For the longest time ever I wanted to get my hand on this product after seeing so many of my favorite youtubers using this product and seeing how amazing the colors are.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT :
The Palette itself is made out of smooth cardboard , very compact with a magnetic closing . There are 6 pans inside the palette with the top row having the 3 highlight shades and the bottom row the 3 contour shades . All these shades are powder based and matte except the shade Sand which has a little bit of shimmer . Each of these individual pans is held by a magnetic bottom , which makes it removable and replaceable if the shade is finished .

SWATCHES OF CONTOUR SHADES :
I think this is a great Palette for MAKE-UP artist in particular , because of the range of shades available for highlighting and contouring. It makes it suitable for almost every skin tone. I also think this can be a great beginner kit as well. With that being said, many of these shades can be found in a dupe, meaning other brands with just the specific color that suits you, however not in this format or in such superior texture.
HOW I USE THIS PALLETE :
I start off by applying my foundation and under eye concealer. Then I use the banana shade from the pallet and a sigma brush to set my under eye concealer . ( this helps with under eye creasing and highlights that area that the same time )
I then take the contour shade java and curve out my cheek bones using a small blending brush. Now taking the color fawn and a angled brush, I start blending that together in an upward motion so that there is no harsh lines visible.
If you want to intensify the contour, which I do occasionally, you can apply the banana shade right under the contour and blend it out.
If you are going for a night function and would like to have a glow, Use the Sand highlighting powder just above where you would apply blush on both sides. This will give a beautiful glow to the skin .
N.B. because this is a powder base kit , apply on a small area to see for skin irritation or breakout .
Hope you enjoyed this post
