Who needs to do a duck face when you can contour instead?
Contouring takes some great cosmetics and some great brushes. Marcia and I have reviewed quite a few Beauty Junkee brushes over the past few months – read the reviews HERE – and today I am very excited to tell you about the latest set we sent to review, the Contour Kit.
I’m going to jump right to the price – right now it’s on sale for 50% off – just $25 right now on Amazon. That is one heck of a sale for a really terrific set.
This set comes in a sleek brush case 9.25″ W X 4.5″ H X 0.5″ D (expandable) that will fit up to 15 makeup brushes. It’s perfect for storing your brushes as well as for travel.
All of the brushes work with both cream and powder contour products. I am impressed with the quality of the brushes, particularly at that price! The brushes have copper ferrules with dual crimps, and the handles are wood. They feel substantial but not too heavy.
Here are the brushes included:
pro Sculptor Brush This brush has narrow, dense bristles with dome shape for perfect application and blending; flat sculpting brushes apply a harsh line and do not blend. I love this brush for powder blush and bronzer. It’s soft but firm and it blends like a dream.
pro Duo Fiber Brush This brush has short and long bristles for feather like application that allows for buildable color. Where this brush excels is with powder highlighters. It’s great for creating a soft glow.
pro Highlighter Brush This brush has soft bristles with a small taper point for applying highlighter to narrow facial features. I find I use this most on my nose – lighter highlighter down the bridge of my nose and darker contour on the sides.
pro Detailer Brush This is a small precision eye shadow brush with narrow dome shaped bristles for applying to small features, such as nose, under lower lip, and inner corner of eye. Yup, it works great, and of course it’s also terrific for applying eyeshadow.
pro Contour Sponge Ok, so this isn’t a brush – it’s a makeup sponge that is a latex free and flat angled blending sponge that creates an airbrushed finish with cream contours. This sponge is nice and soft, and the flat edge is very handy, particularly for contouring cheeks.
The bottom line? This is a wonderful brush collection that you will use for far more than contouring and highlighting. Be sure to pick this up while on Amazon it’s still on sale! – Lisa
