    makeup staple

    This is perfect for people who want to contour but don't have much experience. The shades are perfect and easily blendable. Works for everyday wear as well as glam.

    Love

    This is a staple for anyone who loves makeup! The formula is so silky and it blends like a dream. Perfect for a more natural contoured look and it doesn't look muddy at all. This stuff is highly pigmented so a little goes a long way.

    Not enough!

    This products have had some amazing revIews. I really like the colours in the shade and light kit. It also lasted a long time. Blends well with the KVON D shade and light contour brush. I just thought the pans seem to run out so fast. I didn't think I would need the refillable kit for an extra $8-$10 bucks. But I'm regretting not purchasing that one now. I think I will experiment with other contour palettes for now.

    Easy to use

    I recently bought it and this is my first contouring palette. It was expensive for me but after using it I felt it was kinda worth. The packaging is good and it includes a guide but I think they could have made the guide and instructions better for the first time users. Also, including a brush would of been better.

    The best contour kit I've ever owned!

    I love Kat Von D make up and I was so excited when I heard of the Shade + Light Contour Kit. I bought this the day it came out, and have used only it for contouring ever since. It has three highlighting shades and three contouring shades that you can use for many different looks! It even comes with a little help guide to show you where to put each to achieve the look you're going for. The powders and palette are extremely good quality and work every cent!

    Alright but not worth the price

    I bought this a few weeks back to see if I could add contouring to my makeup routine. The lady at sephora s old it to me, but even as she did my contouring I could hardly see a difference.
    I guess because it is powder, the effects are not as dramatic. The good news is that there are lots of shades to mix and use together. The downside is that it is so big and bulky. This is good if you are using everyday or are a makeup artist. But for a more low maintenance look, I would get something smaller.

    I have had this kit now for over 2 years and I use it about 3-4 times a week and I'm only now running out of colour it's lasted SO long. I love how the pigment adds up easily with every swipe & how easy it is to blend. I use this kit as eyeshadow sometimes as well if I'm limited to space when packing & it's great for that too!

    This contour palette is the best I have tried. It's very easy to use for beginners as well as people experienced with contour. The shades are good for all skin types and colours I believe. I use the lighter palette. I am very pale but I can use all 6 shades that are provided - 3 light shades for highlighting and 3 dark shades for contouring. Those are powdered contours, which glide on so smoothly and don't leave creases under your eyes or anywhere else on your face. Very pigmented. The dark colours don't look muddy on your face and glide on very nicely as well. You don't have to use a lot of product at once, which is great and which adds to the price being so worth it. I use it every single day and so far it's been 6 months and I still have lots left. I will be repurchasing this over and over.

    My favourite contour powders! The formula isn't chalky or overly buttery where its hard to blend. I use the shade lyric to highlight my undereye area after applying concealer and it works well. I use the shade sombre to contour the hollows of my cheeks and lightly apply shadowplay along my jawline and forehead to create depth. The palette has lasted me well over near 2 years, and although it costs around 60-65$ CDN, It's well worth it for the amount you get and the quality!

    I absolutely love the Kay Von D Shade and Light Contour Kit for everything from an every day to a night on the town! I especially recommend it if you are just getting into the makeup game and lack experience with contouring. Because it is a powder, rather than a cream, product it is much more forgiving. Making it easy to use for beginners to pros.

    The one con I did notice for this product is that if you only use this for personal use, you will probably only use two of the shades, one light, and one dark. Maybe four if you tan significantly throughout the year. For myself, I get use out of all the colours. This is because one, I do makeovers for many different people with a variety of skin tones, and two, because depending on the look I am going for I may need a deeper colour. This is because photography makeup may need to be darker.

    Honestly, it is one of my favourite palettes and I tend to reach for this more often than my cream contours because it is a time saver in the morning. On top of that Sephora launch, a new version of this palette that allows you to refill certain colours, which is absolutely amazing. I definitely, recommend this palette!
