As usual, my very regular trip to Tesco ended up with discovering yet another awesome cosmetic purchase. I was so excited to see one of Maybellines newly released Master Sculpt contouring kit for only £1.99(?!?!). I'm not sure why it was reduced, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it and it's a new release. Anyway, I'm not complaining!
This kit is in the shade light, and it is by far too light for my skin tone. Anyway this isn't too much bother for me as 1. I've been using the contouring powder on my lids to darken them up (as they get very white after all my concealing... damn redness!) and 2. I've been preferring to "strobe" my face, which is a form of contouring using highlighter only.
The packaging on this product is quite smart, I do like the square glossy black casing. It's also really clever as underneath the powder there is another layer, which includes a little mirror and a small round brush. The brush is very soft and a really good shape for getting into the contour area of your cheeks and along your nose.
The powders are really great. I wasn't expecting them to be so silky and smooth but they are stunning and so easy to work with. The highlighter powder is really easily flaked off, and makes a bit of a mess, so you need quite a light hand when getting the product onto your brush.
Both powders are very blendable and look very natural. I am actually really impressed with the highlight in this kit, it's exactly what I have been looking for, for so long! Package up the highlight and sell seperately, pretty please? :)
I am really impressed with this little kit, I think it's a great affordable contouring kit which is perfect for everyone, beginners and contour lovers alike. I especially can't recommend the highlight enough, I just wish there was more of it in the pan!
