City Color Cosmetics Contour Effects Palette
This contour palette is ok. Just ok... It's very comparable to the Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit as far as packaging goes. You can buy this palette on Amazon but be careful because a lot of people have ordered this palette and it arrived in pieces. If you do end up buying this product make sure you put powder on to set your foundation because it can apply patchy. Overall I would invest in a better contour palette or even just a good bronzer. I would recommend Too Faced Soleil Matt Bronzer, it smells like chocolate and it does a great job or the Anastasia contour kit.
This pallet is very pigmented it does not take much to get color on to your brush, i would not say this is for all skin tones the bronzer and contour are perfect for medium to dark skin tones, But i don't think it would look right on fair skin, The highlight is blinding its very shimmery and glittery it would look nice on most skin tones. The instructions are very clear and straight foward even giving you an example it is a great product and i recommended it to anyone looking for an easy contour pallet, Good luck!
Unfortunately, the deepest brown is a bit too dark for me to use any time but in the winter. The bronzing shade is actually my go to for my contour color, as I do have fairly light skin. The highlighter shade was a bit dissappointing to me. It didn't give off that much of a highlight as it did just make my face super white. I won't be repurchasing.
This was my very first pallet for learning how to contour right. I found at five below store for 3.99$ I believe. It's great for the price, but a little too pigmented for my taste. Some useful tips included inside, which is also really helpful. I will recommend for someone who is just learning makeup tricks and doesn't want to spend money
I am super happy with my holiday gift to myself! I wanted a cheap contour kit to try out before I mastered the technique. This was under $8 on Amazon. Comes with the highlighter, bronzer, contour, 3 options Plus a reference on package. Colors are perfect and not cheap at all. Really happy with the purchase
This was my first contour palette and i have to say it didn't give me the best impression of contouring. the heavy pigment could be good for deeper skin tones but for me it was too much, especially since it was hard to blend. the highlight was also very subtle and very hard to build. i gave this to a friend
hola! esta paleta es una de las mejores del mercado, su acabado es perfecto, no es necesario aplicar tanta cantidad para que el rostro quede contorneado e iluminado y esto permite que dure mas la paleta. desde que lo compre me a resultado un producto excelente y lo volvería a comprar las veces necesarias,
I bought this as my first contour set and even though I had no knowledge of how to contour, it was really easy to learn how to use it. However I wouldn't recommend it as it doesn't really do very good job at contouring and it fades away and rubs off very easily even when I apply a facial setting spray.
This was my first contouring kit I've ever purchased. The bronzer is very warm and the contour is a cooler toned brown. The only thing I didnt like was the highlight. It is very white and very difficult to blend out. Although it is shimmery, I didnt think it went with the rest of the kit.
This contour palette is not bad, but it's also not that good. the fallout from this palette is so bad & doesn't show up that well on skin. it blends easily but looks as if you didn't even put anything on (if you're looking for that extremely subtle look, then this is the palette for you)
