Face Contour Week: Snoe Slim Shade Me Face Sculpting Cake

What if a contour powder can actually slim down your face - for good? That's the amazing proposition of the Snoe Slim Shade Me Face Sculpting Cake (P799). It claims to literally contour your face over time, with ingredients like coffee (to firm and tighten skin) and Magnolia Bark Hot Water Extract (to supposedly prevent fat accumulation and creation).

Coffee or caffeine is a common ingredient in cosmetics nowadays, since it's an effective way to quickly tighten skin. It constricts blood vessels and slightly dehydrates the skin thus effectively de-puffing the area. Caffeine is especially useful in eye creams! As for Magnolia Bark extract, I am not so sure. If it were that simple, everyone would be bathing in the stuff. Why bother with dieting, amirite?  

So yes, I would suspend belief about the permanent face slimming properties of any powder. :) That aside I do like the Snoe Slim Shade Me because the color is great for contouring, it's smooth, and it has a good staying power due to the amazonian clay in it.

The shade is a slightly rosy tan that looks pretty natural on my medium skin. It's pigmented, so use only a little and build it up as needed! This stays on for about 5-6 hours, which is a very good number for any face color.

You can't see it in the pic but it has a slightly rosy hue. Very pretty!

Worn! It's a bit too rosy for nose contouring but it's great for the cheeks and temples.

Overall, the Snoe Slim Shade Me Face Sculpting Cake is a great product for contouring and for its added benefits. :) Try it if you're very oily! I actually appreciate that it contains antioxidants and vitamins to protect the skin from enviromental damage, more than the face slimming claims. I guess, I don't want my makeup to magic my face into looking thinner. I just want it to look good while I'm wearing it!

What do you think? What would you do to have makeup that'll give you permanent plastic surgery in say, five minutes? :P
