In the time it takes to grill a cheese sandwich and watch the new episode of Project Runway, a layer of lovely Lip Lacquer in Diva by Michael Kors comes and goes…
That’s about 90 minutes, give or take.
Diva — a sheer, golden rosy pink with a slick, glossy texture — is part of the new Michael Kors Beauty line available now exclusively at Macy’s.
The line is comprised of three sub collections — , and — which, um, kinda remind me Spice Girls names. I guess the ’90s really are making a comeback. 🙂
In each, you’ll find lipsticks, glosses, fragrances, nail polishes and bronzing powders in shades based on the mood of the sub collection. Prices are around the Chanel/Dior range, with $18 for a bottle of nail polish, $24 for a lipstick/gloss and $50 for a bronzing powder. Fragrances are between $50-$95.
But back to Diva…
If you like your lippies feather-light, Diva might be for you. It’s like a barely-there whisper on my lips (shh!). I’d say the closest things to it are Chanel’s Aqualumieres.
Michael Kors Lip Lacquer in Diva
- My basset hound nose (LOL!) doesn’t really pick up a scent, although I can taste a faint, yummy lemony vanilla flavor.
- Not the most hydrating lipstick on the block, but still pretty moisturizing
- Totally digging how MK toned down the shimmer. It’s very forgiving and should work on gals/guys of all ages
- I bet it would balance out dramatic smokey eyes really well.
Diva’s an easy-to-wear, lightweight nude lipstick with sheer color and soft shimmer. I do wish she’d stick around longer than 90 minutes, and I’d also like a little more pigment, especially for the $24 price tag. If you’re a Michael Kors superfan, it still might be worth the trip to Macy’s to see what it’s all about.
