CK One Pure Color Lipstick in Liplock

CK One Pure Color Lipstick in Liplock - £13.00*

If you read my previous post you'll know that I attend the Debenhams press evening last Wednesday and in our goody bags we got a Calvin Klein product along with other lovely things. The product I received was one of their gorgeous lipsticks that I'd already been eyeing up - Pure Color Lipstick in the shade 500 Liplock. Also if you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know I absolutely love berry coloured lipsticks so I was so excited to try this out.

First of all I absolutely love the monochrome packaging (so this season), it's a bit of a different shape from your usual lipstick but it definitely won me over (kind of reminds of me of a pill?!). I prefer simple makeup packaging like this, it just looks much more sophisticated.

I'd say that Liplock is a dark purple/red colour quite similar to MAC Rebel as I swatched them both together, however Liplock has more of reddish undertone and is slightly darker and Rebel is slightly more pink/purple (does that even make sense?) I found the formula quite moisturising, it didn't dry out my lips and the finish is glossy at the start but eventually dries to a semi-matte finish. The lipstick lasted for around 3/4 hours on my lips before I needed to touch it up which I think is reasonable for a good quality lipstick. 

Overall, I really like the CK One lipsticks (although this shade is probably not necessary in my collection) and may even purchase more shades in the future, I'd like a brighter one for Summer. Have you tried any of these lipsticks? What do you think of Liplock?
