I have had this product in my collection for a couple of months and I wanted to test it our before I reviewed it. Silly old me didn’t think of taking pictures of the palette when it was brand new (bad beauty blogger). The 6 sculpting and highlight shades come in a very sleek compact. I was a bit shocked that the packaging was cardboard considering how much you pay for the palette. I can see that this would wear away pretty quickly. Also another major issue is that the palette doesn’t have a mirror! ABH should have popped one in. Although the packaging itself isn’t perfect the product inside is.
I went for the ABH Contour kit in the shade Light/Medium. The highlight shades inside are; Vanilla, Banana and Sand. The sculpting shades are; Java, Fawn and Havana. All of the shades are highly pigmented and super easy to blend, you hardly have to do any work. I tend to use Vanilla as an all over face powder and Banana for under my eyes. I have been using Sand as a subtle every day highlight. There isn’t any glitter in it which is perfect for those days where you want a highlight but nothing to in your face.
When it comes to sculpting my favourite shade is Fawn as you can probably tell from the images. Fawn is perfect for creating those shadows. I’m extremely pale and this is definitely my perfect contour shade. If i’m wearing more makeup I tend to mix Java and Havana and pop it over the top of Fawn. This for me works really well and doesn’t make me look orange. You do need a lighter hand with these two though. All of the sculpting shades last all day and don’t go patchy like some other contours I have previously used.
All of the pans are replaceable which is great. So when you run out of one you can just replace the pan instead of having to buy a whole new palette.
I think I have found my holy grail contour palette and I can now see why this product is raved about in the beauty world. I can see this being a product that stays in my collection. You can buy this for £39 from Cult Beauty
