Kevin Aucoin Swatches & Reviews

Hello Beautiful people,

           I'm so excited and even privilege to have been able to play in the art that is Kevin Aucoin's beauty line as result of the sample sale that took place this past week. There is another sale taking place on Aug 11th and 12th at 56 West 22nd street on the 2nd floor tell em Miss Merli sent you :). You will certainly not be disappointed and you will be helped by the amazing Danny and Desiree. I wanted to share swatches of the many items that I swatched at the sale. I believe the only thing I didn't was foundations, but let me tell you about it the foundation is a full coverage one which can be sheered at with their amazing primer or your daily facial moisturizer to your liking. I will review my foundation as well as my haul in a future post. Just FYI if there is a <3 next to an item that is my icon to say I love it :)

cocochini, vesuvian, bliss, hannabelle, molasses
Love these glosses not to opaque and not too sheer Just right! For long wear wear with lipstick of

The Pencil eye shadows might be the one thing I'd leave if you were on a budget. Not for beginners since you have to manipulate the colors wet.
 Pure Powder Glow pro Pans
 myracle, shadore, dolline, natura, neolita and fira
If you love blush in all colors this is for you. For my beautiful brown, dark skin sistah's I die this is for you. Great blend-ability so don't be frightened just blend blend blend if you want the color to be lighter. 

bronze, oro, blush, midnight, goddess, aubergine, chrome, tusk, copper, platinum, fawn, whisper, passion, & patina <3 all of them

Love these shadows very pigmented and the wear is long without eye primer, great for all day or all night wear

Palettes 1- 6 and the Spring Palette are very pigmented and the colors vary so you can't go wrong if you're starting your own kit. I love these shadows wet to get the most from the colors.

 I love products that pull double duty like these do and the colors are so pigmented and awesome

I love the Gossamer loose powder also a favorite of Oprah and the Sensual Skin Enhancer a little goes a long way mixed with primer or foundation which FYI love the little primer to carry in my beauty kit
