Limited Edition Niki Garret Contour and Highlighter Duo contains a Finely Milled Matte Contour Powder that is used to Sculpt the Face and a Shimmer Highlighter to add a Luminous Glow.  They are available in 2 shades, Shade Medium which is suitable for medium, tan, caramel and olive skin tone, and Shade Dark which is suitable for dark medium to deep skin tones.  I was sent the shade Medium which works well with my light skin tone, as long as I use a light hand.  I think in the future, Niki Garret should develop a Light shade for paler skin tones.

The compact is all black with white lettering, and looks very high end.  Inside, there is a mirror!  A bonus for on the go touch ups and application.  The quality of the powders are impressive.  The contour and highlight shades are very pigmented with an extremely soft and silky texture.  They blend easily into the skin, without looking patchy or muddy.  I like a more natural contour on my face and I find that the formula of the Niki Garret shades blend so easily that they give a nice natural definition.  The colour is easy to build up for those who like an intense contour, or wear lightly for a natural definition.  The highlight shade has subtle shimmer and gives such a nice glow and creates a natural highlight.  I’m very impressed with how long lasting the shades wear.  Overall, I’m very impressed with how well they perform.  Highly recommend!  This duo retails for $22.00 Canadian at Niki Garret

 The Niki Garret Limited Edition Contour and Highlighter 3 Piece Pro Brush Set includes the F1o which is a flat head contour brush specifically designed to create a precise sculpted look.  The F15 is a mini fan shaped brush that can be used to contour, highlight and apply foundation for a flawless look.  The F20 is a round shape brush that is designed to  highlight the face and is perfect for applying blush.  I am very impressed and pleased with the quality of these brushes.  They are very well made, and are as good as my MAC brushes!  They use quality synthetic hair, which makes for very soft bristles.  They apply and blend products perfectly.  The brushes are sold together as a set for $50.00 Canadian at Niki Garret

Overall, I am very pleased and most importantly impressed with how well the Contour Duo and Brushes from Nikki Garret performed.  It is always nice to be introduced to new companies that provide great products at reasonable prices.  Niki Garret has created a promo code exclusively for my readers that you can use when you purchase both the Contour Duo and Brush Set together and that code is beautydreammachine10%.  Let me know what you think, or if you’ve tried this line before! <3.
