I really love a good Kim Kardashian inspired contoured look when it comes to doing my makeup so I have been searching for the perfect matte bronzer for a while now. I have tried a few different brands in the past couple of years but they either seemed too shimmery, too orange or they would have a dull dirty brown tone to them. I was going to get the Nars laguna bronzer but then i spotted the sleek contour kit in shade 'light' in my local superdrug which i have heard so much about. I am usually really picky when it comes to makeup brands, however i bought the Sleek storm eye shadow palette last year and i was really impressed so i decided to give this contour and blush palette a try to see how i get on with it. I have seen quite a few reviews for the sleek bronzer and highlighter kit but not many for the contour and blush palette so i thought i would make a review to share with you my thoughts for this product.
The contour kit includes a matte bronzer which is the perfect shade for me, a light golden highlighter and a beautiful golden rose blush. First of all, i love the packaging of this product, it is the perfect size to pop in to my makeup bag and it also has a mirror inside too.
I have been using this set for just over a week now and i already know i will be repurchasing it once i have ran out. I love how it gives you a natural finish whilst creating definition. It includes very pigmented shades so you don't need to use too much product and they are really easy to blend and build up. I apply the bronzer just below my cheekbones and then add a small amount of the highlighter to my cheek bones with my Real Techniques contour brush (above) to make them stand out. The highlighter is shimmery so it is perfect to wear on a night out or when you want a slightly more dramatic look. I don't ever wear blush but the blush in this palette isn't too red toned, it is more of a gold toned peachy rose shade so it so it looks beautiful with the bronzer and highlighter and i can imagine it looking amazing with a tan.
I am really impressed with this sleek contour and blush palette; it is great quality, amazing price, highly pigmented, easy to work with and overall creates a stunning contoured glowing cheek- perfect. I would really recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new bronzer, highlighter or blush.
