So, it’s official. Contouring is here to stay for 2015! The Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contouring Kit is a three shade powder pan palette so if you’re nimble with a brush, you can start defining and refining.
I really like that they’ve used diagrams and words to describe what you’re supposed to do – personally, I think it’s easier to contour with a creme formula, but despite having talc as its top ingredient, the Barry M formula is soft enough to blend onto the skin beautifully.
The first shade is a standard cream colour, but the middle colour is a warm bronze shade (don’t forget I’m swatching at intensity – you’d blend it out and never wear at this strength) but a bit of a strange one in that it changes in different lights and the final colour is a deeper brown – less warm than the middle shade. Bone structure in a palette? Maybe. Those little diagrams look so simple and I feel as though I could follow them confidently – some pictures are SO complicated I can’t even begin!
The Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contouring Kit launches in February (Boots on the 4th and Superdrug on 11th) for £6.49.
