Dupes

Dupes for KKW Crème Contour and Highlight Kit

Based on 15,756 Influenster Reviews

Now that the hype has subsided a bit, with the general consensus of beauty reviewers being a "pass," we've put together a list of products to spend your money on instead of the KKW Beauty product. 

Dubbed the queen of contouring, Kim Kardashian launched the creme contouring/highlighting sticks with the intent of sharing her contour "secrets" with the world, but for a number of reasons (size, chalkiness, limited colors, quality) we think skipping this product for one of the dupes below is a much more savvy option.

Influensters love these contouring sticks for their ease of use, blending abilities, and price tag. So if you're still wondering whether or not you should pass–just listen to what our users had to say!

Do you have a good dupe option? Don't forget to leave a review!

This is by far the best contour product that I have used. It goes on super easy with fool proof instructions, and even comes with a blending sponge. I was nervous about trying it, but I'm so happy I did. It's available at Ulta and was reasonably priced. I'm honestly obsessed! ...read more

I'm so happy with this product. I use this to intensify my contour and it's so easy to use! The formula is so creamy and pigmented! And it's as easy as drawing on your face. I like to use a duo fiber brush or beauty blender to blend this out. I always receive compliments when I take the extra steps to use this product! I like to top it with a bronzer, and it even prolongs the life of my contour and keeps it from getting muddy! ...read more

I've never been really good at makeup, but with this stick the contouring has been much easier to me. It's really easy to apply and it stays on all day long. I really recommend it if you never have enough time for your makeup, this really saves time in the morning. ...read more

Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick
Our Take

This is a foundation stick that has a built-in natural/soft contour on the other side. Win-win!

Stephanie M.Stephanie M. said...
 I'm obsessed with stick foundations and this foundation looked really natural on the skin. Not cakey or heavy at all. I was however kind of skeptical of trying a cream contour stick. I have only used powders in the past but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised, by not only how easy it was to blend out but also how well it complemented the foundation. I would definitely get this product again!!!  ...read more

If you want a highlighting stick, their Watt's Up! Cream-to-powder highlight is a fan favorite as well!

Ladies, if you want a super quick & easy cream contour product; THIS IS IT. I originally bought this during prom season when a client requested cream contour. I ended up using this on all of my clients because I fell in love after using it just one time, on someone else! Unbelievably easy to blend & it leaves such a flawless finish! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a good cream contour, definitely worth the money! ...read more

I'm always looking for dupes to expensive makeup, and I've got to say this could have fooled me for a higher end product-the quality is great. I purchased this a while ago to start cream contouring, and I never want to go back to powder! I used the shade 'light' and it matches perfectly! I love both the contour side and the highlighting side. It blends the contour so effortlessly (I use a damp beauty blender) and it's flawless, I just wish there were more product. The highlight is a natural glow, this is a staple in my makeup drawer ...read more

When I first uncapped this chubby stick, I was a little intimitated by the color. It is a little dark for any contour cream I would normally use, but after applying and blending it, it was so natural I couldn’t believe it.
Applying this product is so easy, even beginners to contouring can use it and get a perfect look! The end is a little wider than I like, but using the edge rather than the top of the stick creates a thinner line to blend out. Normally, I would use a brush to blend the product out, but I found it easier and more natural looking to just blend with my fingers! ...read more

Our Take

Last but not least, you could also choose to buy a foundation stick in a light and dark shade to contour with! This Maybelline one is a great option–NYX and Anastasia Beverly Hills also have options that are cheaper than KKW!

I'm a budget shopper, and was intrigued by the widely popular contouring method. I grabbed two shades lighter, and two shades darker (lightest and toffee), and tried it out the next day. Though I did have to blot my face a little after five hours (darned combination skin and hot weather!!), it didn't look unnatural. These blended extremely well (whether I used a Blender or a brush), were pretty cheap, and totally necessary! It gives you that summer glow, but won't make you look orange and streaky (they're relatively neutral toned, not warm aka orange). It's a very natural, shadowed finish when used this way- my friends complimented me and I was even used as a "perfect makeup example" in my sorority for composite photos and recruitment! ...read more
