The Perfect Contour, Kevyn Aucoin.

9 December 2015 5 comments

Let's just jump straight to the point here. Do you like radiant skin? And are you after a subtle, seamless contour and highlight? If you've answered yes to both, keep reading, as this may well become your holy grail too.

Seemingly like all my favourite products, it's taken me an age to pick up Kevyn Aucoin's The Creamy Glow Sculpting Duo. A teeny, streamlined palette in his ombre colours with gold detailing, it's a great traveller.

Inside, you get a full size mirror and two pans; the sculpting cream in Medium and his Candlelight cream highlighter.  

Candlelight is the queen of the highlighter world. Neither gold nor pink in tone, it creates the perfect, subtle champagne, soft-glow sheen without sparkle or shimmer and although looks reasonably opaque in the pan, it translates as a translucent veil, making it great for most skin tones and shades.

The sculpting shade is cool-toned without looking ashy or muddy and creates the perfect level of subtle shadow that's undetectable as makeup from all directions. Who could frankly ask for more?! Well actually I can, more product. Of both shades. Just a bigger palette. Thank you in advance Kevyn. 

Both creams are long lasting and emollient, blending seamlessly (I just use my fingers as you can clearly see!) into the skin, for the ultimate, believable, undetectable light and shade. It's my beauty-go-to essential for instant defining and illuminating. (I love it so much I've bought two!)

If you're after a great powder version that won't break the bank, check out my review of the Seventeen Contour Palette, it's surprisingly great.
