This is just a wonderful & affordable contour kit, & I got the one in Light-Medium for my skin tone, which is fair/light. The packaging is very travel friendly, as it is a compact cardboard box that shuts by a magnet. It’s very slim and sleek and fits into a medium size handbag very easily in case you want a bit of touch up on the go. There are 5 face powders inside with blush, highlight and contour all-in-one place so it’s quite convenient, & gives the most gorgeous natural finish to your face. It’s also great if you prefer a very natural contour everyday.
The first contour shade in the palette that has a matte finish, & is high in pigmentation. The second contour shade is more of a chocolate brown, so this one needs to be applied lightly on my complexion. I prefer the first shade unless I need a more dramatic evening look. The blush is a rosy-pink blush, & is very pigmented too, so use a soft fluffy brush and apply with a light hand. The highlighter shade in the palette is quite shimmery which leans more towards a silvery finish when you apply it on the high points of your cheekbones. This is highly pigmented and super powdery so you have to be careful with your application to avoid too much shine.
Overall, this palette gives a very natural contour to your face, if you use the correct brushes with the correct technique as this palette needs a very light hand with soft brushes and a little bit of practice because of the high pigmentation. If you can, use a stippling brush and blend, blend, blend, and a fan brush for the highlighter. This is a great palette for those, like myself, who wants to learn how to highlight & contour without spending a fortune, as it is currently selling for about US$11.00 at www.bhcosmetics.com.
