CALVIN KLEIN Delicious Light Glistening Lip Gloss – Taffy


CALVIN KLEIN, LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC20, Yishan | by — September 28, 2011

Tags: ,

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.

MAC Lipglass – Good Times


LIP GLOSS, Lips, MAC, NC20, Yishan | by — September 22, 2011

Tags: , ,

Brand: MAC
Range: Tinted Lipglass
Shade: Good Times (MAC Me Over Collection – LE)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Good Times is a “pale mauve”  with a sheer milky high shine finish.
  • This shade was used in the MAC Me Over  “elegantly edgy” transformation for Xee & Sharon, featuring cool-toned smoky greys whites and beiges.
  • I love Xee’s androgynous look the most, pairing the pale lip with uber-bold brows and eyes.
  • As this lipglass is semi-sheer, recommend wearing this on top of lips prepped with a nude lip liner or lipstick.

Brand: Korres
Range: Lip Butter
Flavour: Guava
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Read my previous review of the Korres Lip Butter formula here.
  • Guava is a milky lip butter in guava scent, formulated without synthetic fragrances
  • As with all Korres products, they are formulated without mineral oil, silicone, propylene glycol and ethanolamine.
  • Verdict: Recommended for those that want to add a milky finish to their lips, or want a colourless option for night time.  In my opinion, Korres Lip Butters are one of those must-try-in-your-lifetime lip balms especially for lip enthusiasts.

Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Contains five limited edition lip glosses , with shades named by their flavours.
  • Each has its own fruity flavour inspired by the tropics, which is a nice Summery change from other typical gloss flavours.
  • Non-sticky light formula that has a sheer hint colour but loads of flavour.
  • Contains 2 milky shades which seemingly might not suit medium/dark lip tones, but I have found them useful as a finishing touch to nude lips.
  • Key ingredients: Vitamins A, C, E and algae extracts
  • Allergy information: Contains mineral oil, in case you’re sensitive to it.
  • Verdict: An excellent gift idea (who doesn’t love receiving an array of yummy glosses!), value for money and great for sheer gloss lovers to instantly expand your collection.

Comes in my favourite gloss wand, similar to Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip VeilBenefit’s Ultra Shine Lipgloss.
