So I bit the bullet and ordered the KKW Contour Kit purely out of curiosity – or maybe it’s better explained by saying I simply couldn’t stop myself. It was no surprise that I got hit with a massive customs fee (when will that family learn to pay what they should pay for international shipping?!), but I am nonetheless pleased that I was able to try it out for myself. Here’s are my views on the KKW Contour Kit in shade light with lots of photos and swatches.
I should start off by saying, there are a lot of things I like about this kit but also I few things I am not so keen on. Overall, I’m really pleased with it.
KKW Contour Kit Features
- Three piece set
- Two dual-ended crème formula sticks – one for contour, one highlight
- Dual-ended tool for blending – half sponge, half kabuki brush
- Rounded tips for easy application
- Available in four colour ways – light, medium, dark, deep dark
I really like the packaging. I am a sucker for nude packaging and this pinky nude is pretty chic and the sticks look good in my makeup bag. The first thing I noticed is that you don’t get a lot of product. This makes me pretty sad because I really like the formulations of the cream and I know I am going to go through them really quickly. Shame.
I would have preferred to miss out on the blender/brush tool, and get more actual product instead because I don’t really love it and would prefer to use a soft buffing brush to blend.
KKW Contour Kit – Light Swatches
On the plus side, the formulation is lovely. All the products are creamy yet light, and blend easily and seamlessly into the skin. I love both the contour shades and the highlight shades, although the shimmery shade isn’t quite as glowy as it could be in my opinion.
The shape of the bullets makes precise application a cinch, and you can really get into the areas you want to sculpt and highlight. As I have already said, it blends in so easily, without completely blending away and gives a very natural result. I have to say, I wasn’t expecting it to be so natural looking coming from the Kardashian camp!
I will definitely continue to use my KKW Contour Kit, until it runs out that is. I am not sure I’d repurchase because, with shipping, I ended up paying about $63 and then got stung with a further £17 in customs fees which makes it very expensive indeed. Especially considering there really is only a tiny amount of product. It just doesn’t seem worth it if you are ordering from the UK.
You can find the KKW Contour Kit range here although it has now sold out for the second time. Apparently a concealer kit is on the way next. Stay tuned to the our homepage for news and reviews of all the latest launches.
