Contouring is going to be a huge beauty trend this year. There's already a few contouring products on the market and The Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit is one of the more affordable options out there. For £5.99 you get a compact with mirror and two powders - a very light toned powder and a brown toned powder. I believe there's two shades of kit - light and medium. Word of warning - if you're picking this up, make sure you check the barcode area for the shade. Its in tiny lettering and theres no difference in packaging between the two shades bar the small text.
Both the shades of matte powder in this kit are ultra soft. They actually feel slightly like a cream rather than powder and they blend beautifully. With this kit, you get a little instruction leaflet on how to apply. If you're new to contouring then its definitely helpful to have a mini guide!
I've only really been using the brown shade in the hollow of my cheekbones. In the pan, it looks so dark but it applies much lighter. I only use a very small amount and blend thoroughly with the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush. Despite the fact I'm incredibly pale, this shade looks so natural. Its not too warm toned which is probably why it looks so flattering.
I've swatched the shades way darker than I would ever wear, so its definitely a buildable shade. If you're after a cheap contouring kit that looks natural and is long lasting then this is the product for you. Generally I find Seventeen can be hit and miss but I'm really impressed with this nifty little kit.
If you're pale and want a subtle contour then give this a go. Despite how dark it looks, I promise its a really natural looking product. It can be built up too, so if your skintones slightly darker then this could work. The range is limited with just two shades of kit but for pale to medium skin tones this is a winner!
