Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit Review

Hey beaut's! 

A while ago I picked up the Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit in Boots on an absolute whim, at the time I hadn't seen many reviews at all but was looking for an affordable contour kit that was easy to use on everyday basis, and finally I have found one!
The Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit is packaged in a thick, reinforced cardboard style palette much like Barry M's eyeshadow palettes. When opening up the flip up lid your not met with a mirror but instead theres an easy to follow, step by step guide which helps you make the most out of the palette, this is also great if your new to contouring because it really takes you back to basics and makes things very easy for you.
 The Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit contains three medium sized pressed powders, a highlighter, a bronzer and a contour powder. The first powder in the palette is the highlighter which I love, it's a soft, ivory coloured highlight that is about 90% matte and 10% sheen, the sheen isn't very obvious but it is most definitely there, theres no unnecessary glitter particles that some highlighters contain which makes it great to use as you would a normal highlighter but also to brighten underneath the eye area further after concealing.  The next powder is the bronzer which I've really been enjoying using, it's a matte warm toned bronzer which really does add warmth to the face, I love the fact it's fully matte because sometimes when bronzers contain shimmer or glitter it looks very un-natural so the fact Barry M's offering doesn't makes me very happy he he. Lastly we have the contour powder which is a matte deep brown shade with a some what grey undertone, I've been obsessed with how nice this looks when blended on the skin, the grey undertones really do help create natural looking shadows and it just works perfectly. I really have no complaints on the palettes overall quality, each of the powders with in the Chisel Cheeks Palette are very good, they all have a lovely soft texture, blend out well, are easy to work with and have great pigmentation.

Overall I absolutely love this little kit and have been using it everyday since I bought it at the beginning of February. I'd highly recommend it if your looking for a budget friendly contour kit on the high street that works amazing well at highlighting, bronzing and sculpting or if your a beginner to the contouring well this kit would be a great to learn with.

The Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit is available in Superdrug and Boots for £6.49, what a bargain!
