It is amazing! ... It covers ANYTHING. It does require a skilled Makeup Pro to use. It has a thick, creamy texture that has to be worked with. Once you experience it, it will become a staple to your kit.
This foundation is on Steroids.
This is a cream based, full coverage foundation. This product comes in a rather small little jar, but do not let that fool you. This foundation is the most pigmented formulation that I have ever worked with. The only thing I can liken it to is Illamasqua's Rich Liquid Foundation. This, in my opinion, is modernized pancake makeup.
A little goes a long way with this product. I really like using it as a concealer and/or highlighter. It has an interesting sheen to it when finished. The finish is not matte, satin, or natural(dewey.) It is slightly illuminating yet flat(That sounds strange, but it's true). I have done a full face application with this product, and it's not something I would recommend using unless you have some pretty significant skin issues. It makes for a great stage makeup application, but getting this foundation to look less thick and cumbersome is work.
I have cut this foundation down with thinner, and it's much easier to work with, but even then, when I am on set, I have a very small window of time, and this product simply isn't something I have time to futz around with.
If you do want to use this foundation for a full face application, make sure the skin is prepped with a good moisturizer and a silicone based primer. It has a sticky texture to it, and once you place it on the skin, you have to start blending quickly. Forget about using this foundation on someone with dry skin because it will most definitely settle into fine lines and pores. In other words, it's not particularly HD friendly.
So why do I like this product? It covers everything. I like to stipple it into areas that need a bit more coverage. It also makes for a great highlighter and contour cream. I own every shade of this foundation, and if you want a very dramatic, highly contoured face, this product will do the trick.
I was on a hunt for foundation to cover a skin burning. Walking around, this lady asked me if I wanted to try Aucoin. I said sure why not. Good thing I did. I been using this product for over two years now. I love how it easy to cover anything. Makes my skin look airbrushed. I even have an airbrush system that does nothing compared to this makeup. Sensual skin enhancer is probably one of my favorite foundation out there. Its so amazing.
