This is my favorite drugstore contour palette. I can’t get enough of the results (especially for the price). It contains vitamin E so it isn’t drying at all and melts into my skin giving it a smooth and even appearance. Due to the color options I’m able to use it in both summer and winter when the color of my skin is completely different. It is also buildable so I can achieve a natural or dramatic looked depending on what I’m going for. It’s lightweight and blends effortlessly. I really appreciate how forgiving it is. If I use too much on my brush I am able to blend vs completely starting over. The light/medium ended up matching my skin perfectly. I love using my sculpting and highlighting brushes for a perfectly contoured look! I would definitely recommend this palette it’s easy to use and does a beautiful job.

I costume (or cosplay) for a living and love transforming myself into other people and characters for the costumes I recreate. So having a good contour palette, to help change my face shape, is a must for me!

I've been an e.l.f. customer for almost 7 years, so I had to give their contour palette a shot. I'm glad I did! It works great for me, and I can use the bottom right contour shade to completely redefine my face shape and transform myself when I'd like!

I really love this palette! The contour colors are just right for my complexion,and they blend easily and beautifully! The only color I don't like in this palette is the white shimmery highlight powder,as it isn't the type of highlight that I normally like. However,I use both the contour colors and the cream colored powder,and they all look great! They don't make my skin look heavy,and they don't break up my foundation or look patchy on my skin.
I would recommend this product,but I want to say that it likely won't even come close to working if you have a deep skin tone. I would recommend it more to pale/tan/ medium-ish skin tones. But if this would work for your skin tone,I highly recommend it! It's around $10,I believe,and the pans can pop out so you could change them around if you have one of their other palettes to create a custom palette.

I absolutely LOVE this palette. The first experience I had with it was actually doing makeup at school for the musical. The formula is amazing, it blends so easily and quickly, and it is very pigmented so you can look completely sculpted with poweder alone. Although it is the light variation on the palette, it is suitable for many skin tone, with the exception of very dark skin (but there is a dark variation of the palette as well). 

I also have the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette, and although that has two more shades, this E.L.F contour palette achieves very similar results - for a fraction of the price. This is a great product and I highly recommend it, especially to anyone on a budget.

Great for the $$$$

I find this to be more of a bronzing palette. the colors are very warm, so if you're pale, this will probably look a little warm on your skin. I use this as a bronzer now because my face would look orange if used it as a contour. also i don't see much color difference between any of the shades once they're applied to the skin.

This product is amazing! I think it’s one of the best contour palettes you can find at the drugstore, and it’s only $6.00! The contour shade and bronzer are amazing! They blend beautifully on the skin and last all day! They don’t seem super pigmented when you swatch it, but when applied to the face you end up not needing a lot. You also get a yellow shadow to set your under eye and highlight for an everyday look. Such a great palette at such an inexpensive price!

This was the first contour kit I bought when I was trying to learn how to contour. I loved this palette, very easy to apply and not too much fall out. Definitely use primer, and I ended up using a cream contour kit first and then applying this powder over it to give myself a matte finish. I think the palette was a little too light for my skin color but can’t knock the product! I would still buy this brand and kit again, and continue combining it with my cream palette since it works for me right now.

I couldn’t love this palette any more! I went through a whole one, and found myself buying a second one. The countor powder doesn’t look dusty, and the bronzer is not too orange. The banana powder brightens my face just right, sometimes I even use it when I want to go for a matte highlight. I’m not the biggest fan of the highlighter, but that’s just because it’s too light for me. Totally recommend this product!

Colors blend pretty well. Would compare this product to Smashbox Step By Step Contour Kit br cheaper and more accessible in the rural area. Can buy at Walmart and even Meijer. Very cheap and has a nice formula. No more than $10. Powder contour.

I have been in search of a contour palette for a while now. I haven't dabbled too much in contour yet but I want to. Has anyone used this product and if so how 'user friendly' was it? Also did anyone have any issues with the pressed powder breaking?
