LOVE LOVE LOVE! I bought this at Sephora in New York after the workers recommended it to me. The price is a little hefty, but it’s totally worth it!!! The contour cream and powder are perfect and cool toned. The illuminators/highlighters are perfectly subtle but can be built up. Sometimes I use the contour shades to give my eyelid crease a natural hollow. There are also four eyeshadow shades- a bright white, a peachy pink, as well as a light & ruddy dark brown. I LOVE this palette and think it’s worth every cent.

Ok so 5 stars! The only one thing or two that this palette lacks is a blush and a light foundation cream shade that can be mixed with the dark contour cream. If it had those two, it would all I need to carry when I travel plus primer and setting products. The shadows are wonderful and natural looking for every day or night, the browns are so pretty on the eyes; the swatches do not do them any justice at all. The two brown shades are prob. my favorites in this palette. When it comes to contour, I like the cream contour, it's a little challenging to apply the cream highlight on top of a foundation that doesn't set by itself; still do-able. The powder contour and highlight are both wonderful, the contour a little too dark so you just have to go light handed if you are on the light/fair end; the highlight is the most beautiful natural highlight I have seen. I does not have glitter chunks or highlight in your face like most of the current highlights do, yet it's so build-able and beautifully universal. I rotate between this palette and the Tarteist Pro Glow contour & highlight palette, which has a lighter contour powder for me that's easier to apply, but I love the Kevyn Aucoin when I want to do the eyes and face in 1. If you're on the edge for Kevyn Aucoin Palette Contour Book 2 and want the beautiful natural full look, buy it & remember photos don't do it justice.

I've tried this at Sephora, and I really like it. It's a whole contouring kit in one that you can easily take with you. The packaging is beautiful and it blends so beautifully. It's on my wish list.

This palette has such a great value! KA is super expensive so I am glad that they came out with this. I would have liked to see a cover for the cream products as they have gotten a little bit of powder in them and might dry out a little sooner otherwise.

I absolutely love this contour book kit. It is more on the expensive side, but I will tell you why IMO it is way worth it. It cost me $65.00 USD. First of all you are getting Cream Contour, and also a Powder Contour. ABH or KVD Contour Kits are separated into two sets. A powder set, and a cream contour set. (Neither of them include eyeshadow either.) Both of their contour palettes would cost you $35.00 USD each, in total to $70.00, and you still aren't getting an eyeshadow kit either. And Kevyn Aucoin did a wonderful job on matching the tones of the eyeshadows to the contour perfectly! You are able to "contour" your eyes too, and oh... there is a face map and directions on how to contour like a pro!! This is my GO TO and I'm so glad I invested into this one, instead of hopping on the bandwagon with KVD or ABH contour palettes.

I have the Volume 2 Art of sculpting palette, and i LOVE it! So, naturally, when this came out, I immediately purchased it too! It's great because compared to the last version, you get considerably larger pans of product, plus you get the versatility of both cream and powder!
If you haven't tried kevyn aucoin's contour powder or highlighter- you need to try it!! it's absolutely amazing. They are both so beautiful and blend like a dream. If you are on the fence about it Sephora has a mini travel palette for 25.00 which includes 1 contour and 1 highlight shade!

This contouring kit is amazing.  When I open it up, I feel so fancy and elegant (and isn't that how everyone should feel when they use makeup?).  The contour colors are great for anything with fair to medium skin, and look so beautiful and natural.  This kit will give you a subtle sculpted look without looking exaggerated.  The shadows are also lovely

I love this palette. The creams i don't use that much but the powders are nice and creamy and easy to apply. The eyeshadows i think goes well with any skin tone and i think that's what he was going for. It comes with instructions in the front of the book for anyone who is new in contouring which was a nice detail.

I have been getting into contour recently and i cannot seem to find a contour pallet for my skin type. I have light skin, not fair. And I am a redhead so I have ginger coloring. Cannot seem to find a contour pallet to work with my skin. Would this one?
