Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder ReviewWednesday, April 17, 2013
A few months ago, if you'd of said the name Kevyn Aucoin, I'd of probably said 'who?' But recently due to loads of bloggers and their dogs raving about his products, KA got onto my radar. You know the products are going to be pricey when they're sold at Space NK. You can feel your bankcard trying to cement itself into your purse, and your bank balance is already comfort eating to ease the pain. Recently I was a bit naughty and bought not one but two Kevyn Aucoin products. I feel like Jamie Laing as I'm expecting a bank manager to come knocking on my door any day, (I've got the faux fur coat ready to throw on when this happens) but let me tell you, my cheeks are very happy. Today I'll be talking about one of the products, the cult Celestial Powder in Candlelight.
You guys know that I'm partial to a highlighter, I've got more than you can shake a fist at, but I haven't found that perfect one. Sometimes they can look a bit too much for the daytime, underneath the wrong light, you can look like a Edward Cullen/Amy Childs hybrid. The look I always strive for is the glowy look, you know that 'I've just rolled out of bed and yes I look this damn radiant naturally' look. It's not a easy one to achieve, let me tell you. Millie Mackintosh is queen of this look, if it wasn't so stalker like, I would pester her to tell me her full highlighter routine. Dior Amber Diamond is a good little highlighter, but it's more of a nighttime edition, it was great at Christmas, you know when even glitter on your eyelids is acceptable in the day. But with spring/summer coming along, it's time to get a bit more natural. Yes you, pack up that glitter. The Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight may be the perfect daytime highlighter. It's so understated that it's just amazing, it does everything you want ticking from the list of highlighter requests. Glowy- tick, Radiant- tick, not too TOWIE like- tick.
It's basically a powder, nothing special. It's described as having a golden apricot hue, I would say on my skin tone
