My Thoughts On Maybelline v-Face Duo Stick
I just like simple make up that evens my skin tone, gives natural look. I just off for shimmer and glitter and metallic look. I like to keep it simple when it comes to make up and after a really long time I invested in something like this contour and highlighter.
If you are looking for something that really gives you a more natural look and enhance the glow then I am sure you will love this. Why am I saying so? It’s because the formula is creamy but turns a little powdery and superbly blends into the skin. I didn’t even required a brush or a blender to blend it, coz it was so creamy just with a finger with one or two strokes and its done.
Contour is not so pigmented, so if you have a dusky skin tone you will not find it useful in sculpting. For me it was just a shade darker to my skin tone, it didn’t give me a sharp look but it was a very light contour. And for my friend, whom I insisted to try it on, she said it worked more of a concealer as she has one tone dark than my skin.
As for the highlighter, its wonderful ✨😍. As I mentioned above, I never liked highlighter or shimmer or bronzer before. But I was impressed the way this highlighter glided on my cheeks gave them a beautiful glow without overpowering effect, it looked more of a natural glow. It gives the correct shine or shimmer to your cheeks.
