CK One Summer 2013- The Makeup & The Fragrance
CK One not only has the annual version of CK One Summer out but also a coordinating makeup collection.
The bottle color this year is a bright azure that just says Ocean and Summer. That shade along with lime make up the color scheme here. I have to say the packaging color is serious pretty. The fragrance bottle, whether you like the scent or not, would just look good sitting on a vanity. I am not sure that's something I've ever said about CK One.
There are 3 long wear cream eyeshadows , which I am happy to report really are long wearing.With my oft documented makeup melt, there's no guarantee but these lasted over half a day. For me this is great. You most likely will fare far better.
I love both shades reef and dune as I am a fan of any lime and brown shades in general. The third shade is a turquoise , surge. They have shimmer and will light up eyes when used with bronzer or on tan skin. The lime packs a punch but is not really neon and the brown has a light bronze look on, a little less deep than the in the tube shade.
A unique nail polish joins them , unique in that it is supposed to smell like CK One Summer after it dries. I hadn't any experience with scented nails although Revlon did so some last year I believe. It's an odd concept but what the heck. After fully drying, it does have a whiff of the fragrance. Light but there. Current, the lime shade , goes on in one coat and is summer ready. There is also a turquoise shade- riptide.
All in all it's a pretty little collection including a bronzer not shown.
The new CK One Summer fragrance is as usual unisex but it's not overly masculine . It smells of warm body musk, and aquatic, with the dewy waterlily and cucumber notes prominent and hints of the watermelon.

Top: waterfall effect, watermelon, crushed leaves, zesty citrus
