The Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Highlighter & Neo Limelight

Kevyn Aucoin’s new Neo-Lights Collection features two versatile highlighting palettes, both consisting of a gradiant trio of shades. The Neo Highlighter in Sahara* features warm tones for a sun-kissed radiance, and The Neo Limelight* contains iridescent hues for an ethereal glow. Finely-milled, light-diffusing pigments offers the complexion an unequivocal refined radiance that screams healthy, glowing skin.

Neo-Highlighter in Sahara*

This all-in-one pallete features three of Kevyn Aucoin’s best-selling highlighters, Candlelight, Starlight and Sunlight, melded together into one. Warm hues of champagne, soft rose and golden bronze may be used individually to highlight and define the face, or together for an all-over warm radiance. I enjoy using the shades individually to sculpt and highlight the eyes and cheeks for a monochromatic golden glow. The bronze shade (Sunlight) is deep enough to work as a bronzer on my lighter skin tone.

Neo Limelight in Ibiza

The iridescent trio of shades in the Ibiza palette gives me unicorn vibes, ranging from a pale, white gold and merging into a light lavender. This rainbow of colors creates an otherworldly fairytale glow that brightens the face. It offers a serious #strobing effect to the cheekbones and contains enough variation for a complete eye look.

The Neo-Powder Brush

A brush designed exclusively for the Neo powders features a dual-fiber design. Its top layer allows for a sheer wash of color (great for highlighting) and its dense bottom layer offers more intense color payoff (great for bronzing). Its slanted tip hugs the contours of the face.

Note: I will be updating this post with a look to show how beautifully these powders look on the skin. In the meantime I uploaded a short (terrible quality) video from Instagram Stories of me wearing the Neo-Highlighter in Sahara.
