Maybelline Master Contour V Stick | review



Where to buy: Superdrug | Boots

I saw soooo much hype about this product when it first came out and I just thought, another contour product... Then I got to thinking, I hadn't actually tried a new contour product since picking up the L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palette which didn't really float my boat. So a few days later when me and this baby made eye contact, I thought why not?! OK so this isn't the worlds longest review but it doesn't need to be either... I really like this! I did have to pick it up in Medium as all the Light sticks were sold out but I just thought, its cool I can style it out! (Hopefully).

The design/size of this product isn't much to write home about, but really, does that actually matter? It's black and sleek but that's about it - I doubt it would have caught my eye had it not been on a display. Anyway.. The product itself is suuuuper creamy, as soon as I swatched it I knew how well it was going to blend! I was a bit worried though and had visions of it just being way to dark for me and making me look like my 5 year old self, caught going through mummy's makeup stash again... I was pleasantly surprised!! 

I won't lie, the first time I used this I show cased it on Snapchat, well, the results were quite invisible. I assumed I must have not pressed hard enough/not used enough product. So I went back to the mirror the next day and thought "so what if its a little dark, LETS DO THIS", I contoured my life away. Resulting in me blending my life away... It worked! I've tried blending this with both a Beauty Blender and a Real Techniques Contour brush and both did an equally good job. 

This contour stick is a lovely product to work with, simply draw it onto your face like the work of art you are and blend to your hearts content! I do find the contour shade a lot better then the highlight, I just find that still doesn't really appear for me, but things could change! For a super blend-able contour stick on a high street budget - this is something everyone should try! Maybelline, I salute you.

  1. How cute is this review? "Like the work of art you are" made me smile! I really want to try this product out, I'm not that confident with contouring but it looks relatively easy! Might have to pick one up :)
