First Impressions: Rimmel Insta Duo Contour Stick ♥

When i look back now to when i first started getting into make up. I was about 15/16 but contouring was not a big thing when i was young but then again, the selfie wasn't a big thing it was all about the good old fashioned Myspace photo when i was a teenager. The only make up that mattered in those photos is the 100 layers of black kohl you caked your eyes with.

Over the years though, make up has evolved so much. The young generation don't seem to have gone through the orange dream matte mouse foundation and concealer lips phase (which is very unfair, if i had to look stupid so does everyone else). One of the techniques which is used all of the time now is the contour and highlight. I will admit, i love it. Its now something i do every time i put make up on. 

Brands are forever bringing out new contouring products and i decided to give my routine a shake up recently while having a browse through Boots. I have been very faithful recently to my make up bag and have ended up reaching for the same stale products most days so when i saw the Rimmel Insta Duo Controur Stick (Light/Clair) i decided to give it a go.

I've so far only used this a few times and i haven't been that impressed with it so far. The formula is great - very creamy and easy to blend. The pigmentation on the contour end is great, it doesn't take much product to show up but i was very disappointed with the colour pay off on the highlight end which can barely be seen on my skin at all. If you're looking for a very subtle highlight, this would be perfect but i do like more of a bold look as i'm not a subtle person at all.

Overall, i'd give this a 6/10 as the highlight has let this down.
