I cannot put the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette down! I have been playing with it for several days, and as of now, this is my favorite contour palette.
Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette contains 3 shades of highlight colors and 3 shades of contour colors. This entire palette is matte, just the way I like my shade colors to be!
The very-pigmented shades are smooth and feel finely milled, with the lighter colors feeling even softer than the dark. They feel almost creamy – like butter, but are definitely powder.
They blend really well against my skin, and a single tap of my brush gives me enough color for each section of face I want to fix.
The colors do not show up muddy, which is fantastic. And every color fits me, even with my tan skin tone. So I can choose how light or dark and how soft or heavy I want my contour to be.
Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette comes with a paper tutorial (first photo above) that shows you how to define your face, cheeks and nose. Every face is different, but the tutorial is quick and basic for everyone.
I don’t have the Anastasia Contour Kit so I can’t compare it to that, but this is an absolutely fantastic palette well worth the $46 price tag. I think my next Kat Von D purchase is the Shade + Light Contour Face Brush to go along with my palette.
