CK One Eye Shadows- Review and Swatches

CK One Eye Shadows* (£12.00 each)

I love eye shadows and they take up about 40% of my makeup storage, so I was very excited to give the CK One beauties a go. The packaging is unique, yet very simple and the colours are absolutely gorgeous! I was kindly sent a couple of shades to try out and I am very impressed.

As you can see, to open the packaging, you have to swivel the lid to the side - a clever idea in my opinion. I also love the fact that I can see the product through the clear lid, which makes finding the right colour much easier. The pots feel very sturdy as well and don't feel like they can break easily. 

The formula of the CK One Eye Shadows is lovely, creamy and easy to apply. The fallout is minimal and they stay put all day, with or without a primer. They can be used dry or wet, depending on the effect you want to achieve. The darker colours look much more dramatic, if used wet. The shades I was kindly sent are:

100 Expose- a muted pink shade with a satin finish
720 Evolved - a muted brown/taupe colour with a satin finish
810 Fearless - a matte black/dark green with a lot of gold glitter. It is very unusual and looks amazing, used for a smokey eye or as a liner. It is the only shade with a bit of fallout, so be careful with the application.
200 Obsessed - dark purple with a satin finish
400 Ironic - electric blue with a satin finish

All the shades are super pigmented and easy to blend and I adore them. It is hard to pick a favourite, but I am obsessed with Fearless - it is so beautiful! I also like Expose and Evolved for a simple everyday look. You can see two looks I created on the photos below.

CK One Eye Shadows are available to buy from Debenhams.
