Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Palette
We came, we saw, we contoured! How did we get through the day before Shade+Light??
This contour collection was a game changer for makeup mavericks everywhere! Inspired by an artist’s palette, Kat created six matte shades that look truly stunning on EVERYONE!
The contour and highlight pairs are arranged by undertone, so you get neutral, warm and cool shades! (But you can use all the shades no matter your undertone). Use the deeper contour shades to add natural shadow and depth to your face, then accentuate your best angles with the brighter highlight shades!
Learn how to master three key contouring techniques with the included insert that Kat illustrated herself, or check out our videos section for even more in-depth tutorials.
The formula is SO incredibly fine, we feel like we’re brushing on powdered silk. And speaking of brushes, we made one specifically for this very palette! Read all about our Shade+Light Contour Brush!

- "this contour kit is so good! it blends so well into my powder and you don’t have to blend really hard to get it to do so. the coloring of the contour is perfect for my skin tone (light to medium) and i love the feel of the powder. only downside is i have gone through it pretty quickly because contour requires a bit of powder-& that’s tough when it’s a little pricey." in 1112 reviews
- "i found this palette at tjmaxx for $25 and was so excited to grab it! i really enjoy the lightest shades to set my face and under eye and i can use the two lightest contour shades as bronzer and contour. unfortunately, due to my fair skin tone i don’t think i am going to ever be able to use the darkest of the highlight and contour shades. however, the powders are super soft, smooth and pigmented. this is the only product i own from kat von d and it makes me want to check out some of her other products." in 411 reviews
So it took me a long time to choose the right contour palette when i realized i needed one. However im very glad that my friend suggested to choose exactly this one.
So first. The palette has great pigmentation, it takes only one light strike of a brush for almost all face. Its bery pigmented!
Second. 3 dark shades and 3 light shades. The dark ones much bigger than the light ones, which is very clever!) Colors are great - i use all of them depending on the time of the year and how tanned i am.
Third. The yellow shade is perfect for covering dark circles! I often have those and this delicate yellow doesn't look yellow on my face, but it instantly brightens my face up! Makes it fresh and bright! Love using it!
Fourth. It lasts! I work as a flight attendant and some flights are really busy so i don't have sometimes even a second to check or renew my makeup. However this palette is something you can trust.
I definitely recommend this palette!
Inside the palette there is also a short but useful information/tutorial on how to contour face.
The colors are great. Being on the fair side, I can only use about half the palette. It has lasted me a good long time (I’ve had it for about a year), and I’ve only used two of the colors up, both being highlighters.
I really enjoyed that there are cool and warm tones in this palette. It allows any skin type to utilize the the colors.
The only downside to this pallet is that it had a broken contour color that completely fell out when purchased. This is most likely due to shipping and the store I bought it from. Luckily it was too dark for me to utilize anyways. Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Palette
Check your local Marshall’s + TJ Maxx stores because they changed up the packaging and sent the order ones there. I found it there for $22! Almost HALF the price so I bought it and I love it. Seems like it’ll last a long time, I’ve had it for a month so far and use it every day. It’s worth even the full price.
