I am really into Contouring products at the moment, and have wanted to try them out for a while instead of the normal Bronzer I’d apply on the hallows of my cheeks, so I decided to try out the Define & Conquer Contour Kit from Seventeen!
The Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit comes in two shades, Fair & Medium and I am using Fair***
|| Inside the Contour Kit ||
A Mirrored Case that contains a Highlighter on the Left & a Bronzer on the Right
An Information Sheet / Guide on contouring
|| Swatches ||
The nature of the product is Powder based!
|| How to Apply ||
I followed the guide of application as I wanted to contour my face in a way that would suit my Face Shape & the guide was really suited for an Oval face shape!
I applied the Contour on all the areas highlighted in the sheet using the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush to firstly outline my contouring areas, and the contour for my Nose!
Then added more contour products & blended in everything using the Real Techniques Contour Brush on the Hollows of my cheeks, my temples, my nose & my Chin!
|| Results ||
Overall I was not very impressed with the actual product, However, I should have not expected that much from a Contour Kit that comes in two shades & that costs £5.99!
You would expect your highlighting powder to contain more illumination for contouring purposes, but the Highlighter in the actual kit contains little – no illumination!
Whilst the bronzing powder is definitely the winning aspect of this entire Kit, it blends in perfectly and does do its job really well!
I wouldn’t really use this again for contouring purposes as I wanted to love this product for being a powder based contouring kit, but it just didn’t work for me! I’d prefer to use a cream based contouring kit! I would however continue using the Kit for setting my Concealer ( as the Highlighter doesn’t contain illumination and is powder based > So it will be good for this purpose ) & continue to use the Bronzer side as a bronzer!
But on the flipside I really did enjoy the fact that it was Slim, so it is really easy to slip into your bag & take with you on the go & even has an included mirror which is great ( You can never go wrong with a mirror, can you? ) !!!
I also enjoyed the Packaging, it does remind me of Nars, in the way that the packaging is All Black & clean! A quality of the product that actually drew me into buying it in the first place!
