Since it’s a rather soggy Friday, I thought I would share a slice of US glamour, in the form of Michael Kors‘ Sexy Bombshell Lip Lacquer.
Like all of Kors’ new range, this is one pretty package. The rectangular tube is shiny gold with the designer’s name etched into it. It kind of reminds me of the YSL beauty packaging, and my only issue is it can get kind of fingerprint-y but it’s not too bad.
Inside is where it gets really good – a beautiful strawberry pink with micro glitter. It’s photographing more red, but in real life there is definitely pink in there. Again, the lipstick is imprinted with Kors’ name, and it’s such a pretty shade.
The formula of the lipstick is great! It goes on easily, and quite thinly. This means at first swipe, it’s a gorgeous sheer and you can build it up to the intensity you need. The formula feels more like a light balm when applied due to the Shea Butter and Vitamin E and it leaves lips looking glossy.
When using this my lips stay glossy for around 2 hours, and even when it feels like it’s worn off, my lips are still slightly stained pink. This is a great option for people like me who don’t feel 100% confident wearing strong colors, and it’s perfect for the upcoming party season!
The lipstick is priced at £ 23 and is available from House of Fraser.
