First of all, I swear to god I intended to purchase the primrose? shade I know how weird that seems since I’m a die hard bronzer fan. When it comes to bronzers you just don’t know how dark the item is until you see it in person/or swatched ya know? So really when I got my shipment yesterday, I was like hmm bronze? However, once I saw the color I was like “wait this could really work infact how pretty is this shade” within minutes I went from I don’t know to YAY. The color is universally flattering in my opinion. There’s really no scent to the product or I couldn’t detect anything (which is generally what turns me off with certain bronzers with the exception to the Guerlain one because its so pretty and I love the scent)I tried mixing it with foundation and the other way was to dab some on after all my foundation was applied. I like option two where I apply after the foundation is on because its more obvious that way-I love the way it made my makeup look not to mention I got compliments like crazy! You know how I always get emotional about how much I miss my SephoraXCharlotte Ronson luminizer? This could well be that replacement I love it so much. It comes in a tube with a pump on it!

All this talk of me wanting to try something Kevyn Aucoin finally came true in the form of a Sephora sample(thank you Sephora) Here I was so bummed I couldn’t purchase shade 6 or 7 during the BI/VIB sale…but hey, I’d rather sample it first before purchasing so its a win-win. Right now Im using shade 2 which is lighter so it blends well with my darker cc cream. I blend the dark cc cream and the shade 2 with a beauty blender and it looks great! Im guessing when I try shade 5-7 one of those will be perfect. I used the sample about 4,5 times it looks small but its quite generous the foundation is creamy and similar to the Koh Gen Do aqua foundation which I always liked.
Im getting ready to the try the shade 6 next-I’m thinking i’ll use something light with it since that one’s darker.
Overall rating: 9/10 I could totally replace my Koh Gen Do aqua foundation with this one. I’ve tried many foundations and the only ones I’ve came back to so far are Charlotte Tilbury, and Koh Gen Do but I am adding Kevyn Aucoin’s Etherealist in there.
