To be honest we've gone off the whole extreme contour thing. It's been done to it's death!
That was at least until we got our hands on the new face contour by Tyra Banks..what hypocrites we are!!!
This contour however is not like any we have seen for a while. Not only is it in a handy twist up applicator but it's a beautiful cream texture which has the the perfect amount of slip on the skin.
It is available in a light or a deep shade. A lot of light contours creams are too golden for a fair skin but this has an ashy/taupe tone which blends beautifully in a lighter skin tone. The deep shade is much richer in colour and would still provide a natural contour for an olive through to deep skin tone.
We only have the light option to show you....
Product glides onto the skin and is easy to control. It blends away to a sheer contour which mimics the skins natural shadow. It dries off and lasts well. You can apply blusher on top and also powder over it if necessary.
To make the contour pop you can apply the Light in a stick highlighter to the high points of the face. Same application and texture but in a pearl sheen.
Would be a suitable tone for a fair skin but would look quite extreme on a deeper skin tone.
You can purchase these sticks individually for $25 each (around £16) or you can purchase as a duo of your contour shade and the highlighter. This set is $35.00 (around £22.00).
Sam loves these contour sticks. You can watch her use the contour stick in the following tutorial...
Disappointingly Tyra products are not shipped internationally so here in the UK and the rest of the world we will just have to nag at Tyra to launch them elsewhere. If you're in the States you can purchase these from www.tyra.com
