Are you looking for good contouring products or would you like to try the latest in contouring, but as much as possible, wouldn't want to spend an arm and leg for products?

MAYBELLINE V- FACE COLLECTION IN DETAIL
V-Face features three multitasking products that either highlight/contour or contour/highlight/color in one travel- friendly compact. Products come in the shades Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.
These are the products: V-Face Contouring stick is one of the latest trends in contouring nowadays;
the products have a cream formula and come in a convenient, dual ended packaging. V-Face Blush Contour is the bargain among the three because it features three products in a slim palette; however, I'm having a hard time getting my brush into the highlighter and contouring powders because the pans' width is so narrow. V-Face Duo Powder is a contouring and highlighting kit to give you an ala-Kardashian contour.
The powders have a nice, soft, easy to blend texture with minimal fall out; pigmentation is medium to heavy. The contouring stick has light to medium pigmentation and feels soft, a lil' creamy, and dries into a semi- matte finish. My problem with the contouring stick is the undertone of the contouring product is a tad bit orange/red; I wish it were neutral or taupe so as to imitate the natural shadows on the face.
Generally, the products yield moderate color payoff so for Filipinas (even for the fair ones), it's best to go for the Medium/Dark shade selection to get more color on your skin.
MAYBELLINE V-FACE IN ACTION
Contouring stick blended on the skin
I prefer blending the products on my skin either with my bare fingers or a wedge sponge. The products look pretty natural on the skin.
Here's the contouring stick when set with powder. It looks pretty decent, but the redness of the contouring stick is standing out. :p To remedy this, I correct it with one of the V-Face products, specifically the Duo Powder.
Here's me wearing the Blush Contour set. I like this product next to the Duo Powder.
This is the Duo Powder on my cheeks. The highlighter has very faint shimmer and it lifts the skin without making it appear oily so I use it on the center of my nose as well. The contouring powder is a nice, decent shade of neutral brown. I use this to tone down the red undertone of the Contouring Stick.
The powder products hold up pretty well on almost all skin types; the contouring stick is best worn by those with normal and dry skin.
Overall, despite the slight boo boos in the shades, it's generally a pretty good contouring collection for its price; it's a great and affordable way to catch up with contouring trends, plus how nice of Maybelline to offer a contouring collection to cater to beauty addicts on a budget!
