Beauty Bites| THE Lipstick - Kevyn Aucoin



So I will say that I'm not big on playing with colour on my eyes, but for a brown girl....the lips are a great place to have a little fun.

I'll be honest, I have been late to the Kevyn Aucoin party, and was not entirely aware of the collection, however, not that I am in the know...I'm a believer. For the moment I'm just going to discuss the Matt Lipstick Colour collection, I'll save my thoughts on the concealer for another day.

These lipsticks though matt, leave my lips feeling so silky smooth, and I have had so many compliments on the finish, there is something really regal about the colours and textures and now I see why so many people are fans.

1. Persistence - This so far is my favourite lipstick EVER. The colour is divine, I never new a mauve could look so good on my skin tone, its very reminiscent of a Miss Kelly Rowland in the dirty laundry video (Don't kill the dream if you disagree!)


2. For Keeps - This is a really pretty matte nude, it takes a bit of work to blend it perfectly to suite me, but once on its very pretty.
3. Timeless - I've been avoiding oranges and corals for years... I'm not sure why but this one here, it's lovely, I find it to be much bolder then a red and its great when I'm looking for an alternative to my Ruby Woo.
 4. Enduring - I really wanted this to work on me but I't may be a little bit light for my skin, I'll report back if I can get it to work with a bit of help from a lip liner.

If you have ever been worried about playing with bolder colours and textures on your lips...don't be and hopefully this post inspires you to try a little something new.

  1. They're so nice! Might have to give them a go, I never usually wear colours or anything actually on my lips but these look good!

  2. I think each of these color look great on you! I'm definitely going to have to try some of these! Yes, I would just darken up Enduring with a brown lip pencil. Persistence is my fave. :)

  3. All of these colours suit you quite well. I've never heard of this brand before. Persistence and For Keeps stand out the most.

    Whatever you did to your eyes for these photos is a good look!

  6. Wow! The mauve colour looks fab on you! I'd say I'm an tiny bit lighter'than you but I have red undertones to my skin. So im not sure if Enduring would pass on my skin tone either. Persistence is a must buy though! How much are these?

  12. Persistence is hot on you! As a dark skin beauty, I'm always skeptical of bright colored makeup but you give me hope. I might just have to take the risk. Thank you!

  14. I tend to stick to red & pink on my lips if anything but I will try something orangey for a change.
    For keeps is such a great nude on you worth the extra blending I say!

  18. Loving the shade "for keeps". Gorgeous on you.

  19. Very nice colours Patricia. I would use the "enduring" colour as a base layer to brighten a top colour (such as peach). And I know this isn't an essay, but I noticed typos such as "matt" and "...I never new". Just trying to help for future reference.

  22. Very nice! All colours look so good on you. I also used to think that bold colours won’t suit me but since I have the hyperpigmentation treatment and my complexion improved, I’m trying on some really bold colours.
