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.

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
