Contour & Sculpt Yourself Palette

I've been a fan of contour and highlighting for a while now and have been looking into different palettes to purchase. Originally I wanted to create a custom palette from MAC but after realizing it would cost $112 with other similar products costing $40-60 decided that was wayyyy too much to spend, even if the blushes last forever. That's when I came across the Contour and Sculpt Yourself Palette. Priced at only $60 (for some of the same exact same colors I originally wanted) I decided to jump on it. Even though I couldn't choose my colors to create a truly custom palette, there were only 2 blushes I actually wanted to replace and I figured I could update the colors as I used them up.

This is the palette with the colors that are included. The first two are Sculpt and Emphasize which are used for contouring and highlighting. These are colors I was looking to buy originally so I'm happy they came in the palette. The next two are Trace Gold and Sunbasque. These two are pretty shimmery  giving you that glowing look. The Trace Gold seems to blend into the contour color for my skin tone so I'm not really in love with it. Sunbasque is pretty nice and definitely darker than Trace Gold. Not necessarily a color I'd choose on my own, but I've used it twice in the last week so I guess that speaks for itself. The next two are matte colors called Peaches and my go-to all time favorite, Fluer Power. Originally I wanted Melba which is just slightly pinker than Peaches, but I barely notice a difference between the two when they're not right next to each other. Fleur Power is a nice bright pink that I've used since college. It's my favorite blush and I love, love, love it. All of the blushes are very pigmented and go on flawlessly. Below you can see them swatched on my fair skin, all were coated and swiped three times.

For anyone looking to upgrade to a palette this is one of the many choices out there but I'm really happy with the colors that were included.

Let me know if there are any questions you have on the palette or the colors that are included.
