Best of Kit
Beauty over substance
I was not impressed by the eye kit. Having had excellent experiences with all products I tried from Kevin Aucoin, I was looking forward to this but the most remarkable issue I can mention is the inpeccable packaging and the beautiful colour of the metalized surfaces. The curler does curl, the eye shadow is unremarkable, the eyebrown pencil is only okay, the brush is actually good and the mascara is effective but needs nuclear technology to be removed. I find it a mess to get it out, even with water proof solvants, and end up to actually having to manually remove the back blops that remain as residues. Overall, a disappointment.

I recommend this if you appreciate subtlety
Each item in this kit considers how best to enhance our natural features with a light hand.
The eyelash curler and mascara emphasise the lashes. One coat of mascara gives a wonderful natural look and it is the very best brush for colouring the outer lashes thereby creating the natural oval shape without any clogging.
The brow pencil allows you to create shape without looking too heavy and false.
The package all together pays great attention to detail.

A great selection but not the eye shadow shade I was expecting
This is a fantastic selection of seminal Kevyn Aucoin eye make up must haves.
I thought that I ordered the set with Whisper eye shadow which was a neutral brown instead the set with aubergine (a matte dark purple) was what I received.
I tried the shadow close to the lash line and it is actually very nice and a lovely texture that blends seamlessly.
My favourite item from the set is the brunette eye brow pencil it is absolutely incredible and perfect for precision brows.
