The highlighter every woman needs in her life!


A couple of days ago I posted about Kevyn’s Acoin’s Celestial Bronzing Veil, if you missed it you can catch up here. So I’ve been wracking my brains on how the hell you follow a review of such an amazing product? Hmmmmmmm…

The only thing that can top the Celestial Bronzing Veils is the worlds best highlighter, Celestial itself! Now originally Celestial was released as a powder and the shade was Candlelight. Now as I have mentioned previously it is unavailable nation wide. However fear not, because a little birdy at Kevyn Aucoin has informed me it should be back on the shelves soon as it’s being reformulated. Hoorah!

Now if you’re wondering what all the fuss is about Celestial Candlelight let me fill you in. First of all Kevyn Aucoin was one of, if not the most talented makeup artist to walk the planet. Not just that but he was an innovator in the cosmetic industry. Kevyn was the first makeup artist to present a complete line of colours that catered for every skin tone. Before Kevyn most foundations were pink based, people with lighter skin shopped at one place and people with darker skin another. Kevyn changed all that and led the way for other artists such as Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown and even M.A.C.!

As I’ve stated previously I consider Kevyn’s line the most beautiful in existence. If someone told me I could only shop at one counter it would definitely be Kevyn’s. Every single product is exceptional! His pièce de résistance however has to be Celestial Candlelight, it is so beyond gorgeous. It applies beautifully and leaves a stunning luminous  shimmer wherever placed, I have never ever seen a highlighter so incredible.

Now the powder version may not be in stock but there are other options, thank the Lord! You can go for the Liquid version, or the creamy version, the Creamy Duo. I opted for the creamy duo as it comes with a matt sculpting medium. Guys I have to say that this product is incredible. It applies flawlessly and leaves that perfect dewy finish. The matt sculpting medium is so fab and does a great job. Both of the mediums also double as lip glosses, winner! How about a little swatch….?

082Honestly every woman  needs this highlighter in their life, it kicks the ass of every other highlighter  there is. Big statement I know, but  it’s true!

So guys do you have it already, or are you lucky enough to have the Celestial powder version? Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
