Most Helpful Positive Review ATTENTION: MUST HAVE.
Not going to lie, I was pretty hesitant to buy this. I already own so much makeup, including contour kits from Anastasia, Smashbox, Kat Von D, Too Faced, Nars, Makeup Forever (to name a few, haha!) and have to say this is my favorite - amazing and great quality for a more than reasonable price. The range of colors is impressive, color pay off is wonderful, blends easily on to skin and lasts all day when paired with a good primer. The packaging is sleek, sturdy and not too bulky. Not too much fall out when swiped with a brush. No caking or product build up. Doesn't accentuate pores. A+ in my book :) Great for beginners, intermittent and experts to contouring!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for Deeper Complexions, Super Dissapointed
I was super excited when I saw this was coming out, unfortunately the product is disappointing. Its DEFINITELY NOT made for African American women with deeper skin tones. Most of the colors are chalky with exception on #1, #6, and #8. The highlighters were way light/chalky. #1 does have a nice shimmer though. I tired numerous ways of trying to make this colors work to no avail. I would hope that NYX comes out with more Chocolate Girl friendly tones. (as they have in some of their other products) I really want this palette to be a winner! :-(

I like using it. Can look a bit powdery if you use too much so a little goes a long way and build from there.
Nikkidreamer from California
It looks powdery on my skin and sometimes it would come out patchy. It can definitely be built upon to darken or highlight your face, but some of the highlighters were too light and then it was difficult to blend them. It gets the job done, but it is not the best contour palette out on the market.
I love this simple yet effective contour pallet
Nickle from Houston, Tx
I love the shades provided by the pallet. The only thing I wish I could do is customize this pallet with the contour color as well as the highlight color I use more than the rest. Overall, it's a great go to if you don't mind a powder contour.
Great contour palette
Charity Nicole from NY
I don't know why I never bought this sooner. I used to use sticks for contouring but never felt it looked right. I bought this for all the great reviews, and I'm so glad I did.
Easy to use, would buy again
Stella from Los Angeles
Love this palette. Has both warm and cool tones so everyone can use it. Easy to pick up the color and blend into skin
Feels like play makeup...
Rachel from TX
I was really excited to try this product, but the lack of pigment and uneven application is really disappointing. I have to hold the bristles of my brush together and press them firmly into the dishes to pick up any pigment at all. It takes a lot more than it should to build the product, and it reminds me of the play makeup that I had as a little girl. The shimmery highlighter doesn't match the other tones in the pallet well and looks cakey and is really difficult to blend out. I wanted to love it and have a new easy contour kit, but this is not it. Worth half its price.
Did the formula Change?
salos3 from Kingsville,TX
I've used this product before and loved it. Not sure if the product formula changed but it was not easy to use. I'm having a difficult time getting the product on my brush.
All in one set...
CarlaK from Illinois
I love that this set has all I need for highlighting and contouring. Good coverage and I use without makeup sometimes.
susie q from orange county ca
i love this palette it's super blendable and smooth goes on very nice
Smell is cheap
Indian summer from CA
I like the pigment and the contour blends in well. Not chalky or anything. Nothing wrong with this. If u are on a budget, buy this. The only thing that bothers me is the smell.
Almost a perfect dupe!
EvAngela from Traverse City, Michigan
I have used the Anastasia powder contour palette for years, and have sworn by it. Well I officially scrapped the last bit of powder I had left a couple of weeks ago, and was about to order another palette when I stumbled on this. I'm shocked by the quality, pigment, and how easy it is to blend! I let a few of my friends, who also exclusively use ABH contour, and they agreed too. It's almost a perfect dupe, for almost half the price!
easy to blend
Bree from Wisconsin
this is my favorite countour palette. the colors are creamy and blend well together, but you need to go in with a light hand and build it up otherwise you'll look streaky!! use a flat stippling brush to help blend.
Britt from WV
Absolute love this contour palette and have been using it for years. :)
Great for beginners
Idontknow from Los Angeles
It's really easy to blend and it has a great variety of shades. This was my first contour palette and it really worked well. I got to figure out which shades I like the best and the highlighter on this pallets is one of my favs. I recommend this for sure.
I would buy again.

Laura from Spokane, wa

Ok contouring palette
Lisa from Pittsburgh
I have had smashbox and revolution contour palettes before and they were both better then this one it's not very pigmented
Polly from Michigan
Looked like dirt on my face
Tammy from Maryland
First time buying this product. I tried to apply and it does not go on easily. It is hard to use. I feel like I should have tried a liquid instead of these powders. It definitely gave me a caked on look and brought out every wrinkle in my face (that I didn't even know I had). I probably won't use it again and it's a bit pricey for a one time use :-/
Kat G from Kansas
gets the job done but the highlight shades for under the eye?? nonono it be enhancing wrinkles and lines I have never seen before. I ran out of the vanilla shade in the abh palette, which is why I bought this palette. Wish abh would sell it individually 😔
Shevy from Michigan
Great contour kit for all shades and reasonable price!
My go to Palette
mrzalicia from Las Vegas
This palette I didn't like to much at first but I started to play with I th more and now in comparison to others I use, I seem to come back to this one.....NYX has some good stuff, I will continue to repurchase.
Kramer314 from Springfield mo
The colors aren't very pigmented so it takes a bit to get enough color and doesn't blend the smoothest. The contour colors were a bit warm for my best. I prefer ashier contours but over all it's not terrible for the price, probably wouldn't by again though.
