Hello gorgeous readers! I was sent the Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book + The Art of Sculpting & Defining Volume II, and Contour Brush, both Sephora Exclusives. This sculpting/defining palette contains creams, shimmers and mattes -- three of which are eye shadows. Also, the palette has a built-in tutorial that opens as the first section of the palette, followed by the pigments, a high quality mirror, and, the shades are universally flattering on many skin tones. It's the perfect travel size companion filled with Kevyn Aucoin's legendary and alluring neutral shades that can sculpt, define and highlight day to evening looks. And shout out to PR for the gorgeous tote bag with an inspiring message! Stay Beautiful! XOXO

Opinion: Beginning with the actual palette, it's constructed of a durable faux red, animal skin print that opens up in two parts, with three sections; the first two pages include a step by step guide on how to apply the products, the second part holds a generous size mirror -- the width of the palette -- and the last section contains the pigments. All of the shadows are blendable, buildable and have decent wear time -- although, adding face primer will sustain the look. The cream pigments are super dewy and apply with ease! While the darkest cream looks dark in the kit, it's quite subtle and opaque on the skin -- perfect even for girls with vampire skin such as myself -- so do not be afraid to work with the colors because they seamlessly blend into skin. The two peachy/rose shades are shimmery, the white one is the highlighter and the other two are matte powders. Contour and sculpting products always give me a sense of trepidation because I feel they will appear clownish on my fair skin, however, Kevyn Aucoin pigments look natural on my skin and help highlight my features. I especially love using the products -- every single one -- on my eyes and around the orbital bone. If your looking for one palette this summer, this is the one to buy and the soft neutral colors will carry you into early autumn as the months go by.
