This is my current favourite contour and highlight palette. The contours are very warm and nice (if you have pale skin like me, you might need to use a greyer eyeshadow underneath to avoid becoming orange). ...Great contour, some shades not for paler skins...Only thing I don't like is that since I'm really pale, the highlighters make me look paler, and some of the contours can be too dark on my skin.

What it is:
A sleek palette with six shades: three for highlighting and three for contouring.

Not for Pale Folks...I liked the idea but even the lightest shade is too dark for my skin tone. I couldn't blend it out to look like a contour, it just looked brown....More of a bronzer than a contour!...It works as a cream bronzer on my skin…but not really as a contour.

Otherwise, I used a fluffy blending brush to blend and it gives a very natural finish.
