Originally I bought this for the bronze highlight type shade on the bottom right... and to be honest it wasn't the product that amazed me the most. The price of this product for the pigmented, wide range of colours you receive is outstanding. The shades range from warm toned to cool toned bronzers with 3 highlight shimmers and a pink and yellow powder which I assumed was setting powder or matte highlight. Personally, I found that it occasionally clung to my dry patches or blemishes in that area and it took a bit of elbow grease to blend out if there is a harsh line or too much product. The contour shades are highly pigmented so I found a little does go a long way with those. The highlighters were very pigmented however the baked sort of ice shade is chunkier glitter and it gets e v e r y w h e r e. It is very hard to apply not streaky and I ended up giving up on that almost instantly, as every time I tried I looked like a glitter ball... The matte yellow and pink shades.. If i'm honest I didn't and still don't understand the purpose but I just used for an emergency under eye setting powder and it did the job. I wont be buying again just because I have others that I reach for more, however it is a great product for the price!

this pallet is perfect if you need contour on a budget. its easy to blend but not the best in the world i find. still at the price of £8 you cant go wrong! whenever i run out of my more expensive contour kits and cant get them quick enough i buy the cream and powder version of this pallet.

Personally I love this palette as not only is it an affordable alternative to high end contouring palettes, but the shades for contouring are great. They are perfect for contouring and bronzing the face and I have a fair complexion which is great because these shades do not look orangey on me at all. These powders blend in easily which is great as it doesn’t end up looking muddy or cakey. They are long lasting too. I don’t really use the highlighting powders however as I feel they don’t make much of a difference. The white highlighter is great for an inner corner highlight though.

I use this product on the daily, it has everything anyone would need to highlight and contour with. The pigmentation in both the contour and highlight shades is INSANE. Not to mention that the products last such a long time! I’ve had my pallet for as long as I can remember and I’ve omly just hit pan on one of the contour shades. This product is super cheap too so you really can’t go wrong! There’s a shade for everybody so it’s very universal!

Great choice of colours. Could do with a paler brown for the very fair skin types. Providing you set your makeup before applying this goes on nicely and is very blendable and buildable. Tip - i mix a pale with the lightest brown so its a better colour match for me. Also a little goes a long way with this.

I love the highlighters in this pallete. The white and gold one is really icy and works really well with my light skin tone, the one to the left of it is good for the nose for a subtle highlight and can be made more intense the more you put on, the one at the bottom right is nicer for darker skin tones and when i have my fake tan on, it comes out a lot lighter than how it looks in the pan. I dont like the contour shades that much as they arent great to blend out as they tend to just stick in one place.

When i first purchased this pallet i thought that i would use it for a while the find something better, like my many other drugstore pallets. However, i had been using this for a while now and have yet to find a better one, the range of colours fit most skin tones. Along with this i was shocked by the highlight silver colour. It is very glittery but i still love it, and i use most of time when i go out. I prefer using this pallet over the majority of my high end products, not just because of the price but also do to the amazing quality of the product. I would defiantly recommend to anyone.

out of the 8 shades, due to my pale skin, i find it really hard to use 2 of the shades, but for anyone with deeper skin this palette would be amazing. the highlight shades are beautiful and i am in love. the yellow powder is good and so the pinkish shade, which are really good for under the eye setting!

I received this from GlamGeek as a reviewer prize and I'm so happy to have had the chance to try this as I'm not sure it's something I would have chosen myself. I can totally see why this is number 1 on Glam Geek for contouring. The pigmentation, the ease of application, the end result, the longevity - all of these are five star! I had thought I'd found my holy grail contour in the Illamasqua gel sculpt stick but since receiving this I've used it every day. I also love the marbled highlighter and bronzer/blusher - they are so gorgeous and very flattering on the skin. Love it!

I love nothing more than being surprised by a budget product. My first thoughts were the highlighter would be gritty and the contour colours would be muddy, but I was wrong. The highlighters are really finely milled, highly pigmented and I found mixing the two marble colours gave me the perfect sheen and glow I've been trying to achieve. The contour colours are also finely milled, almost buttery in texture and blend beautifully. To sum up the palette is highly pigmented, long lasting, easy to work with and at £1 per pan its probably the best £8.00 you will ever spend on contouring.

It's rare that I come across a contour palette with shades that suit me. I won this from Glamgeek for a review that I wrote. This is actually a really good palette from MR as some of them can be a bit hit and miss. It has one of the best formula's that I have tried, usually I can't blend other contour products out very well apart from one gel formula I have tried. There are a couple which are slightly too dark but there is one that is perfect for my skin tone! The highlighter in the top right corner is also stunning, is it bad that I thought it might end up chunky? It's not! Very impressed!

✨OMG this Contour Palette!! I was extremely lucky and grateful to win this from the @Glamgeek squad and what a prize it is! I usually use the Anastasia Beverley Hills Pro Contour Series Pallette which is an initial outlay of £45, plus up to £11 per refill. I can honestly say the results of this palette mirror and even surpass the ABH pallette - great application, easy to blend, highly pigmented and a great choice of colours! Plus it’s an absolute steal at £8. I will definitely be using this palette from now on - Contour Queens you need this is your life! 💜💜

i recieved this today from GlamGeek from the weekly giveaway and i promise i am NOT being cliche and joining in with all the 5stars that claim this is amazing, i TRULY do think so! i've only used it once (today ) and I AM IN LOVE I PROMISE, the shades are so helpful for a light contour or a deep contour, this is perfect for parties, school and work! this really does deserve its place in the contour category as this is so much better for its price and its pigmentation is out of this world!! no high end nor drugstore can beat this, hands down a versatile palette with space to build up ur look

I love this contour kit! I use this everyday without fail, even for school i use the second shade on the bottom row to contour my face a little and use the banana shade to highlight my under eyes and i use the pink shimmer highlight on my cheekbones to give a sheen, i do love a popping strong highlight but theres my school policy but i think it gives a nice sheen and is the best sheen to have for school or work so it looks like you have a little something rather than using something blinding and looking like a clown at work and school, but honestly id happily use this till the day i die.

I love this contour palette as for the price you get 8 different shades in it, they blend really well and make my skin appear flawless! I have oily skin and i apply this ontop of my foundation and it stays in place all day even when it is hot and sunny outside. The highlighter colours are very pigmented and give your face a good glow that looks amazing but not too 'over the top' and the bronzing colours also look great and are very pigmented. Its an easy palette to use and I would buy again. Great for the price!

Good selection of warm and cool contour colours however they can get that "layer" over the top quite quickly. They blend well and are buildabke although they can sometimes look a bit cakey. The highlights are really good and very pigmented also. Very good price too! Especially for 8 colours!
