Hey everyone! Today I have an exciting review for you all. Recently, Glo Minerals launched their much awaited Contour Kit along with a Contour/Highlight Brush. The kit comes in fair to light and medium to dark. I picked out the medium to dark because I love both a subtle and dramatic contour (this usually depends on what look I am going for). I have included many photos and information on these products down below.
Can we take a moment and admire the sleek packaging? Glo Minerals always nails it with their packaging, I am obsessed!
To start off, the Contour Kit comes with a little face chart to inform you on the best ways to apply each shade and where to apply them. This is definitely great for those of you who need a visual aid to help you throughout the application process.
The Contour Kit comes with four shades, from left to right: highlight (a matte banana shade for highlighting the high points of your face and under the eyes), shimmer highlight ( a shimmer shade to add a luminous glow and to highlight the cheekbones and anywhere you desire), contour 1 (this is a cool tone contour shade great for many skin tones and to add that perfect chiseled out look) and lastly, contour 2 (a warmer contour shade perfect for bronzing up your look).
My favorite thing about Glo Minerals is the formulation of their products. The formulation of the Contour Kit is smooth and doesn't feel chalky at all. All four shades are easy to blend, so if you are a beginner, this will help you out immensely.
Glo Minerals also launched a dual ended Contour/Highlight Brush, perfectly designed for this kit. One end is for contouring, while the other is for highlighting. While this brush was made for contour and highlighting, I have found that the highlight end is perfect for applying foundation or under eye concealer and the contour side is perfect for powder and blush. So if you're always on the go, or are going on a trip, this brush is perfect for multi-purpose use.
The contour end of the brush is a tapered round brush, perfect for blending out a seamless contour. My favorite thing about this brush is how soft the bristles feel. After washing the brush a couple of times, I didn't have to worry about any shedding because the quality of the brush is amazing.
The highlighting end of the brush is perfect for applying the highlight shade under the eyes and for delicately applying the shimmer highlight on the cheekbones.
In this photo I contoured and highlighted with the Contour Kit and went for a more subtle cheek look. When it comes down to wear, this product doesn't get muddy throughout the day and really looks great for my entire wear. I am seriously in love with this kit and highly recommend you add it to your makeup collection. Remember to use the code "LOVEJOMY15" to receive 15% off your next purchase.
I hope you all enjoyed this review!
Until next time.
Love, Jomy! xx
