You know that when it comes to contour, I always prefer a more subtle and delicate look.
Having fair skin, it’s often a little difficult to find contouring or bronzing shades that work well with my skin. The new It Cosmetics You Sculpted Universal Contouring Palette has a few shades that work great for me. This palette comes with four contour shades and two highlight shades- a matte and radiance.
“Developed with plastic surgeons, the leading experts in contouring and aesthetics, each powder shade is formulated with proprietary Perfect Lighting™ Technology to mimic real facial contouring and provide a foolproof alternative to fillers. While the four contour shades absorb light and minimize the areas to which you apply them, the two highlighters enhance features you want to pull forward, creating the appearance of more volume. Talc-free, and perfect for all skin types and skin tones, these shades are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk and peptides to blend effortlessly and deliver smooth, natural-looking coverage that lasts all day.“
What I like:
-this palette is so nice for a natural contour. I love the Soft Contour shade- it works so well with my skin tone
-the palette has a matte highlight shade which I love
-the packaging has a mirror which makes this travel-friendly (although I wish the mirror was slightly bigger)
-the powders are creamy, not chalky and actually pretty long-lasting
-the powders are buildable (won’t look muddy when layered)
-this palette comes with a little booklet and instructions on how to contour your face, nose, chest, etc.
-the highlight shade is very pretty not overly glittery or chunky (definitely not a very intense highlight, but I love it)
What I don’t like:
– I know that this palette is supposed to be universal, but I’m not sure how some of these shades would work with deeper skin tones
-Okay so I personally don’t necessarily have a problem with the packaging, but I have a feeling that some of you might not like the fact that this $40.00 palette comes in a cardboard packaging. I think it’s actually more environmentally friendly than plastic packaging and it’s definitely sturdy.

If you love natural-looking contour/highlight I’m sure that you’ll love this palette. The powders are quite easy to work with and blend very nicely. If you like your contour on a more intense side, you can still build these up, but they’re definitely more on a natural side.
