Blush and Contour Palette from KkCentherHk

Before I forget, congratulations to Jane A. for winning my Perricone giveaway! Check your e-mail because I'll be e-mailing you soon.

Here's a blush and contour palette that I've been using for quite some time now. During the summertime is when I usually focus more on adding contours to my face or using contour colors as bronzers because I think I do get a little bit tan but not too much. So I like to enhance the so-called "tan" I would get by contouring.

I really like the shade of the contour color because it's not too brown or muddy and it's not too orange. It's a matte shade so it's great for using it as bronzer if you don't like that shiny look. Although some of the colors aren't very pigmented upon first swipe, I do prefer that in some way because it allows me to build the color and I don't have to worry about over applying.

The blush colors on the other hand, have pretty decent pigmentation. They are also buildable colors but I find that one layer of blush works good enough for me. I also really like the blush colors as well. Perfect for Summer!

The beige-tone and white powder I don't use very often. I would consider them for highlighting and for brightening certain areas of the face.

Overall, it's a pretty good palette. I think it's great for personal use but not so much professionally. It's good if you're starting out in makeup and you want a variety of colors to work with or if you're just getting into contouring.

This blush and contour palette is available at KkcenterHk.com for $15.54.
