Michael Kors to Launch Beauty and Fragrance Lines
Sporty, sexy, glam! It’s always pleasant to see brands expanding and developing, especially if they are our favorites. Michael Kors can join the long list of famous designer brands that have launched a beauty line, as the famous designer has decided it’s high time to launch color cosmetics and fragrance lines for women, who love the luxurious Michael Kors style and who need new beauty pampering products! As the promo photo of the Michael Kors beauty line reveals, the Michael Kors woman is sporty, she’s sexy and glam!
According to Vogue, Michael Kors’ new venture is inspired by the designer’s own family, his grandmother, trying to imitate the glamorous Sophie Loren, and his mother – more natural, relaxed and very athletic. As for the sexuality, they both had it together with self-confidence and femininity. Hence, the new Michael Kors color cosmetics and fragrance collection brings three sentiments – Sporty, Sexy, Glam, which are reflected in the color palette of the makeup products and the flavor of the perfumes.
The designer tried to explain more about his beauty line to WWD, saying: “What defines what sexy is?’ I thought about someone that was really full of confidence — if her skirt unwrapped when she sat? Not a problem. So, I think those three things — sexy, sporty and glam — have always been the DNA of Michael Kors, and in a strange way, the Michael Kors woman really is all three of those things — it’s just that she feels more strongly about one of them at certain given times. So I asked myself, how can we express that both with color and with fragrance?”
The Sexy line of the Michael Kors 2013 makeup collection brings pink and red tones, the Sporty line features natural beige, while plum and dark violet are the characteristic hues of the Glam line. The collection will also bring three different bronzers ($50) – Glow, Flush and Beam, body products (Liquid Self Tanner ($32), After Sun Gelee ($32), After Sun Lip Balm ($28), Indulgent Crème ($60), Liquid Shimmer Dry Oil ($60) and Shimmer Bath Beads ($45)), Lip Lacquers and Lip Luster tones that will retail for $24. For easier makeup application, the collection will also include a Bronze Powder Brush ($45).
When it comes to the Michael Kors fragrances, prepare to be overwhelmed by three fresh and sexy scents. The Michael Kors Sporty Citrus fragrance opens with orange and tangerine notes, complemented with orange flower and moss.
As the name hints, the Michael Kors Sexy Amber fragrance is a floral scent, using notes of amber and sandalwood.
Last but not least, the Michael Kors Glam Jasmine fragrance comes to be a mixsture of jasmine, sandalwood and cassius. The three Michael Kors perfumes will be available as 1.7 oz. ($75) and 3.4 oz. ($95).
The new Michael Kors Color Cosmetics and Fragrances will be available for purchase exclusively at Macy’s starting with August, 2013. Stunning model Karmen Pedaru will be the face of the beauty campaign, which will be released in September.
