This was the first contour palette I'd ever bought, its so easy to use! The colours blend so well together. It's perfect for use on your whole face. The powder sits so well on foundation!
I love using the shimmer highlighters as a base for my actual highlighter as they are not as bright as I like to wear for night out make up but they are perfect for daytime shimmer!
I use the darkest shade only on nights out and when I want my make up to stand out in photos. But the two lighter browns I use every day, I even use them when I don't put foundation on and they look naturally contoured.

Before I found this palette I had never done contouring before. I was introduced to this glorious product and I have to say I am OBSESSED! I'm already onto my second palette. There are different bronze tones to go with all skin tones and the highlighter is gorgeous especially when used in the inner corner of the eye. This is a must have.

I’ve just got my second one as my first one was destroyed because I loved it that much. I love it for contouring I use the two in the middle and the light matte shades are great to set the under eyes and the icy highlighter is great when I need to lighten a highlighter

this pallet is very very nice! i was very surprised that it was under £20 pound, as its so easy to blend and quite light as well. you can build this to however dark you want it. The powders in this palette feel nice and silky smooth when swatched. They're also very pigmented - which is a good and bad thing. Good - for setting under your eyes coz it really does brighten up the area, but bad for contouring since you need to use a really light hand otherwise it's easy to go overboard - especially with the darker colors. Speaking of the darker colors, i do wish they were more cooler toned. Aside from 1 noticeably cool toned contour color...the rest of them are very "warm". One of them even comes out "orange" on my skin if I'm not too careful.
They stay on all day until i'm ready to remove my makeup. Doesn't break me out which is a HUGE plus since I have hyper-sensitive skin. 98% of things i use end up giving me some kinda reaction...but this doesn't. YAY!
All in all, i do like this palette. I love the fact that you can take out each individual pan so you don't have to buy the entire palette again if you run out of 1 or 2 colors. Also, I would likely replace some of the warm darker shades with a couple of the cool toned color when/if they are available in stores.

This is a fantastic product as the shad the shades in it are to suit all shades. They look great on my skin if I’m pale I go for lighter shades which give me a sculpt finish and if I’m tanned they darker shades really emphasise my cheek bones. The banana shade sets my undereye perfectly and if I’m pale the lightest shade works just as well. It doesn’t sink into fine lines just gives my makeup a good steady setting! Love it!

Contouring can be hard to mess up, but not with this palette! The highlight is amazing and I am always getting compliments on it, and the contour shades are lovely with perfect texture. Worth the money/hype!

When done with a light hand, this product is amazing. The highlight shades are extremely pigmented, which was a big surprise, and are great for setting the undereyes. The highlighters in the pallet had a good range, though I found the lighter pink shade to pick up more texture on the skin than the darker champagne colour. I typically only use the first and third of the contour shades, due to my skin tone, however the other two have worked well for me when I initially tried them. My only critique is the contour colours can become muddy very very quickly, so a light hand is key.

I've used this palette every time I do my makeup, and haven't used another palette since. Looks absolutely stunning on the face and has the perfect amount of shades to choose from. Love that you can also re-fill when you've hit pan. They also last a very long time and don't rub off during the day (fade away). So so so good for the price, definitely worth it!

I love this contour palette as it has loads of really great shades for all types and colours of skin. The only downside to this product is probably that the highlighters aren't that pigmented. But the tan contour colours are extremely pigmented and blend really really easily! I use this everyday for a day time look to a night time look. It also has a guide to what brushes to use with what shades which I found really helpful.

Amazing product. It is a very affordable yet works as well as Nars or any other highend product. It provides good colour and blends easily. It is also good for every skintone and everyone will find it amazing.

Makes contouring easy, great variety of shades, cool and warmer tones, also includes pretty bronzers, both shimmering highlights are amazing and the matte are perfect for under eyes, nose and chin. Would recommend to anyone as colours blend so easily and stay on until you take them off, great price too

This palette is great because its is soo pigmented and blendable creating that perfect sculpting of your face with the brown, buildable contour shades. I also love the highlighter in the palette to really finish off the look. The yellow under-eye powder has to be my favourite as it instantly brightens your under-eye area for anyone who has dark circles or bags. Would definitely reccomend this product as i believe is perfect or begginers to pro's.

Great quality for the price! The sculpt contour shade is great for fairer skin. Love the highlighter too as I use it in the inner corners of my eyes as well on the highlight points of my face. The only downside is that the pans don't feel very secure and the lid can break easily. But that's what you get for the price

Great product for a contour beginner like myself. Blends well and the different shades mean you can customise for a day/night look. One issue I am having is some of the contour shades do not suit my skin tone so I am using a couple of the shades alot more than the others and i am struggling to get my hands on refills. Seems silly to buy the whole set again when i only need to replace 2/3 shades
