Contouring is hot and happening in beauty world. It has been for a while and it seems like it’s not getting any less hot in the next couple of months. I personally never really cared for contouring, I just apply some bronzer everyday and a bit of highlighter and that’s it. But because it’s just a popular thing to do I decided I wanted to give it a try for myself and therefore I bought this Sephora Highlight Lowlight Face Contour Duo. Today I’m going to review it and tell you guys everything about it. If you’re interested in finding out more about this product, make sure you continue reading!
The Sephora Contour Stick comes in a pretty plastic looking packaging. Overall I just don’t really like it. I do like the fact that it comes in a box, I think that’s quite fancy, but the plastic lids just really add a cheapish look to the packaging and I’m not a huge fan of that.
The packaging itself does feel pretty sturdy and there really isn’t anything wrong with it aside from the fact that I just don’t like the look of it. A positive thing I do have to say about it is that it’s nice that you can see the colour of the product through the lid. That might make working with it just a tad bit easier.
I bought this stick in Poland were they have it in two different shades: light and medium. At Sephora France and USA they have four shades: light, medium, tan and deep. I don’t know why this is the case, but since I needed to buy the light version anyway I didn’t really care about that a lot.
This contour duo comes with two sides. On one end you’ll find the bronzer part. It’s an angled creamy stick that you can put on the places you’d normally apply bronzer to and the highlighter side is rounded and is meant to be applied at the highest points of your face.
Let’s start with discussing the bronzer/sculpting side of the product. Like I said this product comes in a few different shades. The shade I bought, light, is perfect for pale girls like me. It’s a bit of a milk chocholate colour with a slight warm tone to it, but it’s not orangy at all. It’s the perfect shade to sculpt your face with.
I really like that the point is angled so it’s easier to apply very sharp and straight lines with it. You don’t want to mess around with your bronzer of course. The product itself is creamy enough to apply properly and evenly, but it’s not slipping and sliding everywhere.
The highlighter side has a round tip, unlike the bronzer side. I don’t really know why this is the case, but it works fine for me. It applies the product just as easily as the other side does and the texture is very similar.
The colour of this highlighter is perfect for everyday. It’s nothing too strong or too intense. It’s a creamy off-white shade without any shimmer to it. It’s perfect to lighten up the face and to accentuate the cheekbones and such, but it’s not going to turn you into a disco ball.
The pigmentation of the product is just amazing. I actually didn’t expect it to be so nice. It looks very nice and it feels nice on the skin. Both products are easy to blend but not so easy that they’ll fade within a minute. I’m very impressed by the quality of this product. Great job Sephora!
I sadly don’t have a picture of the results but it looks quite good on the face. I don’t think it’s the best product ever for sculpting the face because it’s just not as intense as some other products are, but it’s great if you’re new to contouring like me or if you just want to keep it simple and natural.
Overall I think this contour duo by Sephora is a great product. It does what it’s supposed to do and the product feels and looks really nice. I don’t have anything bad to say about it. It’s not a product I feel like you should go crazy for, it won’t be a favourite of mine, but it’s a nice product.
The Sephora Highlight Lowlight Face Contour Duo is available at Sephora for €14,95.
That’s it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you do contour your face and if so, what product do you like using?
