Rom&nd Better Than Shape Review

This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Jolse.


Until recently, my daily makeup consisted of translucent powder, brow gel and mascara. Then I tried adding blush and fell in love with 2aN - now I use it almost daily. Emboldened by that small victory, I decided to broaden my horizons and try a contour.


Rom&nd Better Than Shape Review, available in two colors on Jolse, promises to sculpt the face without looking too light or too dark. Walnut Grain is a warm tone and Oat Grain is a cool one. Mine is 01 Oat Grain.

How to use

  • Use each color separately for a more defined contour

  • Swirl both together for a more gentle shading effect


The marketing materials say to “sweep the brush in a counterclockwise direction and apply under your cheeks for natural shading. Sweep the brush in a clockwise direction for clear shading.” Clear shading seems to mean “more intense”. Most of the time, I use both colors together to gently try to shade right under the cheekbones in the hollows of the cheeks to make my round face look a bit more elongated.

The pressed powders in the palette are very fine and apply smoothly without caking. I did make a mistake of applying this with a slight overlap with my blush once and that made the color appear somewhat green. I haven’t had any issues with that since - I do the contour first now, then the blush.


My impressions

I’m a complete contouring beginner. I’ve seen many makeup tutorials over the years and have an idea of how and where to contour, but that’s completely different from actually doing it. Plus, I’m not used to seeing my face with much makeup on, so it often looks to me like I fell into a bucket of paint (even if it looks fine to others).

Rom&nd is easy to use and not intimidating. The colors show well on my fair skin without getting too dark quickly. I like the subtle yet noticeable difference this contour provides. I haven’t tried doing my nose or forehead, just the cheeks, and that’s enough for me for now. It also makes for a really good neutral eyeshadow for a ‘no makeup makeup’ look.


I love that kbeauty offers well made yet affordable skincare and makeup products. It’s definitely much easier to experiment without spending a ton of money.
