Contouring made simple with Makeup Revolution’s universal shade for contour perfection in The One Sculpt Contour Stick. Apply in one simple swipe, and then blend and buff to perfection.  I love the subtle sheer colors of the One Sculpt and Contouring sticks. As you can see below the shades come out very vibrant and pigmented, I blend with my finger tips or a makeup brush and I am left with beautiful and natural looking contouring. Perfect for your gym or travel bag, the One sticks are great for on the go and the creamy formula means I am not worried about dropping a powder compact and ruining it. (Won’t admit how often that has happened to me.) The One blush stick even doubles as lipstick!
