Revlon X Chloe Morello Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit Review With Swatches
Updated: Aug 5, 2019
I couldn't resist purchasing this palette when I saw it in the Revlon section at my local Priceline. It was only $15, the pan size was large and the shades perfectly matched my pale skin tone. I always find it hard to choose a contour/bronzing palette because the bronzers are always too dark for my skin or the other shades in the palette are too bright but this palette came in a light/medium option which suited my skin tone. In this post I will be reviewing the Revlon X Chloe Morello Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit including swatches of the shades and a detailed breakdown of the palette.
This is what the palette looks like closed, opened and at the back.
As you can see the packaging is very sleek and basic while making the palette easy to identify from the writing across the front cover. I liked the inside of the palette alot because the mirror was so large that I could use it while I was doing my full face of makeup. The only concern that I had with the pans were that they were very close to each other which meant that if I was getting product from one pan some would transfer into the ones closer to it also making it hard to keep clean. The back of the palette was very helpful as it had instruction on which powder should be applied to different parts of the face as well as a description of what it was used for.
The palette came with a plastic film placed over the shades to indicate what they were and how to use them which I thought was really cute and helpful especially if you were just starting out with makeup.
The first image is the swatches that I did without the flash on and the last image is with the flash on.
Each shade felt buttery and smooth when I swatched it but left a lot of excess powder around the pans especially when applied using a brush. This is something that I would be wary of with all palettes particularly if you are a clean freak like me because it can really dirty your makeup vanity, clothes or other products.
This shade was very pigmented and swatch evenly onto my hand
The pigment was more subtle in this shade which I expected since it was a soft highlight
The powder definitely matched the description of providing warmth as the shade was very pigmented
I feel as though another highlight shade could have replaced this shade in the palette because it was very similar to the bronzer. I love the way it looked against my skin tone which was a plus.
Banana Powder Flash Back Test
It is always difficult for me to find a drugstore banana powder that will set my under eyes and won't flash back when I take photos with flash. I used a fluffy setting brush to powder the back of my hand with the banana powder and took a photo with the flash. Here is the result
The powder was perfect! I could not see anything when the flash was used and it actually evened out my skin tone making it look smoother on camera. I would buy the palette just for this shade alone. As long as you do not overdo it with the shade you will have no problem with it and will find that it improves your makeup look.
I loved this palette and am very glad that I decided to buy it. For a drugstore contour kit it had a nice range of shades, came at a great price and had a lot of product. I would recommend that you get your hands on this product and try it asap!
