It took me quite a while to let myself buy one of the most expensive sculpting powders: Kevyn Aucoin The sculpting powder in the shade Medium.

The product is compact. It was housed in a pouch. The packaging always collects all my fingerprints. It opens up 180 degrees when I press the golden lock there. Inside it has a mirror. The letters don’t fade away over time.

The back of the packaging looks like this:

General product info:

Size: 4g

Shelf life: 12 months

Made in the USA

The sculpting powder is of a right shade for me which is orange-tone free.

I want to show you the swatches:

And compare it with some other products from my collection:

I applied them in the same order.

I want to show you how this product looks on my skin.

Only some foundation on my skin:

With the sculpting powder on: Full-on makeup look:

This powder is easy to pick up with a brush. It’s a little bit dusty but at the same time, it goes a long way. It seems to me that the powder requires some time to get used to and not to stain your skin with it. Be sure to apply as little as possible and only after that pack the color to the payoff you want to get. I’m in love with this shade of the sculpting powder.

As for the staying power, it’s also fine, about 10 hours.

The only thing that upsets me is the price tag. I understand that it’s an iconic product but there are so many other good sculpting powders in the market today. Some of them are much more affordable price-wise.
