Our favorite cosmetic brand is undoubtedly Kevyn Aucoin. We first fell in love with the mascara, which flakes off rather than smearing off. Then the eye shadows, which has incredible pigmentation. You see where we are going with this?
There aren't many stores that carry the line. Bergdorfs seems to be the Aucoin hub but it can be found in Sephora for the time being. The problem, like most high end brands is the price. Well Aucoin fans, listen up: the headquarters is having a sale where their cosmetics are being sold at a fraction of their retail prices.
For just $10 you can get lipsticks, glosses, eye and brow pencils and eye shadows. Most of these products retail for $24 to $28. The $15 category includes powders, which retail for about $40. In the $20 category you can find eye shadow sets, foundations, lose powder and primer, which range from $42 to $62 in retail outlets. There's also two amazing brush sets the travel set is $50 (regularly $140) and the deluxe is $140 (normally $350).
Just be careful that you go home with the correct product. We have to plan a return trip tomorrow to make adjustments. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last day of the sale and the hours are short. There are no mascaras but if you have the time it's definitely worth the trip.
