Review : Sleek Contour Kit.

Today I am going to review the highly raved about Sleek Contour Kit.

About a month ago I bought the Sleek Contour Kit as it was raved about and I was in need of a bronzer.
Sleek is not sold in most shop, the only place known to me that I can purchase any of their items in the UK is in Superdrug, I decided to get the kit in "Light" seeing as I am quite fair ( NC15). 
From first appearance the packaging is well presented, it is small, slender and non offensive, the packaging seems no matter how ironic this is but sleek, I can't fault it's packaging, I can easily be turned off a product for its poor or repelling packaging, this is not the case for this product. 
When opened I am pleased with the fact that the kit comes with a small compact mirror which comes in use when reapplying during the day or just to have so that I do not have to carry a separate mirror, knowing that there is one in this kit. 
The product itself I am also very happy with, there is more bronzer than highlighter, maybe there could be a little more bronzer than highlighter for the pure fact that I doubt I will use the amount of highlighter provided but I'm sure as long as I don't lose the kit I will run out of at some point. Never the less both products are well pigmented and the bronzer is not a orange tone or muddy. 
I apply the bronzer with my Real Techniques Contour brush under my cheekbones, lightly across my forehead and down my nose, the product is build-able but I tend to not use too much, just enough to give more colour to the face and make it appear slimmer, this is easily achievable with this product. The highlighter I apply with my finger on the top of my cheekbones to give a subtle glow to the face and to pull it up.
Overall I am delighted with my purchase and would recommend it, at £6.50 it's definitely a bargain compared to other well raved about bronzers, not only that but you get a highlighter aswell, it lasts a long time and it's easily build-able. The only thing I can  fault the product is that it does not come with a brush which would need to be bought separately.

Have you tried the Sleek Contour Kit? Are there any other bronzer's that you've tried that you like? :) x
