Before the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit appeared, the bloggers added it to the list of must-haves. But is it really necessary for an ordinary user? You will learn this from the review for the palette.
For several months now, the Contour Kit – Anastasia Beverly Hills palette for contouring the face has been flashing on the Internet, where bloggers use it to the holes in educational tutorials and “die” with admiration. Let’s look at it from the other side.
Description Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit
The material from which the Contour Kit palette is made is cardboard. I have nothing against it, but the design does not reach the level of Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Perhaps the brand does not consider it necessary to waste time with the packaging and does not spend additional funds on it, so that later we do not have to overpay for the gilding and the letters “Anastasia Beverly Hills” engraved on it. Let’s admit it was so.
The advantage of the palette is refills. You can transfer them to your work palette. They are easy to pull out, as there are special holes. Therefore, the chances of damaging the refill are minimized.
The top row is for highlighting certain areas of the face, and the bottom row is for darkening them.
Description of shades and swatch
The top row is designed to “highlight” the skin.
Vanila is a matte shade with a pink tint that acts as a highlighter. The absence of mother-of-pearl makes it possible to use Vanila on problem skin, as it will not accentuate skin imperfections.
Banana is a matte shade with a yellow undertone that will suit warm skin tones.
Sand is a pearlescent shade with a slight rosy tint that will add radiance to the skin.
All three shades can be mixed with each other to create unique colors.
For the highlighter show, I chose the pearlescent Sand shade.
Bottom row – 3 shades to darken certain areas of the face.
Java is a warm brown shade without overt reddishness.
Fawn is a cool brown shade suitable for fair skin.
Havanna is a warm color with a reddish undertone that will replace any matte bronzer.
Close-up swatches will help you see each of these shades.
I decided to show you on the face the shade that will suit most of us – Fawn.
And finally, a “general” photo of the palette, where I managed to reproduce the colors most accurately.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit palette contains the most popular shades for sculpting not one face, but several faces at once with different skin tones.
There is absolutely no need for so many colors if you plan to paint only yourself. Believe me, in the end you will use 1-2 shades, no more.
Price: £ 39
Conclusion: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit can be the workhorse of a makeup artist. We always need a few colors to match the sculptor’s tint. But for an amateur, this palette is useless, if he is not a blogger and a makeup fan who has the skills of a make-up artist in order to use it to the maximum.
