This palette comes with 3 different contour shades and 2 highlighter shades. You can always mix and match contour shades to create your perfect shade. All the shades are cream-based and blend like a dream. The colors look very natural on the skin and do not go patchy.

The kit contains two compartments – one for sculpting powder and one for the highlighter. The darker shade is completely matte and hence perfect for contouring around the cheekbones, nose and jawline. The highlight shade blends like a dream and has no chunky glitters or shimmers. The staying power of both the products in the palette is around 6-7 hours, which is great.
