Hello gorgeous readers! Kevyn Aucoin Beauty has recently launched a Limited Edition, The Making Faces Beauty Book, a three chapter palette influenced by Kevyn's beauty book (in print form) of the same name, Making Faces, an iconic makeup book designed with the artist's signature looks, techniques, quotes and inspiration drawn from glamorous women in the entertainment, fashion and beauty industry. Also, the new palette includes a tutorial card to recreate the iconic Biba -- pictured above -- inspired by the romantic gypsy and silent screen star. Now anyone can transform themselves into Biba's far and away dreaminess of the innocent. Making Faces palette is estimated at a value of $250 and retails for $75 at Kevyn Aucoin online and Sephora. Be sure to purchase one before they sell out. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

Chapter 2: Blush & Define
The Pure Powder Glow in Dolline, Shadore, Eyeshadow is Black, Dark Brown, Navy, Cream

Chapter 3: EmphasEYES 

Pink, Bronze, Clay, Taupe, Peach, Amethyst, Blue Steel: 
colors are more richly pigmented in person, my camera flash turned wonky

Formula: The eye shadows are richly pigmented, silky, blendable, semi-sheer, yet buildable and long lasting --  eye primer will prolong wear time. Also, with the exception of scattered dusting,  I did not experience major fallout during application. Additionally, the blush and contour powders have the same professional quality. I must admit that Chapter 1 Contour + Sculpt is my absolute favorite one of the set. The powders are weightless, natural looking and Candlelight highlighter adds an ethereal finish to any makeup look you create -- plus all of the powders in book 1 double as neutral eye-shadows! The blush in Chapter 2 appeared dark for my usual blush taste, however, it came up as a sheer rosy tint on my skin, which can be deepened if one wants a more dramatic look. Chapter 3 has various formula type shadows, such as, matte, satin and one in a shimmery hue --  blue sand. As for the palette's construction; it is sturdy and convenient. All three books are removable to act as single palettes that wrap around in one outer magnetic "book case" so all 3 books are held together magnetically when placed together. In addition, each palette has a clear mirror and a mini-tutorial guide with makeup artistry tips. The bonus "Biba" Tutorial is a separate card that opens up in 3 sections with instructions on creating Kevyn Aucoin's iconic Biba look. All items are packed inside an adorable collectors box -- see above images for more details. To wrap things up, while Making Faces Beauty Book is on the higher-end of the price spectrum, it contains professional grade pigments, and a variety of essential products that will help you achieve a plethora of eye & face looks -- with the added convenience of being travel friendly. Simply throw any single palette into your purse without toting around the entire collection. If you do not own any designer palette sets, you may want to consider investing in Kevyn Aucoin's Making Faces because it's gorgeous!

Making Faces Beauty Book sold separately at Sephora $21.99
