Calvin Klein’s new CK One cosmetic collection has finally landed, at shock horror- Debenhmas!
The mega-brand eschewed industry favourites Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichs in favour of a more down-to-earth home. Which should give us all hope on their intentions for the brand, and most importantly the price bracket.
The collection which features foundations, lipsticks and mascara aims to be the ultimate destination for all of your beauty needs.
Each product has been devised with advanced skin-enhancing formulas, with hopes for a subtle finish.
The packaging is classic Klein- minimal and monochromatic, and will enhance every beauty bag.
Here are my highlights.
CK One’s 3-in-1 liquid foundation thankfully comes in 8 shades, from porcelain to cappuccino. A blend of primer, serum and foundation, CK’s 3 in 1 face make-up is all you need to pop on in the morning.
The triple-treated pigment formula flawlessly blends with skin -irregardless of uneven skin tone.
With SPF 8, shine control and claims of lasting 11 hours, there may be a new queen of the market.
The Eyeshadow base
Eyeshadow base is often overlooked, but the fact that CK have considered it, speaks volumes.
Generally used to hold eyeshadow and avoid creasing, base is a must for those on the move all day or night.
The silky formula boasts 11-hour hold and tackles eyelid discolouration.
Priced at £11 and in 5 varying shades, this product is an essential for next season’s heavy eyes.
The Illuminator & Mascara
I’m pretty confident that everyone now knows that illuminator is a god send. Perhaps you spotted the light bouncing of the cheekbones of a friend or a red-carpet regular, but the secret to defining your cheekbones and drawing attention away from tired eyes is illumination.
CK One’s illuminator gives a pearlescent finish and comes in three shades from a peachy pink to a light gold, though the gel formula is what makes it a must-have.
CK’s mascara brings to mind Rimmel’s 3 click mascara that was sadly discontinued.
As you can see from the picture the wand is adjustable, allowing you to determine whether it’s more length, volume or curl, you want.
Flake-proof, smudge-proof and water-resistant, CK’s all-in-one defines, lengthens and adds as much drama as you can handle.
Illuminator £18, Mascara £17
Other ones to watch are the Cream & Powder Bronzer duo (£19)-a bronzer split into cream and powder with a buildable colour and double sided applicator, and the Water Fresh Face Make-up (£23)– a compact creme foundation with a soft matte finish.
