Over & over again I keep getting asked about a good highlight/contour palette that won't break the bank or make holes in anyone's pockets. Well, behold the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette! 🎨 I won't waste time with nonsense, let's get started with this review...

After the release of Kat Von D's Shade + Light Face Contour Palette, there was an overflow in the beauty market of products with a very similar theme. Most of them were high-end and expensive. The few that were drugstore were inexpensive, but lacked the quality or did not come in the multi-hue format. Finally, after some time, NYX Cosmetics released their Highlight & Contour Pro Palette; however, for the longest time, it was practically impossible to find. Also, it was a bit more expensive than the palette we're about to talk about.

Finally, one day while browsing my local ULTA, I came across a small display of Makeup Revolution and in it a contour palette. I wasn't able to swatch it in store, but I had already heard many good things about this brand so I took a chance and bought it. #NoRegrets! I was so impressed with it that I'm now sharing it with you.

Included in the palette are 4 highlights (2 matte, 2 shimmer), 3 contour powders (all matte) and a bronzer (satin). Every single one of them is perfectly pigmented, easy to use and blendable.

Highlight 1 → (Matte) Soft Peach
Highlight 2 → (Matte) Banana Yellow
Highlight 3 → (Shimmer) Soft Apricot
Highlight 4 → (Shimmer) Light Champagne with Gold Veining

Contour 1 → (Matte) Medium Brown [warm]
Contour 2 → (Matte) True Taupe [neutral]
Contour 3 → (Matte) Chocolate Brown [cool]
Bronzer 1 → (Satin) Bronzer Brown with Sheen

This beautiful palette retails for $15. You can find it at any ULTA brick-and-mortar stores as well as or Makeup Revolution website. This palette is definitely worth every penny and the price is simply perfect!

On the image below, I am wearing the entire palette on my face (highlight, bronzer & contour). This is the makeup I wore for the Mr.'s birthday party right after Thanksgiving last year. I love how it turned out & that it lasted all evening without any touch-ups or re-application. I definitely recommend the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette to any of you who are looking for a good palette to purchase at low cost.
