Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit Review | Rubbish or Repurchase?!

I purchased the Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit and I admit, it was an impulse buy. At £35 it isn’t the cheapest out there so I thought i’d do a review to help you decide IS IT WORTH IT?!

Includes a contour shade, bronzer and highlighter.

It promises to “define your cheekbones and to blend in warmth”. That it does. Despite this product being a powder, it is creamy and very bendable. It comes with a free brush however the brush is awful quality and can make the product appear choppy on your face. I used the brush once and now it lives in my handbag as a ‘it’s there if I need a brush’.


The packaging is very sleek and compact which I love and the product comes with a detailed instruction manual on how to use the product and how to apply it depending on your particular face shape – which I was quite impressed by.

Due to my very fair skin, I am unable to use the highlighter as a highlight but it makes a good base eyeshadow or a finishing powder to my face after applying my makeup. Unfortunately the product only comes in one shade.

The contour shade (left) isn’t grey or muddy looking which have been the most problematic for me in the past. It looks very natural and defines my cheekbones very nicely.

Would I recommend this product? YES!
