IMG_5315

 

Hello!

Today I am featuring a product from Kevyn Aucoin. This is my very first product from the brand. I have heard that Kevyn Aucoin make up lines are really worth trying. I am so lucky that I have a friend who lives in UK help me to buy this product. To @happyananthi on instagram, thank you for helping me to get this product.

Packaging:

Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Bronzing Powder is packaged in a simple design. It’s packaged in a red acrylic casing with “Kevyn Aucoin” printed on it. No brush or pouch were given.

Texture & Shades:

This bronzer has a unique texture. This is definitely not creamy but it’s not the powdery type too. I must say that this celestial bronzing veil has quite a dry texture but it’s still nice and soft. On the pan, it looks like this bronzing veil is packed with loads of shimmer. But you need to swatch it to judge the shade. I personally dislike bronzer with shimmers too but Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Bronzing Powder has a very refined shimmer that does not look obvious when applied. As you can see in the pan, The shade in Tropical Days  is not too dark. The shade on the top of the pan is lighter and gradually it becomes darker on the bottom.

Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Bronzing Powder gives a subtle glow to my skin when applied. It helps to contour my cheekbone very well. I usually use the shade below; it is simply because it has darker shade compared to the top part. The shade melts into my skin very nicely after blending. I can see a very slight shimmer on my cheek but it doesn’t look frosty. This products lasts perfectly for 4 hours on me (I am mostly staying indoors) and it starts to fade after that. The lasting power is not the best but it’s not that bad too.

In the swatches above, you can see that the lighter shade can also be used as a highlighter while the darker shade can be used as a bronzer. The lighter shade has heavier amount of highlighter compared to the darker shade. So don’t worry that your face will look shimmery when you’re applying the darker shade as your contouring powder.

 

 

Thank you for reading!

    This looks like it could work as an eyeshadow duo! I keep thinking I should try something from the brand, but I haven’t so far. Do you know Cult Beauty now stocks Kevyn Aucoin?

    Oh wow. I havnt even seen these yet. Loving the finish. I have trouble with shimmery bronzer though this looks like it just might be very flattering for all over color.
