New On The Shelves | Maybelline's Master Sculpt

Maybelline have recently launched their new contouring duo, which they have called Master Sculpt. It's a small, compact square of which about two thirds of the surface being the contour powder, and the other third a highlighter. By lifting up the pan holding the powders, a mirror is revealed, as well as a thin brush, ideal for brushing under the cheekbones and down the sides of the nose or across the temples; its size allows you to be far more accurate than you would with a large, fluffy bronzer brush. When I use the product, I use the thin brush with a light amount of product just under my cheek bones, and then do a large amount of blending to fake a shadow, not a line. I really, really do love the brush it comes with, definitely a great addition to the product. It resembles the same design as that of the Nars Ita and Benefit Hoola brushes, and although the Maybelline brush may not be as soft or good quality, it does work well. For the extra features of the brush, mirror (and the of course the two powders) as well as what feels like sturdy, robust packaging, I'd say this product is well worth the £6.99 it retails for. (In my local boots it was also by one get one half price on Maybelline products, so that really is a good deal).

You can buy Maybelline's Master Sculpt in two shades, light medium and medium dark, although I'm pretty sure the highlighter is the same in both. The highlighter is okay, it's beautiful in the pan, but I find it to be quite sheer when I applied to the high points of my face. I do like it, but still prefer MUA's highlighter. The difference between the two shades of contour is that light medium is a warmer toned orangey powder, whereas medium dark is quite cool and grey toned, which is more ideal for contouring, especially for those who are quite pale skinned like myself. FINALLY, there is a drugstore product meant for contouring and not bronzing that has been made to suit pale tones! I've not seen any around before, except possibly Chisel Cheeks by Barry M, that aren't orange.

I would highly recommend this product if you are on the hunt for a new contouring powder, or if it'll be the first you've owned, like me. I've found it really easy to use, and I really love it.
