I have come to use these little Sensual Lip Satins from Kevyn Aucoin nearly as dependably as some of my great, very favorite lip balms. They wear so darn well, it’s like wearing something between a really good lip balm and a light, non-sticky gloss with the perfect amount of color. If you suffer with dry lips and sometimes feel that you need to forgo lipstick due to state of your lips, this product could be your saving grace. It goes onto lips super smooth and dries to a well-set, gorgeous, semi-matte velvety finish, and never bleeds or runs. Add the fact that the color clings on nearly all day, without feeling like you have anything but a very good dose of moisture on your lips, and it’s just about the perfect natural look lip color solution. I can’t say enough good things about this formula, and it’s for certain one of a kind, and a beautiful little lip partner.
The formula comes in six shades, but I favor the two more natural pink looking ones, Faconne and Cashmere (shown in swatch above). These are total gems, and I always keep one in my bag, because I know if I do, I’m always covered.
