Sleek Face Contour Kit: Review & Contouring Tips

It was about time to post a new make-up product review, since I have been using a lot of new stuff in the last month. The lucky winner today is the Sleek Face Contour Kit, my go-to choice whenever I need to contour and highlight.

I don’t use it on a daily basis (just a dab of highlight during the day at work), but I always include it in my full-face make-up looks (in weekends, for shootings, going out, events, etc.)

I must say it’s my favorite product right now, and it made me want to buy more Sleek make-up. Also, I know Christmas is long gone, but I’ve been wanting to post this review ever since, so I hope you don’t mind the festive little red bows from the pictures πŸ™‚

So this Sleek contour kit contains two products: aΒ matte contour powderΒ and an illuminating highlighter.

ABOUT THEΒ KIT

  • has a smooth and silky texture
  • works best with angled brushes
  • very easy to use and apply, so it’s a perfect choice for any beginner in contouring/ strobing
  • the two colors are very pigmented
  • this kit sculpts your face, makes it look slimmer and a lot more defined
  • you get a very natural and beautifulΒ look

ABOUT THE PACKAGE, PRICE AND ORDER:

  • has a lovely package, that looks very high-quality
  • comes with a mirror incorporated
  • it’s super light and travel friendly
  • although it’s small and compact, it holds a lot of product (14g)
  • it’s available in 3 colors: Light, Medium and Dark (and I own the Light one)
  • has a great price (I got it for 41 RON, so for 9 euros)

I ordered it from www.makeup-shop.ro, but you can also find it on Sleek’s official website.

DOWNSIDES/ THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

  • It normally has a great resistance, so you don’t need to worry, but keep in mind that it’s not water resistant. Any rain, sweat or tears will definitely melt it off very easy
  • As with any other pigmented product, you must apply only the necessary amount of powder, and slowly add more until you’re happy with the results, because otherwise you could get a muddy look
  • The kit doesn’t come with an included brush, so you must use your own

CONTOURING AND HIGHLIGHTING TIPS:

  • apply it on a perfect base (moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, powder) for the best results
  • contour tracing the letter E (on the hollows of your cheeks, forehead and jawline); also, contour the edges of your nose for a slimmer appearance
  • highlight tracing the letter C (on top of the cheekbones and right above the eyebrows); then highlight on the bridge of the nose, eyebrow bone, inner corner of the eye, cupid’s bow and center of the chin
  • apply blush right between the contour and highlight
  • use a medium sized fluffy angled brush for the contour powder, and a smaller one for highlight

And below you can see a small preview of how the highlighterΒ looks like on my face. I couldn’t find a decent photo to show you the contour part, but I’ll work on that πŸ™‚
