Contouring is one trend me and my round face are super grateful for. I'm not in to Kim K for a daytime but a slight contour is a must and cream conturing is perfect for achieving that perfect look :) Today I'm coming to you with my absolute favourite of the last few months - Makeup Revolution Ultra Cream Contour. I'm now ready give you my honest opinion, so let's get on with it, shall we?
As usual with Ultra palettes, shiny black plastic packaging hides away a large mirror inside. It is prone to become messy but palette itself is sturdy and I like it. I am still hopeful MUR will try and go into hardened carbon packaging which I find is better to store and travel with. I can sacrifice the mirror for the weight :)
Inside you will find 8 creamy shades, 4 of which are concealers/highlighters and 4 bronzers/contour shades. I find that I use 3 shades all the time. Top left and right shades for matte and shimmer highlighting and second bottom shade for contour :) I wish they sold them separately !!!
As you can see all the shades are super pigmented and creamy. They are easy to blend and don't disappear when you do so. I find that all the shades must be set with the powder and if you do so, they will last 6-8 hours. I really love the cool toned contour shade. It's perfect for pale skin girls with cool undertones ;) Also matte highlight shade I mentioned above works great on me, however it doesn't work with all the foundations. It blends nicely into my normal foundations but may look cakey on top of CC creams such as my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue.
I really enjoy using this palette. I only wish all the contour shades were cool toned, just different colour intensity from lightest to darkest. I can't use warm shades as they look too orange on me. I really enjoy both matte and shimmer highlights and I much prefer using creams to powder as they give very natural effect :). I like it a lot better than Freedom Makeup Pro Cream Strobe Palette(review here)
If you're on a look out for a budget friendly contouring palette - look no further. It's only £8.00 and available here and from Superdrug :)
