So I have been on the hunt for a contour powder that actually works with my skintone for a long time. I wasn't even particularly looking on the high street but most things tend to be a warmer brown and I seem to need something with a cooler greyish undertone. So when Kaushal mentioned that she used the Natural Collection eyeshadow in Crushed Walnut to contour, at £1.99 I had to give it a go.
The packaging is standard natural collection. Plain white, with clear lids and pretty light/cheap as expected. It's tiny so you can chuck it in your make up bag but then I'm not sure how durable it is.
Now onto the main thing...The colour and tone of the eyeshadow. In short, it is perfect! I always thought I was doing something wrong before when it came to contouring but turns out I just didn't find the right product. This is a very cool toned brown and when applied to my face, it mimics hollowed out cheekbones.
|Sorry for the insanely perfected photo. I didn't realise my phone was on beauty mode and this is the only photo I had.|
So, if like me you're above lets say nc30 in MAC shades or have a colouring which makes warm bronzing powders look weird on you, then give this a go. If it doesn't work, you've lost £1.99?
A huge thanks to Kaushal for sharing her little secret. I'm sure you're all subscribed to her youtube channel, but if you're not, I recommend you swing by.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
