REVIEW | Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Light

Today I’m going to review the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Fair A while ago I placed a huge order on Beauty Bay, buying 3 (!) ABH palettes at the same time. You can check that haul out here. I’ve only tried ABH brow products, but I heard so many great things about her palettes, that I had to try them out. After using these palettes for a while, I’m going to share my honest opinion about them in 3 separate reviews. In this first review I will be talking about the ABH Cream Contour Kit in Fair , one of her most iconic products! ABH claims that this is a best-selling set of three highlight and three contour shades in one must-have kit. Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit to sculpt, define, and enhance bone structure and features. Let’s see how it works!

PACKAGING

Let’s start off with the packaging, as always. I think ABH packaging is very nice and sleek. I love the look of black and white/minimal make-up packaging and ABH definitely nailed that. There’s quite some distance between the different pans, which is really nice: this way the cream products don’t blend together very easily and the packaging stays pretty clean too. I would prefer seeing a mirror tho, but oh well!

SWATCHES

Time for swatches. First of all, how pigmented are these colors?! I’m especially impressed by the lighter shades. Even for a fair complexion like mine they’re light enough. The palette comes with six shades:

  • Soft Light – Pure sand. This shade is great for highlighting.
  • Lustre – Sheer porcelain. This shade is perfect for strobing.
  • Fair – Pale peach. A good concealer shade.
  • Fawn – Café latte. Ideal for contouring.
  • Shadow – Caramel latte. Designed for shading.
  • Mink – Toasted almond. Provides the ultimate shading and definition.

Although these products are creams, they are not too liquid-y. They are still longwearing and work great on oily faces as well. Don’t take me wrong: they definitely don’t have a powdery finish, like some cream-to-powder products have, which I don’t like. They’re just a bit of a more dry feeling cream, which makes it very natural looking on the skin. This palette has definitely a lot of different undertones. This makes it a bit more difficult to use all shades, but it does make it a more versatile palette to use, especially when you’re getting a tan or something (or you want to contour your friends, haha!).

CONTOUR

I use the ABH Cream Contour Kit to contour my cheekbones and my nose. Personally, I feel like contouring creams look way more natural on the skin than powders. I also find them way easier to work with. I always use the Mink shade to contour my face, because it’s the ashiest color of them all. I really like how it works and it’s definitely my favorite product to contour my face!

HIGHLIGHT

Although I find cream contouring very easy to do, cream highlighting is a different story. I feel like it can look unnatural very quickly. I like to use the highlight creams a a thin base underneath my powder highlight. They are very pigmented, but can look a bit cakey on the skin. I like to use it with a small stippling brush or my fingers to apply it. Use them with caution I would say! I do think they can add that extra oompfh to your highlight game, you just have to work with it the proper way! Here I used a combination of Soft Light and Lustre on top.

YAY OR NAY?

This product is definitely a yay for me. I love the concept of a cream contour kit (it looks sooo pretty in your make-up stash!) and I’m so glad I finally got my hands on one. I do love the contour shades way more than the highlighters, just because they are a bit harder to get used to. The shades are all very pigmented and long lasting and perfect on their own, or as a base for powder products. I would definitely recommend this to any contour/make-up junkie out there, for sure! I got this Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Fair one for €45.30 at Beauty Bay if you’re wondering.

    Hey Lilia!
    My name is Femke and first of all, I wanna say that I really like your blogs about fashion, travel, lifestyle, beauty… so ALL your blogs! 😉 Also this blog is very nice. I love the palette, it looks lovely and I really want to try it! The colours look beautiful and I think that they are also very pigmented. I’m very jealous, I also want that palette because I have heard such good things about it. I do have a couple of contour products but none have really captured my interest, but this has! As I said, you’re a very good blogger. You’re photos are also of very good and they have a bright quality. I’ve seen a lot of blogs about fashion but I think yours is my favourite! Continue to make these blogs because I think you can inspire a lot of people! I look forward to all of the following blogs! 😉
    Good luck!
