Hey the ma blogging peeps!
Y’all know I have an obsession with contouring that borders on the psychotic and so why not do another review focusing on this category of makeup.
Facts about this product: It’s an Aussie brand, available in the store gloss and some Kmarts. Each of the shades are sold separately not together.
Appropriate for fair skin: I would say yes. Both the bronzing and contour stick isn’t so dark that it makes it hard to use on fair skin. Being that it’s a cream product you can blend it easily and control the level of intensity you desire.
Is it blendable? Yes it’s surprisingly blendable.
Is it easy to use? Cream contouring is made even easier being that these are contouring sticks. You literally draw on your contour and blend. Easy peasy!
The bronzing stick: Contouring with this shade is achievable but it’s more warm toned so if you’re into cooler toned shades for contouring this may not be for you. It does say bronzing on though so you could use it as a cream bronzer.
The contour stick: This is much cooler in tone, it reminds me of milk chocolate in terms of shade. This you would definitely use for the purpose of contouring not to warm up your complexion.
The highlight stick: It’s an off white creamy shade, you could use it for under your brow, the bridge of your nose, underneath your contour etc.
Natural or full on? I wouldn’t call it a dramatic contouring/bronzing/highlighting type of product but it’s still noticeable so it’s somewhere in between natural and full on but you could apply it in a manner that it looks more natural.
Does it last a good amount of time: I would call these contour / highlight sticks long lasting but setting them with a translucent powder or setting the cream contour with a powder contour definitely helps.
Contour on fleek? I find that it makes contouring your face quite easy and I’m always super happy with the results.
Packaging: Stick packaging and it winds up so you don’t have to worry about sharpening them.
Price: $6.95 AUD each (each stick is sold separately or as a bundle)
Pros: Easy to blend, super affordable, sold separately so if you only like one shade you aren’t forced to by all three (although they now have an option to buy all three in a pack or separately). It’s also super easy to contour with because it’s in stick form.
Cons: Not super-duper long lasting, only available in Australia and it’s slightly tricky to find them. Only shade of each available, so there isn’t a variety with the bronzing stick, contour stick and highlighting stick. Also not wearable on dark skin tones.
Rating: 8.5 / 10
Overall thoughts? I’m really impressed with these contour sticks considering the price. They may not be the longest lasting but they’re easy to use, not drying and look good. They’re definitely worth trying out as they make contouring easier.
Would I repurchase any of the shades? I definitely would repurchase the contour and bronzing sticks. I cannot get myself to like cream contouring no matter what I do so for this product I wouldn’t repurchase the highlight stick.
And that concludes todays post. Are you guys a fan of contouring sticks or cream contouring in general? What do you think about cream highlighting? Tell me in the comments below. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you in the next post.
