Sleek Face Form Contouring and blush Kit

DSC_3913Who doesn’t love contoured cheekbones? I have a fairly round face, so contouring is a must for me so that my face has some shape and dimension. I personally prefer to work with powder products to achieve the contoured look, as I find that cream products can look a little harsh during the day time.

DSC_3917When it comes to powder contouring palettes, the Sleek Face Form Palette is much loved and raved about by many the beauty lover. The palette comes with a matte contouring powder, highlighter and either a blusher of a bronzer. It is all packaged in a sleek handbag friendly, matte black palette with a decent size mirror.

Sellek Face Form in the shade medium

The Sleek Face Form comes in 4 shades. Fair, Light, medium and dark. Both the light and fair shades come with a contour powder, highlighter and blusher. While the medium and dark shades come with  a contour powder, highlighter and a bronzer. All shades in these palettes are easy to work with and highly pigmented. They apply to the face beautifully and do a fantastic job of sculpting out the cheekbones.

DSC_3923I have both the Fair shade and medium shade palettes. Personally I find the medium shade far too dark for my complexion and I would be inclined to say that unless you have quite tanned skin, I would stay away from the medium or dark palette and   stick to either the light or fair shade. As the medium palette was far too dark for me to trial outside of the house, I am going to focus my review on the Fair palette, as this is the palette I used the most.

It is a a pink toned blusher, that does have quite a bit of shimmer in it. While I like this blusher and have found myself reaching for it over the last few weeks, it wouldn’t be a real favourite of mine, as it is a little too shimmery for my taste. However, I know loads of you would love that, so don’t let my taste in less shimmery blushers turn you off.

IMG_3940The contouring powder in the fair palette, is seriously fantastic. I find it is the perfect colour for naturally sculpting out the cheekbones, without looking muddy on the skin. It gives my skin a real warmth to it and a number of times while wearing this contouring powder, people commented on how well my makeup looked. I mean if that isn’t praise enough for a product.  It lasts well throughout the day and doesn’t end up looking powdery.I also find it isn’t dissimilar to my much loved Inglot HD sculpting powders.  I am all about finding a cheaper alternative to more expensive products!

IMG_3941When it comes to the highlighter, I find it a little too pink toned for my skin. It also applies a little on the powdery side. However, I feel that the highlighter in the Face Form palette does a decent enough job for the price point. To be fair, I think the Mary Lou Manizer from TheBalm has ruined me when it comes to trying other highlighters, as it is just so amazing, it is hard for any other highlighter to compare.

Overall, this is a great little palette. The contouring powder is up there with some of my favourite highend powders and yes, while I wasn’t completely blown away by the highlighter, I think the blusher and contouring powder more than makes up for it. At €12.99 it is hard to pass this up. You can buy it from Cloud10beauty here and have it delivered within 2 days of ordering

    I LOVE the contour in this kit. It’s such a great shade at a pretty bargain price. I’m alright on the highlighter, but would be a bit hesitant on then anyway and really don’t like the blush. It comes out chalky on me and like a poor dupe of my Laura mercier one. I think there’s just a contour version of this that I’ll be picking up the next time but for the price you can’t go wrong.

    Hi there I have purchased the contour pallete in sleek light and fair however they look identical, is that right or has the sticker been placed on the wrong pallette?
