Anastasia Beverly Hills, one of beauty’s most renowned brands, and for good reason. As a makeup lover and appreciator I have owned many of their products from the brow wiz to the cream contour pallet. As someone who’s more on the paler side I have found it quite a challenge to find a contour pallet that will give me a natural cut but yet still give me a bronze glow, and as far as setting powders go I’ve only ever own ones that mattify my skin for 5 minutes before they melt off my face! After reading some reviews on BeautyBay I was convinced that this pallet was going to be one like no other…
This pallet comes with a selection of 6 powders, 3 being bronzers and 3 being matt highlighting powders. At first glance I had a good feeling about this pallet as both powders seemed light enough that they would brighten my under eye as well as including a the banana powder, and two out of the three bronzers having a more of a grey undertone.
When starting my makeup I used my usual Urban Decay Naked Concealer on top of the Benefit Porefessional primer. To set my under eye I used a mixture of the first shade in the pallet and the banana powder. I found this to be the perfect combo as not only did it brighten my under eye area (something that I usually struggle with) but it left my skin looking smooth with no creases in sight! When it came to contouring I used my beloved Benefit Hoola Bronzer contour stick on my forehead, check bones and jawline. Going over these areas with the ABH pallet I once again opted for a combination of the first two bronzing shades. However, I had mixed feelings on this combination as across my forehead I had a bronze glow but thought this may be too harsh to wear on the daily on my cheekbones. When using this pallet on a later date I decided to use the lightest shade on its own for my cheekbones and found that this worked much better and left me with “naturally” chiselled cheeks bones!
Over all I must say that this is by far the best contour pallet I have used to date as not only do you get 6 reasonably sized pans but the shades are perfect for lighter skin tones (I got the lightest one available). Anastasias formal for these powders are another level; they have a silk consistency that reflects on the skin, leaving you looking matt and concealed all day!
