Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!
I’ve been watching a lot of makeup declutter videos and have been inspired to look back through my collection of products and see what I need to be using to get the most out of what I’ve spent money on before it expires! Lipstick is one of those products that I am very tempted by but when I think of how many lipsticks I use regularly out of the ones that I own, I start to regret purchasing so many. While watching decluttering videos, I started seeing products I wanted to try and I just can’t buy more without at least using some of the ones I’ve neglected and can’t part with. So I’ve decided to ‘shop my stash’ and focus on using some products that I really need to use before their expiry and I’ve decided to make a post monthly talking about how I’m going with it! The idea isn’t to use products up, necessarily, although I’d like to. The idea is just to use the products and work out whether they’re worth hanging on to. I’m hoping to reignite some passion for certain products, especially now that my preference seems to be changing, yet again! I hope that you enjoy reading these posts!
Today I wanted to share a fun little post because I really love palettes and I really love tags haha. This has been a really popular tag for years and today I wanted to share my answers! I hope that you enjoy!
I just got one of my packages from OZSale and in the package was two of the Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Creme Lipsticks!
I’ve never tried any Calvin Klein makeup and when I saw these on OZSale I thought they were pretty so I gave them a go and so far I haven’t been disappointed!
The two colours that I bought were Ethereal (coral nude) and Fusion (plummy fuchsia).
Both lipsticks glide on easily and they are extremely creamy. I’m not sure about their wear time but I would assume they’d stay on pretty well until you ate or drank. They do transfer but that is expected with this finish.
The smell isn’t offensive. They smell kind of like florally powder? I am terrible at describing smell. I don’t really have a problem with lipstick scents unless they smell like a toilet air freshener like some cheap lipsticks I own.
Here are the lip swatches:
I prefer Fusion but that’s mainly because I am drawn to that kind of colour. I do really like Ethereal though. I’m warming up to those kind of colours. I’ve just had a lot of trouble trying to find which sort of nude suits my very pale skin without making me look like a zombie hahaha.
I have seen these retail for $20 but I’m not sure where they are that price. They don’t sell this line at Myer as far as I’m aware, they do sell Calvin Klein though. I got mine for $3. I think people have said they’ve gotten them from eBay for a similar price, too.
