I'm sure everyone and their mum has tried a spot of contouring, whether that be going the full hog, or just a subtle bit of shading, it's popular to say the least. I've always used powder contours which I love, but I really wanted to try out a cream formula and also one which wasn't too expensive. After searching high and low in Boots and Superdrug, I finally settled on the L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palette in Light/Medium, and I'm really happy with it!
If you're just starting out with contouring, or you want something more suitable for everyday wear, I would highly suggest this. You get a nice, cool toned creamy contour and a matte pale pink highlight. I have to say, I don't think the highlighting shade will get much use as I love my shimmery ones, but it's nice to brighten certain areas of the face.
As for the contour shade, it's a really nice cool toned light brown which translates subtlety on the skin. For me, I was expecting something that packed a bit more punch, but you can definitely build it up. I like how it's more of a subtle contour, it's super appropriate for everyday and it makes it hard to go wrong. I tend to use my Real Techniques Contour Brush with this as it's a great shape for bending the product under the cheekbones. I've also found applying it with your fingers then blending it with a beauty blender works well too, if I have time I'll go for that method. It doesn't oxidise on the skin and it lasts well. The areas I like to apply this are the areas you would typically contour, under the cheekbones, around the forehead and down the sides of the nose. If you really want this to lock in place, add a powder contour over the top to intensify the shade and make it last longer.
If you've been looking at getting into contouring, or maybe you want something cheaper you can play around with, this is so brilliant. You also get a lot for you buck and at £9.99, it's a great buy.
