The Pure Powder Glow

Looks Can Be Deceiving

I own all of Kevyn's Pure Powder Glow shades and this particular one is my favorite. Don't let the intensity of this color freak you out. Upon initial viewing, my first thought was that this blush looked like it was caught in a 1980's time warp when wearing florescent everything was all the rage(Yes, I am that old.) When I applied it, I was quite surprised at how soft this color was.

Kevyn's blushes are a lot like NARS blushes in the respect that the pigment ratio is quite high and they layer beautifully; however, some of NARS blush shades are not as easy to work with simply due to that intense pigment ratio(Exhibit A., Seduction, Crazed). I have not found this to be the case with any of Kevyn's blushes. They are soft, silky and they just glide onto the skin in the most beautiful way. Are his blushes worth the $$? Oh yeah. Try one out and you'll see the magic for yourself. :)

Ariana is slightly pinker than it appears

For weeks I was lusting after this blush in the new color "Ariana". It appeared to be such a vibrant, glowing peach color online. In fact, it looked like my skin tone, but luminous. I needed that color on my cheeks! I bit the bullet and ordered it, not really knowing what to expect--I wasn't sure if the color would even show up on me. When I opened the compact, the color Ariana was pinker than I expected. It still has warm peach tones, but it definitely adds a rosy flush to the cheeks, like an authentic sunburn. I am impressed with how realistic and natural it looks! Also, the value is slightly darker than I expected, which is good because it does show up on light-medium complexions. It should be noted the blush doesn't come with an application brush, as stated online. All in all, the formula is exceptional (silky, not drying), and the color is beautiful (soft, authentic peachy-pink)'s a home run!

Blush glow powder is smooth as silk. Very pigmented. Only need a very small amount. Goes on so smooth and besutiful. Stays on forever also. Will definately buy other colors. I love his makeup.

This powder blush feels like a cream when you brush it onto your face, it's smooth, creamy and velvety. The color is simply to die for, when I put this color on in combination with my bronzer, it makes me look like I just came back from a summer vacation on the island of Santorini! This blush has become a staple in my makeup bag, along with Kevyn Aucoin's Candlelight and Sculpting powder! Fira is very pigmented, it's also warmer and less powdery than Nars Exhibit A, and Mac's Frankly Scarlett.

Gorgeous shade....

These blushes are silky smooth and this color is more of a pink nude with a hint of plum. Reminds me of "exposed'' by Tarte, only this has a far better formula. Worth the money!!

It's a bubble pink blush and the texture is soft, incredibly finely-milled with a silky feel that applies smoothly, evenly, and blend like a dream with excellent color payoff. The finish has a luminous sheen when it gets blended and worked into the skin. It didn't emphasize pores, and it really did give off a "pure powder glow". This wore well for almost nine hours.

Ariana is the perfect peachy/pink colour with a slight shimmer. The packaging is very sleek and compact - perfect for your travel bag!

Fantastic to sweep on top of your bronzer for a nice contoured-look.

Two thumbs up :)

This adds the perfect pop of color

Even for a girl who enjoys a natural look, Myracle is a great shade. It looks so vibrant but glides on so smoothly and adds the perfect pop of cheek color.

Soft and Glowing

Beautiful formula and shade. Gives a"fresh from the cold" look to my fair skin! It is a tiny bit powdery, but it blends so nicely in to the skin, almost like it melts in.

So Pretty!

Love this shade! Silky smooth formula! The color is more pink with a hint of peach...something like Mac ''Melba." I only wish there was more color variation but honestly great product!
