About a month ago I entered to win a competition from Cohorted, a Michael Kors lip lacquer so I was over the moon when it was announced that I had won. If you have never heard of Cohorted before then you MUST browse their store/website, any beauty addict would be in heaven. In this Michael Kors range there are 3 different sub-collections, Spot, Sexy and Glam, with Dame falling under Glam.
Lets start with the packaging, it is just amazing! the gorgeous shiny gold with ‘Michael Kors’ embossed in white is a lovely touch. The only niggle is that the tubing is finger print prone, a huge pain in the arse for taking photos.
Upon first looks Dame is shimmery and deep red and plum tones which is exactly what I have wanted for quite a long time. Once I swatched Dame it wasn’t as dark as I thought it would be and quite uneven in my opinion, but once built up into a few layers the tone was darker and more coverage added. I am usually a little weary of new lipsticks as some pick out the dry patches on my lips but this does the opposite, it is incredibly moisturising thanks to the base of nourishing shea butter and vitamin E.
In terms of lasting power it doesn’t really last too long in my opinion and tends to come off quite easily during eating and drinking, that said it probably lasts a hour or two.
Overall, I am totally in love with this shade it really compliments my pale skin without being too in your face, I believe that this would look perfect in autumn months and simple winged eyeliner.
