Pale ladies, look no further, I found a contour palette at an affordable price that has dark colours and highlighting shades that won’t make you look orange or dead. The Beau Belle palette has been my go to since Christmas and I can honestly say, I don’t think any other powder contour kit that won’t break my bank could do a better job.
If you’ve ever seen one of my tutorials or videos or just my face in general, you’ll notice that I have rather fair skin, this is due to never really leaving my house, and as a ✴⋆pale⋆✴ girl, it’s pretty difficult to find a contour kit that will highlight and contour without looking as though I’m really bad at testing face shades, i.e an orange line under my cheek bones and stark white patches under my eyes. However, my hunt for the perfect pale palette has come to an end and I can finally rejoice at the success of finding this gem.
The palette has six colours, two highlighting, two rosy blushes and two shadow shades. I haven’t used the blushes yet because I’m obsessed with a sleek product for my cheeks right now, but I’ve used the others and I must say, for a drug store priced, I’m more than impressed and 100% satisfied. My favourites are the second lightest which is an almost cream colour, I’d even got as far as to compare it to a very light banana powder which is perfect for me, and the darkest to contour. Lengthening the list of why I’m so pleased with these powders, if I apply too much, they are very easy to blend and they last a good eight hours on their own.
These swatches are on the underside of my arm, the lightest part and as you can see, they are all still visible. The first three are from the top row, left to right. The fourth and the sixth are the ones I previously mentioned being my favourite and as you can see, they are strongly pigmented, this is just two finger strikes of the product so more than you need on your face. I’d say a single brush stroke is usually enough, maybe two or three depending on which brushes you are using. For such a low price, the circles holding the products are a good size as well, they’re about 7cm across which should last me a while, I’ve been using them almost daily since Christmas and I still haven’t hit pan.
The Beau Belle palette is definitely on the list of my must-haves throughout 2016 and if this year is anything like the product, I’m in for a pretty good time. I’m in love with it!
