Product of the Week: Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer

I was in NYC last week to attend a makeup workshop by renowned makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic aka Kim Kardashian's makeup artist. I suffered some burns on my face after using a personal microdermabrasion system and wanted to find a foundation/concealer with the heaviest coverage I could find to cover up the scabs. Mario mentioned at his workshop that Kevyn Aucoin has the best foundations around- and being that I havent seen this brand in Atlanta, I decided to splurge and get it from Henri Bendel in New York.

First Impressions:
- Looks like a creamy, whipped concealer
- Great shade range
- Cute packaging
- Smells great

After Swatching:
- OMG you only need the TINIEST and I mean TINY amount to get flawless coverage
- Dried matte
- My skin breathed through

After Using For a Week:
- Best foundation/concealer I have ever used
- I used this as a foundation all over my skin and got the best coverage I have ever gotten, while still looking natural
- Great oil control
- This jar will last me forever!
- Great concealer for under eye area to brighten

- Great coverage
- Makes skin still look like skin
- Great at brightening under the eye
- Great oil control properties
- Great color range for most people
- Creamy

- I have to mix 11 and 13 to get my foundation shade
- Creased under my eyes
