REVIEW: KEVYN AUCOIN SENSUAL SKIN ENHANCER

2:39 pm



Hi guys!
Another review here


The Kevyn Aucoin Sensual skin enhancer has been on my wishlist for a while now. I finally succumbed and it felt so good I went ahead and bought another shade for highlighting ( for someone who doesn't buy/do the highlighting craze thing, its quite crazy!)

For those that might not know, Kevyn Aucoin is a seasoned makeup artist and is widely known for his bestseller books: making faces. Then when I was in makeup school, you had to have Making Faces!

So i wasn't surprised about how awesome these babies are. A pro's point of view, will be definitely different. Take for example LORAC! *swoons*


Kevyn Aucoin says:

The Sensual Skin Enhancer,
Provides maximum coverage to hide imperfections, compliment skin tone, and to create a flawless canvas

WHAT IT IS
• A versatile skin-perfecting enhancer used to achieve a youthful, dewy complexion
• Use as a concealer, highlighter or all-over foundation
• Apply with the fingers, or our concealer brush for any desired finish
• Great for all skin types

WHY WE LOVE IT
• Honey and jojoba oil create a soft, dewy finish
• Offers sheer to complete coverage
• Can be mixed with moisturizer for tinted moisturizer look


Do I agree?
Oh yes! Maybe not with everything....ok I agree with everything but ''offers sheer to complete coverage'  no! This offers FULL coverage to FULL coverage!! ha! If you mixed it with a thinner or a moisturizer, maybe then it would give you sheer/medium coverage.

Every other point up there is true. It can be used as a concealer, corrector, highlighter and full face foundation. Asides from it super pigmentation, the texture albeit thick, is super creamy. Quite easy to blend, and its finish is lovely! LOVELY!

Another thing that made me go crazy for these babies is its color undertone. The product comes in a wide range of undertones, so I carefully looked out for the warm, yellow and reddish undertones. I bought these off the internet with no prior testing, and the color match is amazing.

For 48$ per piece, this is a bargain! You get a whopping 18g of product. Due to its super pigmentation i would say this thing could last you for a long time, forget how small the tub looks,

In a single Bobbi Brown creamy concealer, you get 1.4 grams for 25$, I am still in shock!



So i initially picked up the shade SX 15, as a corrector, to balance out my skin tone, but seeing how much I liked it I decided to also buy the SX 12 which is a gorgeous gorgeous yellow shade. Perfect shade for my highlight ( God forbid white based concealers for me!)

All in all, I will give this product 8/10.
I have taken 1 point away for its fragrance, I do not like it all, and also another 1, beacuse of its heavy feel when used as an all round foundation!

Every other thing is perfetto like my (imaginary) Italian friends will say
