Okay! Continuing my “Budget Shopping Carnival” I bought and contour and highlight palette by Kiss Beauty, Professional 3 in 1 Brightener, Concealer, and Highlighter.
I am honestly not a contour person, reason, I don’t know contouring, I can make and find contours on Maps only :P. Jokes apart, YouTube is nowadays flooded with all these highlighting and contouring videos, and these videos are pretty tempting. After watching like 5 -6 tutorial videos I was determined and high enough to learn contouring, for which I needed a contour. Next day I went to nearest shopping store, but disappointed to find no such palette available in my town (one of the side effects of marrying a defence officer, you go to remote places ..huh!). I started looking for product online and realized two things:
- These palettes are not easily available in my country, India.
- If they are, then they are expensive, and new practitioners like me cannot afford to burn hole in our pockets just for learning process. *sob sob*
Finally, I saw a product, and it’s ratings were good enough. Though I had never herd of the company before but a good rating and cheap price were win win for me and finally bought the product.
Rs.435/- for 8 shades, I bought it on sale for 325/- 🙂 (but box says 599/- fishy!)
New Kiss Beauty (I swear I never heard that name before) Highlight and Contour Concealer Palette (8 Shades), since the product is fulfilled by Amazon itself I received it within 4 working days.
Appearance is ok-ok, it comes in a low quality plastic box, you drop it once it’s gone. Palette smells good though.
Moving on to the texture and shades. There are 8 shades, but two of them look like other two, and when I swatched them on arm….ugh! I was highly disappointed. 4 Shades are almost alike, and that’s not the only problem with the palette. Minus those 4 shades, browns of the set have pinkish undertone, now that’s worse, it looks so funny after blending, as if I mixed my brown eyeshadow with pink blush and used it and contour. The texture too is not at flattering, these creamy colours are so difficult to blend. Wait! that’s not the end, I have visible line under my eyes, rather than concealing my lines, it makes them more visible, no matter how you blend it or how you settle it nothing helps. Further, this product dries your skin.
I have no idea how people have rated it so well. Coverage, let’s not talk about it.
No pro and con for this product.
For those who want to learn and play can buy this, for rest I wouldn’t recommend this product.
- Budget shopping is not always happy happy
- Don’t buy products just on the basis of online rating, research and talk to people and spend a little extra if you have to.
No rating for this one 🙂
