I dont know if its just me but i always have a hard time of finding a good contour kit in lower end drugstore makeup either they are far too red and can be used as bronzers or they have shimmer in them. Usually 9/10 times the contour powder is to warm instead of being a cool tone but with the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit they have hit the nail on the head perfectly.
The Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit comes in 3 different shades- Light, Medium and Dark the above is Light which works best on those with NC/NW15-30 or Illamasqua SB03-SB09. When you first look at this duo you will see a matte block brown tone which is absolutely perfect for contouring as its really neutral. The Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit is one of my favourites for contouring, it reminds me of MAC Harmony although Harmony is a little cooler it’s still a great choice for half the price. Next to the contour you have a warm toned pink based highlighter that gives off a gorgeous sheen when buffed into the skin. Pigmentation wise it’s pretty impressive you can either do a light contour or go for a really defined angular contour.
I wouldn’t say there anything spectacular about the wear time about this product you tend to get a good 5/6 hours out of this product which i think is pretty normal although that depends on your skin type. If you have oily skin i think this would last a little less due to oils breaking down the product but you could try setting this with a makeup setting spray and that will extend the wear of the makeup or applying a cream base then blending this over the top of it.The best brush to use with the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit would either be something like the MAC 109, Real Techniques Contour Brush or the Illamasqua Highlighter Brush. I also like using the Illamasqua Contour Brush but it’s all preference really. If you’re wanting a softer contour use a fluffier brush if you’re wanting a harsher contour use something like the NARS Artisan Brush No 21 which has a lot more density to it
As with all Sleek Makeup products the packaging is true to the name, “Sleek” the product is protected in a matte black hard duo palette, it’s really hard wearing it also contains a mirror so you can apply on the go or for touch ups with your makeup
