Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Crème Lipstick - Review




Hey guys,

I thought I’d do a post about a couple of outright bargains I've picked up recently. Lately I've been trying to wear more lipstick; however, I’m not very confident about what suits me. Because of this I've been trying to buy some cheap ones first to get an idea of the colours I like. Here are two lipsticks that I love and I found at an amazing price. 

They are part of the Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Crème Lipstick range (wow that’s a long name), and I bought Rose Rush and Henna. These lipsticks both cost £1.99 from fragrance direct which I think is an incredible site and is the secret behind my Essie collection, (post coming soon). I read somewhere that when these came out they were close to £12 but then got reduced for some reason, I’m not sure where I read that though.

Both these lipsticks have a lovely creamy texture and are quite thick and pigmented. I like to wear Rose Rush on nights out, it’s a dark pink and I love it as it’s a bit of a stepping stone towards a true red lipstick. I wore it when I went out on Monday and its staying power was astounding. It lasted through a lot of pre – drinks and the whole night without a reapplication which to me is unbelievable.

Henna’s great for in the day it’s a pale pink and is actually pretty similar to MAC Angel, there are a few subtle differences but it makes it a great cheaper alternative for day to day wear so don’t use my MAC lipstick up too fast.

For £1.99 each these are such great lipsticks, they come in sleek packaging and you get 3.5g of product. They stock a lot of colours here so I think I’m going to buy a few more soon and see if I can get a bit more adventurous with the colours I wear.

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Does anyone know why they’re so cheap?

Lots of Love

  1. I ordered a few of these last time I was on fragrance direct, I think they're amazing. You should check out 'Orange Too' if you get a chance.
    Love the look of 'Rose Rush', might have to make a cheeky purchase.

  5. I have some of these lipsticks in different colours and I love them! I have got them cheap too from shops like Boyes and The Factory Shop, maybe Calvin Klein stopped making them so they are selling them cheap? Haha I don't really know! These colours really suit you :-)

  7. They both look lovely on you! I've never tried Ck cosmetics but did notice they disappeared quite quickly after their launch, personally I didn't like the packaging of their products it looked quite cheap. Those shades are really pretty though xx
