For somebody who claims not to really contour, I do have a few contour posts coming up on the blog and I’ve got to admit, it’s getting a lot more accessible to me than it was before. It’s especially easy with products like the MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette in Medium Dark*, which combines verything you need to highlight and contour into one compact…compact.
The MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palettes come in a square black plastic container that opens up to reveal a mirror as well as a highlight and contour powder. The powders slide to the side and underneath there’s a cream highlight. I appreciate that if you are going to have creams and powders in the same container, they are separated this way. Because the cream is “hidden” when using the powders, I had no issues at all with getting powder into my cream. I thought this was pretty clever packaging from MAC!MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette in Medium Dark includes a Cream Colour Base in Naked Universe which is a golden shimmery beige, a Shaping Powder in Light Sweep, which is a warm peach with the tiniest bit of shimmer, and a Sculpting Powder in Shadester which a warm medium matte brown. The formula on all three products is excellent.
The MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palettes are available in 4 difference shades for different skin tones, and while I would not describe my skin as Medium Dark, these soft blendable powders and creams make it still completely wearable as you can see below.
Using the MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette in Medium Dark definitely adds more dimension back into my face compared to just using foundation (on the left). I went for a more natural contour but I still love the effect. The brown shade is very warm, so I don’t feel like you get the traditional sculpting feeling and it is more bronzing, at least on my skintone. The highlight shades are great for those looking for a subtle glow that’s not at all glittery and the peachy powder would be nice and brightening, especially if you have a darker skintone than me.
If you’re looking to get even more glow for evening, I love how this palette ooks paired with the MAC Lustre Drops in Barbados Girl from the MAC Future MAC Collection (you can see what that looks like here).I was definitely nervous with a Medium Dark palette showed up for me to review, but I’m glad I tested it out because not only would these shades work on a wide range of skintones, but the MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette in Medium Dark is perfect for both travel and daily use.
What do you think of the MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette? Are any of the shades on your wishlist?
