*I have recently worked on a paid partnership with Iconic London for this launch. This is not part of that partnership*
These have JUST launched over on Iconiclondon.com this week and I’m here to tell you ALL about them as I was one of the lucky first few people to get these pre-launch and have been trying them out for a couple of weeks now.
The Iconic London Precision Duo Contour Pots are a super easy and steam-lined way to get a really natural contoured look to the face. It’s a brand new way to contour! Forget harsh lines and wrong tones, these clever compacts ensure you are left with a seamless, blown-out beautiful finish… every single time.
These have 2 transformative textures : a cream base and a velvety setting powder. Think soft, sculpted cheekbones and sweeping, shaded shadows – this is contouring, the MODERN way.
This two texture innovation allows you to layer the contour to sculpt your features with a feather-light cream base before locking in your look with a soft-as-suede ultra-fine powder. The cream formula is almost like a mousse, it’s a really unusual texture….and so very lightweight on the skin. They are a matte finish. The powder has a slight sheen to it….not glowy or like a highlighter, but they are not matte or flat but this gives a really naturally and flawless finish on the skin.
The way you layer them is really up to you…..but they will work best if you apply cream first and seal it with the powder after. This ensures a long-lasting, natural-looking contour.
LIGHT SHADOW – Fair to light skin. a barely-there beauty that offers a whisper of beige to your skin.
MEDIUM SHADOW – Light to medium skin. a cool-toned taupe brown that effortlessly melts into the skin.
TAN SHADOW – Medium to tan skin. a chestnut brown that’s cool undertones help sculpt like nothing you’ve tried before.
DEEP SHADOW – Tan to seep skin. is the one you want – its beautiful berry brown adds depth and definition in an instant.

HOW TO USE THE ICONIC PRECISION CONTOUR DUOS:
Shape, Set, Seal
Before foundation, using your fingers or beauty sponge, apply the cream contour in gentle patting motions to the areas you wish to shape and sculpt, such as your cheekbones, on your temples, along your hairline, down the sides of your nose and along your jawline.
The Iconic Precision Duo Contour Brush makes easy work of nose contouring with the unique ‘u-shaped’ end.
Once you’ve shaped as above, apply your foundation or tinted moisturiser using your beauty sponge or brush in pressing/stippling motions…you don’t want to drag or bring the cream off…just merge it into the skin. The cream contour will pull through your foundation for a stunning ‘under-painted’ effect.
SEALSweep the powder finisher across the areas you have cream-contoured for an ultimate seamless finish.
