Review: Sleek Contour Kit in Medium

sleek contour kit medium review nc30
Thanks to the sweet blogger Latasha I was able to try the popular Contour Kit from Sleek. She sent me the color Medium which is perfect for my skin tone. The Contour Kit is available in three shades (Light, Medium, Dark) and retails for $9.99 at the Sleek Cosmetics website. This is a product I have always wanted to try because it's a favorite amongst beauty lovers. Plus, it's affordable and I believe there is a lack of contour products in the drugstore market.

I'll be brief with this review because the Contour Kit is a very basic product. Both the highlighter and contour powder are very pigmented. The contour powder is a bit warm toned, something cooler toned individuals might not appreciate. I really love the highlighter because it's very subtle, not frosty or glittery. The texture of the powders is soft, but it could be softer. Specially for the contour powder. Since it's so pigmented, it's a bit harder to blend (in comparison to every other bronzer/contour powder I've tried). That would be my only critique. When it comes to bronzers, a bit of translucency is actually a good thing because bronzing/contouring can turn into a hot mess real fast. Regardless, it's a good product and wears very well throughout the day.

Have you tried Sleek's Contour Kit? What do you think?

  14. It looks great, especially for the price. I can't get Sleek products in the drugstores in Canada but I think I can get them online. I'll definitely have to consider this. xx

  17. This looks great on you. I would really like to try it out. I also would love to try one of their blush by 3 palettes too. I always hear great things about Sleek's pigmentation.

  23. I have the version in light, and i like using a big powder brush, as it won't blend too well otherwise (: xx

  24. I always look at these but I've not purchased one yet because even the light shade looks pretty dark and I'd probably end up applying too much hehe

  29. Oh, I have this kit too but I can't get the contouring right! Yours is perf, looks gorgeous. It is a very pigmented powder so I might just try it with a much lighter hand! The highlighter though...it's gorgeousss. Very good value kit!

  30. I use the light one and love it <3

  31. I wish someone would come out with a contour kit like the one that Smashbox had, with a matte highlight color instead of something shimmery. Bummer that it's a bit hard to blend, but I think for the price point it's worth the try to see if I like it. Great review.

  34. I own Sleek palettes but not that.It's so pretty!

  35. This REALLY warms up your complexion and looks gorgeous on you Coco… very nifty to have your highlighter and contour in the same palette (not that that's anything new but I have yet to own a duo like this myself!)! :)
