Contouring is still gets all the hype, and one of those products that's had a lot of talk is the Australis Cosmetics AC on Tour Contouring & Highlighting Cream Kit.

The kit comes in a large black flat palette, with a large mirror, and it contains three highlighting shades and three contouring shades. It is also available in 4 different shades (Lighter than Light, Light, Medium and Dark), and I've put the Light shade to the test.

I am not very good at the whole contouring thing, but one of the things I noticed first and really liked about this palette is that it has a step-by-step guide on the back, on how to both contour and highlight, making it a tad easier for people like me.

The shades are all very pigmented and can easily be built up, although being a little cautious as applying too much, does make it look a little cakey. I find that I get the best and most natural result when I blend it with a damp beauty blender.

As always with palettes, there are shades that you like and that suit you, and others that don’t, and so, from the six shades in the palette, I've probably been using four of them, and in particularly the darkest shade, I find too dark - but then it may mean that I should have gone for the Lighter than Light palette shade in stead. But that said, I have been particularly enjoying the lightest shade as a concealer under my eyes, for which it is the perfect shade.

The creams last until about mid-day on my combination skin, and then starts to fade, but with the use of a primer first, and set with a translucent powder and followed by a setting spray, I can make these last most of the day.

At just $16.95 this palette is great drug store option, and great quality for the low prince. You can naturally get better quality products, but then you also generally have to pay 4-5 times the price. So this is also a great option if you (like me!), are wanting to experiment and learn how to highlight and contour.
