Sleek Contour Kit | Review

Sleek Contour Kit in Medium

Along with the Sleek Blusher I previously bought, I felt I needed to check out the Sleek contour kit. Being on a budget, this product felt like a really great option, providing both a contour and a highlight.

Much like the blusher, the packaging is also very classy and simple, much like Sleek’s products itself. Also, despite holding two products, the packaging isn’t at all bulky or too big, which can often be a major put-off. As a beginner who has never tried contouring before, this ‘kit’ honestly made it much easier, especially with the little paper guide they include with the product.

Once again, you do need a light hand when applying this, especially with the darker shade, but once you get the hang of it you get a brilliant result. It is easy to blend and you can build it up to as dark as you like. It is a lovely matte colour too that gives you a ‘natural’ contoured look whilst the highlighter adds a little shimmer to the top of your cheekbones for more definition and compliments the darker shade really well.

For me, this nearly lasted all day as it did begin to fade towards the evening, but I was still very pleased with it. As it faded towards a more subtle look, I for some reason felt more at ease when wearing it (I had a fear it would be too dark and Kardashian-esque like but it was surprisingly very natural looking.)

The highlight is even more beautiful, leaving a shimmery finish that you can build up as much as you like. You can also apply this anywhere for more of a glowing look, as advised by the handy leaflet that came iwth it.

For a beginner at contouring, I think this kit is perfect. With both shades complimenting each other well, and the easily blendable product, I would recommend this, but if you feel a bit too scared at first I would probably think twice as it is very pigmented and therfore not as forgiving if you go a bit over the top!

It also goes really well on its own or with a bit of Sleek’s blush for a little more colour, which I reviewed here.


Until next time
