I have a really round face and am always looking for a product that achieves a natural-looking contour. I believe I have found my perfect product in Tarte Cosmetics The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer. They took their Park Avenue Princess bronzer and made it into an extremely blend-able cream bronzer in the form of a chubby pencil. The chubby pencil strikes again, but not a lipgloss/lipstick this go round. Don’t get me worng, I am a huge fan of the chubby pencil and I am actually excited to see it transfer over into other areas of cosmetics.
“The Slenderizer creates the illusion of high, chiseled cheekbones in seconds. This artistry-inspired stick glides across skin, applying lightweight, non-sticky color that blends flawlessly into all skintones. It is ideal for slimming the neck, jawline, and nose.” – Tarte Cosmetics
In the past I have had to rely on a brush to deliver a good contour and now Tarte has created a product that delivers precision without the NECESSITY of the perfect brush. You may still feel the need to blend it in with a brush but I used my fingers in the image below and I feel that I still achieved a great result. Do forgive the fact that my neck looks like 20 shades lighter than the rest of me though, I assure you I am the same color. I have to blame that on the lighting or something. I showed my husband these photos before I uploaded them and he confirmed that I look normal in person! LOL
Anyway, there is a NOTICEABLE difference from the first picture to the 3rd. My face is completely round and transforms into a heart shape. I assure you I did nothing else but use Tarte The Sculptor.
