Kevyn Aucoin is launching their NEW The Contour Book: The Art Of Sculpting & Defining Volume III today, 7.27! This cute little contour book includes two beautiful Highlighters in shades Beam & Flash, three Sculpting Powders in shades Light, Medium, & Deep and finally The Neo Bronzer in the shade Venice for a radiant sun kissed bronzed look. This beauty is available at Sephora for $59.
Y’all know we’re HUGE fans of multi-use palettes just like this one! Face palettes are usually a better value, too, since you get a bunch of products all in one. However, we aren’t so sure this one is totally worth the purchase – first of all, is it just me or do those highlighters look wayyyyy too similar?? Sure, you can tell a slight difference in the pan and a bit of a variance in undertone in the swatch but on the face, these are likely to look literally identical. I’m not sure the reason for this considering there are so many routes you can go when it comes to highlighters? The bronzers seem to have a nice range of undertones from that ashy gray to a warmer bronze but I’m not sure how many people will be able to get use out of all 3 of these shades. Sometimes I think these types of palettes are more geared toward makeup artists than the average consumer. The Neo Bronzer is definitely a very unique component of this palette – the gradient effect gives you the option to use either portion as a highlight, shimmery blush or radiant bronzer! Or, you can mix them all together for a custom shade that will give off that true sun-kissed glow that’s certainly bronzer but also a little pinky. I see this as being the most appealing component of this palette but it may not be worth to purchase the entire thing for $60 when your eye is only on one part.
