Sleek Contour Kit | Light

Wednesday, 9 April 2014









Contouring and highlighting have become a really big trend in the makeup world with everyone trying to recreate Kim Kardashian's signature sculpted look. There are so different products you can use to contour and highlight from cream to powders as well as many different techniques. Sleek Makeup kindly gave me their Contour Kit in the shade light to try out.

The Sleek Contour Kit* £6.49 is a powder duo with a matte bronze shade to contour and a shimmery champagne shade to highlight. The kit comes in a simple slim black compact with a full sized mirror which is perfect for travel. The packaging feels really sturdy and strong and has a higher end feel with the matte finish to it. I really like a matte finish to products although they are notorious for getting really dirty quickly so it will need a constant wipe down to keep it looking clean. It also comes with a really useful leaflet that explains how to use the kit. I think this is a really great idea from Sleek, the instructions are really simple to follow so this is a little added bonus if you're a beginner. 

The matte bronze shade in the kit is good mix of warm and cool tones. The warm tone gives your face a nice glow and the cool tones give you the perfect shadow to sculpt your face. Even though it has a matte formula, it has a buttery soft texture that isn't too powdery. When I apply it to my face, it blends out beautifully with minimal effort. It has just the right amount of pigmentation and even if you apply too much its really easy to blend out. Considering the is lightest shade of contour powder, I still think this would still work really well for medium skin tones too. If you are very pale I would probably recommend using a light hand and then you can build up to your desired intensity.

The highlight shade in the duo is a beautiful shimmery champagne shade with a slight pinky undertone. Its a nice neutral highlight that will suit any pale to medium skin tone. The formula is frosty and has a really pretty sheen to it as the shimmer is so finely milled. This highlight has really great pigmentation too without you looking like a disco ball. This also blends out beautifully on the skin, and the two shades together compliment each other so well.

It safe to say I'm obsessed with this contour kit and I really feel like I've been missing out for not trying it sooner. The powders are so smooth, look so natural on my skin and give me the perfect highlight and contour. Sleek have got all skin tones covered with the contour kit coming in three shades. Even the highlight colour is different in each shade to perfectly compliment the bronzer. I urge my readers to try this out if you haven't already!

The Sleek Contour Kit is available online and in Superdrug stores
