Lipstick with lipgloss over the top
Just the lipgloss
Excuse all the lip pics! I thought I'd review the Michael Kors lipstick and lipgloss together, as when layered up they're pretty spectacular!
The lipstick, by itself is surprisingly hydrating and buttery, as well as really well pigmented. The buttery texture and hydration is thanks to the shea butter and vitamin E, that's what makes it feel so luxurious. I have the shade 'Bombshell', an intense deep pink.
When you layer the lip gloss over the top, in shade Siren, it really comes to life and gives more depth as the gloss has very small shimmery particles in it - think of the glaze on a krispy kreme donut (the one with the pink glaze) :) The lip gloss is pretty sticky, not to the extent of the MAC dazzle glass (the stickiest lip gloss I've ever seen) and it's easy to remove.
The lip gloss by itself has a lovely finish and pigmentation, it's not overly intense making it very wearable.
You can expect to get a good few hours of wear out of these before needing to reapply. Both of these I applied directly from the applicator/bullet - I think I would have got better results with the lipstick if I'd applied with a lip brush, but that's just my personal preference.
Both are lovely products and feel very luxurious, and then there's the gorgeous packaging, how luxe are they!?
