My favourite multi-tasking product to date, and possibly the most pigmented product I’ve come across yet, Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer has fast become one of my holy grails.
Now some people will love this product and some will hate it, and be warned – not everything works for everyone. When I first received it I was shocked – how on earth would this tiny pot of product last? But you know what they say; big things come in small packages. This powerful little pot contains an intensely pigmented, cream-based formula that will give you an even and flawless complexion and has unbelievable staying power. This product was designed to mimic the appearance of healthy luminous skin and it can hide a multitude of sins – what’s not to love about that?!
The Sensual Skin Enhancer can be used as a foundation, concealer, or a tinted moisturiser – whatever works best for you. I’ve used it all three ways, and I honestly think its gets better and better each time I use it. Because it has quite a thick creamy consistency, you only need the tiniest amount to cover blemishes or to spot conceal – even when I use it over my entire face as a foundation I use the smallest amount and that’s it (I won’t use a concealer if I’m using it over my entire face). I’d advise to apply sparingly to well moisturised and primed skin with your fingers, then buff in with a beauty sponge or a brush (I like to use the Morphe M439). Only add more if necessary for your preferred coverage, a little really does go a long way…

The versatility of this product would make it a great addition to anyone’s makeup collection, as its not just limited to being entirely high coverage. Mix it in with your moisturiser to give yourself a ‘lit from within’ look and sheer it out for a nice healthy glow. I tend to be on the oiler side, and always use a mattifying primer first to enhance the longevity of this product however I’m using it. Hydrating ingredients like jojoba oil and honey stop this product from looking cakey even though it has such a thick consistency, and overall gives you a nice dewy finish. Kevyn Aucoin have 16 shades on offer which can accommodate a wide range of skin tones and undertones – from neutral to pink to olive/yellow. Google image search swatches to find your match, that’s what I did!
To conclude, I really believe that Kevyn Aucoin have created an ‘all-in-one’ hero product to create natural looking smooth skin. If you go for one new luxury multi-tasking product in your makeup bag that you want to last, make it this one. Its worth it.
