New Topshop Contour Creams Review

Topshop Contour Creams

I love contouring products, I don't use them everyday but rather for special occasions. My preferred method is a good buffing brush and a cream based, cool toned brown for natural definition. Typically I use dark concealer but newly on the agenda is two new cream contour creams from Topshop which cost just £9 each.

If you are familiar with Topshop's cream blushes then both the packaging and the consistency of the Topshop Contour Creams will not be too much of a surprise to you. The Topshop Contour Creams come in small, matte black compacts that flip open to present not only the cream product inside but also a good sized mirror. In a nutshell? Aesthetically pleasing, well sized, easy to clean and robust. You can't really ask for much more in terms of packaging can you?

"Sculpt and add definition to the skin using our cream to powder contour creams. Our soft blendable cream contours to give a soft matte finish to the skin and creates sculpted shape. Apply with fingers or stippling brush to the hollows of the cheeks, temples, halo of the forehead and blend out."

The Topshop Contour Creams come in two shades: Sweep - a light, matte cool toned brown, best suited to light/medium complexions; and Swerve - a deep and again cool matte toned brown which is intended for medium/deep skin tones. Admittedly in pan form both shades look rather daunting but once applied they are fairly sheer yet can be applied in layers to create the colour intensity desired. Although cool toned which is far more natural than a warm brown or general bronzer for that matter both shades lack the grey undertone which I find desirable within contour products. I do have to commend Topshop for offering two shades rather than a one shade suits all approach.

Much like the Topshop Cream Blushes the Contour Creams are soft but not so much so that they melt with ease, they are firm to touch so you do not have to worry about over loading your brush nor fingers. As mentioned the Topshop Contour Creams are fairly sheer so you don't have to worry to much in your approach to application, thus far I have found that dotting my choose shade into the hollows of my cheeks and blending out with a dense, flat top brush to be the best method for me. Having said that the firm texture does lend itself well to the natural heat of the fingertips should you want to forgo the brush completely. Although not intensely pigmented they do layer well and blend with ease making them a great first step into the world of contouring.

You can find both Topshop Contour Creams for £9 each via Topshop - link.

  1. Wow..they look amazing. ❤

    I have been look for these contouring products.

    I have always used powder and I feel that powder makes you look dirty in comparison to cream.

  3. These look really good and I've been meaning to try out some cream products for contour (as they seem as though they might be slightly easier?) so I might have to give these a go. Dark concealer also sounds like a good idea - I hadn't thought of that! xx

  4. Omg I looove the shades. Both sweep and swerve. If only they were powder contours I would definitely buy both for the eye shadows! They are really beautiful shade for the eyeshadows.

  5. Loving the look of these, I've wanted to try cream contour but haven't found anything affordable to try with it. I love that they included a shade for dark skin tones, need to get myself to their store and see if it's actually dark enough for me. But thanks for featuring these! x

  22. These look like they have the perfect grey undertones to mimic shadows on your face! I always hate that contouring powders go for an orange tinge and it just doesn't suit my skin tone at all. Will need to get my hands on these! x

  26. Contouring scares the hell out of me, so I have yet to try it myself, however the way you've described these products makes it sound a little less daunting!

  36. The choice of shades is quite interesting, Swerve almost looks purpley! These sound nice but I have accumulated so many contouring products haha!

  37. The cool tones of some of these really appeal to me, it's hard to find a budget option of a non-bronze-y shade contour so I will definitely be checking these out!

  38. These sound lovely and look like a great contour and I really haven't tried a cream consistency so it sounds intriguing.

  40. These seem like a great cream contour option. Really like the fact that they are buildable so that you don't end up with a dark brown streak cross your face as soon as you apply it! :) x

  49. I need to try these out. I was never convinced by Topshop makeup when they first brought it out, but I recently got one of the lip bullets and I'm in love with it! It has definitely made me want to try some more things!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
