Welcome back on the blog. I haven’t been very regular with reviews in recent times because of my crazy schedule but I’m glad to announce I finally have things in place and so you should be seeing a lot more from me from here on out.
Up first (as I’m sure you can tell from the title LOL) is the Zaron Face Definer. I picked these up out of curiosity and I’m glad I did.
The Zaron Face Definer comes in a small, black 3 part palette with a full size mirror. It fits comfortably in my palm and reminds me of the Sleek Makeup Face Form & Blush by 3 palettes except the edges on the Zaron face definer are more square.
The 3 part palette contains a matte highlight, matte contour and a shimmery bronzer. All three parts are very pigmented, so pigmented that I have even used them as eye shadows! I also really like that the highlight in this palette unlike the one in the Sleek Face Form is matte, so you won’t need the legendary Ben Nye Banana Powder* or which ever light powder you like to set your highlight with if you use this palette.
I’ve had these palettes for a few months now and they are pretty easy to use. Watch out for the high pigmentation though. I suggest starting with very little product and building up as you see fit as opposed to starting off with too much (like I did the first time I ever used it). The high pigmentation makes it a bit tough to blend if you do not control the amount of product you start out with.
Zaron Face Definer comes in 4 shades from very light #05 to #20 as pictured below.
You may have noticed from the pictures above that the 2 lightest shades (#05 & #10) are very similar. In both shades the contour shade remains pretty much the same, the main difference is the highlight and bronzer which get a little darker in #10. If you are decide to get this for your kit I’d recommend you get 05 or 10 (skip the other) then get the 2 darkest shades. #20 which is the darkest shade runs VERY dark and I love it! Not many brands carry a contour powder that dark, almost as if they can’t image a person that dark LOL.
The palettes retail for N2,800-N3,000, though this price places it closer to the more affordable “drug store” category of makeup products it still substantially more expensive that the Sleek Makeup Face Form which retails for N2,000-N2,200.
Zaron Face definer is available from Zaron stores and distributors nation wide. They are also available at Stella’s Addiction Makeup Studio & Boutique in Lekki, Lagos.
As I’m sure you can already tell from the review I’m really pleased with this purchase, this is a great buy and I will likely repurchase it. I purchased all 4 shades of the Zaron Face Definer then received the darkest shade for review from the Zaron Team.
Highlighting and contouring is big on the makeup scene these days, palettes like these are a good place to start, especially for beginners. If you are looking for a good face contour kit you should definitely try this one.
