Contouring has become my latest beauty obsession - I love being able to completely transform my look and give myself some badly needed cheekbones!! After some trial and error tests with powder and cream products, I've come to the conclusion that I much prefer the look of cream contouring.
I'm so excited to share my new contour palette with you all - meet the Camouflage Concealer Palette from Beauties Factory UK!
I was kindly sent this about two weeks ago now, and I am in love. The palette consists of 10 shades, ranging from white to dark, ensuring that there is something to match everyone.
My initial hesitation about concealer palettes is the amount of shades you get - how many shades of concealer do you really use from these palettes? With the Camouflage Concealer Palette, I've found myself using pretty much every single shade for a variety of things - you'd be surprised how handy the white one is! I've been using it a lot lately as my foundation shades are a little bit all over the place at the moment,
The main thing I use the palette for is the famous Kim Kardashian style contouring method. I use the second and third shade of the top row to highlight my face and the darkest shade at the bottom to contour, then use my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to blend it out. I find using a damp sponge gives a much more natural finish than blending it out with a brush, and when using this palette on a day-to-day basis I prefer the look of a more natural contour.
The consistency of the concealers is beautiful - they're creamy and blend into the skin flawlessly. The staying power is also fantastic - I wore the concealers for about 7/8 hours and they stayed put all day without touch-ups!
Most of you will know the pain of putting concealer over blemishes or dark circles to discover that it has come off after just a few hours. Not anymore!
I'd highly recommend the Camouflage Concealer Palette by Beauties Factory UK, and at £14.95 you really can't go wrong. You can find the palettes here, and you'll also find lots of other fantastic palettes at great prices.
