Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in Medium-Review & Swatches

Hey people-obsessed-with-makeup-like-me! When I first entered the magnificent world of cosmetics, I tried to collect all the basics and found that I was short of a suitable contouring shade. Most bronzers these days are not matte or too orange-y and unflattering for this purpose. Most contouring kits I came across seemed too expensive or didn’t have a shade that matched my complexion. So, you can imagine my frustration and utter agony. 

Finally, I decided to try the Sleek Contour Kit in Medium, although I felt the quantity could have been more and I really didn’t need a highlighter. Once I used it, all my doubts and regrets literally went poof! Read on to find out how this product won my heart!

Product Claims

This iconic duo compact is an essential tool for achieving a beautifully sculpted and defined appearance. It includes a silky, matte, easy to blend contour powder and an illuminating highlighter for a natural glow. They can be used together or individually.

What Do I Think?

Those of you, who are familiar with Sleek Makeup, will recognize the characteristic matte black packaging. It is very sturdy, another reason why I am a Sleek fan. Most of their face products come with a built in mirror, which is well sized and pocket friendly in this case. The contour pan is larger than the highlight one and together they hold 10g of pressed powder product.

The contour is shade is a medium neutral matte brown that is a pleasure to swatch. The light beige shimmery highlight formula is similarly dreamy and glides on effortlessly. It lends a beautiful natural glow as the shimmer is not visible on the skin unless you look closely. Both are extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way. The blending power is superb, which is imperative for face sculpting formulas.

I have tested the staying power of this contour kit in warm and cool seasons, with and without fixing spray, and I must say I am impressed. On my combination skin during pleasant weather, it lasted for a good 8-9 hours without fading in the absence of a setting product. In the hot Pakistani summers, it looked fine even after 6-7 hours with my Stageline makeup fixing spray.      

The Sleek Makeup Contouring Kit comes in three shades and I picked “Medium”. In my opinion, this will suit fair skinned ladies with cool, neutral or warm toned skin. Pale ladies should opt for “Light” while medium to dark ones should choose “Dark”.

Overall, I think this is the most affordable contour kit in the market with this level of quality. You definitely get your money’s worth and not regret buying it. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a budget friendly contour kit that gives great results.
