Sleek face contour kit | Review

sleek-face-contour-kit-review
After reading many reviews about this Sleek face contour kit I knew that I had to add this to my wishlist for Christmas. I have always been in awe at how celebrities and fellow beauty bloggers contour their faces so well which leaves their skin looking flawless and their faces thinner. I must admit that I had never even used a highlighter before, (*hides in shame*) so I was very happy when I received this for Christmas! This is also my first product that I have tried from Sleek and I must say that I am very impressed!

Admittedly i wasn't too sure how to use the highlighter in the kit so i watched a few YouTube videos which were really helpful and TheVintageVision's was my favourite to watch and she made it look super easy and i think i might have nearly mastered the art of contouring!

The products are both powder formula and are quite pigmented. I picked the contour kit in the shade light but it comes in 3 shades that you can choose from. The kit is a great size which means its easy to take away with you and the mirror is an added bonus if you're on the go a lot! When using the kit i first apply the bronzer with a contouring brush into the hollows of my cheek bones, i apply in to the sides of my temples, underneath my jawline and on either side of my nose, despite being the shade light the bronzer is quite dark and you don't need to apply much or else it ends up looking quite dirty. I then applied the highlighter with my fingers down the middle of my nose,my cupids bow and at the highest part of my cheek bones, i still need to work on the art of that bit though, i also applied it underneath my eyebrows to highlight the arch of them. Everyone knows Kim Kardashian is th babe of contouring and always looks amazing and the picture below is one that i found of her and also shows and explains contouring a bit better!

I still cant believe how adding a highlighter to my makeup routine has dramatically changed the way my face looks! My skin looks much more flawless,dewy and makes my face look suitably sculpted! Overall i am SO impressed with this kit and would recommend it to anyone, even if you are a makeup newbie like me haha! At only £6.49 you cant go wrong as individual highlighters and bronzers cost a lot more separately.

What do you think of this product? Have you tried this before? Do you like highlighters and contouring?

  9. I haven't had a good time with sleek, I tend to stick with Nars for my contour colour and MAC for highlights, but perhaps I should give this a whirl, a little worried it will be too dark.Cornelia - Ineffable Beauty

    1. Oh no thats shame, i havent tried any of their other products! I would love Nars but cant bare to spend so much! It is only dark if you apply a lot to the brush, i usually blow some of the powder off before and lightly apply it! xx
