Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit (Medium)- Review

A highlighter and pressed powder kit, which can be used to help sculpt and define one’s features. This product contains two powders.

The darker powder is used to create shadows on the face, such as defining the jaw line or contouring the cheekbones. The lighter powder is the highlighter, used to reflect light off the face and can be placed in various places such as the apple of the cheeks, the temple, the tip of the nose etc. 14g

I am no genius when it comes to contouring , and to be honest i wasn't in to it until i started blogging and taking 1000 pictures of me , or watched kandee Johnson's videos (which btw is an awsome guru)  , so i started looking for some products which can be used for contouring . I used to think that i can pretty much use any bronzer for contour , but i was wrong. I got to know with time that Matt contour powder is a way to go. I was bought my E.L.F Warm Bronzer only for this reason , but when i bought MAC studio fix powder plus foundation on NW45 , thats when i got hang of whole contouring thing.  

I got Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in medium almost a month ago . I used it in my face of the post [here] I couldn't be more happier. It made my life so much easier. It comes with a brown powder for  contour (matte)  and then the highlight (fine shimmer).

Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit  comes in 3 shades for different skintones 
  • Light, 
  • Medium 
  • and Dark 
I am Mac N35 , and the contour powder works well for my skin tone, but if you are scared of over doing it , and a new to makeup , i will suggest you to start with the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in light. I am naturally tanned,and have bit of dusky complexion so i stay away from red based powders .The brown is a matte in the kit , and leans towards warm and no signs of reds into it. The powder in contour kit has a nice texture doesn't feel powdery. It blends easily. 
Now the highlighter side. It's a very smooth, creamy and it looks so beautiful when applied its a peach beige powder with light gold fine shimmers.

I quite like the whole Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit . It comes with guide in the set,Which explains that how to use which powder where. In my opinion you dont to need to contour on daily bases. I only do it when i have some wedding ,party to attend. ALWAYS choose a cream or powder that is just 2 shades darker than your skin- any darker, and it looks unnatural. If you dont know where to apply contour powder , suck your cheeks in and look in the mirror for the best places to apply it.If you find that you’ve done too much contouring, counter it by applying more neutral foundation or powder over the top and then add color to tone it down. Do this shaping before you begin applying color. One thing you should always remember is to blend thoroughly.
