The Sensual Skin Enhancer
Great Multi Tasker!
The formula is so pigmented that you can really stretch its usage. For me, I wait until my moisturizer is absorbed, then smooth on a little bit (a little bit or it may pill) of the new KA Primed Skin Developer. On the back of my hand I mix some lightweight moisturizer or even the primer again with the Sensual Skin Enhancer using a big concealer brush to thin out the formula to your choosing. This is great for all over coverage, under eye circles, redness, etc. If afterward I need a little more help I use a slim concealer brush and use the formula full strength to cover pimples or spots. Seriously, take what you think you need, then cut the amount in half. Twice. Takes some getting used to, but once you find the happy place, this stuff will be your new best friend. Set with a translucent micro powder or your work can smear or transfer. Won't look makeup-ey and makes a great base for bronzer or blush.

Amazing as a concealer
This product is actually great value. It is so rich that you only need the tiniest amount to cover all your concealing needs. When I say tiny, I really mean it.
The sales lady told me it was actually a foundation but for me it's the perfect concealer. You put it on and it really doesn't budge. It's pretty heavy though and I can't really apply it without a dab of primer or moisturiser or it would pull my skin when I brush it on.
If you did want to use it as a foundation then be warned, it's for heavy coverage.

I have been looking for a product like this for a long time. It is hard to fault this product and as other reviewers have said you need the smallest amount of product. At first it may just look like a thick concealer. I have pale skin that can be prone to have redness it is also sensitive/ combination but is also prone to slight flakey dry bit on my nose and other areas. I like quite full coverage without looking caked and also without looking as though I'm wearing a lot of foundation. This is perfect for mixing & blending, it doesn't have a lot of movement on its own. I bought the Sx02 which is probably a little too pale but I find mixing this with a little moisturiser and my Laura mercier silk creme foundation (peach ivory which is quite luminescent) and a little too pink for my liking gives me a perfect coverage. It is easy to build this up to the coverage u like and I would definitely recommend starting with a little as it goes a long way. It lasts well throughout the day and up close does not look patchy or cakey. The only criticism I would have is that if u are prone to any dryness as I am in certain areas it can cling to those places. I would also say that unless u are very very pale sx02 is probably too light and works better as a concealer highlighter unless u are going to mix it with something a little darker. I would definitely recommend this and also suggest u get colour matched before u purchase.
