Kevyn Aucoin The Dew Drop Powder Foundation in shade DW07, 0.28 oz., US$54.00

By now you have probably guessed: that I am a hardcore beauty junkie/addict!! I have two large drawers full of products, most of which I never opened. I bought this one, along with a few other Kevyn Aucoin makeup products, when they went on clearance sale on I was a fan of the late and great Kevyn Aucoin – bless his soul, taken too soon from us – and at the sale prices, it was hard to resist even though I don’t use foundation or powders!

The full price of this is US$54.00, but I paid just US$11.40 at the time of the sale. An excellent purchase even though I have no use for it. Well, I was going through my loot and found this, so I decided to give it a try.

What it is:

An exceptionally formulated cream to powder foundation for all skin types.

• Applies with the silkiness of a cream and dries to a smooth powder
• Ideal for use as a finishing powder for liquid foundation
• Can be applied with sheer, light, medium or full coverage
• Maintains its luminosity, no matter how full the coverage
• DW 07 is a light shade with yellowy-neutral undertones

Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Silica, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyasyladipate-1, Alumina, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Simethicone, Methicone, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Isopropylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499).

This shade, DW 07, is the best match I have ever had. It beats even Shiseido, Kanebo, Sofina, for my skin tone. I guess my skin tone isn’t all yellow but has neutral undertones too! Anyway, this literally disappears into my skin when I apply it with the sponge. The coverage is sheer I would say, but buildable if you want to. After I applied a light layer, it didn’t feel or look like I had makeup on. The wear is very comfortable and long lasting – no touchup required from morning till night. It is comfortable, non drying but not oily either.

I really like this, even though I don’t normally wear makeup and have little to cover (thanks to Whoo’s skincare). The best thing is the close match to my natural skin tone – you cannot tell I am wearing it at all – it just looks like I have absolutely flawless skin when I have it on. No smearing, no streaks or other tell-tale signs.

The full price is very expensive, and because I don’t need any foundation, I won’t repurchase. But a great product all the same.
