Barry M Contour Kit!

Barry M have launched an amazing 'Flawless Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit' currently exclusive to select Boots stores priced at £6.49. 

When I first saw a sneak peak that a Barry M were releasing a contour kit I was beyond excited. Contouring has really hit big and has helped pale faces like me get some shape and colour back to our faces. For me I don't remember what I did before contouring, I'm someone who need colour in my face to add life :) 

When I first picked up the palette in my Boots store firstly I loved the packaging looks amazing,and then when I opened it I was a little worried that the darkest shade in it was rather dark. Especially as im so pale, but since I have it on my face right now I'm rather pleased with it. The swatches on my arm do come up rather powdery but once on the face are fine and I would say blend in nicely but I have gone heavy on the contouring :) 

I normally use the Real Techniques Contour brush for my contouring but today I used the Real Techniques Setting brush to get more definition.  

I was nervous about taking pictures of myself as I'm no model but here in the first lot of pictures is me with normal school run makeup done with no contour or blush so you can see the difference before and after. And please ignore my hair as I haven't done it yet in these pics...

And here is after using the new Barry M contour and have added a Sleek blusher. 

As you can see I really need colour in my face or it just look flat and lifeless :) I mainly used the middle shade but added the darker shade along my nose and under my cheek bones afterwards to add more depth. The highlight shade on the left is lovely for under the eyes to brighten it up and I think this palette will suit all skin tones. 

So I'm really loving this new addition to the Barry M family and can't wait to try the rest of their new lines releasing end of February. 

Please chat to me in the comments. What contour kits do you use and recommend? Do you prefer cream or powder? 
Thanks. Speak soon. Karen x
