Every girl should try red lips. Its sexy, passionate and a classic look.
The limited edition Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Kit ‘Femme-Fatale was created to make ‘wow factor ‘lips with three easy to use products to create the classic red lip look.
The three products are the Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in ‘Cerise’, the Expert Lip Colour in ‘Carliana’ and the Lip Gloss in ‘Pasiflora’. The lip pencil is a red raspberry colour, the lipstick is a blue toned red and the lip gloss is a very sheer colour to give a real gloss finish. From these three colours you can create a matte lip or a gloss look. Within the box you have a step-by-step guide or you can create your own look. All three products are good but I have tried using the lip gloss on its own and it was too sheer and only gave a glossy look to your lip so no real colour was seen.
I love red lip and this kit is a handy with easy to use products to re-create that look.
My first beauty purchase of the year was from the sales. Unfortunately I didn’t buy much from the sales compared to last year. I thought the sales offerings this year was poor. Good for the bank balance maybe but not for me to add more beauty products!
I did manage to buy from the SpaceNK sale, my first Kevyn Aucoin palette. I don’t often see his products, especially eye shadow palettes in a sale. This palette is The Featherlights Palette. When you look at it, it looks beautiful. It’s a sleek, compact case in dark burgundy and feels nice. When you open it you have a decent-sized mirror. You have 5 eye shadows. The top two shades are a light pink and a light magnolia. The other 3 colours are a matte grey, a satin green and a satin grey-brown. The pigmentation isn’t so strong and the shades are subtle and delicate. They are blendable but I did find the fall-out was more than I expected especially when blending shades. I did found them to be quite chalky in texture and I was little disappointed by this.
The RRP is £46.00 and if I paid the full amount I would feel cheated to be honest. I don’t think it’s worth anything like the full RRP but I only paid £23.00 but I still feel that is quite a bit of money compared to other rival’s palettes. I don’t feel it’s a ‘WOW’ palette for the money. Sometimes I feel the marketing and the name fools you into thinking it will be better than others.
I will still use it but next time I will be slightly more careful when buying online in the sales!
