Sleek Contour Kit Review

Sleek Contour Kit Review
Sleek Contour Kit Review
After lusting over this product for what seems like a very long time I finally decided to order the Sleek contour kit and see if it lives up to its expectations. Not many places have this compact in the lightest shade so I ordered mine off Amazon and luckily they had it! and within a couple of days it arrived in good condition.

I always found Sleek packaging very appealing and useful with the mirrors in the compacts so I was really glad this one had it too. I was a little unsure how to use this product at first so I did some research (as you do!) and watched a couple of Youtube videos demonstrating how to apply the product. I was stunned just off the videos I watched how amazing the definition comes out on your face with this.

The next day I started using this product in my everyday make-up routine. I have been loving the highlight more than the contour but that is because I have more control with highlighting than contour.
I just dab a tiny amount of the contour (left) on the back of my contour brush then from the outer part of my cheekbones just above those I apply this going all the way towards my lips near enough. Even for the lightest shade this is still really pigmented and can easily make me look orange so definitely use a tiny amount. I was really impressed with the results already it looked very natural and shaped my face. Not too noticeable but enough to see I have definition and framed my face a lot more. Why have I only just got this product now!?

I then go onto highlight (right) where I just highlight my nose, above the cheekbones, sometimes eyebrow bone and sometimes the section between nose and lip. It really all depends on yourself and where you want to highlight your face. The highlight goes on really nice and blends in quite nicely too. I definitely like how this has made my nose look more healthy and noticeable. Its really long lasting as well. 

I am still practicing contouring my cheekbones as I am not the greatest or I am not very confident in myself. But I have been liking applying tiny amounts of this to notice just a little. The highlighter I absolutely love! it just makes my face look so healthy and glowy. 

Pros:
Long lasting
Definitely creates definition
Healthy, natural, glowing
easy to apply
Appealing packaging

Cons:
Difficult to find light shade
Extremely pigmented


Overall this product is amazing it just gives the most amazing definition and shapes your face really well. My face looked very 2D without this now I can tell why everyone loves contouring.

Have you tried Sleek contour kit?
