I think that Smashbox always makes some of the best contouring and highlighting products because they know what they are doing. There is never any warmth or any sparkle in their contours and the bronzer is a really nice warm tone without those horrible overly red tones that are sometimes common in bronzers, and with the highlighter there’s nothing to say other than, beautiful. All of these shades are beautifully blendable you can build up the coverage or go sheer just by the different ways you apply if you were to use a damp sponge like a like a beauty blender, you’d get a more diffused soft look or if you just used a brush or your fingers you would get a more defined angular look. It’s all about how you apply the product to yourself.
The staying power of these products is impressive once they are applied they seem to set so once its on your face its staying there, this would a fantastic idea for those of you who find that your makeup doesn’t stay and ends up gone by lunch.
If you want these to say a little longer you could even try layering with a contour powder that way you get intensity but you are setting this product as you’re using a powder on top. You just need to make sure to blend well.
When I first saw this I thought you bought either the contour, highlighter or bronzer individually, but to find out it was a trio set was amazing because I don’t think ive seen anything this good of quality before as yes, you do get contour and highlighter sticks but I find them to all be a bit too red toned to use. Personally i love the idea of a crayon/pencil type product that lets you be as precise as you want to be there’s no messing around dipping into pots or pans you just literally draw it onto your face, blend and you’re done.
You can find the Smashbox Step By Step Contour Stick Trio online at Smashbox.co.uk, boots.co.uk and on Smashbox counters nationwide. The Smashbox Step By Step Contour Stick Trio costs £35 which all in all is a great deal think about what you’re getting 3 pencils with a fantastic colour and shade, longevity and simplicity the idea is just fantastic
I thought i would just add a video from Smashbox that shows you how to use these products incase anyone wanted to know.
