Packaging:

The palette comes in a plastic black box with a see-through cover displaying the powders. It has 8 different shades for highlighting and contouring. It is large in size, and is not suitable for your handbag. The pans are refillable, therefore when a shade runs out, it can be replaced with the same one or even with a new shade for a personalized palette, without having to buy an entire new palette.

Available Colors:

There are 8 different shades in this palette:

  • Ice Queen: Pearly white with a lot of shimmer
  • Soft Light: Nude matte
  • Cream: Banana toned, matte
  • Nectar: Peach toned with shimmer
  • Tan: Light brown with red undertones, Satin finish
  • Toffee: Warm brown with a bit of shimmer
  • Sculpt: Light brown, satin finish
  • Hollow: Deep dark brown, matte

There are also 8 new shades available, which are more on the brighter side of the palette and do not include darker colors.

Texture:

The texture of the shades is light-weight powder, and with a good brush, it easily applied and bendable. However, the palette doesn’t come with an application brush, therefore a highlighting and contouring brush must be purchased separately.

Effect:

This is a very versatile palette suitable for different skin tones, and different type of skin, and it is comprised of several shades with several colors. For beginners, before using it, it is strongly recommended to get familiar with the highlight and contouring techniques, otherwise, the palette will be misjudged for creating looks that are too dark, orange or light. After that, one can experiment widely in the palette. Since it has very pigmented colors, 3 colors can be mixed at the same time, to create a natural look to brighten the face, or a night look to add depths and shadows and create sharp cheekbones to the face, or even use the palette as an eyeshadow palette. It is preferable to keep in mind, that the dark highlighters are shimmery and therefore need to be applied in the proper way, else it will create an undesired look. For non professionals who use highlight and contours shades daily, the problem that will appear is that eventually at least 2 shades in the palette will never been used, although they have been paid for. For makeup professionals, this is a great palette, as it can be used to create the makeup of several people with several appearances and preferences. This product has no smell, and is therefore suitable for smell-sensitive people.
The longevity of the palette differs from oily to dry skins. For the oily skins, this product lasts for around 4 hours. As for the dry ones, it lasts for 5-6 hours before having to retouch. Moreover, the shades don’t last on the skin by themselves; a primer needs to be applied first on the skin, so it can last a long time, otherwise there will be a lot of product fallout.

How to use:

Use a highlighting brush and apply the light colors that are available on the top part of the palette to highlight the area under the brows, on top of the cheekbones, chin, and cupid’s bow. For contouring, use an angled brush and apply the dark shades on the hollows of the cheekbones, as vertical lines on the edges of the nose, on the edges of the forehead in a round line, and on the crease. Please note that this way to use the shades can be modified according to specific needs.

Price:

This palette retails in Lebanon for 36$, which is little pricier then Max Factor Miracle Contouring Palette sold at 32$ with 8 shades too.

    This is a must for a mua to have in her set. It has a wide variety of shades that will suit all. And the textures are amazing. I dont think it’s for the average girl because i dont think she will use all these shades. But for muas ut is really good. As a mua I highly recommend this. This came out dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette.

    “I know this palette is everywhere. But when I wore them, I felt like a bit powdered idk how to explain but they fell directly onto my cheeks. I had to retouch it using another palette from my friend. But I don’t know if the one I have is original because someone got it for me, so i don’t really know.”

    “Ohhh I have been using this palette since the first day I started wearing makeup .. what is nice that it has various contouring and highlighting shades and it can be built up. So if you want a simple look you can apply the soft shades and without building the color, but if you want a daring strong look you go for the popping shades. Simple, Easy, and highly recommended specially if you’re a makeup beginner <3”

    I bought this palette around 2 years ago and ever since it has been the only powder contour palette I use; not because I don’t want to but because it still has product in it. What I love about it is the different range of colors in each; whether contouring or highlighting. I love the range of colors which makes it perfect for our tanned bodies in summer and our dull whitish/yellowish color in winter. The banana powder is one of my favorites. The product is very lightweight; doesn’t crease or show powder particles. It is INCREDIBLY LIGHTWEIGHT YET PIGMENTED !!! I forgot to mention it’s blendibility. Some powders that I have used may stick to the foundation and that will make the blending even harder and not as perfect as you want it to be. However this powder contour palette doesn’t stick to the foundation. One thing probably that I didn’t like was that the circles containing the product sometimes fall easily to the ground. Other than that It’s a must girls!

    “This palette is a must have. The colors are super amazing, my favorite colors are these. However, when I wore them , I felt like they were a bit powdered, idk how to explain but they fell onto my cheeks right quickly. I had to retouch twice in order to fix them with powder as well. I like it but I think there are better palettes in town”

    “I had doubts about using this palette. But honestly, I tried it yesterday, and I was shocked! The concealer matched my skin. It’s the first time I find a shade that matches my white skin. It covers really well, I applied it with my fingers and can be easily washed out. It doesn’t mess up your clothes or vanity, as it’s extremely pressed as a powder. The highlighter should’ve been more pigmented, but it looks really nice on a fair or tanned skin. I picked the lighter bronzer, and it also looked good.”

    Unfortunately I just couldn’t get it to work for me at all. All the shades were either 1) Too dark 2) Too warm or 3 did not show up at all on my skin.

    Not all it's shades come in handy if you have a fair skin tone.

    “I have been using this palette for a while now and I noticed that not all it’s shades come in handy if you have a fair skin tone like mine but they are well pigmented, I use the “”Cream”” shade to set the concealer under my eyes , “”Ice Queen”” as a highlighter on the top of my cheekbones, and the rest of the light shades under my eyebrows or as eye shadow for a bare minimum makeup look. As for the darker shades, I only use the “”Sculpt”” shade to contour my cheeks & bronze them at the same time, other dark shades are really harsh in colour on my skin tone unless I use an angled face shader brush and blend it really well into my skin to have a nicely contoured face. The amount of product in the pans is small, I’d rather have a palette with 2 shades that are my colour than all of these shades.”
