Sleek face form contour kit : review

I'm going to put myself out there and say that I love multi-tasking products! They make things easier, quicker and they save space... and ultimately, I feel like I am really getting my money's worth from a product with multiple uses. So here's one multi-use product I am currently loving from Sleek, a brand which is currently stocked in Superdrug. 


 The sleek face form kit comes in the standard 'sleek' packaging, which is black, small and very compact - making it perfect for travel purposes and it is sturdy enough to take a few knocks in the bottom of a bag. As with any black packaging, it will attract dirt and marks, very similar to the high end comparison Nars. I enjoyed sleek cosmetics for around 2 years - I adore their eyeshadow palettes as they are very pigmented and great value for money, they have some great dupes too. However, I hadn't tried their infamous contour kit! 

 Unlike the original contour kit, the face form kit comes with an extra pan which is a blush. I picked up the shade Fair, it is also available in medium. Inside the kit is an almost matte light bronze contour powder, a shimmering highlight and the Rose Gold blush (an infamous Nars orgasm dupe!) 

I find this contour powder to be a perfect shade for my skin tone, I wear an ivory/vanilla foundation so in the past I have struggled to find a bronzer or contour powder that doesn't look orange or muddy with my complexion. I use this with an angled blush brush or with my real techniques contour brush and apply it just below my cheekbones to give the appearance of a contoured face (despite my chubby cheeks and round head, I think it works). The highlight powder is a gorgeous illuminating shade and looks lovely applied under the brow bone or on the tops of the cheeks to give a healthy looking glow. The blush, is the prettiest shade I've seen from sleek - I know a lot of their blushes can be a bit 'in your face' bright, but this is subtle and pretty, get packed with pigment! You need a tiny amount on your brush to achieve the desired look - so take that as a warning if you are a bit heavy handed with powder products! 


I'm really impressed with this product overall - I haven't stopped using it recently. If you work out the cost, it's just over £3 per pan, which is a bargain if you ask me. I like that there is everything I need in one place, so it's ideal for travel or if you're spending the night away or perhaps if you're going out straight from work. It also houses a large mirror which is perfect for on the go applications. At less than £10 for the whole thing - I'd definitely recommend it, especially if you are pale like me and want to find a non-orange contour powder! 

Have you tried any of Sleek's products?
