Smashbox has been ROCKING it in 2018 for me, and I couldn’t be more excited to write this blog post! I received the Smashbox Cali Contour Palette back in March, and I’ve been using it non-stop. I’ve been testing out contour kits, different bronzers, setting powers and translucent powders for years now, and I can honestly say this is my favourite set that I’ve found together!
First off, these are my perfect shades! Sometimes you get a set with too dark of a contour or too light of a highlight, but not with the Smashbox Cali Contour Palette! This palette features 6 pans: 1 contour, 1 bronzer, 1 under eye setting powder, 2 highlighters and a blush.
I have a mini contour kit from Smashbox, and I love the yellow undereye powder in it, but weirdly the contour made me break out on my cheeks! This palette has possibly the same undereye powder, and I love it so so much. It’s very brightening and keeps my concealer in check all day long. My second favourite pan is the lighter highlight shade. It looks amazing on my cheeks, super natural and glowy! It’s my favourite highlighter right now!
All of the pans are versatile to use on other areas of the face too! In the below picture I’m wearing the bronzer in my crease, contour colour in my eyebrows, a highlight on my lid, and of course the other pans where they’re supposed to be!
All in all, I think the Smashbox Cali Contour Palette is an amazing kit. I would highly recommend getting it if you’re in the market for a new palette. The shades are pigmented and blendable, they look pretty on the skin, and the palette retails for only $39/Cdn, what a steal! You can buy it here!
I’m just winging it. My life, my eyeliner, everything!
