These are nice however not worth the price. It's just an extra step in my makeup routine that is pretty unneccessary.

Love this product! They are super creamy and blendable and looks so natural! It comes with three sticks - highlight, contour and bronze. The highlight stick is amazing - it does not crease under my eyes and subtly highlights giving you that nice and awake appearance. The contour stick is my favourite - such a good shade and honestly creates such a natural shadow. So much easier to use then a powder contour in my opinion. And the bronze shade - also great. Sometimes i will just use the bronze shade by its self to "naturally" bring colour back into my face. The only thing that I do not like is that you can not buy the sticks separately - I have used so much more of my highlight stick then either the contour and bronze stick, but in order to buy the highlight stick I have to buy all three (which is not cheap)? Also it comes with its own sharpener and the lady at Mecca said that no other sharpener will work for these so its really important that you do not lose it! Other then that I love it, definitely worth the money.

The sticks are easy to blend and work on my NC30 skin. These are nice for experimenting with contouring for beginners. I like them but I will not buy them again, because they are expensive, they use up fast, and you will hate the sharpening! For the price Smashbox should have made twist up pencils and sell them separate not just in a kit. Because you will use up the highlighter pencil much faster than the other two (contour & bronzer stick).

Smashbox Contour Stick Trio

Rating: 4.5 out of 5





These sticks are lovely - the shades are excellent and they are easy to blend (especially if you put a decent foundation or primer to even out your skin). They are good for day contouring but I would use liquid foundation for evening contouring look just for a better and more flawless finish. They are quite expensive for a brand like Smashbox - I wouldn't say the quality matches the price plus they get used up pretty quickly which is annoying. For a similar price, you can buy Clinique's twist up contour sticks and quality-wise these are far superior to Smashbox. Also you don't need to buy Clinique's sticks in a set - they are available for purchase individually. So, overall, good product but:

1. I wish they sold the sticks separately

2. Not worth the price

3. Good finish for daytime look

I really do love these, but they're awfully pricey and seem to dwindle down pretty quickly. They blend very easily. I'd really recommend these for beginners. idk if I would buy again just because the product doesn't seem to last very long for the price you pay. when you sharpen them, the sticks shorten dramatically. very good colors though.

LOVE THIS! Firstly the packaging is great! Comes in a portable sized box, includes a sharpener for the pencils too which is so handy and necessary considering this is quite a pricey product. Price is the only thing that bugs me about this product it could really be 25 but its 35, it looks like it'll run out quite soon too which is a little concerning.

Anyway heres why I love it. They are so creamy! I apply this on top of foundation and concealer, I used the guide provided to find my shape face and contour accordingly which is great because I don't know what i want to accentuate about my face, I just know i was a skinnier nose and nice cheekbones. The guide is excellent. The colours are ideal for me, I have brown skin, NC 30 Mac shade. The contour colour isn't too harsh, the bronze is just the right amount and the highlight is light enough to act as a highlighter. The creamy sticks blend so beautifully into a liquid foundation that they create seamless lines and don't appear harsh or fake! The highlight isn't very glossy, just light so if I'm going out at night ill mix it with moonbeam by benefit for a iridescent glow.

Blends beautifully, can be subtle or not depending on how much of the contour + bronze you apply. Completely changes the look of your face, looks so professional and complements dewy or matte finish foundation! Doesn't disappear of powder is buffed on top.

LOVE this contour set. Wouldn't even want to try any other powders, these creamy sticks go on beautifully, and is so easy to use and last all day. Perfect shades and application every time. Some say it is expensive. Everything is darn near, but these you sharpen, so they should last 5-6 months I hear. Some say that they last a month - those girls are using WAY too much. I would love to see photos of how they are using these because that is ridiculous.
HIGHLY recommend. ** Use a brush to blend, not your fingers!

For those of you who may not know, I am totally obsessed with contouring. Even if I am having a �no make-up, make-up day� or doing a 5-minute make-up routine I still need a touch of contour. Needless to say if there is a new quick way to contour, bronze and highlight I am instantly drawn in�introducing the Smashbox Contour Trio. These are cream based crayons or jumbo pencils in a dark brown with a grey undertone for contour, a brown with an orange undertone to bronze and an ivory nude shade to highlight. They are very creamy so glide on easily and blend really well, I have found cream products last longer anyway and these you can build up for a stronger contour if you wish. They feel very lightweight so I was comfortable using these in 40 degrees heat on holiday (no make-up melting at all!)
