Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Shadow Duo #206

Kevyn Aucoin eye shadow duos were released some time last year (or was it earlier this year?) as the brand started revamping and reinventing its product line. They've added a few more colors since the launch which I have yet to check out, but my first Kevyn Aucoin duo was #206, a classic combination of shimmery navy and a taupy beige. Both are basic and wearable colors, and I probably would have been much more excited about them if I didn't already have eleventy seven similar colors, including this Laura Mercier duo in Mystere.

The texture of these eye shadows is soft and easy to work with; there's minimal fallout and the finish is beautiful and shimmery. The swatches above were done over bare skin with no primer, yet you can see that it sits nicely with good color payoff. I put the duo in my makeup bag because it's a perfect size for travel and these are the kind of colors I wear all the time. I do wish for some more inspired colors, but for a basic color wardrobe this will do.

Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Shadow Duo #206  ($42) is available at the counters, and


  1. these colors look great together (: it would make a really pretty smokey eye

  2. There's some quite unusual combos in this range - a grey green with reddish brown (very autumnal) was calling out to me in particular!

  3. I've been eyeing #204, for that neo-metallic trend that looks light-as-silk on the skin thanks to the updated textures, instead of the heavy frosts of yore.
