Hello babs! I’m going to be reviewing a product that I have had in my collection for quite some time now so I have played with it quite a bit. Its the MUA Luxe Bronze & Sculpt Contour Kit in Light/Medium. There is also another shade in this kit which is Medium/Dark. I think I picked this up from Superdrug for £5 and it is also available on the MUA website for the same price also. I think the price I paid for it is very affordable for a little kit! (It looks as though the Light/Medium one isn’t on the Superdrug website atm so I will link the Medium/Dark one from Superdrug below as well as the Light/Medium one which is on the MUA website).
There is 20g of product in this.
The product comes in a plastic square packaging which has a rose gold lid and a black bottom. The name of the brand and product is in black lettering on the rose gold lid. The lid flips open and has a click shut mechanism. The lid isn’t the sturdiest so I do have to be extra careful when handling and opening it. Inside you get a little mirror and the first product in on top which you flip up to see the 2nd product on the bottom. The lighter shade is on top and the darker shade is underneath. The packaging is a little bulky in my opinion but that is down to having 2 products in 1.
TALC, MICA, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, SALCIUM STARCH OCTENYLSUCCINATE, SILICA, KAOLIN, SILICA DIMETHYL SILYLATE, POLYISOBUTENE, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, PETROLATUM, SORBITAN SESQUIOLEATE, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, BHT, [+/-] MICA, CI77891, CI77491, CI77492, CI77499, CI16035.
There isn’t a scent that I noticed from this product which good for those people who may be sensitive to scented products.
There are 2 different products within this kit, one is almost like a highlighter shade which is at the top. It does look like a nice champagne sort of highlighter but I just don’t reach for it. The one underneath is the contour/bronzer shade which I do really like. It is a matte formula which I like for contour/bronzer and its got enough pigmentation to give my skin some colour and definition. It is buildable also so you can make it subtle or more noticeable depending on how you like your contour/bronzer. The product blends easily onto the skin and doesn’t look muddy. I think this shade of contour kit could work well for fair to medium skin tones.
As you can see on the left side of my face there is more definition on the cheekbone and more colour. I think this could be used as either a bronzer or contour depending on what you look for in a bronzer or contour.
I really like this little kit and for the price I definitely think it is worth it. I personally would have just liked the contour/bronzer shade in here and ditch the highlighter sort of shade. However, if you’re someone who takes makeup on the go or are a freelance makeup artist with it then this kit could come in handy and if you needed the Medium/Dark kit as well then you’re only paying £10 for 2 little kits which I think is very affordable. It is fast and easy to work with so if you need to top up your makeup throughout the day then this would work nicely. It’s not my go-to contour/bronzer product but I do reach for it from time to time. If you’re on the look out for a new contour/bronzer to try and you don’t mind it being a kit then I’d recommend giving this one a try!
Thanks for reading!
