Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour PaletteKat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette ($46.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes three highlight shades (0.08 oz. each) and three contour shades (0.16 oz. each). I wish the palette ran cooler in overall tone, or at least had the first set of highlight/contour be cool-toned, the middle be more neutral-cool, and the last set be deeper and more neutral-cool. They all run warmer both in the pan, swatched, and applied. The texture of the powders is incredibly silky and smooth with a little bit of powderiness, but it's not excessive, and it seems to make these incredibly easy to work with, so blending and diffusing the color on the skin isn't frustrating. If you are fairer and prefer very subtle contours, this palette might be too dark overall, but the shades are quite forgiving and blendable, so I think that they can all be worn across most skin tones, just depending on the intensity of application.

I have very fair skin and I love this palette! I use the first four shades to contour, highlight and bronze and I use the really dark colours as eyeshadow or to contour my nose! The shades are so pigmented and creamy and the most blend-able I have ever used! I have honestly never received so many compliments on my skin since I started using this!
