The hype of contouring is steadily reaching every corner of the world making each and every makeup brand create their own contouring palettes and compacts. And I’m happy to say that Maybelline has recently launched their new contouring compact with both – contour and highlighting shades.
Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour (£6.99 or $11.00) is the 2-in-1 contouring powder. A highlighter and contour blush in 2 expertly coordinated shades for a sculpted look.
Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour comes in a black square glossy plastic compact that contains both – the contour pan (with a highlighter and contouring powders) and a brush, that is located underneath. Moreover, you also get a full-sized mirror on the opposite site of the powder that might be useful on the go.
The brush overall is somewhat rough and I wouldn’t normally reach for it. But as a travel brush it works just fine in terms of applying powder and blending out the edges.
The powder sectors are not even. The contour shade account for two thirds of the pan, when the highlighting shade has only one third. The overall amount of product you get is 9 g. The contour shade is warm-toned muted light brown with very subtle golden sheen that is barely visible on the skin. The highlighter is very light milky champagne color with finely milled golden glitter.
Both powders are not intensely pigmented making this contouring compact a perfect choice for makeup beginners. The shade I own is 01 Light/Medium that would suit fair to medium skintones and it looks great on both my normal and tan skin that is NW20/NW35. I really like how it looks on the tan skin (on the photo above) as golden sheen, that both powders have, really does compliment the sun-kissed skin.
I personally think this powder is a very descent budget-friendly alternative to more higher-end contouring palettes. Both powders are very bendable and the shades are quite universal that is perfect for starters. I also like how compact and travel friendly it is and would definitely choose it over bulky contouring palettes I own. If you are looking for an affordable contouring palette or a compact and want to try contouring out of curiosity that is the product to check out.
