I don't know about you but I have a confession to make: I'm rubbish at contouring. I've watched pretty much all of the tutorials on YouTube and read all of the magazines but it's just not a skill that I possess.
However, when I was making a Superdrug order online, I came across the Freedom Pro contour stick. Even though I am the proud owner of a Make-Up Revolution palette, it takes a lot of effort on a daily basis. I thought the concept of a stick would be great for even a contouring novice like me!


To start with, the packaging might not be the best but it shows you exactly what colour needs to go where on your face. I know most beauty bloggers will know how to do this like the back of their hand but for those out there who don't, it's a great marketing idea!


I was unsure about what shade to choose so I opted for medium because my face is significantly darker than the rest of my body (it's the only part that I let see the sun!) and I'm glad I did. These two shades are the perfect colour for my skintone.



I couldn't believe how easy it was to apply either. The stick is just the right width to apply sparingly or you can make extra stripes on your face for a heavier look. I loved how creamy it was too; it didn't dry out my skin at all!

I apologise for the hideous nails!
Safe to say, this has been a staple in my make-up bag for a few weeks now and I will definitely be repurchasing when I've finished it. I think I will stick to using this on a daily basis and use my full contour palette for evening looks.

At £5.00, I genuinely think it's an absolute steal. It comes in three different shades so you can pick which one is best for you. Freedom make-up is also currently on a 3 for 2 offer right now in Superdrug and you know this girl loooooves herself an offer!

What's your favourite contouring tool? Do you have any tips for a contouring novice like me? Leave me a comment below!


  1. I'm awful at contouring too and tend not to do it really for that reason! This looks pretty easy to use though and for £5 you can't really go wrong!

  2. I'll be honest, I can't and won't ever retry contouring. I just can't do it. This looks perfect though, so I think it's a must in my makeup routine.

    Thanks for sharing

  3. I really want to try this! I've been loving exploring more from Freedom lately. I have their strobing/contour palette and it's great and really good value :)


  4. I keep seeing these around and get tempted but I was worried about how blendabke they'd be. Your swatched look fab, I think I'd have to get the lightest shade though!

  6. This looks great to have in your handbag for touch ups throughout the day or using before powder contour. My favourite brush for contouring is the Real Techniques contour brush and my Nars Laguna Bronzer! xxxxx

  7. I have never ever tried proper contouring haha! I'd find the little guide you describe super useful as I definitely wouldn't know which bit needed to go where! A fiver is a fantastic deal for a product like this, and it's great to know that it's not drying either, that's super important for me as I am prone to dry skin on my forehead. Thanks so much for sharing such an in-depth review!

  8. I'm rubbish at contouring and always looks like a muddy mess when I try!!

  9. This looks so interesting! I'm always on the look out for new products to add to my collection so its something I'll have to give a try for myself! Great post Sian xxxxx

  10. I don't think contouring is my thing, at least not the kind you see all over Instagram! I'm glad you found a product that works for you and at £5, it sounds like a steal. You should try out Sleek's cream contour kit, it's fab and just for another £5 extra you get different shades for different needs!


  11. ohhhh these sounds like it would be able! I love contouring, Anastasia contour is my go to but this is cheaper! I will need to give this a go xox

  12. I'm clueless when it comes to contouring as well! Think I will definitely have to look into this product, it sounds like it will be so handy for me

  13. I don't have a favourite contouring tool because I am hopeless at it!

    I will be giving this a go for a fiver though, thank you! xxxx

  14. I don't contour at all but the fact that there is a pro contour stick means it's something to try out! (: Thanks for sharing this.

  15. I like products that are simple and easy to use like this - I love a good contour! I may have to give this a try if I ever make an online order.
