Sleek Face Contour Kit - Light - £9.99 

I prefer my face to have a slight glow rather than a full matt look just because for me It looks healthier. And its only recently I've began to delve into contouring and highlighting powders.

I picked this little kit up from Sleek in Superdrug which comes in three different shade palettes; Medium, Light and Fair. I’m a big fan of having the same group of products in the one place and so you could say I have mild obsession with palettes. 

The Sleek Face Form Palette packaging is beautiful and as described by the name very ‘Sleek’ and sophisticated. The kit comes with a mirror inside which is a double bonus for travelling!

The contouring powder is a warm medium brown with chocolate tones and a matt finish which is pretty hard to come by in the bronzing/ contouring world. You only need a light sweep of the powder on your brush as it’s highly pigmented and easier to build up if you ‘take it easy’. I use it under my cheek bones and lightly across the bottom of my jaw. It blends perfectly with my skin tone and adapts to my foundation leaving a smooth, natural finish.

The highlighter is a creamy white powder with a warm pearl shimmer. The best thing about this powder is that although it is highly pigmented it needs to be built up. One sweep leaves a hint of shimmer but a couple more leaves a more natural summer glow. I find it best for using across the top of the cheek bone and under the arch of the brow.  

And I think I can call this my new favourite Spring/Summer blusher. A peachy pink shade with a light dusting of gold shimmer that isn’t too over whelming on the cheeks. The product blends in perfectly with my skin tone and doesn’t leave a glittery layer but instead a light summer rosy tint.

Its unusual to find a palette that I like all the shades and products inside but this is a first! They leave a natural finish that surprisingly doesn't leave you looking like a freshly polished tin man. For £9.99 this is definitely a beauty steal!

  10. Oh, am I jealous! I want this blush so badly! I found somewhat of a "dupe" at KIKO. I think it may be a litte too pigmented though. The Sleek palette looks so perfect!
