Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Best Drugstore Contour Kit? - Maybelline Master Sculpt Controur Kit Review


Contouring has never been my strong point. I have always struggled trying to get it right. From my face looking more orange than the blogger icon to highlighting so much it's as if a light is constantly shining on my face.

I used to use the Bourjois bronzer and highlighter set but I found that after a while, the bronzer just wasn't as pigmented as it used to be. And my idea to get a new contour set was fully influenced by a few haul videos I watched. With everyone starting to mention a new bronzer and higlighter set to hit the shelves. From Maybelline comes the new Master Sculpt Contour Kit including a bronzer, highlighter, and mirror compact with a brush (in the shade Fair.)


The packaging for the product is simple, I am not a huge fan of the writing at the front as it does give off this cheap look to the product. However, the actual packaging itself is convenient, it comes as a little box almost that is quite compact so you would be able to just throw it into your bag without it taking up any room. I like that as an added bonus it does come with a little mirror underneath the product as well as a brush for application.

However, I am not a huge fan of the brush. For me the brush is too stiff and the bristles don't feel soft or nice against my skin. The mirror does come in handy for say if I am travelling I can just use the little mirror to quickly check my makeup without the hassle of having to look through the camera on my phone.

Moving onto the bronzer and highlighter themselves, the bronzer is probably my favorite out of the duo. I very rarely have to collect a lot to get the right amount I need, it goes on nicely onto my face. My best advice is to blend and blend and then blend again this into the skin as much as you can as it will give off a more natural finish.

The highlighter also works well, I wouldn't class it as amazing but it does go onto my face easily and manage to last for about 4 hours whereas the bronzer lasts for about 8 hours before some of it starts to fade.

The kit retails for £6.99 which in my opinion is a very reasonable price for a product that works as well as this one does. I have noticed that this is possibly one of the cheapest contour sets from the drugstore that I have really enjoyed. I didn't find any major issues or really any issues with this.

Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite Maybelline products. But I want to know your opinions or if you have any recommendations for other contour kits I should try when this one runs out. If you have suggestions feel free to comment them down below.

Until next time, Chloe!
