When it comes to my makeup and beauty routine, I tend to stick with the same sorts of shades and colours. But, with spring refreshing my take on on style and beauty, it’s felt like the perfect time to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.
This has also come at a perfect time since in only a few weeks I’ll be going to France, Italy, and the Netherlands and I love packing makeup that offers a bit more freedom and versatility – like a palette does.
Paula’s Choice Blush It on Contour Palette Review
This highlighter is a soft blush tone with a slight sheen in it. It’s very natural and blends in beautifully.
I have found some highlighters (especially liquid or stick highlighters) can be difficult to blend and end up creating an obvious highlight line, but this powder effortlessly blends right in and appears very natural.
When I talk about being more adventurous with my beauty routine this spring, this is the blush shade I am referring to!
Typically I go for softer pinks or mauve’s, but this punchy coral is such fun and just feels perfectly fresh for spring. This refreshed blush is bright yet blends in beautifully to create a more natural and soft coral cheek.
One of my immediate favourites from this set was Peony. It jumped out at me the instant I opened the packaging. Peony is a very delicate peach-pink blush that applies very naturally.
I found that on my fair skin that this blush gave that pretty “English rose” hue that I love so much. This blush has a very light and refresh look to it and doesn’t appear obvious on the skin which is why I think this blush is perhaps the best for creating that “no makeup makeup-look”.
Everyone needs a good bronzer in their beauty bin. I personally have always found it difficult to track down a great bronzer that looks natural, blends easily, and doesn’t have a shimmer or is orange toned.
This bronzer is truly one of the only three that I have ever tried that ticked all the boxes that I needed it to. It’s very blendable, was matte, and didn’t have a orange undertone to it. All of this combined made for a bronzer that once applied appeared very natural.
In general, I have found that lipsticks, nail polishes, and blushes in a dusty rose shade tend to be my favourites. I love that romantic hue, and this blush is no exception.
Along with Peony, this has really become one of the most worn blushes in the palette for me. This muted pink applies really beautifully and looks very natural on my fair skintone. I found that it gave the perfect flushed look.
My love for a good soft mauve blush all began with my Hourglass Cosmetics blush in Mood Exposure, and now I am hooked on Paula’s Choice matte soft mauve blush too.
I’ve found that Soft Mauves like this one tend to be pretty universal with people’s skin tones. It’s a very warm toned blush and instantly adds a natural rosy tone to your cheeks without being bright or unnatural.
Overall, I found this palette incredible. The blushes, bronzer, and highlighter were all shades that were easy to wear and natural – but the shades also varied enough that the palette felt versatile.
The best part about this palette is that I found the texture of the products to be very velvety and blendable.
The bronzer blended in easily and didn’t create a muddy look when applied, the highlighter seamlessly blended-in and there was no obvious line, and all the blushes were easy to blend-in in order to create natural looks.
