I am allowing myself to get one "novelty"beauty product a month. Yes, we're into March and I am still sticking to my New Year Resolution of buying less makeup.
Have been wanting a contour palette for a while and finally decided on the Kat Von D Shade + LIght Contour Palette after reading numerous raving reviews.
I am new into contouring and I was contemplating on whether to get cream or powder. But think cream is a bit tricky to apply and harder to blend out. Decided on the Kat Von D contour palette as I think the shades would suit my skin tone the best.
The palette consists of 3 contouring and 3 highlighting shades. All the shades are matte.
I really love the sleek packaging. It comes with a large mirror and it has magnetic closure. 3 highlighting shades are slightly smaller than the contouring shades which make sense as you would need to use those less.
The 3 contouring shades are super pigmented. These are light swatches with my fingers barely touching the product.
The highlighting shades are slightly powdery compared to the contouring shades.
I am super excited to try this palette out. I feel like I could use all the contouring shades and two out of the three highlighting shades(one is just too light to show up on my skin tone). I will probably use my Sigma angle flat-top kabuki brush as it is very stiff and I think I would need a good dense brush to apply the contouring shade.
I also get the Sephora VIB Rouge Algenist skin care trio with purchase. They are very good deluxe sizes. Algenist is a very good skin care brand and this is the best way to try out different products before investing on the full-sized ones.
Do you contour? What is your favorite brush to apply contouring shades on your cheekbones?
