Once I graduated from college, I really thought life would be a bit simpler. I was working full time, taking a full course load, living states away from my family and boyfriend, and trying to figure out how to be an adult all at the same time. I assumed that once school was out of the equation, I would have all this free time to pursue what I wanted, not what the registrar said I had to in order to complete my degree. Hello, reality check.
Now we’ve moved even farther away and I’m still working full time, but I don’t feel like I have any extra time. I still feel like life is as chaotic as it was during my senior year, which is really annoying. (It doesn’t help that I don’t work a typical 9 to 5.) I need to step back from my current life and see what I can simplify. Spreading out household chores throughout the week instead of all on one day? Yes. Getting rid of all the stuff that just sits around and NEVER gets used so someone else can enjoy it? Most def. Finding that one lipgloss that works with everything so I can eliminate a few extra minutes before work? Well, at least I can check that one off the list. (You were wondering how that was going to happen, yes?)
CK One Lipgloss in Tender
CK One Color recently launched at Ulta and Ulta.com exclusively, and contrary to my suspicions, it’s a really good line. Once the display was out and I gave it a look-see, I immediately honed in on this oh-so-perfect nude-pink gloss. Could it scream my name any more??
As soon as I swatched this in the store, I knew. I just knew. It was meant to be. I was blown away by how smooth and non-sticky this line is, yet the glosses are creamy and substantial. They smell like MAC lipsticks, only a bit stronger, though it does fade within a couple of minutes on the lips.
The only complaint I have is that the applicator pulls out a lot of excess product, even for someone with larger lips like myself. If the neck was a little bit smaller, I think it would wipe off just enough.
Wearing CK One Lipgloss in Tender
Like I said before, I’ve been completely impressed with this line. The prices are reasonable for a prestige line and the quality seems to be exceeding the price point. The lipgloss is priced at $15 for .23 fl oz. (a MAC LipGlass is .17 fl oz.).
Have you swatched or purchased any of these? Let me know in the comments!!
Also, if you have any tips for simplifying life a bit, please let me know that, too.
