Sleek 'Light' Face Contour Kit Review

14 comments
Sleek's Contour kit is the perfect little tool you need if you're fancying delving into the ever so slightly complicated world of contouring. I first chose this 'Contour Kit' in shade 'light' as I have been enjoying using Benefit's Hoola bronzer, but with its hefty price tag at £24.50, I wanted a cheaper alternative. Enter Sleek with its affordable and stunning shades of contour and blush kits. I decided to go for the 'Face Contour' kit as apposed to the 'Face Form' kit as that includes a blush and I tend to stick more to bronzers recently. I was slightly apprehensive as to whether the lightest shade may even be slightly too dark for my skin tone as the bronzer does look a very dark matte shade when photographed.
 
 
 
Sleek Contour Kit - £6.49.
 
The 'Face Contour' kit comes beautifully packaged in Sleek's traditionally sophisticated black outer packaging, with the actual kit being a plain black compact mirror kit, perfect for popping in your handbag and topping up when you are out and about. Being a bad beauty blogger, I actually haven't got the outer packaging to photograph as I have been using this for a good few months now (and it's still going strong), so please accept my apologies for that! The Face Contour kit is a duo including exactly what you need for contouring (minus the brush!) - the kit includes a matte bronzing powder and a shimmering illuminating highlighter. If you're new to contouring, you may want to have a little look at a previous post I wrote here with  a few handy tips and tricks.
 
 
The bronzer is a warm brown matte shade which I absolutely love. As I mentioned, I was slightly concerned it may have been too dark for my skin tone, but it seems to be the perfect shade and blends in really easily. As much as I love the shade of the bronze, I do have to admit that Hoola does last a heck of a lot longer - but seeing as Sleek are a lot less cheaper, it's not much hardship to top up throughout the day if needs be. The highlighter itself is actually not as used by myself as it could be, as I tend to prefer to contour with a concealer. The highlighter is a pale shimmer highlight which blends easily and is you can see is very light on the skin - at first I was concerned it may be like wearing glitter on your face - but no worries there! All in all, I would definitely recommend this product to you! I would repurchase and I'm also looking forward to making a few other Sleek purchases too - oops!
 
Sleek's Face Contour kit is available in three shades of light, medium and dark and retails at a bargain price of £6.49!

  4. I think the brown shade is perfect for fairer skin. It's not too orange or dirty, just perfect.

  5. I've been wondering whether to buy this or not, I'm really pale so I have the same worries as you about the bronzer! It sounds lovely though :) xx
