Kevyn Aucoin - Sculpting Powder

Ohhhh, now this is a good-un :D 
Anyone a all who has tried there hand at contouring will have at least once faced 'The Problem'.
You end up with two big orange patches on your face because the powder/cream you used you to warm toned. Its not pretty and we dont speak of it again. 
Kevyn Aucoin brings a solution to this.
I first heard about this in October when Anna from Vivianna Does Make up did this post on it and i thought it looked good because although i have pretty naturally defines cheekbones i like to make them look a little more chiseled and to narrow down my nose a little. I checked it out in Spack NK and as soon as i swatched it once, i HAD to have it.



The packaging is lovely and sleek although the red/black ombre is not really my cup or tea but all is forgiven and made up by whats inside.


I am very sorry about the quality of this photo but its the best i could do with the camera i have :( Heres hoping it'll be better in september when i get a better one for my birthday :)  This photo makes it actually look quite a warm almost tan coloured powder but its the oposite. Its a lovely smokey ash brown and its simply perfect. There is practically no fall out from this powder and its very easily to apply light and build up so you dont end up with two lines on your face, it blends superbly.


This is it swatched quite heavily and then blended out a bit next to it. This is shade medium and quite honestly i dont know if they do any other because this was the only one in the shop and the only one i have ever seen, it would suit very pale to medium skin tones because of its blendibility.

The only thing about this that isnt amazing ... you guessed it, the price. It costs £34 from Space NK.
I know, i know its pretty damn expensive but you know what, and i dont say this likely, its bloody well worth it.

  2. I've just started contouring and use the Sleek kit which I think is great for my skin tone but this looks great also, more of a luxury product :D

    1. I know, its extortionate. I had to make this one of my only purchases of the month when i got it, so worth it though.
