I’ve been looking for a good contour palette for a while now and after reading some good reviews on this I was really excited to try it out.
I really like the packaging of the e.l.f. blush, contour and highlight palette because you can remove a pan from one palette and switch it with another. They are fairly lightweight and sturdy – good for travelling.
The formula is not the best; it is powdery and not very pigmented. They do feel buttery and honestly, I don’t mind that the contour shade (bottom right) isn’t pigmented because I can slowly build it up and it doesn’t look too intense but I wish that the bronzer (bottom left) had more pigmentation. The highlight shade is very light – almost white and it has a slight glow but is very subtle. I’m not exactly sure what the top right side is suppose to be – a bronzer/powder? but it isn’t useful at all for me because it’s too light to be a bronzer and too dark to be a face powder.
Swatched multiple times to build up color (shade light/medium). Left to right: highlight, powder?, bronzer and contour.
Overall, I’m not impressed with this contour palette and my search will continue. If you want to check out a contour palette that I would recommend click here.
