Recently new in at the drugstore is a fab little contour kit by Maybelline, the drugstore are really upping their game when it comes to contouring and highlighting! I love a good contour kit and I particularly love how compact, cute and put together this one is. Available in two shades, light-medium and medium-dark, I actually ended up picking up the darker shade out of the two, it seemed more ash toned and I felt that the lighter shade didn't really show up on my skin.
I discovered this little gem whilst on a lunch break back in June, I hadn't heard much about it but knew I had to pick one up to try! The product is divided into two sections, one side is the contouring brown shade and the other is a light highlight shade, then underneath there is a small compartment with a mirror and miniature contouring brush! Both of the shades in this palette are stunning, I find the brown to be absolutely perfect for contouring as it has that cool, ash tone to it, which works really well at creating a natural looking shadow. I find the highlight shade to be just perfect for an everyday glow, without looking too overpowering or glittery, it really is such a pretty colour. In terms of the actual brush that comes with the palette, it's actually really quite good, it distributes the product evenly and you can really sculpt the areas you wish to, as the brush is dense and slim.
I would say this palette is perfect for anyone looking for a general daytime contour kit, something that is compact and easy to use and looks natural once applied. This kit is perfect in that it isn't too dark, too dramatic or too much, so even if you're a beginner I think you'll find this fab. You'll also love how long lasting and creamy the formula is, I can safely say this product stays all day and looks just as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning.
The Maybelline contour palette is available now in drugstores and elsewhere! What's your favourite contour kit?
