KKW Beauty Powder Contour & Highlight Kit retails for $52 USD and contains 30 grams (1.04 oz) of product. I live in Montreal, Canada, so I paid about $86.54 CAD. It's claimed to be buildable and easy to blend.


I really like the color of the packaging. It comes in a big and the contour kit also has matching box that it comes in.
  • 2 matte contour shades (15 grams of product / 0.52 oz )
  • 2 shimmer highlight shades (layer both for intense glow) (15 grams of product / 0.52 oz )
  • Dual-ended brush (angled brush for contour and rounded brush for highlighter)
I got the kit in Medium and wasn't sure if the shades will complement my medium/deep skin tone but surprisingly most of them worked well. I loved the yellow/gold highlighter! For shade reference, I'm in NC40-NC42 in MAC. 
  • Highlight I - Soft Yellow Gold
  • Highlight II - Champagne Pink
  • Contour I - Warm Honey
  • Contour II - Natural Tan

Overall Impression
I think it's a good kit but it's overpriced. I wish she didn't include the brush because I really didn't like it and I doubt I will be using it in the future. As for the contour and highlight shades, I do feel like the highlight shades are better. They apply beautifully and blend well. 
As for the contour shades, I do feel like they don't blend as well as I expected them to especially with the brush that comes with the kit. I noticed applying with the brush just made it look patchy but the contour shades ended up working well with my other brushes. There's also a lot of fallout with the contour shades and a lot of the product gets on the brushes. 
I do regret paying this much for a kit especially since I had to pay shipping but I've been using it a lot lately. I doubt I will be using the brush though.

  1. I really loved this honest review! I've been super curious about this contour palette from KKW, but I also agree with you that it is over-priced... Still not 100% sold on it. xoxo - Lauren Will from
