La Beauté: Aesthetica Cream Contour Kit Review

Le Fab Chic Contour Kit

If you follow makeup trends, you know contouring is BIG right now. From powders to creams, it can be hard to choose which tools to use to sculpt your face. I use lighter and darker concealers as my contour weapons of choice. The Aesthetica Cream Contour Kit caught my eye so i decided to try this all in one palette.

The palette is vegan, cruelty free, talc free, paraben free, gluten free and hypo allergenic. Three highlighting creams (Heiress, Chandelier & Wanderlust) and three contouring creams (Honey Love, Summer Nights & Chic Parisian) come in a travel friendly mirrored palette along with an instructional guide. The pans are removable, so you can easily pop them out and put them into your favorite magnetic palette.

As a woman of color, I was concerned that the shades in this palette may not work for me. The colors are highly pigmented and apply smoothly to the skin. The Highlight colors were a bit too white based for my skin tone. I use “Honey Love” as my highlight color and “Chic Parisian” as my contour color. “Summer Nights” is close to my skin tone so i use that to brighten up my under eye area. I like this palette for a more natural highlight and contour because the cream blends so easily. but is also build-able. I give this palette a 4/5 rating because it is great however the highlighting colors were too bright for my skin tone.

To apply this product i used this amazing 10pc Brush Set from amazon that costs less that $10! These Kabuki brushes are soft, blend well, made of synthetic material and (best of all) inexpensive. They come in a variety of colors and are a great addition to anyone’s makeup bag (even my professional makeup artist friend’s love them). It’s less than a dollar a piece for each brush, so grab yourself a set.

I am looking forward to posting more beauty reviews soon!

**These products were purchased by me with my own money. The contour kit was offered to me at a discount for my honest opinion.**
