Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Kit- Light to Medium Review

That’s a mouthful to say, isn’t it… Today I’m publishing the third most requested post (1st and 2nd being “How do I take photos for my blog/Instagram” & “How do I order makeup from Sri Lanka” respectively)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour kit comes in 3 variations:

1. Light to Medium

2. Medium to Tan

3. Tan to Deep

Each palette retails at: US$ 40.00 at Sephora & anastasiabeverlyhills.com

I got my palette from: beautybay.com for US$ 51.40 (Now here I’m answering your 2nd frequently asked question: I get most of my high-end makeup from beautybay.com They deliver worldwide for free if your order is above US$ 24.00 If your order is less, there will be a small delivery charge. If you’re a beauty addict like me, they also have the new ABH Limited Edition Eyeshadow palette too.)

My palette is Light to Medium. And it has the following colours:

Vanilla: Is a soft champagne-nude colour with warm undertones that you can use to set your concealers under the eye area.

Banana: Is an extremely finely milled soft pale yellow (imagine the palest of yellow) that can be used to brighten the under eye area. This colour is so smooth that it easily blurs the fine lines under eyes.

Sand: Is a shimmery beige highlighter powder (very finely milled) that is used to highlight the high points of your face for that extra glowing, dewy finish.

Java: Is a medium brown with red undertones that would look flattering on cool skin tones.

Fawn: Is the best contour shade in this palette (in my opinion) as it is a toffee brown shade with cool undertones. Perfect for contouring your nose, jawline and cheekbones.

Havana: Is a very warm brown that can be used as a matte bronzer all over the face with a very light hand.

Overall pigmentation: of all colours were excellent. You need to be careful with the 2nd row powders because they can come off too strong. Use a light hand especially when you apply Java or Havana.

Is it worth the hype? Yes. I haven’t used many powder contour palettes yet, but I can tell you this one is a keeper. I would definitely repurchase this because I use it everyday for a very soft and natural contoured look.

Do I recommend this? Yes. Make sure you buy the correct variation that fits your skin tone. I know many of you like the Light to Medium palette, but I tried this on one of my friends who has a very tanned skin, and the top row powders (Vanilla, Banana and Sand) looked too light for her.

  1. Hi there, thanks for the review and valuable hints. But always ppl struggle when selecting the right colour plate (including myself). So how you recommend to find the right colour? What is good to wear for long hours, is it powder or cream base contour kit? Seek life saving answers. Xoxo

    1. Hi I would say first of all see what colour your skin is.. My face is NC30 but my body is usually fairer than that so I always go for light/medium range. I have tried both cream and powder contour from ABH, cream contour lasts better, but if you want your makeup to last longer, you have to always set it with powder. If you want the cream contour kit, I recommend you to set it with either their powder contour kit or at least with some translucent powder 😊 hope this answers your question 😉 have a nice day! 💕💕
