Renowned makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin left behind quite a legacy of products, tips, tricks, books, and endless stories. But there's even more, if you can imagine. His protégé, Troy Surratt, has also created a line of makeup that launched exclusively at Barneys New York in October called Surratt — and it's definitely worth checking out.
After playing with a few products in the line, I'm completely smitten with a shimmery brownish-rose Lipslique called Hevyn ($34), sweetly named for his late mentor. It's no surprise to me that it's the brand's bestselling shade. It glides on smoothly, and the shine approaches a gloss-like finish without any of the stickiness. And we can expect more great things from Surratt, as he's working on some fabulous eyeliner and brush launches that he plans to share with our British friends across the pond at Liberty of London.
