Aucoin Newbie


I've been wanting to try Kevyn Aucoin makeup for a few years now but I've never taken the time to look much further into it other than having a quick browse online. It's been notoriously hard to get your mitts on this side of the pond, until now. It's recently been brought into SpaceNK stores and I was a little overexcited to try my very first product this week.

'The Lipgloss' in Pasiflora is a gorgeous jelly-red with iridescent pink glitter. The packaging is quite shockingly small and square. It looks more like a nail polish at first glance.

The formula is simply wonderful. It's totally un-sticky, and the glitter isn't chunky at all, you can barely feel it on the lips. The doe foot applicator is a lot more foot-like than normal (chubby and chunky!), but it does a great job of applying just the right amount of gloss.

It's quite sheer on it's own but leaves a perfectly glossy finish to the lips. It look great layered over lipstick. And the best part? It tastes like fruit punch... I love it!

The one downside is the price. At £22 it's a serious splurge for a lipgloss, but if you're looking for a totally non-sticky, totally beautiful lipgloss then look no further. So far, so good with Kevyn Aucoin! I've got my eyes on the cult-status Sensual Skin Enhancer next.

You can pick up Kevyn Aucoin makeup now from SpaceNK online and instore.

Would love to know if any of you have tried Kevyn Aucoin? What's your favourite product?

  5. My favourites are Carlo di roma eyeshadows. A totally random company but so inexpensive and nice.

  6. It's so deceiving! I thought it was a nail varnish at first, but then read further down and it was a lipgloss, aha. Clever packaging! You will have to let us know how long the lipgloss lasts for on the lip, as well as how long the actual product lasts for also! £22 is a lot of money to spend on a lipgloss, but if it's good as you say it is then it definitely must be worth the splurge! But it does look really nice on the lip, it's hard to find a good lipgloss these days!

  13. This gloss looks really pretty :) I like the way that it is a bit watery as opposed to really pigmented. The suttle glitter makes it more beautiful than usual lipglosses~ Thanks for sharing~x

  38. This looks gorgeous! Hey Fleur, I noticed in one of your latest videos that you have the Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation. As I already love their Sun Protection Foundation (thanks to you :), can you please do a post/video comparing the two? I am really interested in their similarities/differences.
