The first ever bronzer/ contour (I know they are two separate things) I owned was the too faced chocolate soleil bronzer in milk chocolate back when it was the old packaging. I loved it, it smelled like chocolate, therefore I had to have it for Christmas.
I was a sophomore in high school at the time, pretty new to makeup in general. I didn’t really know how to use it, so it wasn’t something I clung to in my everyday makeup routine and soon fell out completely.
Bronzer is the closest thing I’ve ever gotten to contouring or “tanning” my face. Definitely isn’t a necessity for me though.
But, one night a couple months ago I saw Dani Mansutti using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in a YouTube video and I thought “what is that gorgeous palette?” Especially the banana shade which to my hearts content is actually called “banana.” Score.
So, I did my research, found it on Sephora, picked it up at the shop, and since then I have been pretty in love with this thing.
Vanilla: can be used as a powder, highlight, eyeshadow
Banana: a highlighting powder, especially good for under the eyes to cancel dark circles
Sand: a highlighting powder
Java: a warm mocha contour
Fawn: light brown contour
Havana: a warm red based contour
All of the shades are highly pigmented. It’s simply amazing.
In my opinion it is worth the $40 because it has many different uses besides contouring.
This palette’s shades can definitely be used as eyeshadow too.
I just love this thing, let me know what you think of it! 🙂
