Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder (Candlelight) – Review


I remember when I first swatched this product in Space NK and I literally thought to myself *aghhhhh I NEED this in my life*, the price tag of £35 put me off for sure, it is a tiny product, nonetheless it looked so good that I took the plunge and purchased it.

Celestial Powder comes in a few colour options, I chose “Candlelight” as it is a beautiful champagne colour that will suit all skin tones. Celestial Powder is described as a highlighter but I really think of it as a complexion enhancer. It doesn’t contain any visible shimmer or glitter, but has light reflecting pearl particles that gives the skin that candlelight, lit-from-within glow. It is truly a beautiful product that blends seamlessly and doesn’t look obvious on the skin but so very natural and pretty. I like the fact that there is no shimmer in this product making it suitable for the daytime and night.


The packaging is super fancy and it even comes in its own little velvet pouch. The compact is only 0.11oz so it is a product that I save for special occasions only, it also has a mirror in the top making it good for touching up. I wish there was a little brush provided in the compact however. It is difficult to capture this swatch on camera but hopefully you can see what a nice finish it gives the skin.


Celestial Powder has slowly become my favourite higlight overtaking theBalms Mary-Lou Manizer. Here are some pictures of me wearing this with my full make-up look, dusted on the high points of my cheek and down the centre of my nose.

  1. I love highlighters that are subtle – it’s a GOOD thing when you can’t see it glaringly clear in a photo! It looks absolutely amazing on you – such a gorgeous glow! 🙂
