Everyone seems to be coming out with contour palettes these days; not that I'm complaining as I love a good contour. I'm happy to see affordable options cropping up although some leave a lot to be desired. I bought the City Color Contour palette on a whim (it was one of those items you add last minute to get free shipping). I can honestly say for the price of this palette - $6.83, to be exact - the product is surprisingly good quality. The colors are perfect for contour and are super buttery. The only downside is it can be quite powdery, but because it is so soft it's really easily blended out. Just make sure to dab your brush lightly to avoid fallout as much as possible.
The palette comes with a contour, bronze, and highlight shade. I love the how-to guide on the packaging; if you're not going to provide a mirror, might as well put some useful information on the lid. The pans are also really big in this palette so this will last for quite a while.
I love the contour shade - it's not cool toned but it's also not orange at all. It's really the perfect dark, matte brown for contouring. The bronze is nice without adding shimmer, which is something different from most of my other bronzers. The highlight is a really pretty white highlight which is great for contouring.
The product is so buttery soft it blends really easily. The highlight is super pretty blended out, it gives a nice soft glow to the cheek bones.
I am definitely loving this palette (especially for the price!). Have you ever tried anything from the City Color line before?
