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.

Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer ($42.00) is just as lovely and pretty as my eternal favorite Amber Diamond. Surprisingly enough, it has a good amount of pigmentation to give me not just shimmer, but a light rosy flush on my cheeks. I alternate between using the 188 or the 129 brush to apply the Skin Shimmers, depending on the intensity of what I want. I definitely see myself using this as an easy go-to blush for days when I’m pressed for time or prefer a very minimalistic look. The shimmer is subtle and sophisticated–no chunky glitter bits here.
