Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (SSE) Review

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is a concentrated multi-use product. This is because it is a foundation, concealer and a highlighter. All in one.

SX11 is a perfect match for NC37-42 skins. Shade matching was slightly difficult but worth the time I’ve invested trying out all the yellow undertones.  Also if you want more sheer effect you’d mix with it your moisturizer.
As a foundation – I mixed a pea size amount with Caudalie’s Day Perfecting Fluid and applied with finger tips. Even after mixing I still managed to get a full coverage that wasn’t cakey. I also loved the natural flawless finish it gave.
As a concealer – it worked beautifully to cover up those stubborn dark circles. However, this does emphasis lines so powdering is essential.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (SSE) Review

Moisturizer truly is a MUST prior to using Sensual Skin Enhancer, especially if used as an all-over foundation. Depending on the coverage you desire you can be flexible with the amount of moisturizer / primer you want to use.

Sadly, it contains mineral oils and may clog pores for some. I’m sure this will be a factor that would affect your decision in purchasing. I prefer to use Sensual Skin Enhancer occasionally i.e best for photo shoots, weddings & events due to the high coverage and flawless finish. But not for everyday because I find this heavy for daily use.

Advice : This isn’t your usual ‘slap-it-on-and-go’ kind of product as it needs little more time than usual for mixing & blending. It can easily look cakey if you don’t know how to apply correctly. One more thing don’t be fooled by the travel-size packaging. Little goes a long way. A VERY small amount can give coverage for the entire face. Overall I’m absolutely happy with it although it will be occasional product. More of a S.O.S kind of product. You may think it is expensive, but when you realize that a little does go a long way, it is priced fairly.

I purchased Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (SSE) at Pro Makeup Boutique, in Oasis Center for AED 280/-
