Face the world with Define & Conquer Contour Kit by SEVENTEEN. The darker powder defines the face, while the lighter powder illuminates.
Get contoured. Get gorgeous. Use after you’ve applied your base to create a chiseled look!
How to Use
Step 1: After you’ve applied your base, use a brush to apply the darker powder into the hollows of your cheeks. Suck in your cheeks to find them! You can also apply to your jawline, to the sides of your chin and along your hair line.
Step 2: Using a small brush, lightly dust the dark powder down the sides of your nose.
Step 3: Apply the lighter powder to the centre of your forehead, right down to the centre of your chin. Also apply to the tops of your cheek bones.
Step 4: Using your brush, blend the powders, and you’re good to go!
I am sure you noticed the packaging is like Sleek or NARS. I am always buying contour powders and till now, if I were to club the amount, I would have easily bought a high-end contour kit :/ I am still avoiding buying Sleek contour kit.
The stand here for this brand is cute, I was quite attracted to it, it was double the size of the Rimmel stand here. 😛 They have a lot of products and I would say the price is quite comparable to Barry M. I quite liked the way this palette looked and the testers looked soft enough. Though I was doubtful that even the medium shade would be light for Indian skin, since the pale skin girls here were busy buying this kit. But I took a chance and for the price, I had to pick it up. The fact that it is a matte is so cool of course.
The kit comes with a guide card and a huge mirror too, I quite like it. The packaging is sturdy though I have not dropped it so far, but I do carry it around. The powders are not too dark but more suited to lighter skin tones. They have a lighter kit too and I have the medium one. the powders are all matte, even the highlight shade is like a compact powder, it has no sheen to reflect light. The lighter powder is almost like a compact powder.
The contour powder is a great shade but it needs to be built up for medium skin tones. Darker skin can skip this, lighter skin tone can go for it. The powder is matte. It feels smooth,but it is not particularly satiny or silky but yes it is smooth, it cannot be called chalky and there is not much powder flying around for both the powders.
The highlight powder is almost like a bright setting powder for me, I love to set concealer with it, it really brightens the eyes; but apart from that, the powder as a highlighter to add glow is a fail for me. The highlighter powder does look smooth on the skin, but I need to use a shinier powder as a highlight. The contour powder needs to be built up in layers to show up, pigmentation is good but nothing great. The powder is quite subtle, so you can contour the nose and forehead and jawline with this one. It is not stark to look at and it blends well, beginners can go for it.
The downside of the kit is the staying power, I can see it for 3-4 hours only, I have tried it on various kind of bases, foundation, primer and powder. It is hardly visible after 3-4 hours, I wish the pigment was stronger to stain the skin for longer. Overall,it is subtle, usable but not extremely impressive.
