Sleek MakeUP Cream Contour Kit - FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Hello ladies! How are you all? Today, I'm coming to you with a "First Impressions" post. I did a first impressions post before on the OSHUNwhite Teeth Whitening Oils. By the way, forgive me the delay but I just started to test the oils. Anyway, today's first impression is on the Sleek Makeup Cream Contour Kit. The only contour kit I own is the PS. Contour and Sculpt Contour Kit, which is a powder contour kit so you can probably guess that I'm both scared and excited at the same time.



Okay, so the contour kit comes in their usual Sleek packaging. I love the packaging, it's divine and travel-friendly because it's not too thick. Inside the box, you also get a small leaflet with directions as to how to use the shades.


I chose the palette in the shade "Light". I prefer this shade because I do have a light complexion even though I'm tanned and the other shades were a little too warm for my taste.


The concealers are quite creamy. Not super creamy, but definitely workable. They also have a lot of pigment to them. As you can see there are 6 shades in the palette. I would use the top row to highlight and the bottom row to bronze and contour.


Shade 1 and shade 2 are perfect for the under eye area. S1 has a yellow undertone whereas S2 has a pink/peach tone. Shade 3 looks like it would suit my skin ideally when I don't have a tan. Yes, girls, this is how pale I am without a tan. As you can see shade 4 would act perfectly as a foundation on my skin tone now. Shade 5 looks like the perfect subtle bronzer. Actually, S4 and S5 will act quite well as cream bronzers when I'm not tanned. Last but not least, the colour I absolutely love from the palette is shade 6. S6 is the ideal contour shade for my skin tone. It has a cooler undertone than S4 and S5, that's why it makes it an excellent contour shade.


Overall, I quite like this contour palette. The things I adore about this palette are the shades. So perfect and ideal for the skin tone that I have. The one thing that in my opinion that should be improved is the formula. It is not as creamy as I would like it to be. I hope it's as good as it looks. This palette retails for €13.99 in Boots, so it's not going to break the bank either.


That is all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post. Please tell me in the comments what other cream contour kits you use that are worth the money. By the way, I have my eye on the SOSU Complete Contour Palette but the only thing holding me back is the price (€29.95). Talk to you all on Friday!
