Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette ($165.00 for 0.79 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one contour powder. My favorite products are the highlighter and contour powders, which will come as no surprise, as I have reviewed them favorably in the past as standalones. You actually get more of each product in the palette than in the individual compact, but for $65 you could purchase the Contour Book Volume II, which also contains 0.17 oz. worth of the Celestial Powder and 0.14 oz. of the Sculpting Powder (plus other standout product sin the brand’s line, like a small version of Starlight and larger sizes of the cream versions of the highlight/contour found in this palette). I don’t think the eyeshadows are worth the additional expense; the shades themselves are dupable, but the formula feels dusty, dry, and sometimes powdery and other times stiffer. They blended out better than I expected, and they lasted seven to eight hours (so not too shabby), but they were more semi-sheer to semi-opaque and prone to sheering out when applied.
