Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette in Coral Glow - Reviewed!

Contour palettes seem to be on of the things all brands seem to be bringing out their own versions of. I've tried a few, and when Rimmel brought there's out the packaging instantly caught my attention. What can I say, i'm a sucker for anything rose gold. I've been putting it to the test so thought it was time to share a review.

As I mentioned I loved the packaging. The rose gold is a really nice detail that stands out. It's also sleek without too much excess packaging which is always something I like. The palette comes with three powder shades which can be used together to create a natural contour look.

All the shades aren't shimmer and instead have more of a glowy finish. This helps to give that natural finish. The product comes in three shades and I went for Coral Glow as I find that sort of colour suits my skintone best. I tend to start using the middle contour shade which is one of my favourite things about this palette as it very cool toned. I lot of contour shades tend to be warm and can give an orange look to the skin. Instead, this shade has a very natural finish which applied to the skin. I then go in with the blush shade which is nicely pigmented whilst still looking natural. Then I use the highlighter to add glow to the skin where the light would hit the face.

The consistency of the powders are really nice and don't look patchy of flakey on the skin. They apply nicely and give a really nice finish on the skin. The wear time is also pretty great. On a long day I did find the pigmentation of the colours did fade a little but nothing major. Although none of the shades are completely matte I find this helps to make it look more natural on the skin. 

If you have fair skin I think this will work really well. None of the shades seem to be created for a darker skintone which is a shame. If your are new to contouring I think this is also a really nice starter palette and the fact it's so compact makes it great for travelling. 


Have you tried this? What is your favourite contour palette?
