Collection recently released a contouring kit and as a loyal contourer I was naturally interested. I've been using my Nyx Taupe Blush Powder for contouring for some time now and when I saw Collection's Contouring Kit on offer in Superdrug I decided to have a change and try it out.
The set comes with a contour powder and a highlighter. You get a rather large amount of both products, especially considering its modest price. The set has a small mirror, which, while not big enough for applying a full face of makeup, is useful for quickly checking and fixing makeup while on the go.
The contour powder is a warm, mid brown shade. It is fairly pigmented and blends very easily. The colour is a natural shade, however it is slightly too warm for my colouring as I have very cool toned porcelain skin. Nevertheless it is still a very believable colour and can be built up depending on the level of intensity you require.
The highlighter is a very natural shade and can be built up. I am used to very dramatic, intense highlighter, so I had to apply a few layers of this to achieve the intensity I usually wear. However, it does make a pleasant change to wear something that is very natural and believable. It adds a natural glow and shimmer to your face. It's a gorgeous, pretty highlighter and I think it would look lovely with all kinds of makeup looks.
Overall I am very impressed with Collection's Contour Kit and think that it is amazingly good value for money. However Nyx Taupe Blush Powder is a more cool toned shade, something that suits my colouring. Nonetheless this kit is a very good buy and I will look forward to wearing it. I think the quality is amazing and I am so glad that Collection released a contouring set!
