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 bought this when I first started getting into more advanced makeup looks. This is a great pratice palette, great for beginners who want to start bronzing and contouring. I don't like the highlight that comes with this palette. It is too shear for my liking, but overall this is a cheap drugstore product, so it's going to preform like one. This is cheap and it does work. The formula is very powery and has a lot of fall out. I wish there were other palettes with a better color option. I know they have a darker palette for the people with deep skin, but lets face it, there are not only 2 skin tones in the world.

I got this when I just started makeup a few years ago and needed a very affordable contour palette to practice with. This is a great practice palette if you're new to makeup and don't want to spend on high end products yet. But this palette is chalky AF and has barely any color payoff, but you get what you pay for, I got mine for $6 at target. I have fair-light skin with neutral undertone and this doesn't look good on me. I wouldn't recommend if you have the money to buy a higher end contour palette like kat von d, but if you are just starting makeup, this is fine for you.

This palette is really pretty. It has a good bronzer shade and a good shade for contouring. The two other shades are good for setting under your eyes or the rest of your face. If your fair skinned like I am, you may only use the contour shade. I only get a good use out of the contouring shade, the other one is far too warm for me. Overall it’s a good beginners palette and great for the price! They also have a cream one i think which id like to pick up!

Really liked this product, very easy to apply I got it at target and it came as a bundle deal with the brushes and everything which is great if you’re new with make up it pretty much explains to you how you should apply it. I’m not much of a powder user but this is great and very light on the skin. Would definitely recommend & if you find the bundle while recommend even more since then you will have the brushes you should be using and will make it so much better and easier to apply.

Oh Elf. When you get it right, boy do you get it right, but you get it wrong, I think this is it. I find this contour palette has pretty low pigmentation. The highlight is almost gray and the shimmer goes away pretty quickly. Because of the low pigmentation, the bronzer shade is really the only one that I like. The mirror is quite nice though, I use it pretty often when applying my eyeshadow. This palette is considered a good start for beginners and contouring, but I find it only frustrates and confuses.

I really liked the cream contour kit, compared to the powder. I have Olive, combination skin and this didn’t fit my skin tone or type really. I purchased this at target, the same as my cream contour elf palette. Wasn’t impressed with these powders. They were SO hard to blend, became patchy when I tried desperately to blend them. This product needs reformulated.

I am really getting into contouring and this was the first palette that I ever purchased. I ended up giving this to my younger sister to play around with because it was not the best contour palette that I've had. It is not pigmented at all but it is definitely affordable. I think it is more for light-medium skin tones and it can be purchased at any retail store like Target, Walmart, or Walgreens. I would not recommend this to others because of the lack of pigmentation.

This is a very good contour palette. The packaging feels very nice and pigmentation is there. The powders are very soft, long lasting and makes your skin look natural. The shades don’t have an orange tone like some palettes do and I will say this is a must purchase to add to your collection. :)

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?
