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 less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). CoverGirl Bronze (200) (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow (P, $48.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Global Glow (P, $33.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Highlight #3 (P, ) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sunlight (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Tropical Days (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (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.

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Matte Radiance Baked Powder formula is supposed to have “natural color with soft matte radiance” with “sheer, buildable coverage” that lasts “8 hours.” The texture was soft, smooth, and very lightly dusty, but it still applied well to the skin without looking powdery or dry (I have normal-to-dry skin). It was easy to blend and diffuse the edges of the bronzer on the skin to get a soft, natural warmth. The color payoff was semi-sheer, but buildable, and should work for those who like barely-there bronzer and those who want more noticeable warmth on the skin. The bronzer stayed on well for just over eight hours before I noticed slight signs of fading.

There are four bronzer-liker shades in the range, and the first three are all fairly similar, while the last one is considerably darker.

The Matte Radiance Baked Powder formula is supposed to have “natural color with soft matte radiance” with “sheer, buildable coverage” that lasts “8 hours.” Now, this isn’t as luminous as Highlight (010), and I can see more of that “matte radiance” concept with the more bronzer-like shades. The texture was very smooth and finely-milled, thin but not dusty, and blended out nicely on the skin without skipping or turning patchy. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (closer to opaque after three layers on me). The bronzer lasted well for eight hours on me–exactly as marketed!–before fading. There are four bronzer-liker shades in the range, and the first three are all fairly similar, while the last one is considerably darker.

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. Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Baby Love (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (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 ($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. Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Revlon Racy Rose (008) (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

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.

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Sweet Tea is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish, but there were a few gold sparkles in the product. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky feel in the pan, which was fairly blendable and lasted for eight hours on me. Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lush Light Bronze (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn’t bind well with the color itself, so it doesn’t tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

Gator Wings is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. There are large glitter particles in this one, and they show up on the face a lot, but they do not look even, so sometimes they catch the light and look sparkly, while other times they don’t and look more like specks of dirt on the skin. This emphasized my skin’s natural texture quite a bit, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I would recommend using a very light touch and a fan brush, then tapping powder over it to minimize the effect. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning patchy. Fenty Beauty Fire Crystal (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar).

#SFS is a light-medium, muted, peachy-pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too dusty or too firm.

Natural Peaches is a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the consistency was so soft that it was dusty, which led to it sheering out when it was applied to the skin. This would benefit from a primer, as it would give it a better surface to adhere to. It wore well for seven hours. Sephora Biscotti (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Millennial (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Toffee (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S714 Bisque (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Dogman is a medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a dash of fine gold sparkle. The sparkles dust away almost immediately upon application, so I would consider this a matte brown overall. The formula was very smooth and finely-milled, but it kicks up excess product and sheers out on the skin. I noticed that it also faded after a few minutes to more of a muted brown, whereas initially it had more of a warm, burnt orange appearance. After that initial change, the color was good for seven hours. Zoeva Cheap Bar (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Top Notch (LE, $5.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Big Baby is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Sassy Bun is a medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a looser consistency in the pan and was a bit drier to work with, so some of the shimmer seemed to separate from the base color when I blended it out. I think it would be better over a primer or with a slightly dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Viseart Minx #4 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sippy Sippy is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle separates from the base color, so applied, it looks mostly matte, if not entirely matte. The sparkles were trapped in the brush or fell out when I blended out the color. It had a really soft, silky, and finely-milled feel to the powder itself, but it did sheer out against bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Define) (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Haunting is a muted, light-medium mauve with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I don’t think this works well without a good primer, and then it should be patted in place but minimal blending should occur or else the shimmer pulls away from the base color. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Clarins Silver Pink (05) (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Aglow (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Mancat is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.
