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.
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.
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.
Honestly this palette is not worth it! I was expecting it much bigger.. The palette is small the shades are very small. The pigment is fine but the two out of three bronzing shades cannot be used for contouring because theyre kind of orange- redish. The banana shade is great but the other two light shades were too light for me! I wouldnt recomend this palette only if you are a make up collector it is worth buying.
Staple Countour Product
I highly recommend this product for everyone. It is versatile and has all that you need in one palette for countouring. I use this product on a daily basis to add more definition to my facial structure. The product is buildeable in case you want to have a more defined look, however, you can also make a more natural contour with the pressed powders.
