Contouring is definitely having a bit of a beauty moment as many of us strive for Kardashian worthy sculpted cheekbones. The art of contouring is still relatively new to me but the more I've tried the more I have enjoyed trying to enhance my barely there cheekbones giving a more defined structure. 

So when I heard that Clinique were expanding on their Chubby Stick range and releasing a contour addition to say I was intrigued was an understatement. As someone with non-exsistent cheekbones and a round face I'm always looking for a foolproof cheat to give the appearance of sculpted cheeks. The Clinique Sculpting Contour Chubby Stick is described as a creamy contouring stick which creates the illusion of depth whilst making areas appear to recede with a long wearing oil-free formula. 

To apply all I do is simply swipe the stick across the areas on my face where shadows would naturally fall, and this includes swiping in a three motion across my temples, under my barely there cheekbones and jawline and across the sides of my nose. I find that this blends really easily when using my trusty Real Techniques Sculpting brush, leaving just a subtle hint of colour which is perfect for daytime, and if I want to go for a little more definition I will lightly go over the area and build the colour until I'm happy with the look - and boy does it work when I look back in the mirror I can start to see definition in my face, hello cheekbones!

Formula wise the contour chubby stick is very similar to other Clinique chubby stick products meaning that the formula is really creamy, soft and easy to blend, yet applies matte on the skin which is the perfect combination for conquering two minute contouring. When applied to the skin you don't have to worry about this fading quickly, instead this lasts around 8 hours without fading - even on my oily skin.

Don't be put off by the colour of this sculpting contour stick, as I must admit when I first swatched it, it did look a little scary as it's a very rich pigmented warm brown and was a little scared that I'd end up looking a little orange. However when applied on the skin this blends really easily into the skin to leave either a natural finish or you can build it up for a more defined and sculpted look - so if you are a little heavy handed like me don't worry as you can salvage your handy work. 

The chubby stick design packaging makes this the perfect option for those who are new to contouring or looking for something to take on the go. The stick is the perfect size to fit in the hollows of your cheeks, so suck in those cheeks and swipe the chubby stick from your ear to around halfway down your cheeks and then blend out for a foolproof contour. 

For £19 this may seem a little expensive compared to the many contour products now available on the market, but I think because of ease of application, as this can be blended without a brush and just your fingers this is a really great product and worth the money as you don't really need a lot with it being so highly pigmented.

Overall I think that this is a great contouring product for those who are just getting into the art of contouring, especially because it is a cream formula which means that it is not only easy to apply but blends easily so you are left without harsh lines and instead a natural looking contour.
