I was so excited to get this palette, the reviews on Sephora are mostly good and the colors looked perfect for fall/winter. Nothing unicorn, rainbow or super glitzy, just nice and wearable. The packaging is nice and upon first look I thought sure this would be a winner for me. Sadly, the mattes in this palette don't blend as well as they should for the price, they ended up looking muddy and patchy despite careful blending and a very good primer. The metallic shades, which are supposed to be best applied with a finger pretty much stayed on my finger. I tried with a damp finger and a damp brush and the result was the same: undefined chunks of glitter that were impossible to move on the lid. There was much fallout that did not want to budge. The semi-shimmery shades fared the best, they went on silky, pretty much perfect. For $57 I want at least 90% of the shades in a palette to work for me. I bought this without swatching as none of the Sephora stores by me carry this line. My fault perhaps, but I expected so much more from Kevyn Aucoin I can't even add a lippie for that. I returned this and will continue to seek a neutral palette that works for me.

Great right into the lashline and curls without pinching. Great fit for my eye. Would repurchase.

This product is legendary and I had a great color match, so I splurged on it and... regretted it. I tried incredibly hard to get this enhancer to work (mixing it with all sorts of lotions and mediums, applying it with different tools, etc.) but it had two major flaws. One, regardless of what I mixed it with, it kept emphasizing peach fuzz and skin texture that I didn't know I had. Two, it broke me out. I would be very cautious about using this product if you are acne-prone like me.The pigmentation is truely awesome though, so I hope other people can get it to work.

I love this pencil! The tip is small and the pencil comes with a small spooly, both helps on the precision. So this pencil definitely lives up to its name. I also like that there are isn't a cap on both sides of the pencil, like most eyebrow pencils seem to have. Instead you just twist the top to move the pencil in and out of the casing, and you don't need to sharpen it. There is a cap on the spooly.The color Ash Blonde is perfection. Blonde eye brow pencils tend to be too warm in color for me, but this color is perfectly cool and amazing.I also love that the pencil doesn't go on too easily, which makes it's possible to have control over how much color is drawn on. I find that this lacks in a lot of the cheaper brands. NYX has a very similar eye brow pencil at a fraction of the cost, but the color that is closest to Ash Blonde called Taupe is too dark for me and the product goes on too easily, so that doesn't work for me. An alternative that is more or less the same color as Kevyn Aucoin's Ash Blonde is Loreal Brow Artist Designer in 301 Blonde, but that has a regular sized pencil and spooly, and the color goes on more easily, so there's a bit less control. But I can definitely recommend the Loreal pencil as a cheaper alternative. Trying an eye brow pencil with regular sized tip and spooly after using the one from Kevyn Aucoin does however feel incredibly clunky.Will definitely buy this pencil again!

This product will give you the most intense coverage you can possibly have. Great to use as a concealer. It feels very silicony, spreads easily and seamlessly blends into the skin. It isn't the product I personally like. I don't like high coverage and I don't enjoy silicon feel, but I totally recommend it to anyone looking for the extra flawless complexion. The jar is pricey, but it will last a really long time.
