Kevyn Aucoin’s newest release the Neo-Lights Collection Palettes, is my “can’t enough of” newest favorite makeup lovely. At first, I have to be honest, I thought, here comes yet “another” bronzer/ highlighter combo. Truth be told, this is not your ordinary bronzer and highlighter, the possibilities and pigments are the real deal when it comes to wearability/ multi-function. I like how nicely this powder builds on application.
Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo-Lights comes in two versions, Sahara and Ibiza, one is for medium/ deep tones and Ibiza is the cool tone combination highlighter (pink to purple). Also, not to be outdone, is the dual-fiber brush angled bronzer Neo Powder Brush that will help you create and place your powder in all the right places. Here’s where I find this lovely Neo-Lights magic, you can use this product all over your face to highlight, contour and add to your eyes and even cupid’s bow. I want to note that the highlighter while illuminating doesn’t leave a heavy glittery finish.
Moreover, let’s talk about size! Because size in makeup products matters a lot. The warm tone Neo Highlighter in Sahara is valued at $58 / 0.74 oz – 21 g), to some this might be hefty cost but here you are getting a three-in-one palette that includes Candlelight, Starlight, and Sunlight. It’s cool sister Ibiza is another 3-in-1 palette featuring colors ranging from light iridescent pinks to a purple gradient. I plan on creating a LOTD on another post so you can see them on me, they are truly gorgeous powders. For me, being an artist who doesn’t favor heavy glittery powders or overstated makeup, the subtlety of Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo Lights is what caught my attention.
The Neo Powder Brush is valued at $60 and it pairs with these two to help apply these powder highlighters/ bronzers flawlessly. On a personal note, I’ve been carrying Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer foundations in my kit for more than a year, and if you haven’t had a chance, I recommend them without reservation. These are my first Kevyn Aucoin press samples and I can say without a doubt, I am a fan. Kevyn Aucoin Beauty is available both retail and online at Sephora, Barneys NYC, Beautylish, Camera Ready Cosmetics (for MUA pro’s) and Space NK.
