I absolutely love this palette!
I was looking to get into contouring, and nothing really worked, everything I used was so obvious, and I hate the look most women have nowadays, where you can see those stripes of contouring on their cheeks.
Enters this palette, and omg, it's so awesome, it allows me to subtly contour my cheeks with so little product! The contour shade is very natural, and if you are light handed with it, and blend well, it really gives the illusion of chiseled cheeks.
Then comes the rosy blush, and it is so ethereal, luminous without being shimmery, and gives a natural flush to the face.
The illuminator is optional, I use it sometimes on the tops of my cheeks. It's not a necessary step, but it sort of completes the look.
The texture of all three shades is smooth and silky, and you can go as light handed or heavy handed with it as you prefer.
I do have problems with my blush brush sometimes picking up a bit of the other colors, but it's not annoying to the point where it takes something away from the product.
It is pricey, but since you only need a little bit to complete the look, it lasts ages.
