My Holy Grail Drugstore Contour

When I was searching for a new contour kit, I really wanted to give the Sleek cream contours a try but I thought that I'd stick with powder for now just because my contouring skills aren't exactly brilliant. I love the little duo compact which includes the matte contour powder, a highlighter and also a mirror inside (which is always handy). It's lightweight, simple to open and easy to carry around with you on a day to day basis.

sleek contour powder review

 I chose the shade 'light' because of my insanely pale skin. I have had problems with contour shades before being too dark and my face just looked dirty, mega lol! But this one isn't too light or too dark for my skin tone which is great. The contour powder is very easy to blend in. I use my contour brush from Real Techniques to apply both the contour and highlighter. To blend my contour, I use my Makeup Revolution Pro F105 contour brush. A little goes a long way with this contour powder, my brush picks up a fair amount of product. I can't see myself running out of this anytime soon. I'm not complaining.

The highlighter looks quite pink in the compact but once it's on the skin, it doesn't look pink and it's illuminating. The highlight isn't too much or too shimmery unlike other branded highlighters, so it's great for an everyday natural look as well as looking glam on a night out. Both the contour and highlighter are highly pigmented which is always a good thing, the product lasts all day and it's affordable.  

For just £6.99, buy the Sleek contour kit here.
