My thoughts on the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer


 Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer - Cult Beauty

I brought this product last year back in October for my birthday. I had a night out planned as well as a few concerts to attend in November & December. So I thought it was the perfect timing to make this purchase! 


I brought mine in the shade 06, it is a few shades lighter than my skin tone as I do not use it as a foundation. I use it to highlight under my eyes. It has a strong yellow base under tone. I would of liked it to be a little less yellow however I guess it gives me that extra glow when highlighting. I mainly use this on nights out when I want a dramatic in your face Kim Kardashian highlight. It really stands out in pictures and you can defiantly tell I have gone all out with my highlighting and that's what I like for night looks!




The product formula is very thick which I am not too keen on as it can easily go cakey if you build it or layer it up too much. A little bit of product does go a long way and even though this jar is expensive it has lasted me well over half a year and I can see it lasting me for a few good years! I could never use this as a foundation because like I said I think it's too thick.



The coverage is fantastic though and even with one layer it conceals my under eyes perfectly. So that leads me to say that not only do I use it as a highlighter, I also use it as a concealer for under my eyes! It is also very long lasting and does not melt away into my skin. I can say this as I have had first hand experience wearing this and going to concerts where it has been absolutely heaving! This bad boy did not melt a single bit or move even though my foundation become oily! 

If you are looking for a good concealer or something to brighten up your under eyes I would definitely recommend this. I have used it as a foundation once but I did not like the heaviness feeling or just the fact I knew how thick this product is and covering my whole face in it just did not feel right! 

Let me know if you have used this and how do you find it!
