Although the design of this product is annoying and the highlight shades are useless this is by far the best contour product I have ever used.
The deep tan shade on the left is smooth and warm in color. It works as a bronzer on me.
For contour I use the cooler tone on the right hand side. This is what I use down the sides of my nose and as a sharp contrast under my cheek bones. If I feel the color is too grey I warm up my face with the bronzer.
The really dark color at the bottom is what I use for under my jawline. I don’t use this anywhere else it’s just way to dark. A little goes a long way with this shade. Tread lightly if you are med to tan. BTW for reference I am a deep tan, MAC NC 42.
Now back to those highlight shades. They are useless. They are super chalky, not smooth, and not pigmented. They get in the way of the contour shades but I work around them.
Sephora has marked this on sale, it looks as though it is now a discontinued product. I’ve stalked up on this palette. Sad to see it go but I hope it gets redesigned for us darker skin girls.
I was surprised to find out that many people wait for the Sephora beauty insider sale to save money on higher end products. The truth is they always have a coupon for you to use and save some money. The savings come through Ebates.
All you have to do is click on the ebates logo below, create an account with your email address and click on the Sephora icon then shop as usual. Every few months Ebates will mail a check or put money in your paypal account. This past year I received $278 back in the form of a check for using Ebates whenever I shop online. Plus you get a $10 gift card for free for signing up! I picked the Target one when I first signed up.
Seriously friends, it’s that easy. Don’t miss out on saving money if you are an online shopper like me. I need to buy an eye cream and if there is no Sephora sale I will definitely use my Ebates account for 8% back. Also, whenever Sephora has a Beauty Insider sale you can still use Ebates to save up to 19-24% in total. Usually they have 4% back during a sale period. It’s better than nothing.
Oh! And there are so many other beauty sites you can purchase from through Ebates. Right now Lancome is 10% back, Clinique is 4% back and Kiehl’s is 7.5% back.
Here is my secret, I will only make purchases when Sephora has the highest cash back promotion going on and that’s 8%. If I need to make a purchase and they only have 4% back I will wait a few days and check back.

The sale is from November 7-11. If you shop in stores you get a free tote bag (while supplies last), first access to new beauty, seasonal makeup looks at the Beauty Studio, and special holiday gift packaging.
I’m an online shopper. I spend hours and hours browsing every shelf on their site. I love it!! I’ll be restocking some skincare essentials like my Purity by Philosophy cleanser, Nars Sheer Matte foundation and a few other things. But I’m more excited about trying out some new things!
