Hello Ladies && Gents,
Recently I made a pretty exciting purchase. I finally picked up a contouring palette!
With so many different brands releasing contour palettes it did take me some time in order to decided which one would be the best choice for me. After much debate and review readings, I settled on the Kat Von D Shade Light Contour Palette. Partly because her products never disappoint me and because her palette really helped bring about the contouring palette obsession of 2015.
Stats: (Curtousy of Sephora.com)
– 3 x 0.16 oz Shade powder in Sombre (true taupe), Shadowplay (soft brown), Subconscious (deep brown)
– 3 x 0.08 oz Light powder in Lucid (pinkish nude), Lyric (yellow beige), Levitation (soft peach)
-Step-by step guide
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
I have been playing with this palette for almost a month now. && it’s safe to say this palette does not disappoint. Kat Von D cosmetics are known for their pigmentation and their blend-ablity (is this a word? probably not. Lets just roll with it). && I have to say this palette does meet those standards to a T.
All these powders are easy to use and simple to blend if you get too contour excited. (which can happen, trust me, one day you’ll just want to carve out your entire face)
Now on me, I have found I prefer Shadowplay (soft brown) for my contouring and the Lucid (pinkish nude) for highlighting. However my by far breakout favorite shade is the Lyric (yellow beige). This shade has become my go to setting powder for under my eyes. (&& this palette has defiantly upped my makeup game)
While I do think these shades are ideal for any one who wants a good contour kit in their makeup arsenal. I do have some things I am not fond of && I think you should consider before taking the jump into purchasing.
First off these shades are not sold individually so, if you run out of your ideal shades you’ll have to repurchases the entire palette again. (insert sad face)
Also, since this platte includes tones for all skin types, you might not be able to use all of the powders for contouring (I do suggest however you use them as eyeshadows, they are lovely powders && shouldn’t be wasted).
Over all I adore this palette && it has become apart of my daily routine. If your interested in experimenting with contouring, or your seasoned in the art of makeup, I think this palette is defiantly worth picking up.
What is your current makeup obsession? I would love to know! (leave it in the comments below)
