KKW Beauty Powder Contour and Highlight Kit | Review

Kim Kardashian is a true beauty icon to me because she’s always looking flawless and looks like she ‘woke up like that.’ I love how natural she looks, even though she is still wearing makeup. When she announced her makeup brand KKW Beauty I was, and I still am, super excited! Today I’m reviewing the KKW Beauty Powder Contour and Highlight Kit.

The first product I’ve bought two weeks ago is the KKW Beauty Powder Contour & Highlight Kit. The kit has 4 big pans with 2 highlighters and 2 contour shades. I bought the light kit, but there are 2 other versions as well: a medium kit and a dark kit. I love that Kim made 3 different versions to match different skin tones.

When you buy the kit, you get a two-sided brush as well. One with a rounded side and one with an angled side. The rounded side is for applying highlighter and the angled side is for applying the contour shades. I see a lot of influencers talking bad about the brush but I actually like it. I felt like it applies the products very easily. However, I don’t like that it’s dual-ended because now I’m not able to store it beside my other brushes.

The pans are actually really huge! The full Contour & Highlight kit contains 4x 0.26 OZ/7.5 grams. You definitely get a lot of product for your money! As you can see there’s a huge mirror in it as well, which is pretty easy for traveling or if you don’t have a mirror with you.

The highlighters are very stunning, but not super blinding. If you love a more natural glow, you’re going to love these. However, I do think both the highlighters are very powdery and almost chalky. That’s a little disappointing for me. Thankfully, it doesn’t look really chalky on my face though.

The left shade is a bronzer shade to me since it’s pretty warm. The right shade is a very pretty contour shade to my skin tone. I enjoy both shades but I notice myself grabbing the right shade the most. Both the contour shades are less powdery than the highlighters.

I actually used both shades as eyeshadow and it looked good surprisingly, so that’s also an option to use this kit for!

Shade description 

  • Highlight I – Soft Champagne
  • Highlight II – Soft Peach
  • Contour I – Light Tan
  • Contour II – Mid Tone Beige

As you can tell by the swatches, the shades are all pigmented. However, the highlighters aren’t blinding and a bit chalky. Both the contour shades are very pretty, but Contour 2 is my favorite!

The product

This is what is stated on the KKW Beauty website:

Contour, shade, sculpt and highlight with the KKW Beauty Powder Contour & Highlight Kit. The soft, buildable powder formula makes application easy and blends effortlessly for a seamless look. The pressed powder quad features two matte contour shades, ideal for sculpting hollows of cheeks, hairline nose and jawline, and two shimmer highlight shades for brightening and adding glow to cheekbones, cupid’s bow, nose, corners of the eyes, collar bones and any areas you want to add radiant shimmer. Layer the two shimmer highlight shades for a more intense glow. Use the angled brush to apply and blend the contour shades, and the rounded brush to apply the highlighter shades.

The price 

I bought this beauty when it was on sale on Valentine’s Day, I guess it was around $32 but I had to pay $14,95 shipping costs for international shipping. A total of $46,95 which is 38 euros. The normal price of this product $52.  When you live in Europe I might be possible that you have to pay customs so keep that in mind.

Even though I don’t regret buying this palette, I don’t think I would buy it again. The highlighters aren’t my favorite ones out there and I would preferably buy the only contour shade I like most. 

However, I’m still very excited to try the créme contour stick and her upcoming collection with her make-up artist Mario (see review here)!

Hope to see you next time loves, 

xoxo Simone
