The New CK One Color Cosmetics Line

I love trying brand new cosmetic brands!  This Spring was the exciting launch of ck one color cosmetics, a full line-up of over 130 products that all capture the core ck one brand DNA – authentic, confident, and cool.

This line of affordable designer cosmetics continues the recent expansion of ck one into a lifestyle brand, with jeans and underwear introduced under the name in 2011.

I have got to try a few of these products and generally LOVE them.  The packaging is unique and fun and the products themselves are really cool!

Here is the description about the packaging.  I think it is interesting:

ck one color packaging design furthers the code-breaking legacy of the ck one brand with an understated pill shape that’s iconic and edgy. the modern, minimalist packaging offers simplicity in a black and white silhouette, enhanced by a playful contrast of soft touch matte and high gloss finishes for a heightened sensory experience. designed for intuitive use, product applicators feature two-sided textures and multi-functionality to encourage individual creativity.

 Some of my favorite products are:

ck one 3in1 foundation

3-IN-1 FACE MAKEUP SPF 8 ($30 USD) — this distinctive liquid synthesizes serum, primer and face makeup into one simple, lightweight formula. treated pigment technology with triple-layer amino acid that mimics skin for an effortlessly natural, radiant finish. no compromise on skin perfecting coverage. antioxidants protect skin, lasting up to 11 hours.

What I think:  A very lightweight but full-coverage makeup, which is very cool.  There are 8 shades available from very light to very dark, so something for everyone.  I wear the light which is a perfect match for my skin.  It applies very smoothly and melts into the skin.  So nice!

ck one concealer

MOUSSE CONCEALER ($20 USD) — absolute flawlessness. air-whipped concealer delivers a natural, seamless finish that fully hides blemishes and imperfections, lasting up to 9 hours.

What I think — This blends extremely well.  It only takes a few minutes to cover my under eye circles and blemishes.  To apply, I dip a concealer brush into the pot and dot on my skin, then blend.  Really great consistency, not too thick but provides full coverage.

ck one Mascara

MASCARA ($18 USD) — customize lash looks with a unique twist brush applicator. Select definition or volume with a twist of the cap in this all-in-one mascara.

What I think — Super-cool idea for mascara application.  You can twist the top of the cap to make the wand shorter or longer.  I make it short first, to thicken lashes, then I make it longer to separate and lengthen.  It only takes 2 coats on each eye to make my lashes look extremely long and thick. The only thing that I don’t love is that it flakes towards the end of the day.

ck one eye shadow quad

POWDER EYESHADOW QUAD ($28 USD) — accentuate. illuminate. define. fun and youthful hues that can easily be applied wet or dry to create looks for day or night.

What I think — This is a gorgeous eye quad.  This comes in 6 color combinations, but I have Disco, the purple palette that you see above.  It is prettier in person, though.  It has a glitter purple, a shimmer fuchsia, a matte burgundy and a pearly off-white.  You can make lovely combos with this set.
