yes, a 3/5 product.
Do my lips feel extra plumped? Not really…its pretty much like any other glossy product. The sparkle gets pronounced by the intensity of the base colour used. On its own, it just adds shine and sparkle but does nothing to hide the pigmentation. Please note that the lip swatches are extreme close-up – hence, the sparkle looks loud and in your face. It isn’t so pronounced from a distance.
