Brand: Calvin Klein
Range: Delicious Light Glistening Lip Gloss
Shade: Taffy
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Taffy is a pale milky pink with subtle golden shimmers.
  • I hesitated whether to review this shade, given it’s discontinued – but ESPECIALLY because this lipgloss TASTED OFF possibly due to the product reaching way past its shelf life.  I received it as a GWP and since it’s a pretty shade I thought I’d swatch it anyway
  • Verdict: Just to emphasise how long it’s been since the line was discontinued, Temptalia’s swatch of this shade was dated 2008!  Despite being a lovely shade I wouldn’t recommend buying it due to the formula tasting off.  Other than that, the shade is lovely & a close dupe would be Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in “Pout” or Benefit Prrrowl.

 

Very pretty, but I’m afraid this lipgloss has gone way past its shelf life.
Don’t buy it.

This lipgloss was from a Gift with Purchase.

Shade: Trust
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Semi-pigmented with a high shine finish, Trust is a vibrant coral shade with very subtle golden shimmers.
  • Moisturising & doesn’t feather or sink into lip lines
  • Verdict: CK cosmetics appear to be discontinued, with only discount retailers stocking this online.  If you are after a similar shade, try the less shimmery but more tangy Kit Cosmetics “Fire Lighter”. Alternatively, if you want to amp up the shimmer, try Benefit Full Finish Lipstick”Saucy”.

  • This is my 2nd Calvin Klein lipstick (my first was over 10 years ago) and I wish I could tell you where it’s officially stocked because I can’t seem to find links other than discount retailers.
  • Moisturising, creamy lipstick that leaves a satin sheen.
  • Decent wear and leaves lips supple and soft.
  • Rose Berry is a rosy take on “my lips but better” that’s great for work and weekends.
  • It’s actually a really high quality lipstick and is a shame it doesn’t seem to be officially stocked on counters.
  • Verdict: It’s only $13.50 AUD on Strawberrynet if you want to grab this great everyday shade while it’s still floating around the internet.

I received this product as a ‘Gift with Purchase’ from Strawberrynet.com
