Sleek Make Up Face Contour Kit Review

I finally managed to get hold of a Sleek face contour kit!! My shade (light) has been sold out in my local shops for weeks and this was the last one left on the shelf. I first saw this on a youtube face contouring tutorial, although I've never really given face contouring a thought! This was £6.50 from Superdrug - the only place in my local area that stocks the Sleek brand.

As you can see it comes in a very chic and plain black case and has a small mirror inside. On the left there is pressed powder, which is basically a light textured bronzer. This is used to create shadows on the face such as the cheekbones and either side of the nose.

On the right side is a powder highlighter used to highlight the top of the cheekbones to create a a more defined look. You can also sweep this down the nose to give it a slimmed down look.

The kit comes with a little leaflet that gives you a step by step guide on how to apply including how to blend the two together to diffuse any harsh lines.

I love this and would highly recommend it to anyone! Its a cute little product that's great to have in your bag and is really easy to use. The only thing I would warn you about is not going for the darker or medium shades if you're quite pale. I'm pale and I think the pressed powder is just right for me, any darker and it wouldn't look right at all. The highlighter can be used by itself over your normal bronzer or blusher and also looks pretty brushed on your brow bone to highlight.

The camera doesn't show it too well but the pressed
powder is along the top and the highlighter is just underneath.

Am I jumping on the contouring band waggon really late or have people been doing this for a while? What Sleek products do you use? xxx


  1. I am so jealous you have this! I've seen it used everywhere and can't find it anywhere! Gah!

    Anyway I have to use a nude blusher and a highlighter pen to achieve a similar effect! Contouring is such a great thing to try and looks stunning on almost everyone! You should post your results when you've used it!

  2. I can't believe I managed to get the last one as well! Very happy bunny. I used it this morning, pretty easy and looks good. I'm working my way up to posting pictures of myself on here...i'm camera shy! :)

  3. Thanks for finding me, loving your blog! You do such great reviews and I can't believe you don't have more followers! As for contouring, it's such a scary concept to me I haven't dared try it yet! I think I might give it a shot once I get my hands on this, Sleek sound amazing!

  4. Ah thanks Ali, that's really nice of you to say. I've been networking to find more followers but have been so busy lately I've not been able to put more time in to it.

    Sleek products are great and not all that expensive either - give it a go! There's loads of contouring tutorials on youtube so you can get an idea of the results. Thanks for following. xx
