A few weeks ago I became a Beauty Product Tester for Product Testing UK and when a little parcel landed on my door step from them, I couldn't wait to open it...
As you can see, what found its way to me was the Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette in Light. Now, I've become very obsessed with contouring in the last few months and I've been trying out different products to make my contouring the best it can be, but I had not yet had the chance to try out this product.
Let's start with the first impressions. Like the name, the packaging is sleek, it's simplistic and a lovely sized palette to carry around in your make up bag. It has a pretty large mirror in the palette which is obviously a great extra for make-up on the go! (It's better than trying to use my phone anyway...)
The contour palettes that I've used before normally only have two things; contour powder and highlighter. Therefore, I was pretty happy when I saw that there was also a blush in there, but not just any blush, a beautiful blush! As you can see from the photos, it's a pink shade with a shimmery gold running through it. It's a gorgeous colour on the skin with the shimmery gold giving your cheeks a healthy glow. The other two colours in the palette are pretty perfect also. The matte contour powder is a great colour for paler skin tones and the highlighter also has a little shimmer in it and illuminates your cheekbones.
The blusher, contour powder and highlighter all have a nice, soft texture. They feel lovely when applied to the skin, the highlighter being the nicest of them all. Due to the soft texture, they are all really blendable and very easy to work with to create your desired look. The pigmentation was a worry for me, as I have found in some palettes that the colours were a bit weak, especially the highlighter which can sometimes appear non existent. However, in this palette all three are really pigmented and you only need a small amount on the brush, just a little sweep across the cheek and you're ready to go.
As you can see from this review, I have nothing bad to say about this product. I just wish I picked it up before! It would have made me fall in love with contouring so much sooner. At only £10.00 this is a perfect little palette and a total bargain. If you're looking to experiment with contouring or are a bit of newbie this is a great palette to try. Three gorgeous pigmented shades which are easy to blend, you'll look like Kim K in no time.
Have you tried this palette before?
