Michael Kors Lipstick in 'Diva'

I hope my Michael Kors heavy posts are not annoying you? I am sure they aren't but just in case, do let me know and I'll ease a little bit on it.

Today I have a Lipstick from the fabulous designer. It's called 'Diva' and belongs to the 'Sporty' clan of the range. First look at it and I thought it would make a great nude lippie for darker skin tones...darn it, all skin tones to be honest. We all have been through the perfect nude lipstick dilemma. It's an official term now and should be in the dictionary soon.

I felt this will finally end the dilemma with its universally flattering, dusky golden pink goodness. It's definitely got a pinky beige undertone going in there and has a fair bit of shimmer shot through it. Fortunately none whatsoever that would make the effect dated or frosty. It's a lovely glossy sheen that fakes moisturised lips instead.

I can imagine it looking great paired with a full on, smoked out, arabic inspired eye. For an au natural look, it would very much prevent you from looking like a corpse. The muted pink hint and the whisper of shimmer helps make it look just perfect to lift up a matte or neutral look.

If you're like me and cannot stand the feeling of heavy, drying lipsticks then this beaut is a keeper for sensitive, delicate lips. It's moderately hydrating properties and weightless texture makes it feel quite similar to the feeling of wearing a lip balm or lip butter.

It's one of those beauty luxuries that can quickly become a handbag staple and lets not ignore the fact that you'll love pulling out the lush golden case for application amidst friends. For £23, some might not find it justifiable but for fussy ladies who just cannot agree with lip products, you might want to give this particular shade a try.

For the daring amongst you who'd still want a weightless lippie, check out the other two shades they have and I promise you'll dream about it all night. I have and still do. Must. Buy. Soon.
