I'm always up for purchasing a contour kit, I love trying them out and I think it's a product that you get an opinion on very quickly. I especially like trying contour kits from the high street, as I'm really keen to try ways to contour on a budget. After all, not everybody wants to spend £50 on the Charlotte Tilbury equivalent.
Maybelline Master Sculpt was released earlier this year; it's a black compact with a little window which lets you see the product inside. Under the lid there's a powder which is split into two halves, the contour and the highlight. The powders are labelled (incase there was any confusion) and have numbers to show you in which order you should use them. Under the powder there's another section, which contains a little brush. Like all brushes that come in high street palettes, it's really not great quality. I would much rather have a slimmer compact that is easier to store.
The contour palette is not particularly pigmented, normally I'd say this is a good thing, as it's good for contouring novices. However, this thing really is not that pigmented at all, so it takes a lot of work to get it on your cheeks. The highlighter on the other hand is gorgeous, it's got a bit of fallout, but it adds a beautiful subtle glow on the cheeks. I honestly feel like the high street can nail highlighting shades time and time again, however the contours seem to need a little help.
If you read the reviews online, people contouring for the first time really love this palette. However, people who are a little more experienced crave a little more pigmentation. Like all high street contour kits, it's great for beginners, but if you want something that packs a punch, you might prefer something different.
The Maybelline Master Sculpt retails for £6.99 and is sold in two different colour combinations.
