So, I’ve been really into cream contouring latley, and I love the Smashbox contouring sticks for that. However, I wanted to try something else, so I got this palette from Makeup Revolution and so far I do like it, but I’m not too impressed.

Now, when I first tried this palette I have to admit that I didn’t get the best first impression of it.
Mostly because the contouring shades was either too light or too dark, and I also feel like most of the shades are more like bronzers on my skintone.
But I do feel like they are good as bronzers, and I don’t find that there’s a lot of patchyness when I use them, so I do like them for that, but it’s not what I expected.

Now, as far as the highlighter shades go, I do like them, except for the shimmery one. That shade is just too greasy looking for me, and I’d much rather use a powder highlight.
But, overall I can definetly get some use out of this palette, and I don’t think it’s bad for the price. But I don’t think it’s a palette that will blow you away. And I also think that it only works for light to light-medium skintones, so I wish that they’d have a few different palettes to suit all of us.

Please let me know if you’ve tried it, and what your thoughts are.

I got mine from Beatybay.com for 87nok.
