Being as pale as me, makes it hard to find a decent contouring product. So when I saw this contour kit in the shade: ultra light, I was intriqued. I got this in my latest Makeup Revolution haul, and have been putting it to the test for quite a while now. So let's get on with the review.
There are 2 Shades available, "Ultra fair" and "light-medium"
Price: £3,50 or about $5,53 at Makeup Revolutions website.
Packaging: Very compact and sleek plastic palette. Even though it's such an affordable product, I still find the quality of the packaging to be nice. It's not flimsy at all, it seems quite sturdy and it even has a bit of wheight to it. It does have a teeny tiny mirror in the lid, wich I find to be useless but other than that, I'm very pleased with the quality. You get 11 grams of product.
This contour kit comes with 3 face powders; a matte bronzer, a beautiful champagne highlight and a pink blush with a golden sheen.
I am very pleased with the bronzer, I can easily use this as a contour and even to add warmth to my face. It's rare for me to find a bronzer that is cool toned enough but still very wearable as a contour AND bronzer, that can still add warmth to my skin as well. The highlight is absolutely amazing, it reminds me quite a lot of my Mary Lumanizer in tone and quality. I do wish that the blush would have been matte. Honestly... I'm not going to wear a glowy blush AND a glowy highlight at the same time. I do like the blush, but when I use it, I skip the highlight.
I am so impressed with the quality of these powders, they are silky smooth, pigmented and extremely well made. I feel like I'm using a high end product when I use this kit.
I have had absolutely no problems with the staying power. I don't feel the need to touch up throughout the day, as I do with some of my more affordable face products.
I have to say that Makeup Revolution really did a great job with this kit, and I love that they make products for Guys and girls as pale as me. I just can't say enough great Things about this very affordable kit. The quality is not just amazing for the Price, it's amazing all together.
I definately recommend this kit, especially for the bronzer and the highlight, I could have done without the shimmer in the blush though. Definately a great product to have in your Collection.
