Hello Lovely People,
Hope you are all doing great! We apologize for our absence from the blog; just occupied with personal issues; but now we are back and promise to flood your inboxes this month! 😀
Contouring has become such a necessary step in makeup that we just do not feel complete without it! Like mascara is to the eyes, contour is to the face! Finding affordable contour products is really difficult especially in India. But, I found one product that I absolutely love and is super pocket friendly its the “Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette “! I have always been a huge fan of Sleek makeup as it delivers quality! So, without further ado, lets jump straight into the review!
Packaging: Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette comes is a rectangular black packaging with Sleek engraved on the top, while the bottom showcases the product details! The inside has three compartments meant to hold the contour colour, the highlighter and the blush! It has an inbuilt mirror as well. I love the packaging and the fact that it saves me from carrying three products in my makeup bag; saving a lot of space i.e. its great to carry around when you travel!
Ingredients : Pressed Powder: Talc, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Nylon-12, Dimethicone, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Magnesium Stearate, Jojoba Esters MAY CONTAIN: YELLOW IRON OXIDE(CI 77492), RED IRON OXIDE(CI 77491), BLACK IRON OXIDE(CI 77499),
Colour: I picked up the shade MEDIUM 374 ; its an apt shade for women with fair to medium skin tones! As mentioned earlier, the kit holds three shades
The contour colour is a nice deep earthy brown that blends into your skin to give a beautifully chiseled face! It gives you the desired depth and definition without looking too prominent! Photographs amazingly!
The highlight shade is a champagne colour with golden tints which looks awesome on Indian skin tones without being too shimmery or in-the-face! Again, it doesn’t look harsh on the skin, adds a beautiful glow and looks oh-so-gorgeous in pictures!
The blush colour in the palette is a gorgeous bronze with slightly pink undertones which are not very prominent. It has shimmer but does not look over the top. A great shade to team up with intense smoked out eyes and nude lips!
Texture, Longevity and Pigmentation: The texture of these powders is amazing, it blends easily into the skin without having to tug or pull at. They not very powdery and have minimum fall-ofs! The contour shades requires a tad extra effort while blending though! Once applied, the contour looks amazing without looking cakey or chalky. I love how they last pretty much seven hours and the pigmentation is AWESOMENESS! One swipe is all you need for that dash of colour and a beautifully contoured face!
Caution*: Always be light handed with powder products as you could just add too much and it might get difficult to blend out and might leave harsh lines on your face! The Sleek Face Form contouring and blush palette has high pigmentation so always tap the excess out, or just work your way in by using little product and build it up to your liking!
Mommy Verdict: The Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush palette in Medium 374 has been my ride or die since I got it! I love how it works as a multi-purpose product holding three products in one and how inexpensive it is! The colours are ideal for Indian skin tones and the highlighter is LOVE! I recommend this to all you beauties on a budget, this will surely take the top place in your list of favourites!!
