Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Review + Swatches

Evening beautiful people! I haven't blogged in so long and i finally sat down today and took a few pictures. I have missed it a lot, and i'm hoping to get back into the groove of things.

So, today's post is going to be about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, which i have been LOVING! Some of you may have noticed that i have been using it in my tutorials, and wanted to let you know my thoughts.

I love contouring, whether it's a subtle contour or full on Kim K, and this has to be one of my favourite contour products. It houses all the shades i need for contouring and highlighting, making it super easy to get ready when i'm in a rush!

I ordered six of the shades individually, because i wasn't going to use some of the shades in the pre-filled palette. The palette comes free when you order six of the refills and you still only pay $40. Not bad huh?

The six shades that i chose were:
  • Banana
  • Champagne
  • Peaches & Cream
  • Nutmeg
  • Havana
  • Espresso

These colours are perfect for medium to dark skin tone. I only have one shimmery highlighter in the palette, which is champagne and the rest are matte. The contouring shades aren't muddy, and allow you to create a natural contour or something very dramatic, mimicking the natural shadows of your face.

Longevity of this is incredible! It lasted about 10 hours or so without any fading. They don't feel chalky, or powdery and apply very smoothly onto the face. The palette is extremely sturdy, and is excellent for makeup artists. I am so impressed with this palette, and it is one that i would recommend to those who love to contour! 

The contour refills are $14 each, or $40 for a palette, and can be purchased HERE.

Have you tried the ABH Contour Kit?

  1. Oh my goodness! These look so gorgeous! I have been seeing this pallet all over YouTube but didn't know the first thing about it. Thanks so much for doing this review. :) I might actually fork over $40 now haha

  2. Thanks for the review! How do you think the original palette would fare on a NC42? I want a subtle contour and usually use MAC's Harmony blush. I really don't know how to pick the custom colours!
