Hot or Not Wednesday - Maybelline Master Contour Stick

Hi everyone,
For today's post I wanted to do another review. Recently the drugstore have been stepping up to all of the new summer releases, especially Maybelline. I picked this up a few weeks ago and have been testing it our since. Let's begin!

On Superdrug this costs £6.99 but at the moment all makeup in Superdrug is on 3 for 2. You get 7g, which is quite a lot and you don't use all that much product at a time so I ca see it lasting a long time
First impression:
When I used this product I thought that it was easy to apply and easy to blend. It looked very natural on the skin and definitely lasted a long time.

I am not the biggest fan of this packaging. I like how it is small and compact but once I had used it, I put the lid on and it went too far down and crushed a lot of the product. This was a problem for me as there is now a crack in the lid, which means that the product is going to dry out faster now.

How do you use it?
This product is in stick form, when half of the product is a cream highlight and the other is a cream contour. You apply it straight onto the face and blend it.

What does it do?
With it being a cream highlight and contour stick it is suppose to enhance and refine your natural structure.

Which are my favorites?
I do prefer the cream contour side as I find it matches my skin perfectly. The cream highlight, is okay but it has almost like a matte finish and I would rather have it shimmery. I also don't think that the cream highlight matches me very well.

What are the negatives?
- Packaging
- Small shade range
- Needs building up for a very strong contour
What are the positives?
- Affordable
- Easy to blend
- Easy to use
- Compact
- Pigmented
- Long Lasting

Would I recommend it? And to who?
I would honestly recommend this to anyone, it is great if you are new to sculpting/ contouring. I would recommend this, it is a great product especially for the small price tag. 

Hot or Not?
Hot! Even though I wish that they would change the packaging, the product itself is great. I think I would repurchase it again and again, it is great and compact.

I hope you enjoyed another mini review. Let me know whether there are any new releases that you want me to review. Have a great day!

  1. i saw this advertised on tv and was wondering whether it was good or not! it sounds like a good product:) lovely review x

  2. I've seen loads of people talk about this over Twitter etc and it does look really interesting! I'm not usually a fan of cream products as I find they shift my foundation underneath but this sounds quite good! I hate it when plastic lids crack, usually because I tend to push them down too hard! xx

    1. That's what happened! I actually find that this product does not shift my foundation it just glides quite nicely above it.xx

  3. Lovely review, this product sounds really good xx

  4. Great post!I've had my eye on this contour stick for so long but I have always wondered if it was any good so I put off buying it! Thanks for the review! It's a shame that the product is good but the packaging isn't! I may purchase it the next time I pop into Superdrug after your recommendation! X


  5. i never try a cream contour before but it is sad to hear the lid went too far down and crushed a lot of the product :(

    1. It's so sad but at least there is still some product left.xx

  6. Oh this was a really honest and good review!! I love how you did it in points, rather than in chunky paragraphs, makes finding the right information a lot easier. I think this product is an interesting concept with having two products in one stick form. I've recently just been easing myself into trying more cream products. I love the look of the highlight xx

    1. The highlighter is quite nice, it doesn't work for me but it might work for you!xx

  7. Such a genuine and great review. I'm terrible when it comes to makeup, but this sounds very impressive! Hmmm... I'm actually thinking of buying it! Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend!
