I really like the shade range in this palette because I feel like it can work for when I’m really pale in the winter to when I get a bit of color in the summer. The contour blends perfectly and doesn’t get that annoying patchiness. The lighter colors also fit my skin perfectly for the highlighting areas. I would suggest seeing this in person first before buying to determine if this will work for your skintone, but otherwise the quality is perfect as always with Anastasia.
Great for makeup artists
This is a handy palette for makeup artists. You get 3 highlights & 3 contour colors. Each powder pan easily pops out when you need to refill it, which is nice. The powder is smooth and easy to blend. I took off 1 star for the packaging. While it is nice and sleek, it is essentially made out of paper/cardboard and feels quite cheap. I get wanting to save the environment, but given that this palette is refillable, why not make the packaging a bit sturdier and something easy to sanitize. I prefer a hard non porous surface that I can wipe down with alcohol. Again, I do like the product and think the powders are really beautiful on the skin.
Perfect for me & is long lasting without looking caked on!
Completely evens out my complexion when I pair it with my Nars Sheer Glow foundation (Trinidad) which is almost a match for me but when used alone with just a setting powder... makes me look TOO dark & “muddy” which is a nooooo for me! This product saved me from having to return or get stuck using a $48 foundation that wasn’t working without having to add extra concealer or lighter foundation which took away the simplicity from my “natural” makeup routine! It even is super long lasting which is also a huge bonus 🤗🙏☺️😍
Happy to have this replaces my MAC skin finish
I am very happy I bought this kit. If I want full out glam looks, this let me contour like a goddess. NOT an instagram goddess. I just look beautifully dimensional in person. There is the perfect amount setting powders, strong contour, light contour, bronzers, low lights. I really do enjoy having this. I will probably repurchase after i finish this just because it is such a nicely currated kits. I can use this everyday without having to worry about spending hours figuring out which powders go with which. I also have less products which I appreciate.
So I never want to buy the skinfinish by MAC again after using this. This is the perfect everyday set for powders. This fits my skin tone so perfectly. It can’t replace everything but it replaces MAC product for good. There is a setting and contouring and highlighting on the forehead and the under eye. I think I didn’t reach for it because I didn’t have the right brushes for it. Using my Wayne Goss Limited Edition Airbrush, I am all set and everything goes on beautifully. I will definitely be repurchasing this because of the good cost per gram and the amazing product.
Perfect for oily skin
I have oily skin and had a hard time finding the right contour texture for my skin type. I started using cream contours by other brands which made my face look even oilier. Based on the raving reviews, I gave ABH Contour powder kit a shot. Well-pigmented and the colours are so blendable. After it diffuses, the overall look of my makeup is beautiful. It accentuates the natural glow on my tones. Looks matte on my skin and that is exactly what I wanted. I am not sure whether it works for all skin types based on the other reviews I have read. I am only giving my take on this palette as it works well for me. Sometimes we need to try and test a range of cosmetics to see which is our best fit. I love the ABH contour powder kit and will buy it again. You may try this and see if it works for you if you have oily skin like me.
Not light enough for me
Although this is a great product, only one of the contour shades was light enough for me to use. Since it is ultra pigmented, I am not able to use the darker ones because it goes on my skin so dark and pigmented. The formula of the palette is great, though it is just a little dark.
