Hi everyone, hope you are all having a wonderful day!
If you’ve seen my last post “Products worth the splurge” then you will have seen I had included a very special product; the Anastasia Beverley Hills Contour Kit. I had written a very short review on the previous post so I though I would write a more substantial post on this fabulous product.
The great thing about the palette is that you only need the slightest bit of product, which means it, lasts forever. My mum so kindly bought this for me over a year ago whilst she was in New York. Over that time the pan does not even have the slightest dip. However, the strong pigmentation does mean you have to be careful as you don’t want to create harsh, muddy lines on the face.
Although I absolutely love this palette, I do not personally use all of the shades. My favorite shade out of the whole palette is called “fawn” as it is basically the most perfect colour for contouring your cheekbones. It’s the perfect mixture of orange and brown and looks like a natural shadow cast on the face. The only other contour shade I use is “Java” and mainly use this for bronzing up the face and neck. For my pale skin tone the last contour colour “Havana” is just a bit too intense and orangy for me personally. It also has a red tinge whereas I prefer a more ashy/orange tone in a bronzer.
Now on to the setting and highlighting powders in the palette. The first colour is called “Vanilla” and is a creamy setting powder. It’s absolutely amazing for setting concealer under the eyes for everyday as the product barely moves. However, for evenings I tend to use the colour “Banana” which is such a holy grail. This powder honestly makes your under eyes appear flawless. I also use this under my contour to further sculpt my face on special occasions. The highlight in the palette is called “Sand” and if I am honest I was expecting it to be more pigmented and create more of a glow. It is very subtle and hardly shows up on my face unfortunately which is a shame as it is such a pretty shade.
Overall, I would highly recommend this palette. It comes in at £39 for six shades which is definetly excellent value for the quality and the amount of product you get. Although, I only use four out of the six shades, buying the four shades individually at £14 would cost more than buying the entire palette. I also love how the shades are removable so when you eventually finish a powder you can just replace it with your finished shade for £14 instead of having to buy a whole new palette.
Hope you enjoyed this review and let me know what you guys think of this product!!
