Remember I told you about my love for Calvin Klein’s Maven Lip Gloss?  I wasn’t joking!  I picked up three more of these glosses at Sephora–and of course, I didn’t even use my $15 off coupon.  I was too impatient to go home and get it!  The colors I bought were Taffy, Knockout, and Radar.  I just love the way these glosses feel alone (and I rarely wear glosses alone), so I wanted some great everyday shades.  Taffy is a nice, soft pink with gold shimmer in it.  Knockout is a cooler, pastel purple-pink that’s less traditionally everyday–it reminded me of Negligee lipglass by MAC.  Radar is ridiculously pretty, being almost like a nude lipgloss but with plenty of pink and peach undertones.

Calvin Klein Delicious Light Glistening Lip Gloss in Maven ($16.00) is a great night-on-the-town kind of color. It’s a very pigmented gloss in a deep shade of burgundy-wine, so it gives lips a dramatic look without being too high maintenance. The gloss formula itself is non-sticky as far as I could tell, but still thick enough that it’s not a balm or a sheer gloss.

When applied, the color goes on smoothly and looks almost like shimmering water (if water was burgundy and that was acceptable!). The shimmer is just right; it’s obvious and noticeable, but it isn’t chunky or gritty. I found the gloss lasted for several hours before fading, and I didn’t get the dreaded lipgloss ring at the end of the day. I rarely like a gloss enough to wear it alone, but I find this one to be exceptional for that purpose.

This gloss is perfect for nights out, but you can definitely rock it during the day time. Right now, I keep it in my purse, because its an easy grab-and-go color I can wear if I need to amp up my look while out and about.

Swatch + lip swatch… Continue reading →
