Testing the £2.73 contour kit

Browsing amazon for cheap makeup is probably one of my favourite things to do. I love nothing more than finding a bargain, even if I do have to wait two months for it to arrive from China. But anyway, when I saw this contour stick kit for £2.73 with free delivery, the idea of doing a blogpost on it came to mind immediately I ordered it straight away.

The kit comes with a contour stick, a brightening concealer stick and a highlighter stick. Starting off with the contour stick its extremely pigmented and actually blends out really well. The colour of it is slightly too orange for me although with some powder bronzer on top it looks much better. The brightening stick, just like the contour one, is extremely pigmented and is actually a perfect shade for me. When I apply this to my forehead, bridge of my nose and chin and blend it out with a sponge it gives a lovely highlighted glow. Finally the highlighter, although I really liked the colour of this as it was a nice pinky toned shade, it was just nowhere near as pigmented as the other two and blended out into nothing.

Each of the sticks has a number on it which co-ordinates with a picture on the back of the box that gives you a guide on how to contour your face, which I actually think is really helpful. For under £3 I think this little kit is well worth it, even just for the contour and brightening shades. I will leave a link to where I bought it from on Amazon here so you can try it out yourself if you want. It also arrived within a few days which made it even better! Thanks for reading.

  2. Haha don't worry I do this too! How do you think I found their incredible liquid highlighter!! The only thing I don't like about this is the fact that they have the numbers on the bottom I mean I understand it's great for beginners but nah!

  7. Those are some great products! I'm always hesitant when buying makeup online, though. I prefer to see what I'm purchasing with my own eyes. Do you have a favorite shop/online store for beauty products?
