Michael Kors Bets on Beauty


Michael Kors is no stranger to the beauty world, and his successful lineup of fragrances has paved the way for an edited range of cosmetics over the years. Seasoned beauty vets will recall the limited-edition pink-tinged Very Hollywood makeup palettes Kors designed to complement his best-selling perfume of the same name threeyears ago, and the same subset of style junkie is likely still stocking his Leg Shine [], a revolutionary roll-on shimmering skin tint that makes for insta-sexy gams. For his next trick, Kors is going big with an extensive cosmetics range that has been created in collaboration with Estée Lauder. Divided into three distinct collections—Sporty, Sexy, and Glam—each emotion has a fragrance, along with key color products, including two Lip Lacquer shades, two Lip Luster glosses, and two nail polishes, in a shade selectionthat ranges from nude-taupes and blue-reds to more edgy plums. Three BronzePowders will also be on offer, as well as sun and body products, like the Liquid Shimmer Dry Oil, the Shimmer Bath Beads, the After Sun Gelee, and the After Sun Lip Balm, which is modeled after eighties-era zinc-oxide products. “It’s wardrobing in the beauty world, the way I do in clothing and accessories,” Kors says of the new venture due out in August.
