Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit

Hello there internet peeps! Well it’s review time and you guys know what a contouring connoisseur I am. So I thought I’d reduce the list of contouring products I have to review by one today.
Let’s rock and roll!

 

Does it work for fair skin? The shade Fair works very well on lighter skin tones as the name suggests and it includes a blush. The light/medium shade does not include a bronzer and doesn’t work at all on fair skin, I’ve begun using that as a trio eye shadow kit.

Is it blendable? It does blend well! The highlighters definitely require some blending as they appear odd on the cheekbones if they’ve been placed there without blending.
The highlighter: It’s a very intense highlighter, not something you’d want to wear on your cheekbones if it is a bright and sunny day. The sunlight will definitely expose A LOT of glitter which can lead to a pretty tacky makeup look. I do prefer to wear this on non-sunny days or at night. This highlighter is awesome for inner corner and brow bone highlight. The highlighter in the light/medium shade is much darker and more difficult to use as a cheekbone highlighter, I use this as an eyeshadow as well.

The blush: It’s a very pretty blush, glowy in finish. Once again be weary of wearing it on a very sunny day as the glitter is more noticeable. Also it’s pretty pigmented so tread lightly when applying it so you don’t end up looking like a clown. In the light/medium shade there is no blush, just a shimmery copper bronzer. I use this as an eyeshadow.
The contour shade: Literally my favorite, this shade alone is Holy Grail status for me, so gorgeous, natural yet noticeable. Perfect as a transition shade for both contour and eye shadow. Cannot say enough good things about the contour shade. In the light to medium shade, I use the dark contour shad as a crease color.
Longevity: It lasts a standard amount of time for a powder product.
Packaging: Basic packaging with a clear lid so you see what you get, it’s sleek as well which makes it travel friendly and easy to throw in your makeup bag.
Price: $7.41 AUD
Availability? The makeup revolution site, UK peeps can find this in store.
Shade range? This the fair shade and the light to medium shade.
Pros: Sleek packaging, affordable, you can use it for a range of things not just for the face but on the eyes as well.
Cons: Highlighter isn’t day time appropriate, the light to medium shade is far too dark for light skin, I personally use it as an eyeshadow trio kit.
Rating: 8/10
Overall thoughts? This is a great contour product, I’m a personal fan of the shade fair and find it such a nifty multi-tasking product. It’s affordable, good quality and that contour shade is the shade of angels!
Would I repurchase it? I’ll definitely be purchasing the fair shade

That wraps up the review guys. What contour duo, trios or kits have you been loving? Tell me about them in the comments below. I hope you guys have a wonderful day, I’ll see you guys in the next post.

    I love Makeup Revolution so I probably would give this a try – I love contour kits as it's great to have everything in one palette so you can throw it in your handbag and go!

    I am a total fail when it comes to contouring and don't own any kits. Whenever I apply a full face of makeup and need some definition back, I use MAC “Harmony” powder blush, which is matte and taupe and works pretty well for me.

    Yes many contour trios resemble the sleek one, I've always wanted to get that sleek one, is it any good?

    You are welcome. I have so many contouring products and they are all drugstore.

    It's a difficult thing to do, just like eye liner. Most does I am only semi pleased with my contouring.

    These are great, affordable contouring kits. MUR have really nice products. I agree though that some of their highlighters are a bit too chunky and shimmery. x

    I don't have many contouring products, and I don't have any palettes like that. Recently I've been loving theBalm Bahama mama for contouring. These ones look pretty, most of the highlighters in palettes are kinda a failure.

    This sounds lovely! It's a bit of a shame that the highlighter is a bit glittery! I love a highlighter to be more shimmer haha! But I think you're right, it can be worn at night! Great review!:)

    The highlighter is too extreme but I use it as a awesome inner corner highlight. And it really does work at night, thank you.

    MUR is such a great, affordable brand but I do agree that not everything is perfect with their products. Shame the highlighter is disappointing x

    I don't think any brand can be perfect but their in conjunction to quality is crazy and in Australia, makeup is so freaking expensive.

    Love these trios! They remind me of the Sleek ones and for the price you kind of can't beat them! I feel like younger girls who are getting into makeup are so lucky to have these kinds of brands around because they're affordable and of decent quality ^_^

    Yeah a lot of people have been saying that, I think sleek were one of the first drugstore brands to come out with a blush, highlighter and contour trio back before contouring was a big thing so people ultimately think of that when these se these kind of trios now. Yes that is very true but I feel like younger girls are basically starting off with mac and too face and urban decay, I mean I started off using rimmel haha.

    Reminds me of the Sleek Makeup Face Palette! I don't do a full face makeup but good eye shadows and face products reviews does excites me 🙂 Need to keep up what's new in the market huh x Happy Thursday dear.

    This reminds me of Maybelline's trios which has been launched in US but it's not out in Canada yet. Good to read that these palettes work well, Makeup Revolution is great quality for a low price.

    It really is! I wish they sold the contour shade separately it's that good. I've been meaning to try Nars Laguna and yes you do this brand is freaking awesome.

    Oh you should get it. That contour shade is heaven, the highlighter shade is wearable at night and makes an awesome inner corner highlight and the blush is very pretty.
