This contour kit contains 6 removable powders that are designed to contour and highlight your eyes, cheekbones, nose & jawline. You get 3 highlight shades & 3 bronzing / contour shades.
5 of the shades are matte and the very last highlight shade has a bit of sheen to it. What draws me into this palette is how light the bronzing shades are. If you’re like me and just getting into contouring, these shades are perfect for fair, light & medium skin tones. I’m not one to contour my face every single time I wear makeup, but I think having this kit in my collection is perfect to practice with!
My ONLY gripe about this palette is I wish it had a mirror. It’s not a HUGE deal, but it definitely has the space for it!
All of the shades were extremely easy to use and blend onto the skin. The first 2 bronzers were absolutely perfect for my skin tone and I know for sure the last bronzer in the kit will be perfect for when I’m self tanning!
As far as the highlight shades go, the very first shade (Which I believe is called Sand) was pretty much the same exact shade of my skin. I attempted to swatch it for you guys, but honestly you couldn’t even tell it was there. I’ve been using this as a base for my eyeshadow and underneath the brow bone. Perfect matte shade for that!
Overall, I definitely think this is a fun easy to use kit! Like I said, if you’re just starting out contouring, I would highly recommend picking this up to play around with. It’s so versatile that you will definitely get your money’s worth!

Ooh lovely! I’d love to try this out. I’ve never done contouring like this, only with a regular brush and bronzer. I like that the shades are suitable for lighter skintones, I hope it comes back in stock soon or I can find it at a local Sephora..

I’ve really been considering getting this kit! Contouring just freaks me out so bad because I’m so pale D:

Fun! I think this is a great option. I have one of the new NARS ones but it’s kinda dark and warm toned, these look better for me!

I’ve never contoured before. i feel like if i ever tried it, it’d be a total fail lol.
I hate to say it- but the labels on the last picture are incorrect.
