I wouldn't call this a contour palette. The shades are way too warm to be used for a contour. Even with the option to mix the shades, as the product info suggests, there is no way to get a proper contour shade. Now, as a blush and bronzer palette, now we have something. The shades are very warm with red/orange undertones and a brown base. Both of the darker shades are pigmented. I really did not favor the highlight. It lacked pigmentation or any umph. I would only recommend this to beginners and not for contouring, but for bronzing.
