Beauty | The Perfect Product To Contour With When You Don't Know How To Contour.


I'm not a makeup guru. I'm lucky if I transform myself into a six out of ten after applying a little bit of slap. Woe is me right? That being said, I love experimenting with different looks & different products, but something I've always struggled with is contouring! Darn, scary, contouring! 

Where did contouring even come from? That's what I keep asking myself. But rather than run away from it, I've jumped aboard & have found a corker of a product, that even a novice such as myself can use.

Thank goodness for the Rimmel Insta duo contour stick!

The dual ended, almost lightsaber looking product has a bullet style contour shade on one side and a highlight on the other and comes in three shade variations, light, medium and dark. Naturally I gravitated towards the light contour stick, but actually depending on what type of makeup look I am going for, I can get away with all three - Which is amazing & so very unexpected.
As you can see from the swatches below, there isn't a massive difference between the three contour shades, they're obviously different to suit varying skin tones, however I was expecting much more of a contrast. Thankfully however they all work perfectly for me. The highlight shades are utterly swoonworthy. Honestly, they're three of the most beautiful shades. Light has a champagne shimmer, medium is more of a natural sun kissed glow and dark is a heavenly golden glow. What's not to love?
To apply the product, it's as simple as drawing the contour and highlight lines to your face. I love this part of the process as it makes you look quite silly. I've taken many a selfie before blending the product in, much to my friends amusement. But as you can see, it really is such an easy process, even a novice such as myself can do it.
The formula of both the contour & the highlight shades are so creamy! They're buttery, a dream to blend and are the perfect products for this time of year, when you're looking for a bit more of a dewy finish. I really feel like I've turned a corner using these products, which sound ridiculous as I'm a 27 year old woman, but they've totally transformed my makeup routine. Gone are the matte effect product & liquid lipsticks, out comes dewy skin, a summertime glow & glossy lips. I'm loving it!
The longevity of this product is amazing too, even more so with the new Rimmel Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray - It's really great! I can pop it on on a morning and not have to worry about the product sliding off my face during the day, which I'm sure you'll agree, is always a brucie bonus!

What I love about the Rimmel Insta duo contour stick is how easy it is to use and how they've totally transformed my makeup routine! What are your favourite contour products to use? Do you find it easy?

  5. Regarding inward and external excellence as independent substances is a fantasy. Since they're both associated at the source. Partitioning magnificence into two sections is in truth detachment. - something contrary to what excellence truly speaks to.
