The Best & Worst of Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip Colors

Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip Colors
Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip Colors

Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip Color ($30.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is is described as a “high impact, metallic liquid lip color” that has “intense pigments” and a “moisture-rich” formula that is “comfortable” and “long-wearing.” The texture was smoother and less tacky compared to other metallic lip gloss formulas that have debuted in the last year, so these did seem more comfortable and less maintenance as a result. They were fairly pigmented with some shades being richer than others. The formula was lightly to moderately hydrating with average wear time (around four hours). There are also two that are specifically listed as Top Coats (Cyber Opal and Cyber Sky), so those are sheerer and very much designed for layering.

My favorites were Cyber Sky, Titanium, and Carbon.

Gold

Kevyn Aucoin Gold The Molten Lip Color ($30.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was a warm-toned gold for sure, but it had browner undertones, which made it less orange-based and should be more flattering across more skin tones. The gloss was light-medium in weight, lightly tacky, and smooth on the lips. It spread well across the lips, yielded nearlly opaque coverage, and lasted for four hours on me. The formula was lightly hydrating while worn.

Rose Gold

Kevyn Aucoin Rose Gold The Molten Lip Color ($30.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a peachy coral with warm undertones and lots of fine, gold pearl (along with pink). I was surprised that it was not more pigmented in a single layer, and while buildable to a point, it did feel a little too heavy with a second layer and was more prone to sliding around so one layer was ultimately the most comfortable. It had medium pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly with a high-shine finish. The texture was light-medium in weight with light tackiness and a smidgen of color that pooled in my deepest lip line. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was hydrating.

Cyber Opal

Kevyn Aucoin Cyber Opal The Molten Lip Color Topcoat ($30.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a pale, pinkish white with fine pink and lavender pearl that shifts from pink to peachy-gold. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer. The gloss had a really milky quality to it, which made it prone to noticeable settling into every lip line I had, though the moderate shine and fine pearl helped distract from it when viewed at a normal distance. The consistency was light-medium in thickness–thicker than the average gloss but not goopy–with a slightly tacky texture. It was one of the lighter-weight glosses that have come out in the metallic finish lately.

The formula is described as a “comfortable long-wearing topcoat that compliments any lipstick color” that can “also be worn alone.” It lasted for four hours on me, which wasn’t terrible but not beyond the average gloss. The lipgloss did feel comfortable on as it was moderately hydrating. I would recommend dabbing it onto the center of lips over another lip color but using far less than a single pull of product as the base is too opaque and white-based to work well over a lot of other products (causes them to streak or become uneven and dramatically alters the color).

Sahara

Kevyn Aucoin Sahara The Neo Highlighter ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) is supposed to contain the brand’s famous Celestial Powder in three shades: Candlelight, Starlight, and Sunlight. The formula definitely doesn’t feel quite as finely-milled or as silky as the standalone Celestial Powders, but the bigger difference is that Candlelight and Starlight are both much, much warmer and less luminous in this palette (Sunlight was very similar). The texture not being quite as luxurious as the individual shades was only something I noticed by feel, not so much when I applied it to the skin, blended out the powders, and wore them. If you like warmer, more bronzy highlighters, you’ll probably enjoy this compact.

Ibiza

Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza The Neo Limelight ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) is a mega-sized cheek palette with three shades of highlighter that form a gradient from pale gold to light lavender to lavender. When mixed together, the effect was a light-medium lavender with a subtle warmth and a luminous finish. Each shade was wide enough to be worn alone, though there’s no distinct beginning and end for the shades. The consistency of the palette was fairly smooth, soft, and blendable, while the pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque. The only shade I had trouble with was the darker lavender, which was drier in feel and had buildable coverage. There was a bit of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but it did not read powdery or dry on the skin. The effect was moderate to high in shine, so the palette would work best for someone who likes a stronger highlighter/highlighting blush.
