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.
