Review: Anastasia Contour Kit10:33 PM
I'll admit it. I'm a complete 100% newbie when it comes to the world of contouring and highlighting. This technique strategically using shadows and highlights to trick the eye has been used by makeup artists for ages. Have you ever wondered how drag queens or Kim Kardashian get those amazing chiseled cheek bones? Well, it's usually through the magical illusion of a professionally contoured face.
After months of waiting for it to come back in stock, I picked up the light/medium palette at Sephora. The palette itself consists of six shades. Three for contouring, and three for highlighting. The highlights: A pink-toned shimmery shade, a yellow-toned "banana" powder, and a warm-toned matte beige powder. For contour: A deep matte warm bronze, a cool-toned brown, and a neutral-to-warm matte brown.
I would recommend this product to anybody just starting out in the contouring world and would like a simple palette with everything in one place. It's a great kit to experiment with in order to gain more comfort with using the technique.
I would not recommend this product to anybody who wants super-pigmentation from the get go. The shades definitely need to be built up. Also, if you're looking for a super intense highlight powder (like theBalm Mary Louminizer), I'd look elsewhere.
