Blogtober Day #16 Too Faced Contour Palette Review


I wanted to get this review up as soon as possible for you as I have been having a real love affair with Too Faced recently and so I wanted to add this into the mix too. There are a lot of contour kits that are out now and it can be quite overwhelming, which is why I created my top faves from the drugstore which you can see here. But if you fancy treating yourself then I would highly recommend the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Kit
So let's take a closer look at what we have in this kit...

Too Faced have become well known for the chocolate scented makeup and this is definitely a fantastic addition to their range.  Along with other contour kits, the idea is to enhance your natural features but also correct some of those blemishes we may have. This kit has everything in one, including the Contour Buki Brush along with 4 powders - two matte contour shades, one matte highlight powder and one shimmery highlight shade.
With all the contour kits that are coming out, there are an abundance of brushes to go along with your kit and give you the best sculpted out cheekbones. I love the Contour Buki Brush because first off it's and a great size for traveling, but it is slightly angled and not so dense so it doesn't pack on the powders all in ne go, it gives you the option to add a light layer of powder and you can then build it up. I do like to use the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush and the Bold Metals Contour Brush but these are the more dense brushes and so I can be quite heavy handed with these. But anyway, onto the rest of the kit...

The contour powders, Medium Cocoa and Dark Cocoa are universal shades so you can mix them to create the perfect tone for your skin but the Medium Cocoa is the right mixture of cool and warm tones so my contour never looks flat or muddy. They're so soft and buttery that they are easy to blend and create a natural or a strong contour.
The matte highlight shade - Light Cocoa - is a great setting powder for your face and even under your eyes, although I have to use a light layer so it doesn't look too cakey or dry, but it can also be added into the mix to create a lighter toned contour shade.
Although the Pop of Light  powder which is the shimmery highlight, looks very pretty in the pan, when it goes onto the skin there are pretty large chunks of glitter which unfortunately you can't just flick off with your brush. It would be great if you were going out and wanting a super shimmery intense highlight but as an everyday kind of thing, it's not my jam.
So this is how the powders look on my pale skin. I am the lightest shade Chantilly in the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and I am C1 in the L'Oreal True Match, so just incase you want a shade guide. I have super fair skin and the medium powder is a perfect contour powder.
I love this kit, the only thing that is a bit of a pain is availability in the UK but on their website it says it's £28 which means the powders are only £7 each which is an incredible value for money as something like the Maybelline Master Sculpts are £6.99 which I think is just great. Plus you get a free brush.
