Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Review - SX12



I have lusted over the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancers for so long. They have been something that has been on my wish list since day one. I can remember once watching a Wayne Goss video and he mentioned this product and since then I have been desperate for them.

But back when I first saw that I was about 15 and in no way could afford nearly £40 for a foundation or concealer. If I went up to my mum or dad and asked for that much money for Kevyn Aucoin they would have laughed at me.

Even now in my early 20’s and earning my own money I just couldn’t justify spending that much money on something that is smaller than a film canister. But I have heard nothing but amazing things about these Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancers so I thought it was about time that I just bit the bullet and bought one.

So I got this one through Cult Beauty and I think I paid £38 for it. I couldn’t believe it when it got delivered just how small it was. The only words to describe this is teeny tiny. It fits in the palm of my hand with more than enough room around it.

So, I got this one through Cult Beauty and I think I paid £38 for it. I couldn’t believe it when it got delivered just how small it was. The only words to describe this is teeny tiny. It fits in the palm of my hand with more than enough room around it.



The Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer contains 18g of product. This compared to normal foundations is nearly half the amount. Most standard foundations are 30ml equivalent to 30g. I know one of the uses of this can be for concealer so in that respect there is a good amount of product.

I wanted to use this specific one as a foundation. I know for some people this is far too thick to be used all over the face but I have areas of hyperpigmentation that I really like to cover. If I have a light foundation on and I can see that below I think it looks quite muddy so it is important for me to cover everything.

I used this by taking my makeup spatula and taking the tiniest amount. I then swipe that onto my face. Then taking the edge of the spatula I start to spread it around my face. Honestly this step does resemble me spreading butter!



Once it is sporadically around my face I then go in with a large blending brush like the Morphe M439 and really buff it into the skin. Using this brush can really sheer the foundation out which is great because it makes it really wearable. And then if I want to really push it into my skin I will take my damp Beauty Blender and just work the product in.

One thing I will say about the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is that they can be quite difficult to blend. I think that is due to the super high pigmentation in them. But if you were to apply this with your fingers for example the heat from your hands makes it so much more blendable.

Also, there is a smell to this foundation/concealer. It isn’t exactly pleasant but once it is blended and set into place it fades away and you can’t smell anything anymore.



The coverage of this Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is super full coverage. It covers everything so well without even having to go in with anymore. On my cheeks, I added a little more than the rest of my face but it didn’t feel cakey or thick, it just helped to cover everything. Also, because this is so high coverage and highly pigmented only the tiniest amount is needed to do a full face of makeup. I can see this lasting me for a very long time.

I have used this Kevyn Aucoin product now as a foundation for well over a month and I love it. I know that I will make sure that I always have one of these in my makeup bag, if not for a foundation all over my face but just to conceal my problem areas. I cannot highly recommend this enough. And if you were worried about the price for the amount of product I can assure you that it really isn’t an issue.

As normal I have linked below to all of the products that I have mentioned in this post. So please feel free to leave me any comments below and if you have tried it I would love to hear from you and what your thoughts are.

  1. I've wanted this for so long too but saw it in the shop once and it put me off as it was so tiny, but now you've convinced me again! I think I'd find this too much as foundation but it'd be really useful to always have for any pesky blemishes!
