Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit | Review

Hello, hello, hello! I am back with another review, this time on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ contour kit/palette. I was honestly really excited about getting this beauty right here because I did notice a lot of people going cray-cray over it for the past couple months and for the longest time, I tried to avoid getting it because I was “happy” with my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzing powder but I finally gave in and decided to join the bandwagon to see what this whole hype was about. Embarrassed emoji.

On Anastasia Beverly Hills website, they describe this product as “the premier contour and highlighting palette for professional makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts alike. Features 6 perfectly crafted highlighting and contouring shades for sculpting and defining your features.” (x)

This contour kit is available in three different shades: Light to Medium, Medium to Tan, and Tan to Deep and it retails for $40 USD.

I purchased the Light to Medium palette and this one contains six highlighting and bronzing shades – 3 of each. Vanilla, Banana and Sand are the highlighting shades whilst Java, Fawn and Havana are your contouring/bronzing shades.

The first thing I have to say about this product is that it is very pigmented but at the same time, you can build up your way with it. Does that make sense? In other words, there’s enough pigmentation to get a natural, glowy look but if you want a more intense look, just build it up and you will be good to go! Another thing I really liked about this palette is that it will not matter much if I get tan during the summer because I will have darker shades to work with or viceversa, if I don’t leave my room during the winter and turn into a ghost, I will also have lighter shades to work with. It’s a win-win situation!

Right now I’m using the middle highlighting shade (Banana) and the middle contouring shade (Fawn) to sculpt my face and I am obsessed. This is making me want to do my makeup now even though I don’t have any plans for today. I use the highlighting shade – banana- to set my under eye concealer and highlight it at the same time! It’s perfect and it won’t crease, and I use the contour shade – fawn- to sculpt my cheek bones and look like a bad bi$$$hhh.

Overall, I do enjoy this palette and I do think it is worth the price. Do I think it is necessary to have this palette in your makeup collection? Not really, specially if you’re on a budget. You can get away with contouring by using dark foundation/powder and highlighting with eyeshadow. But if you want to get it, definitely go for it!

      Oh my gosh, they elevated the price so much. ): I’m thinking of doing a giveaway that includes this product and a few other favorites when I reach a certain amount of followers, so if I do end up doing it, maybe you’ll win! Definitely worth the splurge but the price is ridiculous. ):

    I want her banana powder but it’s never on her website as a single! I keep hearing it’s amazing for setting the undereyes. But I know I won’t get enough use from the whole palette to justify purchasing it just for that one powder. Ugh, the dilemma.

      I believe her Banana powder is one of the most popular shades, so I guess maybe that’s why it’s usually sold out. ): Have you tried checking on Amazon, maybe? I really wouldn’t recommend buying the whole thing if you’re only heart eyes over miss Banana. Crossing my fingers for you and hoping you can get your hands on it soon! ❤

    I don’t know if they sell it here where I live but even if they did it would be 2 times more expensive. Lol and I don’t have that much money to spend.. 40$ is already kinda alot..

      Hi, love! Thank you for taking some of your time to read my review. I agree with you on the price – it is quite a lot of cash you have to throw out there to get it but I definitely think you get what you pay for! Definitely worth the price. I’m thinking of doing a giveaway once I reach 1000 followers, so definitely stay tuned for when that happens! Hope you’re having a good day. ❤
