Beauty Review : Essence Shape your face palatte

Essence has a contouring palatte titles Shape your face, I have it in the colour no 10 Ready Steady Peach! In my contouring and highlighting post I mentioned that I improvise to contour my face so it was such a delight to try out a contouring palatte.

About the product

this pallate has a matte bronze,  a matte highlighter and blush. the packaging doesn’t specify the exact colour of each so when it comes to the bronzer you have to be sure that it is two shades darker than your skin tone just by sight scaling

 

 

Benefits

The matte bronzer promises to recede skin areas and the highlighter promises to accentuate them and make your best features stand out. The blush then adds a  fresh touch with its subtle shimmerl.

Review

Matte Bronzer

At first I felt like it is not doing anything to my face, I thought maybe the shade is not dark enough for my skin tone but after stroking it on my face a few times I loved what I saw. The contour looked so natural and dewy I absolutely love it. I feel though that it will not really work for people with way deeper skin tones than mine. but over all, it changed my over all view on powder contours it’s a keeper. I rate it a four out of five. Only because it will not cater for all women with deep skin tone.

Matter Highlighter

I feel that this highlighter makes me look ashy, I really do not like it based on the fact that I prefer shimmer so it gets a nah from me. I rate it a one out of five

Blush

I find the peachy blush shade sooo interesting. I wondered how it would look on my skin tone.  Its so close to my skin tone that I really feel like it does add the fresh touch to my face. I rate it a five out five

Over all this whole kit, I rate it four out of five mainly because of the highlighter otherwise it would have really gotten a five star!

and that is it for now.

See ya later

    The contour works very well with your skintone. It is hard to find a deep enough contour colour for darker skintones. I know that struggle

    I’ve been searching for local reviews of drugstore/pharmacy products that are as detailed as yours for a while. So glad to have found your blog!
    btw where did you buy your fan brush?
