I know I'm totally late to this party but I just got the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour palette with the Contour brush thanks to the generosity of The Makeup Show a few weeks ago. This was included in the press bag!
I knew the Kat Von D line was going to be there and this palette was at the top of my list of items to purchase so I was thrilled to see it in the goody bag!
I love that Kat designs all her products/packaging herself! She's such an amazing artist!
The palette consists of six powders. Three highlighting powders and three contour powders.
I already have several Kat Von D products and love them! Her line just always continues to impress me. You all know I already love her liquid lipsticks, powder foundation, and eye shadow palettes, so it's no surprise that this is another hit for me!
The powders are so pigmented. They apply creamy and smooth.
I was honestly so impressed upon my first application that the contour powder applied so evenly. I tend to have a problem with contour colors skipping on my cheeks and looking uneven since my cheek area tends to be a bit more on the dry side, but I didn't have this problem with her contour powders!! I got a nice clean contour which I was thrilled about!
I like the three shades included because you get a cooler tone contour, along with a warmer tone, and a nice deep shade which is great for darker skin tones.
I like to mix all three to contour my cheeks. When I contour my jaw I use just the first two shades.
The highlighting powders are matte shades. They are great for highlighting without all the shimmer, setting the under eye area, and cleaning up your contour. Again you get a cooler tone, and warmer tone, and a nice peachy shade.
This palette can also be used to fill in your brows or you can use them as shadows. It's really a great versatile palette that just keeps on giving.
Double ended contour and highlighting brush
The double ended contour brush works great paired with the palette. It picks up the perfect amount of product and you're able to blend everything in with soley this brush. I really love it! It's a must have with the palette.
If you're a pro MUA then you definitely need this in your kit!
I highly recommend you check this palette out at your nearest sephora or online at sephora.com .
