Most Helpful Positive Review MED-DARK Palette on Olive Tan Skintone (MAC NC40-42)
I am back to review the darker perfector face palette. Wow!! Just Wow!! I thought I loved the lighter version, but this definitely adds the punch I was looking for.
Where the lighter version gave you that bridal soft look, this one turns that romance up a notch. An easy night look can be created. (Who am I kidding? Its a day look for me, too. )
The contour is a very punchy contour and can make the look very sharp. I apply it sparingly and it blends out just fine. Do not, I repeat do not, load that brush and expect to be able to blend it out softly. It is too pigmented for that.
The finishing powder gives me a perfect sun-kissed glow. I have such a hard time finding the correct bronzer, and this one... wow. All I can say is, FINALLY!
The blush is a beautiful dark apricot that I apply on my cheekbones for an earthy look. (It reminds me a lot of Mac's Burnt Pepper and provides a fantastic dupe with better ingredients. wink. wink.)
Again, the highlighters are to be expected. You can have subtle to blinding highlight, and that brightener on the inner corner and even tops of cheek bones is sooo extra, but in a good way! I want a full version of this, PRONTO!
Like its namesake, this palette is Perfection. LOVE LOVE!
Most Helpful Critical Review Useless for Olive/Tan skintones
They really should create a medium/tan. The medium/deep is not at all suited for medium skin tones, but seems great for deep tones. It's way too dark for my olive skin, and the contour shade on the medium, while great, is just a tad lighter than I would like. I have to use a lot of product for it to look good. The blush on the medium/deep palette is useless. It's straight up reddish BROWN. If you are looking at the shades wondering if either will work, don't waste your money. It doesn't work for medium tan skin tones.

The colors are so soft and pretty. They give a beautiful glow and there are so many different ways to use it.
Good for someone who isn't a makeup expert
Shay from Mount sterling Kentucky
I very much enjoy using this palette. It's light and blends well. I do not do my makeup as good as many people and I feel more confident using this product because of how good it does on my skin.
Krissy86 from GEORGIA
Versatile palette, great mirror, perfect for on the go looks (literally, in the car on the way looks). Blinding, gorgeous highlighters. The contour and blush are both perfect as well!
I think mine is defective
Sara from New York
I've been eyeing this pallet for close to a year! I loved the whole concept. It's amazing for mommy's out there that need everything in one to get out of the house fast! I tried my friends and I LOVED it. I finally bought my own. Ours are completely different. We bought them not even a month apart. Mine is very chalky compared to my best friends. I'm very sad about it! I would have totally given this 5 stars but mine just isn't right.
Absolutely love this face palette.
Shell987 from Colorado
This is seriously one of the best face palettes. I love both highlighters, the blush is a really great shad as well it goes with most looks, the contour shade is not too warm toned. The only thing in this palette that I'm not a huge fan of is the finishing powder. It has small flecks of glitter which I don't really care for but other than that I use this palette frequently.
Perfect face palette.
Shell87 from Colorado Springs
I just got this and I couldn't be more pleased with it. All the colors are beautiful, they blend nicely and it's so convenient.
Great travel palette
Jill from Orlando, FL
I love Cover FX powders and blushes, so I decided the palette would be great for travel. I was disappointed to find the palette was broken when it arrived. At this time the palette is not sold in stores.
Beautiful, but small for the price
Meg from Florida
The colors and formula is quite nice. The amount of product and size itself is a bit small for the price, but overall a great palette. The brightener is So beautiful and has to be my favorite part!
Nice formula (got this in a boxycharm)
broke_beauty_ from MetroDetroit
The formula is rather lovely and bendable but if you are truly fair/light this is too dark! This needs about three more in the range in my opinion and not have that pink blush! Good product for light-medium skin but if you are porcelain skinned toned like me you end up looking like a bruised clown.
Nearly my whole makeup bag in one pallet!!
Flower from San Bernardino
The whole pallet works amazing & is super convenient! It's awesome to find a set like this where every part of it looks beautiful and works amazing: I've honestly cut my time in half doing my face makeup since I'm not using so many products to contour and highlight!
Powerkitten from New caney TX
This blush is great in my skin tone. I can honestly never find colors for myself. I got this pallets through a box subscription at first and I had to buy a second one already.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

By far my favorite contouring palette! I received this is my body charm and I love it so much!
Lis from Chicago
Light Shade. Love the contour and finishing powder! The mirror is a plus, unfortunately I do not use highlighters but they are so pretty
Favorite contour palette ever

Love the colors works amazing blends great live this palette
Vanny from VA
Absolutely love this! My sister who isn't huge into makeup is obsessed with this. It's the only contour and highlight she uses now and it's def her holy grail. They blend like a dream and I'd highly recommend this!
rich colors, amazing quality
Jany from Ft. Lauderdale
I'm on the light side of medium and bought the medium deep because I wanted something besides the run of the mill stock pinky peach blush and sea of similar looking highlighting powders in so many face palettes. While I do need to use a lighter hand, I am love with the tone of these blushes. Again, not the same old pink. This palette in medium-deep offers dark berry to brick rose to rich terra-cotta shades and champagne/golden blush topper and highlight. So happy with this palette. Worth the price. Cover FX is fantastic quality.
Nice, but not for fair/light skin tones
Tabtaml08 from Sheboygan, wi
I got this in a boxycharm and I have been experimenting with it. I have fair skin and the pallet is a little too dark for me, though the pallet does say light-medium. If they came out with a fair-light pallet, I would probably love it. I can mix the brightening powder with the highlights to make them light enough. The contour and blush can be sheered out enough to be usable, the contour is more of a bronzer shade on me though. I can use the finishing powder as a really light, natural blush. I can definitely tell the products are good quality and I'll still be able to get a lot of use out if it, but it won't be the go to pallet I was hoping it would be because of how dark everything is.
Must have!!!for all skintones!!!
Mimi from Alabama
I got the medium/deep & let me tell you this palette is so bomb... the bronzer & highlighters are the best/my favs....I had to write a review to let me poc/woc know how good it is..sooo glad boxycharm added it to my boxy....
Continue to buy bc it's easy access

Often on the go. Having one compact makes travel/daily life so much easier compared to carrying around multiple products.

I got this in my boxycharm and I love it
Love love love!
Autumn from In
This is my go-to all-in-one palette. I love every single shade. I'm very pale so I use the two highlight shades more as blush toppers and the brightener shade is a beautiful cheek and in corner highlight. I use the contour color more as a bronzer and the blush is beautiful. The finishing powder shows glitter in the pan but it doesn't show up on the skin. I use it to set my face and have never noticed any glitter on my face. I can't say enough good things about this palette. I use it for my eyes as well when I'm in a hurry. Perfect for travel! If I have one gripe it would be the finishing powder and the bronzer could be bigger pans and the highlights could be smaller since you don't really use that much highlighter compared to the others.
I would buy this again
Lee from Houston
I use this product daily. I want to buy just the finishing powder bc it is amazing and gives you a natural glow while also setting your makeup for the day.
airay from Colorado
I got this in a Boxycharm earlier this year. At first, I loved everything but the finishing powder (literally looks like I dumped some fine craft glitter in a loose powder and dusted it on my face). I liked that the blush could be blended to a more sheer color, highlighters are stunning, contour can easily be used as a bronzer. It was all good. Until about a month ago. I noticed some spots on one of the highlighters first and just thought it was hard pan. Then it started happening to the blush, and now it's in the contour. Looking at the highlighter, they seem like beads in there. After messing with it some, I could literally remove the beads, roll them around between my fingers, and have all the highlighter removed and still have a bead on my fingers. When I crushed one, it was black inside! I washed my face and stopped using it immediately! I have no clue what that black stuff was, but I'm not taking any chances!
There needs to be three shades...
broke_beauty_ from Detroit
I got the fair/medium in a boxycharm and it's too dark. It really does need a shade lighter because the highlighters I can't use and the finishing powder is darker than my foundation.
Chelsy from Ohio
I got this in a boxycharm one month and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I use everything except the blush but only because the blush color doesn't suit me, it is a very good quality blush though. My favorite is the bronzer / contour shade and the top right highlighter.
