My Experience with Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour Face Contouring Kit Light to Medium:
I was searching for an easy to carry kit so that while travelling I do not need to carry all the individual makeup items. After searching through various items I decided to go with Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Contour Kit as makeup products from Maybelline are best for every day use and affordable too. This kit has a contour powder, a blush and a highlighter. It comes in a black plastic palette with a transparent lid.
The colors are placed beautifully, slightly slanted on one side (rhombus shape). It also comes with an angular brush, which is not of much use, but I think brushes in such kits are generally like this. So it doesn’t bother me. It has a powder like texture and does not feel cakey, but the staying power is less. If you want your makeup to stay all day, you can use a cream based blush, highlighter or contour stick and apply this powder on top of it. This trick will definitely increase the longevity.
This powder is on average side as it is very less pigmented and requires a lot of build up to show up on the face. I have also used the Medium to Deep Kit and the contour powder in that kit is on the darker side and better even for fair skin. This is a matte powder and good enough if you want a natural look for office/college. I think the angular brush inside the kit cannot be used for applying anything other than this powder.
It is a light pink shade and great for every day makeup looks. It looks very natural with perfect pigmentation which can be build up if required. It is a matte powder and has no shimmer in it as compared to the Medium to Deep kit; that one has a lot of shimmer/glitter, which I personally don’t like. For blush, I would always go for this one in the Light to Medium kit.
This is a champagne shade highlighter. This gives a natural glow to the face and does not look overpowering. This one is great for everyday use, but if you specifically want it for parties, then I would recommend topping this highlighter powder on some other cream based or stick highlighter.
It is a good option for regular use or if you want a very subtle makeup look but, again, I think there are better options available in the market.
