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.
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.
