While I don’t think that the forthcoming Illamasqua Gel Sculpt can be beaten on ultra-easy contouring, the Stila Contouring Duo isn’t far behind it, with a weightless, cream texture that makes blending – the most crucial part of contouring – a piece of cake.

The instruction booklet is very clear about how to get the look you want with contouring – I’d suggest that the brush, at £33, regardless of its shape is non-essential unless you have absolutely no brushes! Even then, a sponge or fingertip application can do the job.

The shade I have here is Light – and for a lighter shade product it’s quite heavy on colour. Because of the cream formula (which dries to matte) it’s easy to adjust how much or how little you need but if you do snap this up, go very lightly until you’re used to the depth of colour. The good news about the Stila Contouring Duo is that the Deep shade is totally suitable for darker skin tones. It’s £31 and has launched at Beauty Bay HERE.

I love the new Stila Nude Interlude Balms – three shades for light, medium and dark skin tones – that are creamy washes of colour for the lip.

Shown here are Meg (light) and Elyssa (dark). Beautiful on the lip, very hydrating in feel and a gorgeous, pigment rich, sheeny finish. They’re £16 each HERE.
