Cream Contour Kit: Packaging & Contents

So, here’s what you get when your package from Anastasia Beverly Hills arrives:

  • 3 contours;
  • 3 highlighters;
  • Sleek plastic package;
  • No mirror in the package.

This kit is pleasant to see, touch and use. The packaging itself does not feature a mirror, and its upper part is transparent. The package is designed in that minimalistic way, which became a business card of Anastasia Beverly Hills. The pans are located in a convenient way: 3 highlighters are in the upper row, and 3 darker shades are in the bottom. There is enough space between the pans, so the package stays clean when used, and different shades don’t get mixed there.

Colors are well-pigmented, which is especially important for light shades, as in the majority of contouring kits by the other brands lights fade out when you try blending them.

Contour Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills: Pros & Cons

This creamy contour kit features not too liquidy texture and you will have to put some effort to blend it. Colors feature excellent pigmentation, and once blended provide that realistic contouring effect. Makeups we did with the help of this kit wore well for 10+ hours on both oily and dry skin. Colors of Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour kit do not feature any powder finish and you can easily apply semi-opaque foundation over your contouring to gain that realistic effect. They feel a little drier, than cream, and this allows them to wear that long.

After AnastasiaBeverly Hills has launched their contouring kits, face contouring became a tendency in makeup. Literary every beauty blogger had a tutorial on contouring, or at least has expressed their opinion on certain contouring beauty products. Some of bloggers that reviewed Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring palettes have noted, that some of their medium shades are too warm, with somewhat orange undertone, which may not be suitable for all makeup types.

Before I actually bought this palette, T I thought that contouring was soemthing too complicated. I use this palette formy makeup routine and I must say, it takes me around 10-15 minutes to apply the product and blend it. It blends well with a flat synthetic brush. Then, I put my foundation and highlighter on, and I'm good to go!

I don't contour all my face, I normally do only my cheek bones. And I like this ABH contouring kit for ease of application and that easy blending. I don't use light colors a lot, though dark colors perform great on me.

This is my favorite contouring palette. It works way better than ABH powder contouring. It does not have that reddish undertone and loos so natural on me.
