Kevyn Aucoin was on Hautelook a few weeks ago, and since I am a big fan of his (If you’ve never seen his books, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Face Forward and Making Faces, they are super inspiring!!) but have never tried his makeup, I decided to get two lip glosses since Hautelook sells brands at a nice discounted price. Being me, I went for the two standout shades: an icy bright blue and a shimmery orange.
I’m sure you can tell from the pictures, but these glosses are extremely sheer. I guess I somewhat knew that they weren’t going to be INSANELY pigmented, because very few people would go out with neon orange and freezepop blue lipgloss, but these barely show up on me at all, and my lips aren’t very pigmented at all. I will say that I do really like the somewhat paling effect the blue gloss gives; you can tell from the two photos that the picture of my lips with the blue gloss is much lighter.
The stickiness on these was average, but the stopper in the tube (so that you dont get a TON of gloss on the wand) is a bit too small, as I had to go back for more gloss at least twice just to get enough.
