First off I just wana say Happy Paddy’s Day. I’ll be all over snapchat (magpiemagpieirl) and instagram (Magpie_ _Magpie) I’m sure so pop over and say hi, but for now, back to the post. 🙂
We all need a bit of contouring in our lives! I need it in bucket loads, no cheekbones ye see. So I Love me a good contour palette. I love it even more when it’s a good price. Collection has really stepped their game up over the past year and yet the price has remained cheap as chips. This palette comes in under £5.
I always like it when products are coupled together. Bronzer and highlight in one sleek neat kit, winner winner chicken dinner.
Let’s talk the bronzer, it’s a lovely mid tone bronze, not too cool not too worm and its matte, I do love me a shimmer bronzer but you can’t go wrong with a good matte as it means it suits a wide range of skin tones. The pigmentation is very good, very buildable and it blends beautifully.
Now for the highlight. I have to say I was rather impressed with this, it’s very finally milled so doesn’t have huge chunks of glitter so it give a beautiful soft glow to the skin. Lovely and subtle, and again suits a wide range of skin tones. Personally I favour a powder highlight as I find I can be very heavy handed with a cream, meaning I smudge me foundation when applying it. I’m always in a rush so the less hassle a product it the happier I am with it!
All in all it’s a great little palette, really easy to use and a great choice if you are a new comer to the contouring and highlighting game. The only negative I have is the tiny useless mirror provide, like really, what was the point.
Till next time.
