My Experience with Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit Ultra Light/Medium C04:
I always love Makeup Revolution’s packaging and it is always quite sturdy too. This kit comes in a nice sleek black plastic container with a clear lid. It closes perfectly with a tight click so I find it totally travel-friendly. Inside the box, there is a small mirror too. It might look too small for face makeup but I like this for emergencies. They haven’t provided any applicator or brush with the packaging but overall I really like this small, lightweight packaging.
I am not sure how many shades are available in the market but I have the shade Light/Medium C04. This shade is good for light to medium skin tones only. One kit contains three shades: one blusher, one highlighter, and one matte bronzer. The blusher’s shade is a metallic bronze with fine bronzy shimmer. It is a little dark for a blush; it is better as a bronzer for my skin tone. It gives an amazing sun-kissed bronze look. Next, is the highlighter shade which is a creamy warm beige shade with fine shimmers.
It looks gorgeous as a highlighter for all skin tones. And the last one is a beautiful matte medium brown bronzer. This shade doesn’t contain any shimmer. It is the only matte shade in this palette. It is quite darker than my skin tone so works perfectly for contouring but it will suit fair to medium skin tones the best. It has slightly cool undertone so it doesn’t look amazing on yellow toned skin. Basically it is good enough to create shadows but not for bronzing. As a bronzer, it makes my skin look darker. All the shades are nicely pigmented. The pigmentation is perfect for a soft contoured look.
Texture & Quality:
All three shades have a super fine and smooth texture and hence they blend easily on the skin. The highlighter and the blusher shades are easy to blend. The bronzer shade needs a little quick blending as it is matte dark shade. All the shades give a very smooth look to my face and they never look patchy or chalky on my skin. The fine texture of the powders does not dry out my skin. Also, the shimmers look absolutely perfect. The powders feel light and soft on the skin. I have oily skin and this product does not aggravate my skin issues.
The staying power is not the same for all shades, like the contouring shade stays for good number of hours and it never looks messy. Next, the highlighter shade also stays decently for up to 5 hours and it adds a glow to my skin. But, the blusher does not last long. It starts to fade after 3-4 hours and it transfers a lot. I need to use a good primer and a fixing spray to increase the staying power.
This is such a nice kit for contouring, highlighting and bronzing. I totally love the texture of all the products and how smoothly they blend on my skin. The kit makes my face appear slimmer and adds some definition to it. It provides a beautiful, sun-kissed look to my tanned skin. The staying power is the only issue.
