The first thing I noticed when I unpackaged these products was the packaging. Everything comes in a white and gold box which I really don’t love, it looks a little cheap from a highend brand. That said we usually just throw that away and the bottles and compacts are much more beautiful. The perfume, nail polishes and dry oil body shimmer come in a far more luxurious thick glass container whereas although I think the bronzer and lipgloss look expensive I think the materials used aren’t quite as weighty as I had hoped. I am a lover of all thinks gold so I adore the colour scheme and the bolt-like/hardwear on the packaging.
It’s part of their collection which is ‘Sometimes Sporty. Always Sexy. And never afraid to be Glam’ which sounds perfect and suppose to be used to create bronze skin, bold nails and beautiful lips.
By far the product I was the most excited about was the perfume, I believe that Michael Kors has released three and this one is Sexy Amber. It has notes of White Flowers, Amber and Sandalwood and I really like it. It’s quite a grown up, sexy, nighttime scent and although you don’t need a lot of sprays it isn’t overpowering. I’ve read a few negative reviews of this perfume but I haven’t stopped using it. I wouldn’t recommend carrying this one around in your bag though as I have already managed to scratch the lid which is very disappointing(but my own fault I guess). I can’t wait to try the other scents too, I also fell in love with Glam Jasmine in store!

On to the makeup- I found the lipgloss to be a little disappointing. The packaging doesn’t feel great and it’s drying but the colour Muse is a beautiful colour but I’d still love to try the lipsticks. The bronzer however is a great product; there are three different colours Sport Glow, Sexy Flush and Glam Beam which all come in pretty large (but plastic, boo) gold packaging. I have the colour Beam (seen on cheeks above) which is a beautiful slightly more copper shade with copper shimmer running through it. This bronzer blends beautifully but due to the pigmentation/shimmer I would recommend using a light hand and building the colour up.
I will be doing a Manicure Monday Post very soon with these three nail polishes but how pretty do they look?!
The scariest product of all had to be the Liquid Shimmer Dry Oil and although it’s a product I probably wouldn’t buy I’ve been loving it down the front of my legs as it adds a really pretty glow, it’s a great light-weight versatile oil.
Have you tried any Michael Kors products? Which product has caught your eye?
