Contouring like a Kardashian

I'm back to my blog with an haul/review of a product I randomly find in the web. Here's the story. I was watching Charlotte Crosby's (yes, the Geordie Shore one, she's hilarious) Get Ready With Me video and I noticed she was using a really yummy contour palette.
I immediately went to the comments and I noticed other people eyed the palette and finally, comments after comments, someone said: "it's a Contour Cosmetics palette!".

I went to their website (http://www.contourcosmetics.co.uk) and found the palette in a blink of an eye.
The company is focused on contour products. Little selection but great stuff.
There's 2 versions of the palette: the original and the number 2. The difference is just in colors (the "2" is a bit colder). I read online and a lot of people said they preferred the original anyway so I went and got my Contour Cosmetics baby.

The palette came in a week more or less. It was perfectly packaged in customized paper.
It's made of cardboard (never had a cardboard palette so I'm not sure how it will work) and completely white.
Inside the palette there's a protective clear sheet.
The product is wonderful: creamy but not greasy and super pigmented. Once you use it on the skin it turns matte and almost silky.
The pigmentation is stunning and yes, probably the Original has a bit warmer colors but still really suitable for all skin tones (I'm more of a cold girl). Swatches you see below are one swipe!

The price is...a bit of a downside. I got it during Christmas deals with 20 or 30% discount but the standard price is 42£. For the 6 cream products you have in there it's not super expensive (you pay 7£ per color) but still, if you're not into contour and highlight it's a bit pricey.

Overall, I rate this product a 4.5 out of 5. 

UPDATE: 20% discount until Jan 30 on the website with code JANUARYBLUES20

Would you be interested into buying this? Let me know in the comments!

  1. It sounds amazing but to be honest the price did put me off slightly, I've found products really similar for a lot cheaper! If it goes on sale again like when you bought it I may be tempted haha.

    Great review!

  2. Bellissimi i colori, adoro questa tipologia di prodotto in crema, lo trovo più performante! ^-^
