Review: Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio

About the product:

The Smashbox step-by-step contour stick trio is an exclusive set of three ultra-blendable, creamy sticks that glide effortlessly onto skin for precise application with an even finish.

It is made for creating shadows, Highlight for reflection to pull features forward, and Bronze which provides a smooth transition that eliminates the look of harsh lines. The result is flawlessly shaped features from defined-looking cheekbones to a seemingly perfected nose to the appearance of a sculpted jawline.

Basic contouring steps:

Where to buy:

Available online (http://www.smashbox.com/) and at Sephora.

Overall:

If you’re into cream-based products, you’ll definitely love this one! It’s very pigmented and easy to use. You just need to draw and blend! That’s it! Pretty easy right? But if you have oily skin like mine, it’s better for you to use powder-based products than cream-based, so your skin won’t produce more oil. 🙂

I’ll rate this product 4 out of 5! 🙂

Again, what’s your favorite brand for contouring? Let me know!

XOXO,

Leah 🙂
