The concealer that has changed my life.

If you think I am talking about the Tarte shape tape concealer, then you need to re-evaluate your life decisions! So this 27th birthday, I decided to go all out and indulge myself with some birthday gifts! So besides the Huda Beauty palette (review here), I finally bought the Kevyn Aucoin's most talked about sensual skin enhancer. £38 FOR SUCH A TINY JAR! I am literally shooketh. I got it directly from the Cult Beauty website using my 15% birthday discount.

But having said that, I know this teeny jar (18g) is going to last me more than a good 6 months. It is pigmented as hell, girl! I got the shade SX-11 since I am a MAC NC-42 so this goes perfectly. However, I am still contemplating popping into Harvey Nicholas and trying out the SX-10 shade just to be sure that I am the perfect shade. 

The skin enhancer can be used as a foundation as well as a concealer. I use it sparingly on my face during daily errands and I swear my skin looks super flawless. Having researched a bit, I have found reviews that this product doesn't really work well for dry skin. It clings on the dry patches and makes it look awful. However, this works really really good for oily/combination skin. 

I have been using the concealer for more than a week and I can safely say that it has become one of my cult favourite products. I have even gone to sleep while wearing the concealer and it legit didn't budge from my skin! If you have dry skin, you can try and use an oil based product underneath so that it helps to glide on smoothly. I apply the product with a small buffing brush because like I said, you really just need a very small amount. Even less than a pea-sized amount and once I have buffed it in, I like to go in with a beauty blender as to make my skin look flawless and give it that radiant healthy look.



The only drawback that I seem to find is that it does have fragrance which is kind of a bummer if you are very very careful about your skin.  It is kind of an expensive product but considering that it will last you a really really long time, it's absolutely perfect. 

Have you tried the sensual skin enhancer? What are your thoughts about it?

  1. I have not tried it but it does sound pretty magical! I have oily, acne-prone skin so it may be something I could greatly benefit from. That price tag does scare me, though! LOL.

  5. Interesting that it works better on oily/combination skin. I have oily skin, so I'm intrigued. I don't love that it has fragrance. But it looks really effective on your arm. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I absolutely adore the Kevyn Aucoin skin enhancer, its magic in a bottle. I have dry skin, and so I just make sure I pump up my moisturizer and it works great.

  9. A good concealer is definitely life changing! I know that because it is difficult to find something for the Asian skin tone. Happy for you :)
