As a makeup artist, I have admired the late Kevyn Aucoin’s work for years. He was the makeup genius of the 80s and one of my most prized possessions is my autographed copy of his first book, The Art of Makeup. Of late, however, I’m totally enthralled work Kevyn Aucoin Beauty. I was given a few products to try and I have to tell you that everything I have heard about The Sensual Skin Enhancer from my professional makeup artist friends and colleagues is true. This foundation is a miracle worker.
What it does:
Cover all your bases with The Sensual Skin Enhancer. This all-in-one, waterproof formula delivers complete coverage when used as a concealer, highlighter, an allover foundation, or to contour your features. Infused with jojoba and honey, it works to hydrate the skin, and it is formulated with minerals that support the skin and is sweat proof and transfer resistant for full coverage and long-lasting wear.
What else you need to know:
While on a trip to Japan, Kevyn Aucoin was taken with the radiant, flawless skin of the geisha. His unending curiosity of what makes these women beautiful led him on a quest to find the products they used to achieve their youthfully dewy complexion. Working closely with Japanese chemists, Kevyn Aucoin developed what is perhaps the most versatile skin-perfecting product you will ever use for radiant looking skin.
When I first saw the little pot that Kevyn Aucoin Beauty The Sensual Skin Enhancer comes in, I thought I had a sample size. That is until I touched it and spread it on my hand. That little dot covered the entire back of my hand. I tell you that to say that this foundation is full of pigment and such a small amount goes a very long way.
I like to apply this foundation with my fingers or a sponge, as I find that the warmth of my fingers tends to make it blend into my skin better, as does a makeup blender. The pigment and coverage is so phenomenal, that I don’t even need concealer, and that’s major (I have bad dark circles.) Not only is the coverage amazing, but the color is spot on for darker toned skin.
The coverage is totally adjustable and buildable. I have sheered it out for just a light coverage, and built it up when I want a more complete coverage. The best part is that it lasts all day without fading, getting dry or oily. As a matter of fact, on e of the claims for The Sensual Skin Enhancer is that it hydrates the skin, and it truly does. My skin feels moist at the end of the day when I’m ready to remove my makeup.
Pro: Super pigmented, a dot goes a long way, fabulous coverage, long wearing, great color selection, easy to apply, perfect size for your makeup bag
