Calvin Klein Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow Reef (Limited Edition) - Swatch and Review

Hi everyone,

Checking in to deliver a review for you and wishing you all a happy 4th of July. Hope you have fun and stay safe.

  • Bright and cute plastic squeeze tube with a shimmery/metallic finish. 
  • .17 oz or 5 ml

  • Reef is a shimmery bright chartreuse cream color. I believe this is limited edition for summer but it doesn't specify that on Ulta's website. I think that's what it said when I was looking at the display in store. 
  • It's fairly pigmented but you can wear it sheer if  you want due to the light consistency of the formula. Believe it or not, I sported this color to work the other day and when sheered and paired with a neutral brown, it adds just a little pop of brightness without looking overwhelming. 
  • You can layer for more color intensity but the less the better. If you use too much, it will look flaky as it dries. 
  • I like to apply with my fingers better. It's much easier to handle and give you enough time to blend before it sets. It does set within a few seconds though. 
  • I'm pretty happy with the wear. It did not crease or fade on me for up to 8 hours without a primer. 

Final Thought

This is a bright and fun color that I find perfect for summer. I like that you can wear it sheer or layer it for more intensity and really appreciate that it didn't crease without a primer and wears pretty much for the whole day.

  1. Happy 4th of July! This is pretty...not for me, but still pretty nonetheless. I'm convinced you can pretty much pull off any color.

    1. I think anyone can. All you need is the confidence to wear it and coordinating it with complementary shades.

  2. Wow that is a fun color! But at $18.00 I'd have to find a color I'd wear a lot!

    1. I know what you mean. They did have another color that looks more natural.

  3. This is such a unique & fun colour! It sounds really good, would make a perfect base for other colours! x
