Maybelline Master Contour V Stick Review

Contouring is a thing now, a really big thing. It's quite overwhelming actually, there's so many products, different textures, so many tutorials, loads of do's and don'ts.... Don't get me wrong, I love all this information, I don't know how I ever when out with a moon face of foundation without giving my face any sort of , I don't know -structure?! But finding a the right product for me can be tricky.


In the past I've used foundation or concealer in a shade darker than my base to contour and a powder with a shimmer to highlight, and it's always done the trick. Then I see these beautiful palettes around and I just want them all! 'These will change my contouring lif.


What a bugger they are to carry around. 
I needed something smaller, coming compact. Maybelline heard my cry and came to the rescue with the Master Contour V Stick.

It's got 2 colours together in one handy giant pencil-like device. One darker shade to contour and one to highlight. 

Providing you're concentrating and using the right shades (Monday mornings are hard) it's really easy to use. Simply swipe on the face and blend with your fingers, brush or beauty blender. 

Apply the dark shade to the hollows of the cheeks, along the sides of the nose and at the top of the forehead. Then use the lighter shade to highlight the cheekbones, centre of the nose, brow bone and under the eyes.

These come in 2 shades, Light and Medium. I've got 'light' which works perfectly for a natural  daytime look but I'm tempted to pick up the darker shade to use if I want my contour to be more striking or if I get a bit of a tan in the coming months.


These are great to keep in your bag, I like to apply extra highlight later on in the day to brighten myself up a bit so this is perfect for that. I'm a huge fan of anything that can streamline my bulging make up bag.

For £6.99 and the fact that Maybelline products are always on offer - it's a winner in my eyes.

  1. I was looking at these in the store, but I'm not too sure how the actual application works/will work when you use it up a bit, since they're both shades in one...Isn't it easy to mix both of the together if you're not careful with the application?
    The concept is really great though :)
