If you read my latest high street beauty haul (catch up here) then you’ll have seen that I picked up the new Sleek Cream Contour Kit. I was so happy when I heard Sleek were bringing this out as I’d always wanted to try cream contouring but I could never quite justify the £39 price tag of the Anastasia Beverly Hills version when I had serious doubts it was going to work for me.

Firstly I just want to apologise for the lack of posts this month! It has been the most stressful month ever and I can’t wait to see the back of it. I started a new job about a month ago now and truth be told, I found it so hard to juggle a full time job, blog regularly and also have a social life.

I recently got my hands on the highly sought after NYX Blush in Taupe aka the perfect contour shade. For those of us not blessed with model cheekbones, finding a contouring shade to perfectly suit our complexions can be a task and a half! Too light and you can’t tell the difference, too dark or too orange and you definitely can tell the difference but maybe not in a good way…So, it was time to put down my beloved Benefit Hoola and see if the affordable NYX blush in Taupe
