I admit, I don’t contour and/or highlight on a daily basis but with the influx of holiday festivities, I do want to amp my makeup game. I had the opportunity to try Pur Cameo Contour, is it a game changer? scroll down for more details plus swatches of every shade!

Retailing for $39.50, this cream-based stick is dual-ended, highlighter on one side and contour on the other. It comes with a latex-free blending sponge, a value-added item I so appreciate! The stick’s formula is oil-free with a velvety matte finish. But what makes this product extra special is the addition of Vitamin A and Sodium hyaluronate which renders a plumper, smoother and softer look and feel.
With a cannonade of contour/highlight how-to’s in the interwebz, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and intimidated. From Kim Kardashian’s strokes to clown contouring, it’s looking more and more complicated. I feel ya! But see, the trick really boils down to blending so do as you please. Pur Cameo in particular is fool-proof as it glides and blends seamless so whether you’re a pro or newbie, you really can’t go wrong with it.
The swatches are applied directly from the tube. The top row corresponds to highlighter and bottom row for contour. Here’s how I use this product:
Again, I applied directly from the tube and used the lighter shade under the eyes, lip corner and nose tip and the darker shade below the cheekbone, jaw line and both sides of the nose. If I didn’t have bangs, I could’ve covered the center (light) and sides of my forehead (dark). I finished by lightly dusting finishing powder over my entire face. For reference, I chose medium for a subtler look.
Overall, I am delighted to add Pur Cameo to my makeup must-haves!

Beautifully done! You make it seem so easy! A contouring stick sounds more convenient for product placement. Plus, it is travel-friendly.
You did such a lovely and subtle job– which i the way that I prefer it. I need to hurry and photograph mine sos that I can try them! Excellent review, twinsy!
You look so cute with bangs! Thank you for swatching these. It is so interesting to see how the shade that I chose (light) looks on someone else: on me the highlighter isn't quite light enough and the contour is a bit too orange. I didn't swatch medium, tan, dark & deep coz I did a giveaway so it was great to see how they would actually look on skin.
I've never contoured but you're making me want to!
I love these contour sticks, I use the medium over the light because it's not so orange on me heh. I also love the sponge it works great! Love your new hair (new to me hehe)
I like that it's an easy to use contour stick. It looks so natural on you.
Looks so easy to use!
I don't contour very regularly, but this, I could see myself using. I love that the sponge is included.
I like the fact that this looks so easy to use and doesn't have a lot of steps. It looks so good on you.
I just reviewed these today too, great minds think alike! 😉 I absolutely love the formula, it's so easy to blend and the contour shades are all wonderful!
These contour shades suit you right down to the ground.
I loved how easy these were to blend out!
Beautiful! These little sticks sure make contouring look easy 😀
So I finally grew a pair and decided to give these a go (I don't contour) and I freaking LOVE them!
You look gorgeous (as always) and I love how easy it looks/sounds to use this product.
