I've been hunting for a good cream contour for about a year now.
Yes, seriously a year.
I wanted a cream contour palette to use on others(in case you didn't know I do makeup, see here for my list of services:D)
Because I wanted to use this palette on others, I was extremely picky about formulas, colors, textures, pigmentation....
After trying a little over 4-5 different brands, I finally decided to order the BH contour palette online and I am so impressed! here's why.
BH has great prices, I only paid $14! Which is waaaaaaayyyyy below the price range of other palettes.
variety of shades
As you know not everyone has the same skin color, so as an artist to have 10 shades in one palette is really exciting! Other brands I tried in the past had separate palettes for lighter, medium, and richer skin tones, although I am not opposed to this system (especially for individuals to use) it can become very expensive for makeup artist! Also having a wide variety of colors allows me to create more natural or glam looks.
texture and formula
The formula doesn't feel oily or chalky, it's kinda right in the middle. It doesn't feel whipped either...it's almost like a gel.
I Personally LOVE when a contour palette is extremely creamy, so I add a drop or two of argan oil on my contour brushes.... it makes everything blend easily and look absolutely flawless!
For only $14 the pigmentation of the darker shades is outstanding, but I do feel the need to go over it 2-3 times just to give it an extra boost of color. The lighter shades work well, but I still use extra concealer underneath.
On my fair skin tone, I can't exactly tell how long the highlight shades last, but the darker shades last over 12 hours! Which is outstanding especially for a $14 product!
If you want a smooth and rich contour palette, this product is for you!
Not to mention it's extremely affordable.
Hey it even landed a spot in my May Monthly Favorites, so it has to be good :)
Thank you so very much for reading I hope you have a fantastic day!
