Our Contour Range

From our famous contour palettes to creamy contour sticks, we’ve got everything you need to sculpt and define your look and a shade to suit every skin tone. 

Revolution Fast Base Contour Stick

Want an easy way to contour? Say hello to your new best friend! This dual contour and highlight stick lifts, defines and sculpts the face seamlessly with our lightweight, blendable formula.

Available in 4 shades:

How to: Simply use the darker end under your cheekbones, around your forehead, under your jawline and down each side of your nose to create definition. Use the lighter end to highlight on top of your cheekbones, under your eyes, in the center of your forehead and the middle of your nose.   

  

Revolution Lip Contour Kits

The ultimate hack for fuller lips! A highly pigmented, long-lasting matte liquid lipstick and matching lip liner, this is the perfect lip contour duo to become your new go-to lip routine.

Available in 6 shades: Lover, Brunch, Queen, Stunner, Stiletto and Divine.

How to: The creamy formula makes it effortless to glide onto the lips for a smooth application. Apply the lip liner to the perimeter of the lips to enhance and volumize; followed by applying the matte liquid lipstick to the center of the lips whilst blending it in with the lip liner.   

 

Revolution Face Powder Contour Compact

Carve, Chisel and Contour… Meet the Revolution Face Powder Contour Compact!

This cute contour compact will become a staple in your makeup bag and is perfect for travel and on the go. Its highly pigmented shades include a deep contour shade, a warm bronze, and a shimmer highlight with a range of shades for all skin tones. 

Available in 4 shades: 

How to: Apply the warm bronze shade to the outer perimeter of the face to add a natural bronzed glow. To chisel those cheeks, apply the deep contour shade underneath your cheekbones and finish with the shimmer highlight on the high points of your face, including your cheekbones, brow bone, nose and cupid’s bow.  

Revolution Contour & Shadow Crayons

Start your day sharp and snatched with Revolution Contour & Shadow Crayons. Included in the set is a cream contour stick and a shimmer shadow stick – the perfect tools to define and highlight those hard-to-reach areas such as your eyes and nose. 

These ultra-creamy, blendable and precise sticks make it fast and easy to get a contoured look without the worry of harsh lines. They can be used to highlight the inner corner of the eyes and nose or to add depth to other areas of the face (such as cheekbones, forehead, jawline, and nose). 

Top tip: A little goes a long so we recommend using a light hand when applying to small areas like the nose.
