Review: PÜR Cameo Contour Stick Dual Ended Contour Stick with Contour Blending Sponge #PUR #purminerals #foundation #makeup

(product photo courtesy of www.purminerals.com)
Contouring is all the rage right now. And for the right reasons. Contouring gives the face great highlights and shadows so that you get the perfect light and shading in the right areas of the face. And you don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to do it either! There are many ways to achieve the perfect contouring. However, PÜR has introduced the Cameo Contour Stick foundation that has two colors and a blending sponge so you can get the light and shade needed in exactly the right spots. The Cameo Contour Stick is a Dual Ended Contour Stick with a Contour Blending Sponge. The Contour Blending Sponge is used to help blend the highlight and contour perfectly so that you look flawless.
This dual-ended contour stick adds close-up worthy depth and dimension to your natural features with a creamy formula that sets to a picture perfect powder finish. With the use of natural, light reflective ingredients that resemble microspheres, this 2-in-1 complexion innovation emphasizes the face’s natural highlights and shadow all while blurring the look of imperfections. Dark spots and fines disappear! As you apply and blend one or both shades with the Contour Blending Sponge, the skin absorbs in the skin-perfecting benefits of PÜR’s own Ceretin® Complex, a proprietary blend of hydrating ceramides and age-defying vitamin A. It is oil-free and petrolatum-free.

The Cameo Contour Stick comes in 5 shades so that you can get the right shade for you. It comes in Light, Medium, Tan, Dark and Deep. Light: Porcelain & Light 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup for fair to creamy ivory undertones. Medium: Blush Medium & Golden Medium 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup for medium beige with blush to golden undertones. Tan: Light Tan, Tan, & Medium Tan 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup for olive with yellow, honey with caramel undertones. Dark: Medium Dark & Golden Dark 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup for rich bronze with golden undertones. And Deep: Deep & Deeper 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup for warm with golden amber undertones.
Here are swatches of the shades. Note the highlight shades and contour shade for each stick.

To apply this foundation you use the Contour Blending Sponge. First, apply the foundation. Use the lightest shade and highlight. PÜR Tip: Always apply primer then foundation prior to performing highlight/contour technique.
Step 1: Highlight the face
  • Center of the forehead
  • Under brow bone
  • Down the bridge of the nose
  • Under eye
  • Center of chin
Step 2: Contour the face
  • Around forehead hairline
  • Sides of nose
  • Under cheekbone
  • Under jawline

PÜR Tip: To get the most natural cheek bones, purse your lips to locate your natural hollow area beneath the cheekbone and apply contour shade.
Here is a photo of me with the technique of the highlight and contour done, I use the Light shade as I have porcelain skin.
