I've always used powder contour products, but since I'm using a cushion (liquid) foundation that is super dewy, I felt the need to rethink my approach. Some people have downgraded their ratings of this palette because they said the creams were difficult to apply. When they're cold, that's completely true...but if you warm them up with your finger, they blend like magic. The range of colors works perfectly for me (although I haven't used the white one yet), and I'm super pleased with the fact that they last all day. This was a super purchase during their Black Friday sale. Definitely recommended.
