MY TAKE ON THEBALM HIGHLITE ‘N CON TOUR HIGHLIGHT AND CONTOUR PALETTE
Packaging: The palette comes in a characteristic ‘thebalm’ cardboard packaging with funky print on it. The palette includes two shimmer highlighters, two matte highlighters, two contour powders and a bronzer and blush. Also, i love the fact that the palette has a mirror inside which makes it easy to use on-the-go.
Texture: The compressed powders are fine without been too granulated and blend into the skin thoroughly, leaving behind a matte and well-diffused finish.
Shade: The shades in the palette do not have a name, but they do have a code each; here is a summary on them-
64Hz- This is a champagne highlighter with subtle shimmer that gives a nice glow to your cheeks and high points of the face.
125Hz- This too is a shimmery highlighter but with rose undertone.
250Hz- This is a pale-pink matte highlighter with no shimmer. Great for highlighting the brow bone. Suitable for very fair skin tones with pink undertones.
500Hz- This is a pale-yellow matte highlighter with no shimmer. Great for highlighting the brow bone. Suitable for fair-medium to dark skin tones with yellow undertones.
20dB- This is a warm toned bronzing powder/contour powder.
10dB- This is a deep brown contour powder.
0dB- This is a light-warm contour powder/bronzing powder.
3dB- This is a dusty-rose blush which looks really pretty on all skin tones! This blush is neutral and perfect to be used on regular basis irrespective of what you wear.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply use the bronzer powders to warm up your cheeks, matte highlighter to brighten up certain areas of the face and shimmery ones to add a glow. At the end, swirl the blush on your cheek bones with a fluffy blush brush and you are done!
This palette literally has everything you need for a proper contouring and that too for all skin tones! The powders blend into the skin amazingly and stay almost all day long without fading. I am happy with the fact that they have included various tones of bronzing powder which allows me to add a deep contour under my cheek bones and simply warm up rest of the areas using other lighter shades where I need only a slight color. Also, the blush is extremely beautiful and I love it! I also love the fact that the highlighters aren’t very blinding and you can go light handed for a subtle glow and layer it for a visible intense glow. The palette is easy to carry around and while you travel, you need not carry a lot of products like bronzer, blush, highlighter etc. if you have just this! Also, because the packaging is super cute, you would love to carry this with you. I am super glad I have this and I give this a big thumbs up.
