I picked up two Artist of Makeup Contour Sticks way back in June at IMATS and thought it was time to do a review!
I have used the contour sticks on myself, as well as on clients and can honestly tell you how impressed i am!
It comes in a stick applicator, similar to stick foundations. I find this not only convenient but also hygienic, and it fits in nicely in my kit. The only thing that i am not too keen on is the plastic packaging, as it may crack from being bashed around in my freelance kit.
The texture feels exactly like a stick foundation, very creamy and easy to blend and doesn't feel greasy on the face. As much as i love the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate, it is sometimes too creamy and when blended out, it becomes very sheer. The AOM Contour sticks work slightly differently because it can be blended into the skin to give a very delicate contoured look, or it can be used in a way to make the contours of your face stand out.
I also like how Zukreat has put an expiry date on the back of the products, as we all know makeup items need to be thrown out after a certain period and how many of us actually remember how long we have been using a product for?! This is a great reminder on when to stop using the products!
Overall i am loving both products and it's an excellent addition to my kit. I am unsure how much i paid for the contour sticks but they were around £18? Zukreat will be launching her products very soon and i can not wait to start picking up a few more items. I have so much respect for Zukreat, as i have been watching her on Youtube for so long and i'm so happy that she is launching these new products. I wish her the very best of luck!
I thought i would share with you a contouring tutorial i did a while back using the AOM contour sticks.
Have you tried any AOF products? Thoughts?
