The Wishlist | Contour, Bronze and Highlight

A picture of contouring, bronzer and highlighters
It's been a long time since I shared a beauty wishlist, but over the past few weeks I have been completely obsessed with hunting down the perfect bronzers, highlighters and contouring kits. 

1. Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit, £35
I've only tried one contour kit before, by Sleek, and that was a big disappointment. Although the highlight shade was OK, the contour shade had a real muddy look to it and was impossible to blend. I know it's a big hit with a lot of people, but for me it just didn't work. It's been a long time since I've been tempted to try another contour kit and this gorgeous offering from Smashbox seems perfect! A 3-in-1 kit which works to add dimension to the face with 3 shades; one to contour, one to bronze and one to highlight, it also comes with a free Smashbox contour brush. It's a bit steep in price, but I've seen some amazing reviews of this kit since it's release, so I think it might be worth the splurge!

2. Kardashian Beauty Intimate Spotlight in Incandescence, £10.95
I have been lusting after so many products from the Kardashian Beauty range ever since it was first release, and I currently have my eye on Incandescene, a golden highlight designed to add just the right touch of light to all the places you want highlighted.

3. Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzer Duo, £7.99
Bourjois bronzers seem to be a big hit with beauty adorers and I keep saying I'll pick some of the range up to try for myself, but never get around to it. I'm finding it hard to resist the bronzer duo though, which features a bronze and highlight shade.

4. Nudestix Sculpting Pencil, £24
I'm yet to try anything from Nudestix, but they're a brand I see cropping up more and more in blog reviews. I love the look of the sculpting pencil which features two matte cream shadows for highlighting and contouring. Even better? It has a skin conditioning and moisturising formula with Shea Butter and Vitamin E. I'm not quite sure the contour shade would be dark enough against my complexion though, so I'm hoping to swatch this next time I'm near a Space NK!

What are your favourite products for contouring, bronzing and highlighting?

  1. I love my Sleek contour kit, it's a shame you didn't get on with it! I want to try the Bourjois bronzer and highlighter duo too, and I'm wanting to try the Barry M contour kit too which I've seen some people say is a drugstore dupe for the Smashbox Contour Kit!

    1. Awesome, I think I'll check out the Barry M contour Kit first in that case, especially as it will be nowhere near as pricey as the Smashbox one. Thanks for the heads up Emily! xo

  3. I've been trying the Nudestix lip pencil recently and it's really nice, interested in that Contour/Highlight pencil now! The Smashbox kit looks really good as well

  5. I do love the Bourjois bronzere/highlighter, just wish the packaging was a little bigger as I find it hard to get enough product on my brush. I've never seen the Kardashian range before though! Loving that highlighter, going to have a look at their range x

    1. Ah no, that doesn't sound good! I haven't spotted it in person yet, so will have to wait until I do! Let me know if anything from the Kardashian Beauty range takes your fancy :) xo

  6. I had no idea Kim did this...slightly intrigued I must admit! But I do love my Sleek kit.
