Got sample of this from Sephora in shades 4 and 5. I was impressed! Applied over skin care and primer this was sheer easily building to medium. The finish is so pretty, lightly glowing which is enough to show through setting powder. Lasted thru my day, 12 hours, with one blot and powder around the 8 hour mark. I have 58 year old normal skin and although I thought it did settle into mouth lines a little, from a conversational distance I thought it looked smooth, a little glowy and pretty. I would repurchase. I am a devoted Armani user, but this pretty glow is something I don't get ftom them.

This is an amazing concealer which can also be used as a foundation but due to price I wouldn't purchase again I just think £38 is a lot for a concealer. Although the small pot has a lot of product in it and you only need a little as it really is thick. Product itself - full coverage concealer you only need the tiniest of amount and really need to blend it well. Very good coverage and creamy consistency. Covers blemishes even pores so well and I have pitted acne scars - even diminishes those!

There have been few times where I've opened up a product and thought "is that it" but that was exactly my thought with this one. In my opinion, for what you get with this product it is way over-priced. There are three very small pans full of the glittery-sparkly highlighting powder. For me, it is way too glittery to use as a highlighter, so I've been using this as an eyeshadow topper. When I tried to use it as a lipstick topper it looked too sparkly and ended up looking patchy. I'm not sure what the best use for this is and at this price I wouldn't buy it again. My review with swatches can be seen here:

It stung a bit when I handed over $78 CAD for this book but now that I've gotten a chance to explore the products inside, I can safely say I don't regret it. For your reference, my skin tone is around the NC20 range, and all the products suit me well, even when I use them on just moisturized skin with no complexion products.The Medium Sculpting Powder can look quite natural since it is a powder that needs building up. The Candlelight Celestial Powder is a gorgeous beigey-golden highlighter that gives a very natural sheen to the cheeks with no glitter particles. Both powders are soft, creamy, barely powdery, blend wonderfully and they have good lasting power on my combo skin (7+ hours). The Medium Sculpting Cream is a bit warmer and slightly darker than the Medium Sculpting Powder, while the Candlelight Celestial Cream looks similar to the powder highlight when applied on the face. Both of the creams have a thin, creamy consistency that takes practically no effort to blend and they also have good lasting power on my skin (7+ hours). I do find that The Candlelight cream takes a little bit more time to set compared to the Medium cream, but both do set fast and once they set they are locked in place. Both versions of the Candlelight highlight (powder and cream) are not sparkly at all in comparison to Benefit's Watt's Up, any Becca highlighter (cream, powder or liquid), Laura Mercier's Matte Baked Radiance Highlighter, or Marc Jacob's Glow Stick, etc. since they only give a natural, soft glowy sheen with no metallic or sparkly/glittery finish. Candlelight is definitely the most natural looking highlighter I've come across so far, hands down.The eyeshadows included in this palette are very nice, especially the two mattes (Cool Tan and Ruddy Earth). They have good pigmentation and they blend easily. Brighten looks like a shimmery white in the pan, but the white base doesn't show up very strongly so it is mostly just shimmer. Starlight is one of my favourites to use when I want my eyelids to have the wet sheen look without having to use an eye gloss. The pinkish base of it is a bit stronger than Brighten's base, but both base colours are only noticeable from afar if I build up the shadows. Both shimmer shadows are easy to blend, and surprisingly I don't notice fallout when I use them. The only con of this product is the packaging. I wish that they didn't attach the instructional pamphlet to the palette itself because it cheapens the overall look. It's also really annoying to have the cream products right next to the powders without anything shielding them. For the price, they should have included a sturdy plastic lid with hinges that will cover the cream products, like in the Natasha Denona Diamond & Blush Palette. I had to DIY a pretty functional cover out of the flimsy plastic insert that came with this palette by cutting the insert in half, folding across the top and then taping it down. It isn't the prettiest looking DIY, but it does the job fairly well. Overall, for the price this is palette is such a steal and it is totally worth it since all of the products included are so wonderful (they also cost a lot more if you buy them separately). I can see myself reaching for this palette a lot, and I will definitely bring it with me on all of my travels. If they improve the packaging a bit, then this would be a stellar 5/5 product. I am pretty sure that I will repurchase this, but I really hope that the next face palette Kevyn Aucoin releases will have better packaging that includes a lid for the cream products.

Goodbye Shu Uemura, Hello Kevyn Aucoin! I used Shu Uemura for years, but decided to give the Kevyn Aucoin product a try. The first thing I noticed about this eyelash curler is how snug you can get it to the entire lashline. My lashes from end to end fit beautifully in this curler. The length and curvature of this curler closely parallels the human eye. Most other eyelash curlers are a little shorter and have a more severe curve, so you curl the middle lashes fine, but end up pinching both ends of your eyelids. Not so with this one! The Kevyn Aucoin curler has a smooth gliding motion, and the pad itself is excellent! The pad in the Kevyn Aucoin curler also doesn't collapse like a foam rubber pillow when used, which leaves your lashes stuck in it, so when the curler is removed, lashes come out with it. It curls your lashes with very little pressure, so you look fresh, bright-eyed, and ready for the day! I couldn't be happier, and I hope this product is never discontinued!!
