[ETUDE HOUSE] Golden Ratio Contour Maker *Pink*

If you wonder why I sometimes write two reviews on one day, it's mainly because I start to move in a new apartment in May and I will be very busy. Because of that, I'm not sure if or when I will write reviews again. So, I try to write as many reviews as possible before May!

The second review for today is about the Golden Ratio Contour Maker in #02 Pink (Venus Angle). This 3in1 product from [ETUDE HOUSE] contains Highlighter, Blusher and Shading. You can get it in #01 Gold (Gold Angle) as well.
The other products available in the Golden Ratio line are:
- Face Glam (Gold, Pink)
- Tear Drop Powder (Gold, Brown, Khaki, Grey)

Description: Golden Ration aesthetic makeup line.
This multi-shade pressed powder supplies highlighting, shading and blusher tones.
The Contour Maker comes in a square container which is brown with golden shimmer.
It might be that the container came in another packaging as well but I can't remember and if so, I threw it away.
The square container includes a mirror, a small brush and contains 10g.
#02 Pink (Venus Angle) consists of the following color shades:
A) Highlighter: A very bright pink shade, could be a skin beige as well.
B) Blusher: A peachy pink!
C) Shading: A light-medium brown shade.
All three (3) colors contain gold shimmer!  
The product also says that it contains a Sebum Control Powder.
So, how to use this multi-shade pressed powder??
Apply A) Highlighter with the brush to your T-Zone and under your eyes.
Then B) Blusher to your cheek bones. It's better when you use a bigger brush for that.
C) Shading you can apply along hairline and jaw line. I use it at my nose area to let these appear 'thinner', too.
I have to say that I don't use this Contour Maker a lot. I tried it out when I took some pics of myself but I didn't liked it much at that time. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice product but I used too much (especially of the highlighter) and my face looked too shimmering.
If I wear it outside I would use much less and then it sure looks more nice!

Price: around 14,- €/ US$18 
Bought at: eBay (rubyruby76)   

What I love:  
There is nothing I really love yet!

What I don’t like: 
It contains too much golden shimmer! I look weird when I use too much of it (especially of the highlighter).

Will I buy this again? No, I won't! I would get another highlighter, though.
