A Review: KAB Cosmetics Contour Palette.

The following post contains affiliate links, which sends me a small percentage of any sales at no cost to you.

During the holidays, I caught some fun sales while shopping for gifts. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t pick up a few things for myself, of course!

One sale I stumbled upon was at KAB Cosmetics — the makeup line from Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her daughters, Arianna and Brielle.

I’ll admit I’m not someone who loves celebrity makeup or skincare products just because of who made them. You really have to know makeup and skincare to create a line, and selling it successfully is another skill entirely.

But, when KAB Cosmetics launched, I wanted to try it (this was years ago). I’ve tried lip kits, lip oils, highlighters, blush, eyeshadow, and contour palette.

And when I saw the sale in November, I grabbed another contour palette and several lip oils for myself and to give as gifts.

Buying a second contour palette made me pull out the first one again. I have a habit of buying new things, using them for a bit, and then moving on to the next thing.

But you know what? This contour palette is BANGIN, and I’ve tried several face palettes on both ends of the price spectrum.

And as I type this, that first palette is almost all used up!

So, let me dive in.

The first thing I notice about this palette is the size: it’s huge, in a great way.

Sure, little palettes are nice for travel and can be cute, but for every day, you need a big palette to dip and swirl your brushes in.

There are two color options depending on your skin tone. I went with Volume one, which includes eight shades from white/translucent to caramel for contouring.

The thing I really love about this palette — aside from the blendable powder formulas — is that I can (and do) use nearly every shade in the palette. How often does that happen?

I don’t use banana powder because I have cool undertones, and it would just be too yellow on me. But, every other powder I can use.

I admit I’m currently not using the Suntan shade because it’s mostly for bronzing, and I’m just not using bronzer currently 🙂 Once summer hits, I definitely will be, though!

Powder shades in Volume I palette

Here’s how I use the powders for my glam:

  • Translucent: inner-corners of my eyes and down the bridge of my nose for the ultimate highlight look
  • Nude and Vanilla Bean: All over setting powder
  • Raw: Eyelid base before eyeshadow
  • Sand: Contouring under the bottom lip and sides of the nose
  • Caramel: Main contour, under cheekbones, jawline, and along my hairline

I love having all the powders I need for my face all in one palette. I do all of my face contouring at once, and having everything right there is so convenient.

If you’re new to contouring or just looking for a palette that has everything in one place, this is the way to go!
