Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight Celestial Powder

Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight The Celestial Powder
Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight The Celestial Powder

Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight The Celestial Powder ($44.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a shimmering, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight (P, $52.00) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). CoverGirl Bronze (200) (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P) is darker (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Tropical Days (P, $48.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). MAC Global Glow (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Highlight #3 (P) is warmer, brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sunlight (LE, $20.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Celestial Powder is supposed to give “an agenlic glow” that doesn’t look “glittery.” There are now three shades in the range (the other two are Candlelight and Starlight), and Sunlight is more comparable to Starlight, as it has more color oomph and stronger shimmer compared to Candlelight (which is particularly nice for those who like subtle to moderate highlighters). This is more of a highlighting bronzer, as it adds a lot of glow and luminosity to the skin, but it does add warmth. It is very pigmented, but the texture is soft, blendable, and forgiving, so it can easily be applied with a lighter hand for barely-there golden sheen or more intensely for true-to-pan bronzing. The consistency of the powder was smooth and finely-milled, and this didn’t emphasize my pores or skin texture. It wore well for almost nine hours on me before fading.

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer
Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) contains a pink-peach highlighter, mid-tone rose pink blush, and reddish-brown bronzer that create a a muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a luminous finish when swirled together. Too Faced Baby Love (P, $26.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Daybreak (503) (P, $46.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). CoverGirl Medium Rose (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar).

Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Make Love Instead (P, $5.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $22.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Makeup Geek Heart Throb (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose (LE, $28.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan, so it was easy to get color onto the brush while still being nearly effortless to diffuse and soften on the skin. The shimmer produced a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but wasn’t so subtle that it was hard to see. The only downside was that there was some excess product kicked up in the pan, which made it harder to use the shades individually as inevitably one shade’s powdery bits would wind up on another, so it is a product I think is better for someone who doesn’t require them to apply as three distinct shades. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) consists of a gradient of light, peachy-beige; muted coral; and subdued brown with reddish undertones that swirls and creates a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a luminous finish.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” The powder was very soft, smooth, and blendable, while kicking up a bit of excess powder in the pan, but it didn’t look dusty or dry on the skin. It seemed denser and more refined compared to some of Kevyn Aucoin’s more matte blushes. The texture sat well on the skin and yielded a noticeable sheen but wasn’t overtly shimmery nor did it emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation that could easily be applied with a lighter hand for a more diffused, sheerer look, if desired. On me,
it wore well for eight hours before fading. It’s easier to use it two shades at a time, rather than one, but it is possible to use just one shade at a time with most highlighter brushes.

6 Red Blushes for Maximum Rouge

We may call it rouge, but there are far less red-hued blushes on the marketplace, though luckily, we have some and many of the permanent ones are fantastic. Here are three warmer and three cooler takes on red blush. When working with deeper or more richly pigmented shades, my best tip is to use a fan brush, which will allow you to build up the color and intensity slowly and easily. Also, it’s nice to have a buffing brush on hand, or if you use liquid foundation, use the residual product left on the brush to tamp down over-applied blush.

  1. Clinique Cola Pop — A Warm Red with a Luminous finish.
  2. NARS Taos — A Warm Red with a Pearl finish.
  3. Kevyn Aucoin Fira — A Warm Orange with a Satin finish.
  4. Surratt Beauty Rougeur — A Cool Red with a Satin finish.
  5. MAC Frankly Scarlet — A Warm Red with a Semi-Matte finish.
  6. Urban Decay Quiver — A Cool Red with a Satin finish.

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Makeup Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette
Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette ($165.00 for 0.79 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one contour powder. My favorite products are the highlighter and contour powders, which will come as no surprise, as I have reviewed them favorably in the past as standalones. You actually get more of each product in the palette than in the individual compact, but for $65 you could purchase the Contour Book Volume II, which also contains 0.17 oz. worth of the Celestial Powder and 0.14 oz. of the Sculpting Powder (plus other standout product sin the brand’s line, like a small version of Starlight and larger sizes of the cream versions of the highlight/contour found in this palette). I don’t think the eyeshadows are worth the additional expense; the shades themselves are dupable, but the formula feels dusty, dry, and sometimes powdery and other times stiffer. They blended out better than I expected, and they lasted seven to eight hours (so not too shabby), but they were more semi-sheer to semi-opaque and prone to sheering out when applied.

According to my calculations, the palette contains a total value of $263.20 worth of product. Here’s how the value breaks down:

  • $68 worth of The Celestial Powder
  • $56 worth of The Sculpting Powder
  • $139.20 worth of The Essential Eyeshadow (going off of The Essential Eyeshadow Set price per ounce)
