Drugstore Favourite: L'oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palettes

Contour palettes are still alive and well. I must say, I am getting a bit tired of them, but I have one more (well technically two) that are worth the purchase.

What surprised me about the L'oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palettes (£9.99 each) is that they're a cream to powder formula. Typically, I find cream to powders a little tricky to blend out, but these are really easy to work with. They're pigmented without being over pigmented, so you can build up the contour slowly.

I have both of the shades available but as usual, I prefer the shade for fair skin tones. It's more cool toned and therefore more realistic as a contour shade. I'm also not a fan of the highlighting shades in either palette. I don't find they look good on my skin, especially the one for fair skin tones. It's too stark and makes me look ashy as opposed to glowy.
Left- Light/Medium, Right- Medium/Dark
I prefer to apply this with some sort of synthetic brush like the Real Techniques Contour Brush because it blends out the cream seamlessly. You can get the most natural yet precise and sharp contour. I really recommend these contour kits, especially if you have oily skin. The cream to powder formula makes them long lasting. I wouldn't recommend them for darker skin tones though because the darker shade is just too warm toned and not dark enough. If you're looking for a contour palette for darker skin, I highly recommend the Barry M Contour Kit for Medium/Dark Skin Tones.

Apologies for the lack of swatches in this post, I can't believe I forgot to take them! I would have delayed the post but I already did that once due to the lack of internet. Anyway, the shades are very true to form in that they look the same on the skin as they do in the pan.

What's your favourite contour kit/palette?

Thanks for reading,
