THE ONE PALETTE FACE | FEATURING KEVYN AUCOIN THE LOOKBOOK


This Kevyn Aucoin palette has filled a gap in my life that I didn't even know was there. Containing four shadows, two lip colours and two cream blushes it's the perfect size for travelling. Before I owned this I used to lug around my Naked palette, a few different blush palettes and endless lip options. Now, this palette has me covered. The packaging is a heavyweight cardboard, with magnetic closings and a large mirror. The snakeskin effect is very chic and something I love to show off on my dressing table. It also contains two handy tutorials for a natural and dramatic look.
'Soft Clay' is a pretty pinky matte shade, which works well swept over the lid, and 'Shimmering Wheat' is a pale gold shimmer that serves as a highlight for the inner corner and under the browbone. Out of the four shadows 'Bronze' is my favourite, a beautiful brown bronze shade which can be used to create a really smoky eye. 'Coffee Bean' is the 'liner' colour, but I love it for filling in my brows. The shadows are all buttery and apply easily, with no fallout or creasing.
The two cheek colours 'Tresbelle' and 'Tansoleil' both blend easily with fingers and you only need a little bit of product for a pretty wash of colour. Both are buildable for a stronger look, and both work well as lip colours, making this palette super versatile. 'Beaugonia', the natural lip offering doesn't work for me as a lip colour, instead I prefer to use this as a highlight, for the bridge of my nose, cupids bow and under my browbone. 'Tammabelle' a rosy pink shade is much more suited to my skintone and it also works well as a cheek colour.
Having never tried any products from Kevyn Aucoin before, this palette was a great introduction to the brand. I'm definitely lusting after more of the eyeshadows now, such as this pretty palette. Have you ever tried any products from Kevyn Aucoin?
