Review | FLORMAR Trio Contour Palette

When I went to Flormar, the guy that did my make up there, did some light contouring on me, and I actually liked the result. Contouring is not something I do often -- it's just to much trouble for me -- BUT I liked the result, and what he did was rather simple, so I decided to get the pallet he used and play around with it.



This is the Trio Contour Pallet in shade 02 Medium to Dark. And it's just beautiful! You know I'm a sucker for cute packing, and this really hits the spot. It's so cool! You can feel the quality of the plastic of the pallet -- it's hard and shinny, and just so beautiful. Yeah, I starting to become that person that buys shit just because the box is adorable!


Anyhoo, this little pallet comes with 2 different contouring shades and one highlighter. The darker shade, is an ashy-brown completely matte shade. Very earthy, very natural. It works really well with my completion. I think it mimics really well the my natural shading. The second pan has a more bronzy shade. It is much more reddish. While the other shade creates the feeling of a shadow on your face, this one gives you a more *sun-kissed* look. I particularly like this on the sides of my nose. It gives me such a nice beachy summer bronzed glow that I really love. The third pan is a gold highlighter. It’s not glittery, just very shimmery and reflective. And although it looks really muted in the pan, it looks really beautiful on. Much like the bronzer, it gives a very natural, healthy glow to the skin. It’s really really pretty. And it is also very beautiful to wear *solo*. Just the highlighter, on your bare skin. It gives you a super natural glow, like you were just out in the sun. It’s so nice.



I try to use these very lightly, mainly because I don’t like a very defined contouring. And also because I never go full glam with my make up. I apply the darker shade right bellow my cheeks bones, temples, and forehead -- close to my hair line and I try to blend it as best as I can. A apply little bit on my jaw line and just a little bit under the tip of my nose. Very lightly, I use the bronzer shade to blend my cheeks. I apply it just a little bit above the other shade. I also apply a little bit to the sides of my nose. And blend, blend, blend! If I feel like it's just too intense -- it happens, i'm just to heavy handed sometimes -- I use the same brush that I applied my foundation with, and I just buff it out, to try and dim it a little bit.


That's pretty much it. It's much more work than what I was used to but I actually like the outcome. I don't do it for everyday, of course. But for when I go out or to a party -- which to be honest is not that often, I have a boring social life. But I do like how I look in pictures, so I think I'm doing a good job.

  1. O tom mais claro é muito bonito, mas os outros acho que seriam uma desgraça na minha pele, principalmente agora de inverno que mais parece um cadáver de tão branca que anda.

    Beijinho.

  2. Não me maquilho com muita frequência mas adoro iluminadores! Sou apaixonada por iluminadores, aquele glow... Ou não fosse eu fão de glitters e brilhos, no geral :)

  3. Fazes bem em bronzear o rosto em vez de contornar para o dia-a-dia, especialmente se não gostas de full glam! Gostava de ter uma flormar mais perto de casa, acabo por experimentar muito pouco da marca e as coisas são todas tão simpáticas!
