Ever Bilena Contour Duo Review and Swatch

Ever Bilena Contour Kit Duo Review and Swatch

Just reviewed the Ever Bilena Contour Duo! I've got the shade Deep, so let's see how this fairs with my skin tone.

Ever Bilena Contour Duo
Create seamless natural looking dimension with one contouring product. The deeper shade enhances definition while the lighter shade illuminates high points of the face. It instantly transforms facial features for a more balanced face shape.

I'm testing out the Bare Blanc's Super Fit Cushion and the Rire lipstick in Nudy Beige

My face looks super flat and bland up here, so let's apply the Ever Bilena Contour Duo!

Applied a bit of the deeper shade on the forehead and on the cheek bones. And then applied the lighter shade on top of it.

Et voila, I've now got a nose bridge and a healthier glow!

Ever Bilena Contour Duo Review
Ever Bilena has been coming out with a lot of new products lately and this one's probably been on the wish list by a lot of people. I mean who wouldn't wait to get their hands on the newest contour kit right? Now on to my review!

First of all, the Ever Bilena Contour Duo doesn't come with a mirror nor a brush. Instead, you've got two powders for contour and highlight plus eight grams of product. That's totally fine with me since I barely use the brushes that come with compacts and I'd exchange that for a lot more product at any time. It comes in plastic packaging and the lid offers a close/open click and feel for security. There's also a little space left between the lid and the powders, so if you have a small brush or powder puff, you could definitely put it in there and make this a travel-friendly contour kit.

For the powders itself, the contour powder is very, very pigmented. Be careful and tap off the excess. It's not soft nor creamy like their face powders, so when I first used a dense brush, I ended up putting too much. I recommend using a fluffier and softer one for a more natural finish. Even though I ended up putting too much, it was easy to brush off and blend. It's not an orangey-brown, not too grey-ish either, so it was perfect to use for the nose line.

As for the highlight powder, it's matte with a little bit of a yellow under tone. I'm not sure if this is the case with the other Ever Bilena Contour Duo shade, but mine in the shade Deep was matte. There's a tiny tiny tiny little bit of glitter on it, but I'd consider it 95% matte. Now, this isn't my first matte highlighter, so I applied it just the same as the shimmery ones. It offered a very subtle highlight and more control compared to shimmery highlighters. This would probably show up on deeper skin tones and would look better on the nose contour.

Over all thoughts? Even though the highlighter didn't show up much on my medium oriental skin tone, the contour powder did an amazing job. It added a warm and healthy glow plus natural looking shadows on my face and it was easy to use. I like the packaging as it's practical and offers a lot of product. Remember to tap your brush because it's super, super pigmented and really packs a punch!

Price is PHP 165. It's a steal!

Let me know if you see this in stores and if the other shade has shimmers in it! :)

  4. Gusto ko yun packaging nito. Like you, mas gusto ko na yun malaki yun product kahit walang brush kasi malimit naman hindi rin magamit yun brush na originally kasama ng product.
