Legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin found his calling at an early age, using his sisters as his first test subjects when it came to putting on makeup. The Louisiana legend moved to New York City as an adult to work in the makeup field. Stars ranging from Cher to Gwyneth Paltrow had him on speed dial. Aucoin had just started his own makeup line before his tragic passing in 2002, and his legend lives on in these amazing lipsticks.
Like the Molten Lip Color, a liquid lipstick that comes in five flattering metallic shades: gold, copper, titanium, bronze, and carbon. We like to either use the lip color alone to add some pop to our lips, or layer it on over lipstick for an ombre look. Either way, we feel golden wearing this lipstick.
We also love the Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Color for the way it goes on so smoothly and comes in 12 flattering shades. The lipstick contains Irvingia gabonesis, a fruit butter that is called "wild mango" and known for the way it moisturizes and heals our lips. A lipstick that comes in great colors and heals chapped lips at the same time? Amazing.
