FOTD with Kevyn Aucoin Aquarouge

I tried Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Lipstick in Aquarouge today for the first time. Normally, I'd save writing about it until a proper review but I really wanted to share the pictures of how the overall look turned out. I was pleased with it, admittedly it's probably quite Autumnal but I love that sort of look. My first impressions of the Liquid lipstick are good too, it has a doe foot applicator and applies well. It's not like a lipgloss where you can apply in one go, you do need apply in sections in a similar way to lipstick.

The texture is somewhere between the Laura Mercier Lip Velvet and Ellis Faas Milky Lips. In fact, I have similar shades in both of these so I can do a swatch comparison. It lasts very well too, even through eating, though I found it did fade out in a slight ring-of-doom fashion.

Anyway, on to the face...

Disclosure: Kevyn Aucoin items were sent without cost for review purposes. LMdB and Max Factor items were also PR samples, I pick them to use often as they really are favourites. 


  1. is this from the new range? In NYC they told me, they want to relounge the whole range in the near future.

  2. WOW! Fierce color. I like the creamy, shiny texture too. This goes on my wishlist.
    Looking forward to the comparisons

  3. Hi Holger! Yes, I believe it is the new range. I had a little look at the website and it looks like the liquid lipstick previously had a brush applicator. The colour and wear is very impressive.

    Hey Y! I love the colour too and it feels very comfy to wear.

  4. wow, this looks phenomenal on you. love it! i would loove to try Kevin Aucoin... sadly it's not available where i live.

  5. I love this look Jane. You pull the whole thing together really well! I'm loving reds at the moment - Illamasqua Box is getting a real workout! ;)

  6. It's sooo pretty and it looks fantastic on you!

  7. This colour looks really beautiful on you! x

  8. You really do suit a striking lip colour, this looks amazing on you. That last photo is a peach! x

  9. The look is fantastic on you Jane; bold lipcolour suits you very well!
    I love K.A. and stocked up on quite a few essentials on my last trip to NY, as I was convinced it was not to be found in the UK -duh...

  10. It looks beautiful on you; in fact, for some reason, it makes your eye color pop even more.

  11. It looks so good on you, you really do put looks together so well, you now have me wondering if I could get away with such a rich colour.
    As I like to keep you up to date on my acquisitions, I picked up some of the BB Tortoiseshell collection today and there was also quite a good GWP on at YSl where you get a full sized pink highlighter for free (powder version)if you bought two products, I've not tried it yet but thought it worth mentioning, this was in John lewis, have a lovely weekend x

  12. I love your entire FOTD, but that lip color is stunning.

  13. that looks amazing on you. What a gorgeous color!

  14. @ketoglutarat: I’m not sure if this is good or bad news for you but Mise Beauty that stock KA ship internationally including Germany….

    @dempss01: Thank you! I’m glad you are enjoying Box. I was unsure how I would get on with liquid lipstick but I love this.

    @Jennifer Leigh: Thank you!

    @Marina: Thank you Marina, it felt very nice to wear too which is such a bonus.

    @ihavemostlybeen: Glad you like the last one! I don’t quite know how I managed it but it really amused me.

    @Nina: A few people have mentioned that they didn’t know it was available in the UK. I’m glad that the post is useful in that way. I’m on the hunt for K.A. books as we speak as they have been highly recommended.

    @Ammie: Thank you, I wonder if it’s the contrast or the colour that creates that effect?

    @Replica: Although I do like my MLBB colours it’s nice to wear something darker every now and again. I love the texture of this too. The YSL GWP sounds good, I wanted to go out shopping this weekend but haven’t had chance. I’ve had my head in the sand again as I hadn’t realised the BB collection was out already. Thanks for letting me know!

    @Zuzu’s Petals: I’m not always confident in darker colours but this was a pleasure to wear.

    @luv2smilexo: Thank you x

    Thanks for your comments,
    Jane x

  15. Ooooh! SUCH a gorgeous colour and I love how it's in between a stain and a gloss! Perfection!
