I can’t tell you how excited I was when the new Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palettes were sent to me.

I know not too long ago, I said I wasn’t that skilled in the cream contour game, but I’m in love with the creaminess of this product – it’s a game changer!

Light (20)

Each palette comes with a highlight, contour, shimmer, and blush shade — all are creamy, blendable and buildable.

The Light palette was a little too light for me (although I could get away with it if I really wanted to), but I loved that the contour shade was really cool-toned.

The shimmer and blush shades were the same as the medium palette (see below) and I found that the shimmer shade had such a beautiful finish that wasn’t overpowering at all.  I would totally rock this during the day and amp it up with a powder highlighter on top for the night.  The cream blush was pigmented, but again, not overpowering at all.  The natural coral shade complimented my skin tone perfectly and I can wear it all year round.

Medium (30)

The medium shade was definitely more suited for me, and after it was on, it created a natural contoured effect where I could still see the definition, even after I blended it in.  So different from my last cream contouring experience!

Without any problems, I used a synthetic brush to apply and blend the product, but if you have a damp makeup sponge, that’s even better.  I found that using the damp makeup sponge blended the product without dispersing it too much and making it disappear into my foundation.

Here’s a little tip: before you powder your foundation and concealer, use these contour kits to make blending much easier.

For reference, here’s the comparison between both palettes.

The palette also comes with detailed contouring instructions to help you contour like a pro.  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it when brands include leaflets like these…I just find it so interesting learning how to enhance each face shape.

My face is more rounded, so according to MUFE’s instructions, I’ve been contouring as an oval face shape, not round.  Fascinating!

If you’ve been wanting to give cream contouring a try, I can’t recommend these enough!  These changed my opinion of cream contours and I can’t wait to incorporate it more into my makeup routine.

The Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette is available in 4 shades (Light, Medium, Tan, and Dark) for $45 in March 2016 at Sephora and Make Up For Ever.
