The recently launched CK One Makeup Collection is proving disappointing for me thus far. How are you feeling about it? I was curious about their Water Fresh Face Makeup. As a dry skin type putting water and fresh in the name of a product instantly gets me excites me.
CK One’s CK One Water Fresh Face Makeup is a creamy foundation product that quite reminds me of Urban Decay’s Surreal Skin Cream to Powder in not only formula but packaging as well.
Let’s take a look!
I’m still on the verge of having a love/hate relationship with CK One’s packaging. It’s rather modern chic but I’m such a h0r for pretty makeup packaging that it proves a little too plain and ordinary for me. The contrasting white and black compact is a chunky affair that contains a mirror and a flip top enclosure for the cream makeup so it’ll remain fresh. A sponge applicator which sits on the flip top allows for easy application on the go.
I honestly can’t find fault with the formula at first swatch. It’s creamy, very hydrating, and has a cool, refreshing feel to the touch. I just don’t like the way it sits on my skin though sadly. This offers medium to full coverage however I feel like its too heavy for my face and notice it sits unnaturally resulting in a “I have lots of makeup on” look. The smooth, creamy feel upon first swatch has an odd greasy, oily feel on skin. For some reason, the product doesn’t covert well onto my skin and ends up feeling unusually greasy.
It does offer excellent coverage so if you’re already used to using a creamy formula compact like this you might like it. I’m not a particularly a fan of foundations like this as they don’t completely dry down (this doesn’t have a cream to powder finish) and I feel like I have way too much product on.
Swatched: 300 Sand (This was sadly too dark for my skin tone)
Overall, CK One Water Fresh Face Makeup feels like a great product but don’t let that first swatch fool you in store because after application the product gets heavier, oilier, and just ends up feeling wrong. I didn’t like this one sadly!
P.S. It fades super fast and ended up all over the collar of my shirt.
Anyone try it?
