Contour Chronicles - Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette

Hi Everyone!

As a fairer skinned girl, I do struggle to find a contour shade that doesn’t pull too orange toned or muddy. So I thought I’d run a Contour Chronicles series along side my Concealer Chronicles. I’ve already posted about MAC HARMONY BLUSHERNYXTAUPE BLUSHER, NARS LAGUNA BRONZER & Makeup Store Eyeshadow in Masai. I thought I would continue the series with a new release at the drugstore - the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette.


As I’ve already said, I have fair skin but I think, when taking about any skin, undertone is also very important to note. I’ve yellow undertones; so don’t fall into the palest category, which mostly describes those with pinker undertones.



To keep consistency, I’m going to be using my MAC 168 brush on my face & the Real Techniques Duo-Fibe Eye Brush to contour my nose. If I’ve found a brush that I think creates a better result for the product in question I’ll be sure to let you know.


The shade I chose to go for was 02 Medium Dark. I have found that most drugstore brands seem to make their ‘darker’ shades more cool toned, which seems to suit me better.



Both the contour & highlight shades apply easily & are fairly sheer in pigmentation but can be built up easily to give more colour & definition. I like this as it makes it much harder to overdo & look too harsh or unnatural. I have been REALLY impressed with this product, the contour shade, whilst still warm toned is less so than many I’ve tried, making it more flattering on my skin tone & colouring. I would describe 02 as a light neutral brown. The highlight is great for during the day & though it looks like there are small shimmer particles in the pan, these don’t transfer as such on the face.


Products used:
Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette in 02 Medium Dark
NARS Tinted Moisturiser in 01 Finland
Estee Lauder Disappear Smoothing Crème Concealer in Light
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder in 01
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Eyeshadows from the Maybelline The Nudes Palette
NARS Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil in Kalamata
MUA Clear Mascara as brow gel
Bobbi Brown Blusher in Nude Pink
Rimmel Lip Liner in East End Snob
Topshop Lipstick in Innocent

I prefer a cooler toned contour shade even though my skin is warmer in tone! Maybe it’s to do with me also being of a lighter complexion – who knows! I have been really impressed with the shade of this contour palette, which also comes with a brush & mirror inside the compact.


Maybelline’s Master Sculpt Contouring Palette is £6.99, while the 168 brush & Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection are £27 & £23 respectively.

What product(s) & brush(s) do you use to contour with?

My skin-tone is similar to yours (when I'm not wearing any self-tan), pale but with yellow-undertones. Usually, the products I find work best for me come from premium brands, like Illamasqua 'Hollow' and Kevyn Aucoin's Sculpting Powder. I'll definitely pick this up from Boots, next time I'm in there :)

I'm very pale too, but with pink undertones.
I also struggle to find contour products without it looking muddy on my face! xx

It's all about cool-tones for contouring. I'm really fair with pink undertones and I'm currently using the Kat Von D Contour palette that I can't rave enough about.
You look so gorgeous in your pics, Tania.

I find the same Alice, I've never found a drugstore brand that works for me until now! Unfortunately I'm allergic to one of the ingredients in Illamasqua's Hollow but I'm hoping to pick up Kevyn Aqcoin's Sculpting Powder soon! Xx

I know what you mean about things looking muddy, I'm passed along a few products as I just can't make them work for me! Featuring them soon! Xx

I completely agree with you Sarah, I'm surprised by how many makeup artists don't agree though! A friend is sending the Anastasia palette to me but I might have to pick the Kat Von D version up too! Thank you for your kind words! Xx

Thanks! There are way too many warm toned products out there. This one is a great shade & you can't beat it for price! Xx
