Im so sorry I havent really been around, Ive been super busy preparing for my masters thesis and my up and coming fieldwork trip (which I’m leaving for in less then a week eeekkkk!!!!!). Apart from that I also had the amazing opportunity to work at the Michael Kors Beauty launch in Magasin Du Nord located in Copenhagen last weekend. The hours were long but boy oh boy did I have a fab time 😀
It was absolutely amazing. Not only did I pick up a few products for myself I got to apply all the gorgeous bronzers, polishes, and lip products to some lovely ladies. Plus I worked with some fantastic girlies that made the experience that much better.
The beauty line is split up into three themes that each have corresponding makeup and fragrance: Sporty, Sexy, Glam. The concept behind the themes is really cool. Its meant to symbolize the diverse sides of being a woman and how we don’t just encapsulate one side but all interchangeably.
The Sexy products are full of vibrant reds and pinks with a a shimmery golden bronzer. The fragrance is warm and rich with notes of amber. This is my favorite fragrance out of the three. Its meant to emulate the feeling of wearing cashmere on a cold autumn day…and wow does it sure feel like it 😀
The Glam products are just as beautiful at the others. This theme is more vampy and risque boasting gorgeous plums and burgundys. The bronzer is also packed with golden shimmer perfect for a bronzed goddess look. The perfume in this range is rather floral with strong notes of jasmine.
As you can see the display and stands are spot on, super classy and very stylish. I’m loving the metallic gold detailing. Oh and we cant forget how pretty the packaging is. Its so sleek and looks/feels super expensive!! Now you might be wondering how do these products actually preform? Well keep reading and you’ll find out 😀
I picked up the Sporty Bronzed Powder in Glow ($50). This was the least shimmery of the three. It has a hint of fine shimmer in it but doesn’t translate on the skin as such. It gives a nice satin/demi-matte finish. The texture is really soft and smooth and its super easy to blend. The pigmentation isn’t insane but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes its good to have less pigmented cheek products as its easier to build then it is to erase!! I’m really loving this guy, its not orange or muddy on the skin and it just gives a natural glow. The packaging is a bit big and bulky but its so beautiful that I don’t really care!!!
I knew I wanted a nail polish so I went with this super rich and dark chocolate brown. Its the Glam Nail Lacquer in Desire ($18). This is such a unique shade, its almost black but not as harsh. It applies beautifully and opaquely in 2 coats. It also has really good longevity lasting about 4 days before chipping (which is pretty long for me!!). The brush is a tad on the thin side but I made it work by loading on the product to the brush.
Of course I picked up some lip products. I went for the Sporty Lip Luster in Muse ($24). Its a really light peach with gold shimmer and glitter. Its more on the sheer side and isn’t super pigmented but that just makes it an easy to use every day shade. The texture isn’t sticky but you can slightly feel the glitter but it isn’t uncomfortable. Unfortunately the picture doesn’t pick up on the amazing way it reflects light.
And it would have been straight blasphemy had I not picked up this powerful pink. Its the Sexy Lip Luster in Siren ($24). Its a pinky red packed with red and gold glitters. I wish you could see all its amaizngness, the glitter is wow in your face sparkly. The texture is sticky free and again there is a very slight grit due to the glitter but nothing horrible at all. The pigmentation is pretty insane on this one, opaque in one stroke. When you use the corresponding lipstick you really get a pow in the face statement lip.
I haven’t purchased a perfume in a while so I thought it was time to treat myself to a new fall fragrance. I went for the Sexy Amber Eau De Parfum ($50). Its a very warm and musky scent with notes of amber. I absolutely love this type of rich and heavy fragrance for fall and winter.
4/5 for this beautiful beauty line. The nail polishes are great and easy to use. The lip products are wearable yet some also pack a punch, there’s definitely something for everybody. The bronzer in Glow is perfect for contouring while the others are pretty cheek and highlight shades. I would have to say that over all I’m pretty impressed. The packaging and quality of the products are great, not surprisingly as Estee Lauder is the company behind the brand so it’s expected 😀
Have any of you tried any of the products from the Michael Kors Beauty range..what are your thoughts? Would you try them?
