Hello beauty geeks…
Here’s a makeup update …. Drum rolls, …. I have been attending makeup classes recently and I must admit there is a lot in the beauty world that I had little thoughts on. When my instructor asked me what’s my shade on contouring, I had no idea on that one cause I have NEVER done a contour on my face and I finally found a brilliant shade.
Who has picked this gem from @tartecosmetics ?
Its sold in Sephora – MYR 95.00 that includes two highlighters and one contour powder. It’s a compact trio housed in a slim, black cardboard palette that has a velvet touch on the outside and it is a portable highlight and contour palette. You can keep it in your make up pouch/handbag and what I really adore is it comes with a mirror on the inside. I would have been happier if it comes with a brush or applicator.
Highhlights: To begin with, both of the highlighters (Gleam & Burst) have a frost finish. Gleam is a light, golden beige with warm undertones whereas Burst is a frosted sheen and is a bright, creamy yellow with a golden frosted shimmer. I love the intense highlight it gives to my cheeks without any fading. They have a soft and smooth texture that blends well and doesn’t emphasize pores.
⇔ If you prefer subtle highlighters, then I don’t think this is yours.
Contour: ‘Chisel’ (sounds like a wind blow), is a contour shade that has a matte brown finish with warm undertones. It had good pigmentation with a firmer consistency. Due to it’s powdery finish it works well on my skintone, fairly blendable and super pigmented!
- Gleam (pearl highlight)
- Burst (shimmering sand highlight)
- Chisel (matte contour)
WHAT TARTE HAS TO SAY:
‘A highlight and contour palette with six pigmented powder and cream shades to create perfectly glowing, chiseled looks on every skin tone, without the icky, bad stuff.
Product Description: Inspired by makeup artist techniques, this portable highlight and contour palette helps you glow on-the-go using healthy ingredients. Designed to work on every skin tone, the three exclusive shades have rich, cool undertones to mimic real shadow and light reflection for the most natural look. Two intense highlighting powders deliver a buildable, microshimmer strobe, and the universal matte contouring powder adds balanced dimension powered by longwearing Amazonian clay for fade-free payoff.
These colours will work for someone who likes warmer/more intense highlighters and has use for the tone and depth of contour powder. If you’re looking for a new contour palette, and you’re a highlight/glowy skin like me, I’d highly recommend the Tarteist Pro Glow To.
This product can be found in any Sephora outlet in Malaysia or you can get them online here.
