Wearing Michael Kors Lip Lacquer in Diva ($24)

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 — Sexy, Sporty and Glam — which, um, kinda remind me Spice Girls names. I guess the ’90s really are making a comeback. πŸ™‚

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.

  • 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.

PRICE: $24
AVAILABILITY: Available now exclusively at Macy’s and online

    Oh my goodness, that pic of Tabs just is so adorable!

    The lipstick is a very pretty color, but too bad it doesn’t last longer.

      Hi Ruchita,

      He was in a lovie dovie mood this morning, so OF COURSE I had to get it on camera. πŸ™‚

      Do Nina and Mingy ever snuggle?

      • Ruchita says:

        I do have a couple of pics of them snuggling. But a lot of times they will play and wrestle. It’s funny, b/c Mingy is about 10 lbs more than Nina! He never hurts her though. He’s a gentle giant. πŸ™‚

        • Karen says:

          How sweet. I sometimes wish Tabs had a real kitty to play with. Sigh… if only he wasn’t such a diva! πŸ™‚

          It’s funny how you mention Mingy being a gentle giant. Just the other day I thought the same thing about Tabs, because whenever he hops on my lap, he does it with the lightest touch. He’s never, ever scratched or hissed at me, either. We are so lucky to have such great tabby boys!

          • Ruchita says:

            Tabs sounds like such a swetheart! I agree, we are lucky to have sweet kitties. I sometimes still marvel at how he unexpectedly showed up in my life and turned out to be such a blessing. πŸ™‚

          • Karen says:

            He likes to play up his diva angle, but really, he’s just the sweetest boy. I think we all get one very special kitty in our lifetime and he’s mine. πŸ™‚

            I have been enjoying your Instagram pics of your fur fam, by the way. I need more Mingy in my life!

          • Ruchita says:

            Thanks! Glad you like the pics! I’ve got literally hundreds of cat pictures on my phone. I enjoy seeing pics of Tabs too. He’s a handsome boy!

          • Karen says:

            Ha, me too! I don’t hesitate to whip them out to show them to strangers, either. I have also been know to “pet” people’s cats on their screen. πŸ™‚

            Hey, have you guys moved into your new place yet?

  4. Sasha says:

    Happy Friday Karen and Tabs!

    Love the eye makeup (& the kitty teddy!) πŸ˜€

    • Karen says:

      Happy Friday, Sasha! πŸ˜€

      You want to know something funny? Tabs is usually wildly jealous of that stuffed kitty. I guess he was needing some lovin’ this morning.

      Have a great weekend. What are your plans?

      • Sasha says:

        Aww, perhaps he just doesn’t like to share his fabulous assistant! πŸ˜€

        I’m on pet assisting duties myself this weekend! I have a very demanding boss, but she does pay me in Chanel polishes so I can’t complain πŸ˜‰

  5. gio says:

    That’s a very pretty lipstick, but I wish it lasted longer.

    Tabs looks so cute, as always.

    I love the packaging…. Very Michael… It kinda reminds me of thr Dolce and Gabbana lipstick cases but shaped more like YSL Rouge Pur Couturs… This color looks gorgeous but isn’t opaque enough to make my heart skip a beat… You look super hot though!!! As usual πŸ™‚ I wonder what club you and Tabs are gonna shake up tonight πŸ˜‰

    • Karen says:

      Hey love,

      HA! We plan to shake up my living room. That’s about it. πŸ˜‰

      Hope you are having a lovely Friday so far and that the weather down there is nice. Here it’s over cast and muggy… my hair’s going nuts!

  7. Chelsea says:

    I didn’t think Tabs liked that kitty!

    Gorgeous lip color!
