As we just marked the 10th anniversary of makeup visionary Kevyn Aucoin's death, it's only fitting that we acknowledge what an amazing makeup artist and person he was. Although he is gone, he leaves a strong and lasting legacy through his cosmetics brand Kevyn Aucoin. We've had this brand for a few months and all us staff have our own personal favorites from the range so we were so excited when the Lip Glosses and Lip Mattes arrived!
Kevyn Aucoin's 'The Lip Gloss' come in twelve different shades that leave lips shiny and glamorous without feeling greasy or sticky. They're packed with nourishing ingredients like sunflower seed and lanolin oil. I love the pale pink of Tulapina and the nudie brown of Beaugonia. The Matte Lipsticks go one like velvet and leave lips as smooth as silk. Sound like a romance novel? Trust us, you'll fall in love with these six different richly pigmented lipsticks that leave a matte finish and doesn't smudge for hours. Best of all, you don't have to worry about dry and patchy lips since these have moisturizing agents. Try any Kevyn Aucoin product and you'll quickly see why celebrities and the world's most beautiful women turned to him to make them look naturally flawless.

Whether you shave, wax yourself or seek professional help when it comes to body hair management, there's always a few that got away. Typically this occurs when you least want it to, right before a date, or perhaps you wandered into some bad lighting that highlights those few whiskers on your upper lip the beauty therapist missed. Although it sounds like an episode out of Seinfeld, this happens to me more than I care to admit and I always feel totally helpless. Not anymore.
