Best of Beauty 2018: Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book Volume 2

2018 was the year of great beauty discoveries for me. So instead of just doing the top 18 of 2018, I’m using the entire month of December to give you the deets on all of my favorite cruelty-free beauty products that I picked up this year. From makeup to personal care, I’ve got you! One product for each day ✨

Welcome (or welcome back) to my Best of Beauty MONTH-LONG countdown! Every day this month, I will be doing reviews on 31 of my favorite beauty products that I tried in 2018.

I grabbed this palette on a whim early this year. Kevyn Aucoin’s book (one of multiple) Making Faces was the standard for how to use makeup to transform the face. So, when I saw this on my way out of Sephora one day, I decided to grab it.

First, let’s talk about the packaging. It is beautiful. When you open the front cover, the first two “pages” include a guide on how to use the products to sculpt and accentuate your face and eyes. The next “pages” contain a mirror and the products: a sculpting cream, sculpting powder, highlighting cream, powder highlighter and four eyeshadows.

To be honest, I’ve never actually used the eyeshadows. The face products, on the other hand, are truly game-changing. The colors are perfect for creating the most natural looking contour and highlight.

The cool-toned sculpting products cast a shadow without making the face look muddy or bronzed. The highlight is not the least bit glittery, and somehow makes your skin look like it is just glowing, even the powder.

Even after I finish up the products in this face palette, I will definitely go out to buy the individual pans. They are seriously that good.

What is your favorite face palette? Have you found the perfect sculpting or highlighting products? Let’s chat!
