Forget the Unicorn Frappuccino at Starbucks—there’s a new secret menu item on the market that we’re obsessing over. Kevyn Aucoin’s custom concealer at the brand’s Bergdorf Goodman counter is the stuff of VIP beauty goals — but it’s not super obvious to the untrained shopper.
The Sensual Skin Enhancer (how good is that name?) already has quite the cult following. In 16 original shades, the cover-all makes a kickass concealer or full coverage foundation when used alone. Mixed with a little moisturizer, it makes for a great sheer skin option (no wonder the Kardashian-Jenner clan are reportedly big fans). Either method will leave you with a Snapchat filter-like glow, IRL.
But the covetable concealer gets even better. At the Bergdorf Goodman counter, you don’t have to settle for choosing the closest match—you can snag an unlisted custom blend of shades for a truly flawless finish.
Here’s how it works: First, a makeup artist selects a few of the pretty pots in your skin tone range and tests a tiny amount of each shade on your skin. With an expert eye, they determine your unique blend, adding a smidge of each shade until they get your custom combo exactly right. They they whip it up right before your eyes on an artist’s palette. Talk about luxe.
If you really want to ball out with this secret menu item, have them mix a flawless foundation shade as well as a slightly lighter shade that you can use as a concealer or super blend-able highlighter.
When they’ve finished, they’ll package up your personal potion and put your unique formula on file, so next time you stop in you can pick up your custom shade without the fuss. Though if you wanted to have a Kevyn Aucoin artist blend it again just to watch the mesmerizing process, we certainly wouldn’t blame you. Watch the whole secret process below.
