Sugar Cosmetics Contour De Force Palettes/Minis Review, Swatches + Giveaway
Sugar Cosmetics is back with yet another launch, this time they have launched face palettes. It’s called Contour De Force Palette and has a bronzer, blush and a highlighter.
Palette 01 is called Subtle Summit and Palette 02 is called Vivid Victory, each of the shades in these palettes are sold individually too as minis i.e. mini bronzer/mini blush and mini highlight. (Buy HERE)
The quantity is the same i.e. 4g in both, palettes cost Rs.799/- and minis cost Rs.299/-. So palettes are more economical, also more travel friendly.
They have a cardboard packaging and it’s not super sturdy but won’t bend or break that easily too. The palettes come with a mirror.
The palette 01 has Blush 01 Peach Pink, Bronzer 01 Taupe Topper and highlighter 01 Champagne Champion.
Peach pink is a soft, peachy pink blush, Taupe Topper is a cool toned bronzer with gray undertone and the highlighter Champagne Champion is a muted champagne gold.
The Taupe Topper bronzer is more of a contouring powder than a bronzer and works really well. I loved it. The blush is very muted and would need layering to show up, more suitable for fair skin tones. The highlight is also very subtle and muted, it gives a soft glow suitable for day time, but it’s not like one of those blinding highlights. I personally prefer a stronger highlight though.
The palette 02 has Blush 02 Pink Pinnacle, Bronzer 02 Woody Wonder and highlighter 02 Gold Glory.
Pink Pinnacle is a deep rose shade, Woody Wonder is a warm brown bronzer (this is more of a bronzer) and Gold Glory is a muted golden bronze.
The blush is very pretty and would work for all skin tones, bronzer is quite light and would only show up on fair skin tones and the highlight is again subtle and muted, would work for all especially deeper skin tones.
I feel they should have interchanged the bronzer in both the palettes and then palette 01 would be perfect for fair skin tones and 02 for deeper skin tones.
I like the bronzer 01, blush 02 and highlighters both, but 02 more. The texture is really smooth and the powders are very finely milled. These palettes are perfect for day time use and travel, both the highlighters are very subtle and muted, if that’s what you prefer in highlighters.
I do like and recommend the new Sugar Cosmetics face palette, the combination is again an off for me, just like I mentioned in the eye shadow quads HERE.
I am giving away the minis on my Youtube channel, the video embedded below, join 🙂
