Contouring is not my favourite step in makeup. I avoid doing it as much as I can because no matter how well you blend and how good the product is, it still looks extra. I have avoided contouring for so many years and after seeing almost all of the Interestingrs contouring the life out of their faces , decided to give it a shot. Now finding a good cream contour product that matches my complexion is a tough task. Professional makeup brands like MAC & Inglot have contouring range but their prices are a bit steep. So I went to Kiko to check out their contouring range and picked Kiko Sculpting Touch Creamy Stick Contour.
Contouring stick with a matte finish. The formula is enriched with African walnut oil and soothing pistachio extract. The soft and creamy texture ensures great coverage and excellent blendability. It is pleasing to the touch; application is easy and precise. The product enables you to sculpt the face, creating plays of light and shadow.
Packaging – I like the twist up packaging which is quite convenient to use and easy to carry. The stick isn’t too fat and has edges which is great for precise application of cream on cheek bones and nose.
Shade – There are two shades available in Kiko Sculpting Touch Creamy Stick Contour – 200 & 201. I have 201 which is also named chocolate and quite suitable for my skin tone. It is quite cool toned and works perfectly for creating shadows.
Texture & Formula – Kiko Sculpting Touch Creamy Stick Contour is matte in texture. Formula is creamy and easy to blend. I go easy and then build up the intensity if required. When used sparingly it looks very natural, however if you want extreme or sharp contours you might have yo build it up.
I like it because it doesn’t make my face too made up. The formula is beginner friendly and blends into the foundation seamlessly without being patchy or moving the base makeup around. Also if you are a novice like me, using this stick will be far more convenient than any contouring powder since it doesn’t create stark lines on face.
Pigmentation – The formula is sheer to build able. In the above picture I have used it slightly.
