I’ll be honest, I wasn’t going to purchase this mainly because I thought to myself… ugh another contour kit that’s going to be average. However, Rimmel had a 50% off sale at Priceline recently and for some reason I ended up buying it. No regrets!
The kit contains a highlight, contour powder and blush and is housed in a sleek rose gold compact (definitely Instagram worthy!).
The blush is just average, yes it’s a pretty coral shade but really not that pigmented and not something i’d reach for too often over my other blushes. The stars of the show are for sure the other two powders in the palette. The contour shade is fantastic, it isn’t overly pigmented which makes the product easier to use and build up if you need to. It does have a slight shimmer similar to NARS Laguna, but still works to chisel out the face. The highlight… oh my word. I’ve been using this on the reg’ and it’s the most used part of this palette for me. The shade leans more gold and it has a slight sheen but isn’t packed with glitter so it’s perfect for everyday wear.
I’m not usually one to do the whole contour/highlighting my face for work but because this palette is so subtle that I’ve been reaching for it even on my work days and it just gives that little extra oomph.
That glow though!
I’ve only seen this in the shade I purchased 002 Coral Glow in Australia, but I have noticed there is another shade or 2 available internationally.
If you’re just getting into the whole contouring/highlighting aka Kardashianing (it should be a technique!) this is a great starting point and even purchasing this full price at $16.95AUD is well worth it, even with the blush shade being average.
