The Beauty Bug had the opportunity to speak with Marianne Gottas, national trainer for Kevyn Aucoin Beauty. Marianne filled her in on the lastest Spring trends and what new products the brand is releasing next month.

“For Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, Spring is all about matte colors. We are incorporating a lot of new colors into our existing lines and adding a few new products as well. We are expanding our line of famous Eye Pencil Primatifs  - which now come in basic black and basic brown. For the Spring, we will introduce 4 new colors – a navy, a blackish green, a blackish  purple and a different shade of brown. They are gorgeous. The formula will still be the same pure kohl formula that glides on effortlessly and our pencils are so soft, that you can even apply on your hand first and use a brush for more control.


We’re also introducing six new shades of our Matte Lip Color.  It’s an amazing 8-hour wear lipstick that NEVER dries out – not even when you leave the cap off.  Also launching, and this is going to be a first for us, is a lip balm/moisturizer/primer  called The Sensual Lip Balm (available for pre-order here) made primarily with Japanese rice extracts which promote moisture in the lip. Apply any textured lip (gloss, lipstick, etc.) over it.


New for skin, keeping with the matte trend, we’ll have a new powder foundation – six new beautiful shades that come with a double sided sponge. One side will give you more sheer coverage, while the other side will give you complete, full coverage. It’s all about the texture of the magical sponge.

Finally, our first nail polish. Kevyn’s favorite lipstick was Blood Roses, hence the burgundy packaging. It’s his favorite color. We’ve never had nail polish before, but will release this one color since we know how much he loved it.”
