Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light Review

Hey my beautifuls how are you all doing?  I hope my lovely readers from America are keeping save and dry and I pray that this hurricane will pass soon My thoughts are with you all and with the families who have lost someone in this horrible act of nature :( 
Today i am Raving/reviewing about a fantastic product that i havent put down since i got it.  The Famous Sleek Face Contour Kit.  I bought this months ago from Beauty Emporium I got it at a reduced price.  They are also available on the Sleek site but at the time they were out of stock they cost £6.49 and they are full stocked now :) 
I have always wanted a good contour kit something that light easy and travel friendly but most of all does the job right !!!! I have found what i am looking for with this little beauty 
There are 3 shades to choose from Light Medium and Dark and to be honest even though there are only 3 shades its very hard to see what the shades is like unless you see it in person.  That why i put it off for some time.  Then I say some of the Irish beauty guru's using it in some tutorials and Sineady Cady from themakeupchair she loves it and uses the shade light so i opted for the light shade as us Irish Gals are blessed with lovely fair skin some fairer than fair lol so its hard to not look oranged up with contour powders :) 
Wow I have just noticed i really do ramble lol.  Well onto the packaging which is not much to chat about.  Its a typical black plastic palette the same as the blushes and eyeshadow palettes from Sleek.  I do notice that the packaging is stain free meaning that powder or fingerprints will not stay on the packaging brilliant.  If there is one thing i hate its a messy looking palette :) 
The lid is very sturdy which i love as its handy to bring on travel and you also get a nice sized mirror inside which too handy :) :) 
I love that the contour shade is bigger than the highlight side as you know you will use alot more of the contour side than the highlight side.  
The Palette consists of a lovely warm brown shade and of course matte which most of us look for in a contour shade as we do not want to make it obvious that we have thinned out areas on our face do we now ;) and the highlight is a stunning pale pink shade with teeny tiny specks of gold in it 
I apply the contour under my jawbone , my temple, down along my jawline, and along my hairline as I have a high forehead.  I apply the highlight on top on my cheek bones, under my brow, down the bridge of my nose sometimes on my cupids bow, sometimes even on the centre of my lips and i use this down the centre of my legs to give them a little va va voom :) 
The powder on both sides is very finely milled.  There is no chalkiness whatsoever so you have no fear of a mess.  I love the highlight side as it gives such a stunning natural glow without making it obvious you put it there ;)  The contour is amazing and looks so natural , it didnt give me an orange look at all amazing!!!!!! 
I find myself reaching for this everyday lately i have even used the contour side on my cheeks and not used a blush.  Another way of using this is on the eyes to me it didnt effect my eyes at all i use the contour side in the crease and the highlight side in the inner corner of eyes :) 
Isnt it just stunning.  This is definitely a favourite of mine this month and will surely be a favourite for quite some time :) Its amazing and Sleek surely thought this out well :) The shade is the right shade for someone with fair to medium skin tone.  
Have you tried this yet? You gotta try it seriously you wont be disappointed :) 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

I'm so grateful for this interview- I have been looking for a good contouring powder for a while and I love that this comes with a little highlighter. I'm a big fan of Sleek Products so I have high hopes!

great review. I love my sleek face contour kit, too. Right on many love to contour compared to highlight but good thing we don't have to choose given that it's included in the kit too. :)

I reviewed mine along with how to, please check it out. :)
