Smashbox Contour Stick Trio

 

 

 

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great day! Today I’m reviewing the Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio. I am really into these right now! I think they are AMAZING for cream contour. You never want to look muddy or patchy when trying to contour, and I think these blend beautifully & to make matters better they are really good shades! You will receive 3 matte contour sticks: a highlight shade, a bronze shade, and contour shade. The contour shade has a cooler tone in it which helps to mimic the appearance of a shadow. Remember when applying these less is more. Don’t go overboard because you can always add more if you need it, but its hard to take off without starting over. I love the idea of cream contouring because we contour to help shape our faces, and sculpt it… right!? We can all agree it’s not the same as eyeliner or lipstick in a sense that this is one thing we really don’t want to be noticeable, but yet extremely noticeable all at once (if that makes any sense). That may sound very confusing… but what I mean is that you don’t want to see the actual product, streaks, or a straight line on the side of your face. However, you want to see results. You may want to have Angelina Jolie’s cheekbones or a slimmer nose, but you want it to seem like that’s your natural face shape. Creams tend be much more natural than a powder will, because they blend into the skin and don’t have a powdery texture to them. That’s why I love to use a cream to contour. Sometimes I will do my eyebrows, mascara and then blend in a tiny bit of the contour shade from the kit and add some of the bronze on my cheeks as a blush and I will head out the door. I also love to use the bronze shade under my lash line and even as a cream eyeshadow sometimes!! It’s so natural but a super effective way to shape your face & add some color. I hope this helped you guys a little bit, Thanks 🙂
