Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

I had been struggling for a while to find a new product that would sit on my now very oily skin, having previously used BareMinerals. 
I discovered this product one a night out with the girls, whilst we were getting ready I noticed that one of my friends, Jordan, had amazing flawless skin so I had to know what she was wearing. She explained that she had discovered it in Australia and that it can only be purchased from the web within the UK! So I was instantly put off I mean who wants to buy makeup that they may not match up with! 
I soon changed my mind after doing a little bit of research and admiring my friends skin all night, which by the way stayed flawless! 
So I purchased my first pot back in May this year, and have used it religiously ever day since. 



Here is a little bit about the product taken from Beautybay.com.

Right so this tiny little pot retails for about £33.50-£38.00. Now i know what you're thinking OMG that's a lot of money for that tiddly arse little pot! Well let me tell you, IT IS more that worth it. 
As I said at the start I have had my first pot since May and have only just (Aug) decided to buy another pot purely because I felt I needed a darker shade for the summer months. 
(Had been walking round tanned with a white face =O hence me getting a darker shade, anyway).
Here is a picture of my existing pot (3 months everyday, sometimes twice a day use for full coverage) and my now brand new one. 
As you can see it has hardly made a dent! My verdict on the price, who cares if it's going to last you a year or more!
You only need a tiny amount for full coverage, about half the size of your small fingernail, if that. Also my friend showed me her empty pot and guess what it went right down to the bottom!
I love this product it provides such great coverage and not only that but since I have started using this I have noticed I don't get hardly any new pimples... This product kind of sits on your skin as opposed to sinking in.
The only downside is that it can take you a couple of try's with different methods of how to apply it, in order to find the right one that suits you.  
I have found that the best method for myself is to apply moisturiser and then dab the foundation on your face using a brush and then blend it in with your fingertips ensuring they are warm and clean prior to blending. I have found that using a foundation brush just leaves paint strokes and that a beauty blender just doesn't provide enough coverage. 
I go over any problem areas with my finger tips, dabbing on the foundation/ concealer and then blend it in again by dabbing.
