Rated 4.69 out of 5 stars
I am in my early 40s with combo that leans more dry, pale olive skin. I use retinol and sunblock religiously and have a strong skin care routine. My big issues are makeup settling and creasing in fine wrinkles and undereye discoloring. I've struggled to find creamy makeup colors that set well and make me look glowy fresh and are easy to work with. I am not a fan of powder at this era of my life.
I love this palette because it allowed me to learn how to contour for my face and skin without looking scary in public. I've also used it beyond contouring—also as a light concealer/foundation as needed. I'ved use every one of the colors in the palette not just as a contour, but also dabbing on the lips to make pinks richer or more nude, smudging on the eyes for a sultry day time smokey look or using the lighter ones to clean up eyeliner mistakes. It has gotten me theough hangovers when my skin looks sick and ugly and it makes you look glowy & bright with a light hand and good blending. On my best days, it makes me look like one of the IG influencers with a filter but in real life. It has worked with every luxury makeup brand and drugstore and even Amazon Kim Kylie rip off makeup I've used. Will buy again once I've exhausted the palette.
I really REALLY wanted to love this. I was very excited to get this because of the reviews and that it was a more economical option than another highly rated pallet. It has nice packaging with a quality mirror insert that did make applying slightly easier. However, I attempted to use this every way I knew how to. With primer, without. With moisturizing, without. With the best setting spray I've found, and without. It had absolutely zero staying power. At a little goes a long way and it blends absolutely beautifully! I loved that, it was just so saddening that it would never stay. I pinky promise I tried everything I could do to love this simply because of how incredibly it applied and blended. But it had no staying power. It seemed like it just melted off my skin. Unfortunately I'll be returning. I hope my review helps!

I love this palette. I thought the creams we're going to be greasy but totally blend in so easily. Just a little goes a long way a the finish is beautiful. I love it for my freelance kit.
Stay away from any cosmetics that contain talc….

I typically don't buy palettes like these because I never can use all the colors. However, since this was my first creme palette of this type, I decided to try it, especially with it being half off. First off, the packaging is beautiful and high quality, with an awesome mirror. It seriously takes almost no product to see results, so this will definitely go a long way, even at the full price. It blends beautifully and looks fantastic. I did notice towards the end my cheek area had a bit of a sheen to it. That is where I put most of the product. For me it wasn't an issue, because it looked like a subtle highlighter that actually worked for transitioning from day to evening. There are a couple colors that are too dark for my skin tone, but I used those as sort of an eyeshadow, and that worked out great. Overall, I will use this and purchase this again.

I love the contour shades and they look great but I have no use for the concealer shade. It's great if you need both but I already have a concealer that I love. I did buy it during 21 days of beauty so I could try it and the cream is buildable and blends really well.

Great coverage and very easy to work with. A little goes a long way as well, love it!

I really wanted to love this pallette. I had it in my "saved for later" section for months and then it was a part of the 21 days of beauty so I snagged it up! unfortunately, I ended up returning it after giving it a few tries. I tried it with and without primer, by itself, and over foundation. while it is VERY creamy, it does not have staying power and is almost gone by the end of the day. It also makes my face SUPER shiny even after applying powder. It looks like I have rolled around in grease after a few hours and I have to powder again. My skin type is normal/dry for reference.

I'm happy with my purchase! Thank you Ulta!

This formulation I need either as a BYOP or as singles. The concealer specifically is amazing and brightens my face. I bought a second as a backup. Sometimes I use the darkest concealer shade as my foundation. The lightest contour shade I use as a contour- the other two darker shades I depotted. Definitely makes me want to look at more iconic complexion products!

I intially got my first palette in a beauty box. I didn't realize I needed it till I started using it. I had assumed all cream contours would pretty much be the same. NOPE, I was totally wrong. I ran out and bought a cheaper palette and it was awful. I have been waiting for this palette to go cheaper so I can buy a bunch. I hate paying regular price for anything. so I'm telling you this is the best cream contour palette that exsists. it's a silky smooth finish and the colors are perfect. you NEED this in your makeup kit!!!

To start off, I'm not a huge cream bronzer fan, but the formula of the bronzers in this palette is to die for. Even though it's a cream formula in a palette, the shades never seem to dry out in the pan and they maintain their creaminess and effortless blendability. There are two shades in this palette that I reach for on a daily basis for bronzer and contour. The only downside of this palette is that 4 of the shades are too light or too dark, so I can only use 2 of he 6.

I got this product in a boxy charm a while ago, and once I tried it, I could not stop using it. I love this product. The blendabilty, the lightweightness, nice coverage, buildable. BUT… I do have one problem with it. The shade range. I think my skin tone would be considered in the light medium range and the 4 colors on the left are colors I can work with. However, the lightest and darkest in the right are unusable for me, and I really tried. I so wish I could buy individuals of this palette. The only reason I will not be buying again is because I feel like I'm wasting product with those two shades.

Definitely a great cream contour/bronzing kit! If you like cream contour and bronzer, you'll love this! It's nice how it has different shades that can be used for different skin tones.

I have never been a fan of palettes as someone who loves and enjoys doing makeup. With one child I managed but with two it's just been harder to do makeup when I have to reach out for so many different products such as foundation, concealer, contour stick, etc. I love the coverage of these cream products I use all the shades except the dark one but it can be used as eyeshadow. I bought this with the smash box cali contour powder contour palette to set everything because I do have oily skin Omg they pair well I highly recommend.
Beth from Altoona, PA
I absolutely love this palette. Once you use this, you will never find another one that tops it! It literally goes on like butter, a little goes a long way, & beautifully blends. I saw a review that was not impressed with how long the product lasted or stayed on. I did not have that problem. LOVE!

II loved this works really well for me
Em from New Orleans, LA
So good! Very creamy, glides on like butter. A little goes a long way - I didn't realize this until I hit pan on the lightest shade within a week or 2 of purchasing. Lol all you need is a light tap with your brush or sponge and you're good to go. Don't make my mistake and use too much at a time, you don't need to! I'd also like to see this palette available in 2 or 3 different shade options because I don't use the two left shades. They just don't work for my skin tone, as I'm sure the lightest color doesn't work for other skin tones. Excellent palette though and I will be repurchasing. I also think they should make this palette refillable, like the KVD one!

I've been looking for a good cream contour as prefer the way they bend into the skin vs sitting on top. I really like the feel and blend ability of this kit. The two lighter browns both provide a soft touch of color that's great for a no/low makeup makeup look. The do seem to get a little muddy easily a little does go a long way, but your not going to get a bold contour it getting muddy. I understand that a pallate like this needs to have a little bit of something for everyone, but the dark seems like it will be to much on fairer skin, so for the price point you may not be able to use up all of the product. I also like the highlighting and concealing ability of the lighter colors. Seems to offer options for both cool and warm undertones and can be blended to get just the right mix.
Mae from Kansas
Absolutely love this palate. It blends so well, looks amazing and stays put too. It has excellent coverage as well. I'm fairly fair skinned, so the darkest contour is not usable for me at all. But otherwise, absolutely love and recommend!!
America from Tyler, Tx
I am so happy I got this cream contour palette. Not only does it blend flawlessly with the contour brush I got with spending a certain amount, it looks natural and not harsh. I'm in my 30's and powders just look cakey now. I highly recommend this.
I had been looking for a good cream contour for my skin. This one is great. The colors are perfect and it seems to stay put once applied.
CC from TX
I was looking for a contouring palette that could replace foundation. As I grow older certain consistencies do not work for me. This product is very creamy and very blend-able. I have pretty sensitive skin and have not had any reactions to it either. I'm pretty happy with this product.
Fiana from Miami, FL
I use a LOT of different types of contour products depending on the humidity and my skin's texture - I TRULY love this CONTOUR PALETTE because it is light, smooth, blendable and it seems, waterproof! I wore it when I went swimming and was SHOCKED to see that it had stayed put and still looked pretty awesome!
