Sleek Cream Contour Kit - Light 

When you decide to delve into the world of cream contouring your never as scared as the first moment you apply it to your face and oh my god, was I ever! Today we're having a good ol swatch of the Sleek Make Up Cream Contouring Kit! And my thoughts may just surprise you ..... 


So, I decided to pick this up in the colour range Light purely because Medium looked far too dark for my complexion and underlying skin tones. Now, the colour range for this palette is much lighter than I originally expected if your like me and have quite a warm complexion the colours will make beautiful highlight and contour shades but not necessarily bronzer shades. 


Oddly these creams swatch differently depending on what tool you use. Using my fingers to apply and blend, these creams moved and set perfectly, using an Real Techniques contour brush to apply and blend they applied so much more sparsely. And when applied with a flat concealer brush and blended out with a Real Techniques beauty sponge, didn't want to budge! So if your like me and not really a fan of using your fingers to blend then you may have some issues with this. The shades themselves are fab, the top 3 I've personally found make for stunning highlighters just between the concealer and contour, and the contour shades make for a perfect chiselled look depending on how deep or dramatic you want those cheekbones to be. 


I think for a drugstore palette this is a fab little bit of kit! For beginners this would be especially perfect and if your someone who is a cream worshiper then this may be your new cheaper friend! I'm still undecided whether I love this yet or not, I'll definitely be trying some higher end contour palettes to compare but am very impressed for such a cheap product! 


Have you tried this palette yet?
