Calvin Klein Taffy Pink Lipgloss: CK at TK

099
Calvin Klein Delicious Light Glistening Lipgloss
I picked up a pretty pink Calvin Klein lipgloss for a bargainous price at TK Maxx this week and thought I’d give you a head’s up as they had quite a large collection.  I was in the Belfast city centre store – and know good old TK isn’t always consistent across its branches - but there was quite a lot at well reduced prices, so it could be worth a look.
I was very restrained – sidelining the powder, bronzer, eyeshadow, lipstick (all this season apparently) – and only purchasing this gloss in Taffy.

Calvin Klein lipgloss in 'Taffy'
I’ve never used a Calvin Klein gloss before. Delicious Light Glistening Lipgloss #315 in 'Taffy' is of quite a fine consistency, not overly sticky or gloopy and is applied with a doe wand. It’s difficult to apply too much (yes I tried) but a second coat does make it look much more pink. It’s really quite sheer with just one light coat.

It’s quite a cool pink, with lavender undertones and a subtle gold shimmer, barely detectable on the lips, but enough to stop it looking too ‘solid’. The packaging is light plastic in the usual CK style - simple and chic.

I like how it’s packaged in this little resealable clear plastic pouch.

And in context on my wee tired face, at the end of a very long, long day (can't believe I'm including this)!

This cost me £4.99 instead of the usual £12.00. The cheapest I have found it online is at Lavish for £7.95 exc p&p. Have you used any Calvin Klein glosses or other make-up that you'd recommend?
