Ruby Contour Kit

Firstly I hope you all had a lovely long Easter weekend! Today's review is going to be the Ruby Contour Kit.

Firstly Ruby cosmetics is online only, but they do go to events e.g Birmingham Clothes Show which is where I bought mine from. They also only specialise in contour and eyebrows (which is very 'in' at the moment). I would say that in away it is a 'dupe' for the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit but more a take on it. They actually retail for the same price £39.99 or with the Ruby one you can have it

come with two brushes which costs £85.00. If you want to know my thoughts on this kit then keep reading!

Firstly the packaging: personally I feel that the packaging is a bit cheap looking as it's cardboard, it feels very flimsy, also the packaging gets dirty very easily but their is a bonus that it does come with a decent size mirror perfect for travelling.

The product itself comes in one shade but does have three different contour shades. In total this kit has six shades; a blush called flirt which is like a barbie pink shade (more of a spring shade); a setting powder (which looks so similar to the banana powder in the Anastasia kit)  called Tease; a highlighter call Desire; a warm brown colour called coffee (more a bronzer shade on me); Coco which is the colour I use to contour, it's more neutral than the other 2 and then lastly Nut which is a very orange/brown colour and one that I will never use.

All six shades are pigmented but chalky and you have to really work your brush into the product to get the pay off , the blusher and coco shade work well on top of foundation, the rest show up a bit weird. I do feel that some of the colours are a bit off like the highlighter I dislike because it's like a skin colour and doesn't do much when it comes to highlighting. Like said above the shade nut I will never get any use out of because its more orange than brown and will look awful on me. I've got a lot of use out of the blusher especially now it's spring and i've got a bit of use out of the shade coco as a contour but personally these shades are all too warm for my complexion and only suit me when I am tanned. The setting powder is very chalky I thought this would be brilliant for setting under the eyes but it doesn't sit right and just looks chalky.

All in all i'm on the fence with this kit, I think if the price was lower then I think it would be brilliant for someone who can't afford the Anastasia but because they are the same price, I wouldn't recommend it.

Have you tried this kit? If so what is your opinion?

Thanks for reading!
