I absolutely love this kit, all of the powders are smooth, blend well, and work for all different skin tones. They also work well as eye shadows! However , the only thing this pallette needs is the option to purchase refills, as some consumers use certain shades more than others depending on their skin tone, instead of having to purchase the whole kit again, that can be a deterent.
The contours and the highlighters in this kit are soft, buttery and blend beautifully. The contour shades are cool but warm skinned ladies need not be afraid of that because I really think the cool tones create a better shadow effect. Once I get the contour shades properly blended in it doesn't look like makeup at all, it looks like a real shadow. There is no way the orangey tones that will ever look like natural shadow in my opinion. I also appreciate that the highlighters are matte because I can't be brushing shimmery powder all over my face.I am no makeup artist but contouring and highlighting with this palette was easy. I used a very light hand so that I wouldn't make any irreversible mistakes and I expect to get better with practice but even my first time using this was a success. Everyone interested in contouring should consider this palette.
The bronzing shades are amazing! They are not too orange and they look really well on my warm asian skin tone. Although the darkest shade is too dark for me, I manage to use it under my jawline to contour. All the shares are VERY buttery and smooth. I also love the yellow highlighting shade in the middle, which is the only highlighting shade I use in this palette. Will probably repurchase this if it runs out! i like that this is also refillable which is great!! you can buy only the product you need
