Not Your Over-The-Counter Foundation
I was first introduced to these babies from YouTube guru Wayne Goss. Before becoming a makeup artist I was never familiar with the brand. The late Kevyn Aucoin was considered to be to beauty what Anna Wintour is to fashion. Enhancing the faces of people like Janet Jackson, Cindy Crawford, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cher, Julia Roberts, Tina Turner and Vanessa Williams, Kevyn is legendary. I can always appreciate when a makeup artist creates a makeup line because we have a special invested interest to create the very best...and that is what Mr. Aucoin mastered. Every product is exceptional and I have never been disappointed, but a personal favorite would have to be the Sensual Skin Enhancer!
I love that the color range caters toward all skin tones. The Kevyn Aucoin skin enhancers range from shade SX 01 being the lightest to SX 16 which is the deepest. While offering 16 colors, this foundation was created having all skin tones in mind. Many of the shades are the same hue but may have warm or cool undertones. For example, SX 11 and SX 12 are very similar in hue but SX 11 has a yellow undertone and SX 12 is a bit warm.
A notable feature of this product is that it is a concealer and foundation all in one. The texture is creamy and the coverage is phenomenal. It has the texture of butter and the finish is glowy and dewy giving the Kim K glow!
A Little Goes a Long Way
Don't let the small size fool you. Even though it comes in an untraditional size a little goes a long way. A VERY small amount can give coverage for the entire face. I use these enhancers almost everyday on clients and I'm convinced that I will never see the bottom of the jar. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a luxury foundation that will last them forever and to all makeup artist as an addition to your pro kit.
Because it's not readily available at most retailers, shopping for your shade may be a bit difficult. In MAC I am a NC42, so shade SX 11 and SX 12 complemented my tone the best. I hope this helps!
