Company’s Description

Inspired by the girl who wants to pose like a model while sculpting and chiseling her best features. Key-ar-oh-scoo-roh, or the art of creating shadow and light.

em Cosmetics is a new makeup line created by Michelle Phan. The line includes the Chiaroscuro Contour And Highlighter Stick, which is a cream-formulated product with a highlighter on one end and a contour color on the other. The stick is available in 4 shade duos. The shade depicted and reviewed here is Light.

Mario Badescu Skin Care

Packaging: 9.5/10

This highlighting and contouring duo comes in stick form, with the highlighter at one end and the contouring shade at the other. Each end has a metal, slip off cap and each end twists to reveal the product. This product is very convenient for taking on-the-go.

Quality: 8.25/10

The duo in Light has a neutral-colored contouring shade and a nude-colored highlighting shade. The contouring color is not orange or muddy and contains no shimmer. The highlighter, once blended into the skin, leaves a subtle sheen without noticeable shimmer.

I really like the convenience of this product. It’s easy to apply precisely and travel with. The cream formula blends out nicely, though I do find that I have to apply 2-3 layers if I’m using the contouring side for the face (using it to contour the nose doesn’t require layering). The highlighter is also really subtle, and I find myself layering it to try to get more of an impact out of it. I often can’t tell much of a difference between the half of my face where I’ve applied the highlighter and the half of my face that doesn’t have the highlighter, and just has a natural sheen.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The creamy formula for both the contour and highlighter blends out nicely and smoothly.

Price: 8.25/10

For $24.00 you get a total of 0.28 ounces (8 grams) of product. Especially if you’re going to use the contouring side for your face, and not just your nose, this is a small amount of product. Remember that it’s divided into two sides, so you’re getting 0.14 ounces of each color.
