Barry M Flawless Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit

Let's talk about contour and the trend that has still not passed and seems to be with us for the long run, contouring kits can be expensive but Barry M came out with an affordable option, the chisel cheeks palette.

Just like the rest of Barry M packaging it came in cardboard form, which isn't study and tends to go looking dirty very quickly. In this contour kit you get three types of powder, a highlight and 2 brown contour shades. They come in dinky pans but just wide enough to get a brush, the kit is very compact perfect for travelling. For the price you can't really ask for much more. (£6.49 ). My only downside is there is no mirror but I guessed by the price that there wouldn't be one but instead they have placed a step by step guide on how to use this palette.

Like I said about the kit contains three pressed powders; a highlighter, bronzer and contour powder, all three of them are matte which is nice for a drugstore palette. Starting with the lightest shade the highlight, it is a soft ivory, yellow based powder more like a brightening banana powder which is all the rage at the moment. This is suppose to add light to the face without the need of shimmer particles.   Personally I didn't see the point in this it didn't do anything for me, other than adding more product to my face, the texture is very chalky and looks a little bit weird like cakey on the skin.

Next we have the warm more like a bronzer shade, which i'm guessing is just to add warmth to the face as I don't think anyone can use this as a contour shade, personally this is a very muddy shade of brown to me, it's very powdery and pigmented but it does warm the complexion. 

Last we have the contour shade i'm guessing which is very deep, with a hint of a cool/ grey base to it, the texture is the same to the other ones powdery but pigmented. For me this is still too dark for a contour shade but it's workable just needs a lot of blending and a light hand. 

This a great budget contour if you are on a budget but I do feel like there is better contour kits on the market than this one. The powders are well pigmented and do blend nicely, this kit would be perfect for people with a bit of a darker tanned complexion as it's a little bit dark for pale skin tones.

Have you tried this palette?

Thank you for reading!
