Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist
We have been testing out the latest foundation offering The Etherealist. Kevyn Aucoin state it to be a lightweight, illuminating foundation infused with pearl pigments which reflect light and create a radiance which lightens and brightens and boosts hydration.
What do we think?
It feels beautifully fluid on application and buffs into the skin easily. It provides a light wash of cover but is also very buildable if you need a little more help in areas. It dries off quickly and feels pretty matte to the touch. The illumination is not as strong as I expected. It gives a softly satin finish, not the creamy glossy pay off which I was expecting. Skin just looks like skin really! Healthy, natural and evened out. I would say this would be an awesome foundation for an oily or combination customer who still likes a little radiance from their foundation. It would still perform well on a dryer skin but I found it did cling a little to dry patches (most foundations will). If you have a dry skin then you could mix it with your moisturiser or hydrating primer.
It lasted well on the skin and didn’t require any powdering, even on a combination skin.
The Etherealist has a great colour line up to cover the majority of skin tones. There are 16 shades available but we have 15 to share with you because one has gone AWOL!
*For some reason I got my foundations mixed up so appologies for the random number 12 in the wrong place.
This foundation is available now here for £50.00
