The beauty review: Seventeen Contour kit

Contouring is a trend that’s been around for a while now and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. However, if you’re a beginner or not a fan of harsh lines on your face, this product is for you.

Seventeen’s Define and Conquer contour kit is a powder duo with a lighter banana shade to set and brighten under eye concealer and a darker shade to define the cheekbones.
This powder is wonderful. It never looks blotchy or cakey and can be used alone for a subtler contour or on top of a cream contour shade to keep it in place and add that little bit extra definition.
The only downfall of this kit is the shade range. It only has a fair and a medium which isn’t helpful for those whose skin tone falls somewhere in between.
Otherwise, the powder is smooth, it doesn’t crumble or break easily and the packaging is slim with a nicely sized mirror which is perfect for touch-ups, or even to take your daytime makeup to evening glam.
I give this contour kit 8/10 and that’s for its lack of shades, because it simply can’t be beaten on quality and more importantly price, which is massively important on a student budget. It also goes to show that you don’t have to drop a lot of money to be a contour queen.
This powder is an absolute staple for any collection and is available for only €8.50 at Boots pharmacies.
