Kevyn AuCoin Sculpting Powder in Light: Review and Swatches!

Many people have tried the Kevyn AuCoin Sculpting Powder (shade Medium- the original shade), however he has introduced two new shades! The one I purchased to try out is in the shade Light. It’s also available in the shade Deep. I am an NW10, so essentially as pale as a ghost. The Sculpting Powder retails for $53 CAD ($44 USD) and has 3 grams of product. This can be purchased at Sephora and the Kevyn AuCoin website.




Let’s start with the packaging. This small compact has a beautiful red to black gradient that shimmers in the sunlight. It’s small, and can fit in the palm of your hand (maybe about two inches long, and slim). It’s perfect for travel. The gold detailing is a beautiful touch. I had a huge issue figuring out how to open this- it’s actually very easy! You press the gold bar at the bottom and it pops open, which I really like! The packaging is sturdy, and has some weight to it. With the Sculpting Powder being so small and expensive, I’m glad there is a luxurious feel.

The inside is nice as well. The mirror is protect by a sheet of plastic, and the pan size is large (for the size of the product). I don’t think the pan is very deep though. I’ve used this a couple times now to get a feel for it, and a little goes a long way. The same colour scheme is used throughout the inside and outside of the product.

This is what the shade ‘Light’ looks like on my skin tone. As you can see, it is very pigmented for contouring with and will really sculpt out your face. It’s cool toned but still warm which makes it look nice on my face, sometimes shades that are too cool end up looking muddy.

Here is ‘Light’ sheered out. As you can see, it’s not patchy and has a beautiful finish. I find this very easy to blend on my face and I only have to dip my brush into the pan once. My favourite way to apply this for a medium contour is with a stiff angled brush (I use the Pro Angled Contour Brush #75 from Sephora!)

I really do enjoy this product, contouring as a pale girl can be really hard! If you can afford it, I definitely suggest going to Sephora and making the plunge. What are some of your Ride or Die contouring products for pale girls? Let me know!
