Kevyn Aucoin, The Essential Eye Shadow Set Palette #2 Review

Recently I had the chance to work with the Kevyn Aucoin Essential Eye Shadow set, Palette #2 (found at and absolutely fell in love.  As soon as I opened up this palette, I was blown away by the radiance of the 5 different shadows which, not to mention, blended into perfection. There’s many choices of shadow applications in just this one shadow set. However, I chose a romantic smokey eye ( shown in the picture below) easily applied in just minutes. 

The lightest shade, which was white, was applied under the brow. The  medium shade ( a shimmery tan) was applied to the lid and the lavender blended into the crease along with the darkest color, which was only applied to the outer crease. Last but not least, my favorite part of applying shadow – the highlighter was applied to the corner of my eye and under my lower lid. The Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Eye Shadow Set lasted all day, didn’t crease and will look great with any eye color!
