|Seventeen | Define & Conquer Contour Kit REVIEW!

I am really into Contouring products at the moment, and have wanted to try them out for a while instead of the normal Bronzer I’d apply on the hallows of my cheeks, so I decided to try out the Define & Conquer Contour Kit from Seventeen!

I followed the guide of application as I wanted to contour my face in a way that would suit my Face Shape & the guide was really suited for an Oval face shape!

I applied the Contour on all the areas highlighted in the sheet using the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush to firstly outline my contouring areas, and the contour for my Nose!

Then added more contour products & blended in everything using the Real Techniques Contour Brush on the Hollows of my cheeks, my temples, my nose & my Chin!

Overall I was not very impressed with the actual product, However, I should have not expected that much from a Contour Kit that comes in two shades & that costs £5.99!

You would expect your highlighting powder to contain more illumination for contouring purposes, but the Highlighter in the actual kit contains little – no illumination!

Whilst the bronzing powder is definitely the winning aspect of this entire Kit, it blends in perfectly and does do its job really well!

I wouldn’t really use this again for contouring purposes as I wanted to love this product for being a powder based contouring kit, but it just didn’t work for me! I’d prefer to use a cream based contouring kit! I would however continue using the Kit for setting my Concealer ( as the Highlighter doesn’t contain illumination and is powder based > So it will be good for this purpose ) & continue to use the Bronzer side as a bronzer!

But on the flipside I really did enjoy the fact that it was Slim, so it is really easy to slip into your bag & take with you on the go & even has an included mirror which is great ( You can never go wrong with a mirror, can you? ) !!!

I also enjoyed the Packaging, it does remind me of Nars, in the way that the packaging is All Black & clean! A quality of the product that actually drew me into buying it in the first place!

  2. I’m a total newbie when it comes to contouring. It’s a shame this one wasn’t so great, the Smashbox contour looks lovely but I think I should play about with a cheaper option before I invest in it!

    • Actually I think I’ll try the same and maybe go for a Makeup Revolution one to try out first!!! Then I’ve actually had my eyes on the Smashbox one I’ll defo try it out 🙂 xoxox

  3. This sounds and looks amazing! I have never heard of the brand “seventeen” before and love my RT brushes they are the best I have ever used! x

  4. Oh I was disappointed with this one too! 😦 a shame because the price was an absolute bargain! x

  5. Great review Serene! The color looked good in the packaging but I guess the effect is different when applied on. That’s why I love reading your candid reviews dear! 🙂 xo~ Lena

    • Thanks Lena, that means a lot 🙂 I loved the packaging it was so modern & clean but it really did disappoint me! I was wowed before by cheaper brands but on this occasion it didn’t prove me right! :-p I guess I’ll have to stick with Smashbox for contouring !!! xoxox

  6. I’ve been thinking about trying this but I think I’ll give it a miss! Such a disappointment about the highlighter!

    • I’d give it a miss too, only because the highlighter doesn’t do the job it was meant to actually do! I’d really try the makeup Revolution one! The Cover & Conceal works for concealing / Contouring & I’d prefer a cream based contouring kit in all honesty!!! xoxox

  7. This is such a great post!! Wish I could so a better job of contouring! Will learn from you, though!! xoxo

  8. you’re right the contour looks really nice! and seems very blendable 🙂

    • 🙊🙉🙈 do you really think so? I found it blends in amazingly but the Highlighter was a slight Dissapointment but overall it was An OK contour kit 🙂 xoxo thanks Annie !!!!

  9. It’s such a shame you didn’t like this product! I don’t do much contouring but I’ll be giving this a miss. Hope you find a better product than this. Great review though! 🙂 x xx

    • Thanks Rachel, I haven’t done much contouring either in the past, and this was possibly my first experience with a product unfortuantely it was the wrong product to try!!! I will definitely try out a different product in the future!!! 🙂 xoxox

  10. The one from sleek which around the same price is amazing! Definitely try that. So glad i’ve seen this review nearly picked it up the other at boots with everything being 3 for 2! X

    • No way, I really don’t think you should get it! It was on offer when I bought it too & it was on the recommended section in boots!! so I thought it would be good! However, I was dissapointed I’ve heard about the sleek one! I’m definitely going to try it out 🙂 thanks Lovely you’ve helped me on getting a better idea of what Contouring kit I should try next xoxoxo 🙂

  11. I’ve had my eye on this but I’m so glad I haven’t picked it up! I love my Sleek one anyways :’) Always love your posts x

    TR’s Thoughts

    • Thank you Lovely!!! 🙂 It seemed like a good choice, But I guess testing out is the only way you’ll know if a product will work for you! I need to try this sleek one, everyones been telling me how amazing it is :-p !!! You’re so Lovely thanks for the kind comments!!! xoxox

  12. I love kits like this, they are great for travelling! It’s a shame the highlight didn’t have more luminosity though 😦

    • I love kits too, they make everything much more useful! 🙂 I am a bit gutted that the highlighter wasn’t a good aspect of the product, however at least I’ll use it for other purposes hehehe 🙂 a sad and happy moment! Thanks karen !!! Xoxox

  13. Looks amazing! I will have to try it!

  14. Awesome! I love seeing people’s contouring techniques. Looks lovely! 🙂

    • Thanks Lovely, Does it really make a difference maybe I was wrong to dismiss it completely I do love the bronzing aspect of the kit & that has helped in the contouring!! Whilst the Highlighting side was a bit of a fail! Xoxox thanks lovely 🙂

  15. The contour kit looks pretty impressive for 6 pounds. And gotta love RT brushes, I have both in my collection. 🙂

  19. Oh no, it’s so annoying when products don’t work out as well as they look. Great review though!!
