Calvin Klein are soon to launch their brand new makeup line, named ‘ckone’ which will be hitting Debenhams stores this September.
The range is divided into three categories – ‘Look Real’ are the base products such as foundations and concealers, ‘Define Yourself’ includes mascara, blusher and bronzer – things that define and contour your face. The third category is ‘Intensity’, which includes everything else from lipsticks to eye shadows to add some colour and diversity to your look.
I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a few of the products to show you guys which I’m really excited about!
Mascara – Everyone is going to love this mascara, I can tell. It is a truly unique, one of a kind, product which I can’t wait to review. This mascara is lengthening and volumizing in one. When you turn a cap at the top of the lid, the brush expands to help lengthen the lashes, and then you can twist the cap again to make it shorter to help add volume. This retails at £17 which is a little pricey, but because this mascara is so unique it’s kinda worth it! Stay tuned for a full review so I can show you exactly what I mean!
3-in-1 Face Makeup SPF8 £25 – This is a 3-in-1 product, containing a serum, primer and foundation all in one. There are currently 8 shades available, ranging from light to dark, but I’m hoping they extend this range and bring out a few more! I do absolutely love the packaging of this product, it’s very nifty and you can even see inside the bottle on one side (great for knowing how much product you have left).
Powder Eyeshadow Quad £25 – There will be 8 different eyeshadow quads available which are all gorgeous and highly pigmented. Pictured above is the #810 Smoking palette, which contains a blue, silver, black and white shadows, all of which can be used wet or dry.
Pure Colour Lipstick £13 – All of new ckone lipsticks smell absolutely sublime – better than vanilla. They are also really pigmented and intense. The colour above is called #110 Wow but I’m also lusting after a shade called Sin City, which is a stunning peachy pink.
Also in the range – cream and powder blush duos, a treat lip kit palette which includes a scrub, balm, colour and gloss in one, brow pencil and gel duo, gloss sticks for the eyes allowing you to apply a glossy, grungy colour, and lots more.
The first thing I love about this brand is the packaging which is monochrome and sleek. The black bits of the packaging have a rubbery feel which I love; the range was created to be perfect for men as well as woman, and the packaging definitely makes it look more unisex. I love the fact that a lot of the products have more than one use so you don’t need to carry around multiple products – like the 3-in-1 foundation, the brow pencil which includes a clear mascara at the other end, a cream AND powder blush in one etc.
The products are already available to purchase online here and will be in stores on Sept 23rd in Debenhams stores.
Also – stay tuned for full reviews of all of the products featured in this post. If there is anything you’d like to see reviewed/swatched first, then leave me a comment and I’ll get on it first!
