Face of Australia’s Glamazon Contour Kit is back and is joining the permanent range! I wasn’t really into contouring when this contour/highlight duo first came out, but as I got into subtly sculpting my cheekbones and jawline and trying out different products, I discovered that the brown shade in this kit is perfect. It’s cool-toned, which is important if you want a natural looking shadow, and it’s sheer and smooth, which is important if you’re not absolutely amazing at placing the shadow exactly where you want it.
Compared to the old Glamazon Leopardess Contour Kit (launched as a limited edition around the end of 2013), the contour looks slightly darker in the pan and the highlighter looks slightly paler, but on the skin they blend out to be almost indistinguishable. The ingredients lists are identical, so I think there’s just a slight batch difference.
I’m not much of a highlighter person, since my skin is oily and provides its own highlight 10 minutes after I apply makeup, but I’ve been using the warm champagne shimmer on the tip of my nose and on the tops of my cheekbones, as well as mixing it into my everyday powder to add a subtle glow all over.
The compact also includes a large mirror that takes up the whole lid, so you can easily check if you’re going in too hard and turning into a weird zebra-looking clown.
The Glamazon contour duo is definitely a holy grail product for me – I was really kicking myself when I started loving it that I didn’t cotton on earlier and stock up. If this ever becomes discontinued, I hope they give plenty of notice so I can stockpile for the next 3 lifetimes!
Face of Australia Glamazon Contour Kit is $9.95 for 14 g and available instore in Priceline and Big W, as well as online.
