CK lipstick from Fragrance Direct



Fragrance Direct is a fantastic place to pick up some really good bargains. Often you can pick up things that have been discontinued so it's a brilliant place to go when your favourite perfumes and cosmetics have been axed.


I have a feeling that this lipstick might have been discontinued by Calvin Klein but it can be found in a range of shades here. The lovely Satu has written a post about a few other shades with swatches here that you might want to read if you're considering buying one of these lipsticks.

I bought this lipstick a while back in the shade Henna. This is a brilliant pink nude shade that will match any skin tone - it even looks good on people as ghostly as me! It isn't very pigmented but it's a nude shade so I wouldn't expect it to be.

I have never found a lipstick that has given my lips so much moisture. Applying this creme lipstick just feels like putting on a lip balm. I've never been so impressed with a lipstick and I've found myself wearing it more and more in these colder months when my lips have been feeling a little dry and in need of some TLC.

Thanks for reading, Alex x

  4. Nice review! :) My thoughts exactly. The shades I have are a bit darker, except the Delightful, so they smudge a little ... like any other creamier lipstick might - so I have this Lipcote -product which is like lacquer on top of lipstick, it is a lifesaver. Or facesaver :D Also from Fragrance Direct. Anyway, thanks for the comment on my photo so I could find you and your pretty blog x Following! ^^

  6. Yayy, thanks for linking me ;) I hope our posts help someone buying these, since there isn't any good photos or swatches on Fragrance Direct. Google has helped me a lot when buying their eye shadows, lipcolours and such. Aaand woops; I made new order the other day including ridiculous amount of beauty products, edt for me and boyfriend, and all cost only 70 euros with postage! :D I'm overjoyed and can't wait to get my hands on the package already. ^^

    Thanks for following xx
