Focallure 03 Blush Highlight Contour Palette | Review, Swatches

I never knew I would ever spend my money on a blush-highlight-contour palette. I always used my dark brown eyeshadow to contour and I already owned a highlighter and a blush for other purposes. But this palette persuaded me to spend. I don't regret this decision at all! So yes, read my detailed review to know more:

The packaging is really classy and looks like a high end product. The packaging of all the Focallure products is classy and really attractive. This one comes in a round palette with the three cakes divided like in the images. There's no brush given, which is a drawback. Also, there's a mirror attached. The palette comes in a black cardboard box.

All the three cakes are powdery, which is a truly bad aspect of this. There is no brush provided, so you'll have to use your own brushes. Overall, I'm not impressed with its application.

In their shade card, the colour was peach, but this is clearly a baby pink. I already own a hot pink blush so I wanted something in orange or a peach hue. Nevertheless, this pink is subtle. The cakes are less pigmented, so you'll have to apply more layers. The brown is great, perfect to contour. The highlight shade is a bit towards yellow, and I have no complaints regarding that. Overall, the palette does give you a defined look.

 After the foundation, I first apply the contour cake using a flat foundation brush on the areas I want to contour (hollows of my cheek, jawline, side of my forehead). Then with the same brush, I apply the highlighter on my cheekbones. Then I take the angular brush and apply highlighter under my eyebrows and my nose. I take the blush brush and apply blush on the apple of my cheeks and a little on the tip of my nose and chin. Lastly, I blend everything using my fingers.

 - Inexpensive
- Does the job properly

 - Dry, chalky cakes
- Not pigmented
- Not available everywhere

The palette is really inexpensive and does the job pretty nicely, so I think if you're looking for something inexpensive to try your makeup skills, then you should go ahead with this.
