Contouring with Maybelline | NEW PRODUCT ALERT!

I've mentioned this before, but I'll say it again. The drugstore are stepping up their game when it comes to contour kits (and lets be honest the UK market tends to lack these sorts of products anyway).

When I spotted these my eyes lit up, like a kid in a candy store. A contour kit to add to my collection, and by Maybelline, which cost £6.99. 

The powder, called the Master Sculpt, comes in two shades; 01 Light Medium & 02 Medium Dark. I picked up both as I thought that the colours weren't that dissimilar enough for me to only choose one. Plus, as a beauty junkie I definitely needed both anyway!!

01 Light Medium definitely has more of an orange tinge to it, which immediately made me think that this wouldn't work as a contour, however, I was pleasantly surprised when I used it. Using my Nars Ita Brush I carved out my cheek bones easily, without having to use a lot of product - this is another bonus as it means theres also value for money. The colour, although slightly more bronze, worked perfectly to contour the cheeks without coming across orange. It would definitely work for lighter skin, but I would recommend working with a light hand to ensure it doesn't go overboard.

The darker shade doesn't look distinctly darker in the swatch, although it is more of an ash based brown which is perfect for creating that dark shadow contour look. This darker shade would work perfectly with anyone who has more olive toned skin and darker, although I don't think this would work for people with a really dark skin tone as it wouldn't be dark enough.

In terms of longevity, this sculpting duo really hits the nail on the head. The product will not budge from your face, at least until you want it to. Those moments when we lean on our hands watching the day pass by, or lie down and end up having a half an hour nap, won't have anything on this product. 

The highlighter in both of these palettes is more of a pink tone highlight, the highlighter in the darker palette is slightly darker than the other but not dramatically. They are definitely more of a subtle highlighter, but that isn't to say that is a bad thing, it actually leaves you with a glow that looks like its coming from within.

Overall, I would definitely recommend stopping by your local high street store to purchase these (you can just opt for one haha). Maybelline are really coming out with some high quality products that are getting me excited for whats to come in the future, as well as what I can play with now.

What are your thoughts on these Master Sculpt duos? Would you purchase one?
