Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of the most coveted brands on the market. After taking the beauty world by storm with innovative brow products, which arguably started a trend, Anastasia preceded to release a series of amazing lipsticks and palettes. Among these palettes are their contour kits; perhaps most notably, their cream contour kits. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit is unique in the contouring palette world, which is dominated by powder products.
I love cream contouring products, and the Anastasia Beverly Hills palette didn’t disappoint. Even though $40 is expensive, the palette contains six shades, and the product is plentiful so you get your money’s worth. The downside of having lots of shades is that it might be more than you need for a day-to-day look. The upside is that if you want to really customize your contour, you definitely can.
I have the lightest palette, in the shade Fair. I swatched the six different shades in the palette below.
I frequently contour with Fawn and Shadow, and use all of the highlight shades. Soft Light and Fair can be used as a concealer, or to highlight the brow bone. I love the shade Lustre, which is a shimmery highlight that can be used alone for a soft glow or applied under a powder for an on-trend blinding highlight.
The formula of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour is thick, but buildable. I like to apply Fawn to my face with a small brush, then blend it out with a buffing brush. It creates a beautiful and natural finish. If I use the shade Mink, I can create a dramatic, chiseled look. As an added bonus, the packaging is both sturdy and esthetically pleasing.
