This Mac Contour & Sculpt Yourself Palette is not just a must-have, it’s a makeup masterpiece, a powdery miracle, that everyone should have in their collection, if you are a right fit that is… It’s so good that this gem is now my new reference on which I evaluate all future acquisitions. This palette has been on my wish-list the moment it came out! Since I’ve been wanting Emphasize (Off white with fine pearl Shaping Powder) & Peaches (Pure Peach Blush) for such a long time, the moment I saw that both were included in this palette, it became a no brainer.
Let’s just do my usual review and you’ll be the judge if it’s the palette you’ve been looking for your whole life …
Contour & Sculpt Yourself Palette is perfect for contouring, highlighting and bronzing to give you bone structure worthy of a supermodel. It’s a versatile, refillable, all-in-one palette featuring a Shaping Powder, Sculpting Powder and four Powder Blushes in Satin, Sheertone and Sheertone Shimmer textures.

♥ A fair to Light-Medium skin tone dream. Every color is beautiful on my pale skin (no dud to report!!!).
♥ This is a refillable palette.
♥ Great for traveling.
♥ Since everything comes wrapped individually & full-sized, it’s not a pre-made palette of lesser quality like we usually see, like those palettes offered as Holiday Specials!
More on each product:
♦ Emphasize (Off white with fine pearl): this is such a beautiful color, perfect for highlighting and under eye setting. It goes on so soft and has such a wonderful, pearly, clean, illuminating finish without the glitters and shimmers (Doesn’t “emphasize” my fine lines or my skin’s imperfections).
♦ Sculpt (Soft taupe matte): this is a pro product available in refill only. This powder is completely matte and smooth. It’s a light soft brown with a tinge of grey. Perfect for any skin tone from fair to medium. It’s not too grey that it wouldn’t be flattering on warmer skin tones and so brown that it would look muddy on cooler tone. I use it often to bronze my face and it’s surprisingly dazzling!
♦ Peaches (Pure peach- Sheertone): I really like this blush. It is a matte, true peach colour. It is a Sheertone formula so you can apply in a single thin layer or build it up for a more intense colour. This blush is a nice soft texture without being powdery or chalky! On my very pale skin, it gives a natural flush to my cheeks.
♦ Sunbasque (Gilded peach with pearl – Sheertone Shimmer): Sunbasque is a peach-pink colour with a hint of gold. A little goes a long way with this colour, and only a slight dusting on the cheeks will provide you with a beautiful glow. This blush looks slightly bronze in the pan, however on the skin, it provides a natural magnificent sunkissed radiance rather than a bronze look, as the peachy-pink is very apparent.
♦ Trace Gold (Gold with shimmer – Sheertone Shimmer): I actually struggled to describe Trace Gold; is it a blush, highlighter or bronzer? For me, it’s a combination of all three, and, for that matter, I really enjoy using it. In the pan, it looks like a brown with plenty of gold shimmer. However it’s not super-shimmery – the gold acts like a glow, catching the light at certain angles.
Note: Trace gold is something that I would have probably never given a second look at the Mac store. I would have been missing out so much…
♦ Fleur Power (Soft bright pinkish/coral – Satin): It’s an excellent everyday blush with all-day staying power, and I’d even go so far as to call it universally flattering. The color is fairly neutral pink– neither too cool nor too warm. It’s perfect! A must have …
Note: Definitely use a light hand applying, it is SO pigmented. This blush will last a lifetime…
♥ Doesn’t apply to me but I understand why my darker skinned friends would totally not enjoy this palette. I think it’s more suited for fair to medium skin tone!!! Since the products are all full-sizes and come individually, Mac should have let customer choose between different shades in their collection!!! Just saying ….
I couldn’t be happier with this Mac Contour & Sculpt Yourself Palette. It fits my everyday needs, all the products are truly stunning. Exquisite formulas all across the board. What can I say; I’m smitten with all these gorgeous powders. Having all superstar products in one value palette, I’m a happy camper and will be for a very long time. Don’t think twice and grab this classic treasure while it’s still available …
Thanks for stopping by my beauties!
