It’s Sunday and that means it’s time to post another awesome beauty bargain that is top notch quality without causing your wallet to spontaneously combust. Last week I posted a Sunday Splurge that cashed in at almost $30 CND, so this time round I thought I go for a product that is under a tenner!
With the whole contouring rage in full force, a lot of brands are pushing the average consumer to purchase full palettes of contouring shades that they will probably never use. A makeup artist no doubt will need that variety, but little old me? I just need a neutral contouring powder and a subtle pearly highlighter.
Enter in Sleek Contour Kits – these bad boys have been around well before the contouring craze of the moment. Cased in an accurately named sleek black compact with decent sized mirror, there is a great balance between a pigmented matte contouring powder and then a pearly highlight that isn’t too frosty or chalky, but rather imparts a really soft glow. The contouring shade is neither too cool, nor too warm. It’s not your orange toned bronzer, but it isn’t an ashy grey colour that only really works in photography either. To fit every skin tone, this palette comes in Light, Medium and Dark – no faffing around with six different shades to choose from, the work is done for you. I prefer my Real Techniques Contour brush for this, which pretty much makes contouring foolproof!
