The Pro and Con-tour
I’m a complete beginner in proper make-ups, but have been vying for proper, JeffreyStar-esque looks for quite a while. I bought this palette because 1) its cheap and 2) it serves my purpose because I was going to a wedding and I wanted to be FleEk.
As other reviews point out, the contour is amazing; good pigment, matte, and (in my opinion) had just enough fall out to convince me the powder was getting on my cheap, synthetic, hello kitty brush. Definitely served my purpose well and was actually easy to blend on my cheeks, forehead and nose.
The highlight was pure chalk, as advised by others who’ve bought this palette before me, but it wasn’t all bad. As a beginner I found it easy to overdo the contour, but diffusing the packed, dark pigment with the ‘highlight’ made it perfect, sometimes damping the contour down to a bronzer-ish kind of look. Doing this didn’t make it shiny and kept the finished look matte, because as mentioned the highlight was chalk so overall it was a good buy.
Minus one star for disappearing after 12 hours though ;) !
