The Best Prestige Contouring Kits: 57K Reviews

Based on 57,491 Influenster Reviews

Add depth and dimension to your face by contouring it. How do you contour? Map your face by drawing lines or marks with your preferred products. Darker colors can go around your temples, in the hollows of your cheekbones, along your jawline, down the sides of your nose, and just below your bottom lip. Blend these colors into your foundation and then apply your lighter color under your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, in the center of your forehead and your chin, just inside the lines you drew in the hollows of your cheekbones, and in your Cupid's Bow. 

Influensters have left more than 50K reviews on contouring kits and we've scoured them to determine the best contouring kits that exist. Check out our list and be sure to review your most-used contouring products!

I think ABH contour palettes are still some of the best on the market. For the most part these very easy to use and are great quality for the price.

The original powder contour palette (pictured, shade Medium) is pigmented and very blendable. I would highly recommend this for beginners/those new to makeup. The colors are very flattering for a variety of skin tones and there is a good mix of cool/warm tones . The only con I can think of is that it can look muddy if you go overboard but that is hard to do. I'd also note that now you can purchase single contour/highlight shades on the ABH website and build your own palette so that is a HUGE plus, imo.

The cream contour kit (Shade Medium, pictured) is a little bit more challenging as the creams are extremely pigmented and more time consuming to blend out. I prefer to use this palette underneath my foundation as this makes it look more natural on me and the result is really beautiful. The contour shades in the cream palette definitely lean towards the warm scheme of things once blended out but still give great shape to the face. Overall, the powder kits are great for beginners and those in a hurry while the cream contour kit is best suited for those who are a little more advanced at contouring or have the time to work with/blend out the formula-although the result is worth it. ...read more

This contour palette is awesome and I really enjoy that it's kinda simplified with only a few options depending on the look you're going for that day (deeper more dramatic, or lighter more cool toned natural), a lot of the contour palettes I see on the market today have so many corrector shades, so many different brown tones (contour/bronzer) and I think it's really quite nice that this particular palette only has a few that make it really simple and easy for someone who's just getting started out in contouring and highlighting, even those more experienced like myself can appreciate this layout. The two darker shades I use regularly depending on my skin tone and look that day but the two lighter shades are the iffy ones, the plain matte highlight is good for under eye setting if you're more pale but that's about it- it will not in any way highlight you. And the "shimmery" highlight is an absolute dud (this is the sad part about this palette) there is little to no color pay off. ...read more

I've struggled finding the best contour kit for a while! I've gone from Anastasia Beverly Hills both creme & powder contour palettes, the NYX contour palette, the Shade & Light Palette and many more.. I could never land on the perfect one. At first, I thought it was my foundation so I played with it and tried different techniques but all the contour shades were either too dark for me, would get blotchy and/or dry, or would just fade away throughout the day. I decided to try the Lorac Pro Contour Palette & let me tell you! Sweet baby Jesus! Since I am extremely white (No Joke!) the colors suited me nicely. The palette comes with 2 matte highlight shades, 1 shimmer highlight (Great for the inner corners/ tear duct) and 3 different contour shades. Did I forget to mention it comes with a brush?! Yes! This palette hands down is the best I've tried. I've already hit pan on both of the highlighting shades! I definitely see myself buying more of these palettes! The shades are to die for! ...read more

I am a newbie at contouring, and still learning, but I find this kit incredibly easy to use. The contour, bronzing and highlighting shades all blend very well, and give a beautiful, polished, smooth look. I love it! Even the brush it brings is not bad and is perfect for applying the contour shade to my cheek hallows. I love that the shades are matte because I don't like a sparkly face. The highlighter is not shimmery either, it looks to be more of a satin finish which is nice. The highlighter also works well as an under eye concealer setting powder. All 3 shades work beautifully together and compliment each other well, resulting in an even-looking contour. It even has a mirror and brings a little pamphlet that tells you where to place the shades depending on your face shape. Also very important to note, is that it is long wearing and it doesn't break me out at all! Definitely recommend it! I'm a big fan! ...read more

I love how the Tarteist Contour Palette has everything you need right at your fingertips! It's also perfect for on-the-go use if you constantly travel, or are going on a trip. Sometimes it can be a pain to take a single blush, a contour kit, a highlighter, and a brightening powder, etc. But this kit has everything all in one little convenient compact with a mirror included. It's so pretty in person and the texture of the powders are nice and creamy, and very blendable. I also looove the blush color! I use it with the dual ended contour brush that is also sold by Tarte. I recommend this product for anyone looking for a contour kit that has it all, and also if you are new to contouring, because it is a great tool for beginners. :) ...read more
