This pallete is amazing!!! Love the shades and it's versatility. I take this with me everywhere I travel and I can even create a Smokey eye with this pallete. The 4 shades allow you to mix and match to get the right contoured and bronzed look that you want. Definitely recommend to everyone as it's inexpensive and AMAZING

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.

I actually really ended up enjoying and repurchasing this product. It was really easy to blend into my skin and even though it had shattered I still used it to the last bit because its so good. It gives off great color pay off too! I recommend if you’re a beginner at contouring and even if your advanced its really nice!

I first have to say that ELF is stepping their game up!! This contour palette is so affordable and it works!!

Both of the contouring Browns are rich and pigmented ( very pigmented by the way, a little goes a long way)! The highlight shade is soft and smooth and is so subtle but effective on the skin! My contour lasts all day and doesn’t seem to fade so I am happy with this product.

I’m not a huge fan of the cream colored highlight shade, it’s a bit too yellow when on the skin, but that could just be a problem with my skin tone.

Overall I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for something extremely affordable but still long lasting.

I really love this contour pallet by elf cosmetics. The second deepest shade is perfect for my fair red undertone skin and I love the lightest shade as a setting powder. Overall this pallet is amazing for the price. 10/10 recommend!

SUPER muddy and grey lookinv on the face and they do not blend out at all. I barely tap my brush in and even with the small product I had it just does not want to blend out on the face. I fell in love with the blush palette and when i tried this one out, I was shocked at how different they were.

I love love love this contour palette! I am super impressed with this drugstore find and use it every day. I especially love the highlighting shade, it's super pretty and not extremely intense to the point where it's a little too dramatic for an every day look. So happy with this product!

My friend gave me this for last Christmas and it was the first contour palette I received so I was really excited to try it. However, once I started using this and practicing with it, I realized how chalky and cool toned this is for my warm tone complexion. It doesn't give me a proper contour and looks really bad on my skin tone. In the beginning, I thought I was doing something wrong because it didn't blend well and looked very weird on my skin.. However, once I tried bronzing with the Hoola from Benefit, I realized that the elf one just didn't suit me.. I personally do not like this..

I don’t know if they have a new formula, or I’ve just gotten better at makeup and realize the difference between different palettes, but I feel like this pallete doesn’t have as much pigmentation as it used to have. I’ve already been through 2 and I’m on my third one, so obviously, I really like it. It won’t give me my dramatic desired contour, but I love using it for bronzer. The highlighter color isn’t a popping highlighter but is nice for a small little highlight.

highlighter has good pigmentation and glow to it, the powder foundation is a bit too dark for me but it’s a nice, mattifying, blurring powder, and the contour shade contours nicely and is long lasting. the only problem is that the contour shade can sometimes be pretty hard to blend out.

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?
