Wishlist item: Kevyn Aucoin Neo Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo Bronzer is a just-launched item that has a blush, bronzer and highlighter in one continuous palette.  I’m loving the transition from bronzer to blush to highlight because you can choose the depth of colour you want depending on your skin tone.  This would be perfect to take on vacation with you when […]
