To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am pretty new to contouring and didn't want to spend a lot f money on something I wasn't confident with, so this was good value for money for me.
I found these a little wide and you get a bit of a fat line, but it does blend well - though you do have to build up the colour as it blends a bit too well! The highlighter could be a little brighter, but I like that it feels soft and creamy when used.
Good for the first timer or those who only use occasionally, maybe not for the everyday/pros at makeup/instagramers!
despite the reviews, due to having oily skin happy to have purchased this item. Its east to apply, but also has a nice 2 colour combinations; I have a pale complexion, the darkest colour can be too intense but when I mix it with the lighter one it is brilliant. stayed on for 6 hours, without having to really and looked natural. easier to apply and more visible to powder options.
I absolutely love the contour stick, it blends beautifully better than any of the high end brands I have used. I have very pale skin and I’d say this is very universal. And would work on any skin tone.
However the only reason I’ve marked one star down.. the light stick is too dark for me and doesn’t highlight on my skin tone.
Would love if they could either sell these separately or offer a lighter shade highlighter.
I am new to contouring so decided to take a chance on this product. It is excellent value for money, comes with great instructions on the back of the box, however I feel they are a little oily/greasy for my skin type. They blend and cover well, and I’m pale so the colours do blend to your skin tone, but as a personal preference I like less oily make up products. I’ve given this a 4 because it is perfect for teens or people new to contouring, has good coverage and is excellent value for money.
I personally didn't find that the contouring didn't last on a full night out. I have to layer up the contouring. However, I like the fact that there's some thought behind the product with it being cruelty free, against animal testing and a vegan product. It's a very fair price for a duo pack.
Wanted some chubby contour sticks (and blush) and thought these Barry M ones would be good as the brand normally is. Very disappointed, the makeup just smudges back off, pigment doesn’t stay and smears a bit. Tried using a sponge and finger to blend, neither make it work. Waste of time as the colour doesn’t remain. Don’t waste your money.
Very easy to blend, and can be built easily for a variety of strength of colour.
I actually think this blends super easily, but I do have a very moisture orientated routine for makeup (moisturise my face and then mix a Barry M Liquid Chrome highlighter with Macs Face & Body foundation and a tiny bit of moisturiser) before adding just the brown stick for contour - and it’s blends super easy.
I use my fingers to blend it out and it works very well. I don’t use very much at a time because it’s quite pigmented. It has to be worked and blended quite quickly as it can stick slightly darker where you apply it. I feel It has quite a matte finish despite being a stick - but I really tend to love a highly glossy look!
I don’t really use the light one because I find it a tiny bit waxy and I much prefer a lighter look with a tiny bit of pale concealer.
