blends well

this highlight is beautiful and gives you the lit from within look, the contour shade is perfect for light to medium skin and blends like a dream

- Sephora User

this does not, it’s an absolutely perfect super cool toned taupe that blends beautifully into the most believable contour i’ve ever experienced

- Sephora User

staying power


i've tried many contouring and highlighting products and these are by far the best in texture, long wear and blendability

- Sephora User

the contour is amazing, perfect tone, a little goes a long way, blends so smooth and lasts all day

- Beautybay User



i gave it three stars because i'm not a fan of the highlighter - i find it way too glittery for daytime use and it looked kind of cakey on my skin

just a soft, sheer glow that's subtle but it's definitely there

- Sephora User

it is on the sheer side, not glittery and provides a healthy glow

Disappointing Product

I was extremely disappointed with this product. I read that it works well for paler skin tones, however it ended up looking very muddy. It was also very patchy when I went to blend out my contour, so I ended up washing off my face and redoing my makeup. I would not recommend this product!

Amazing powders!

I hardly ever give products 5 stars but this little duo is worth every penny. The sculpting shade is not too warm or too cool on my skin tone and it blends so easily. The highlight shade Candlelight has become one of my favorite go to highlighters. It is on the sheer side, not glittery and provides a healthy glow. If you're looking for a metallic highlight this is not it. You get almost as much product as the full size for a lot less $$. If you've been wanting to try this brand I recommend picking up this duo!

Possible new favorite

I've been happy with my Anastasia contour palette, but I bought this on a whim and now I'm not sure which I like more! Both the contour and highlight colors are almost perfect and really accurately simulate light/shadow (at least for my skin tone). The KA duo seems less pigmented than Anastasia's product, but I think it blends better and is easier to build - so probably the perfect contour for beginners. Bonus points for being small and easy to store.

Natural and blendable

I am very fair so I have a hard time with contouring. Every kit has several shades, and I can only use one, so they're pointless for me. The contour powder in this duo is incredibly pigmented. It blends like a dream. It adds dimension without adding too much color or warmth. It's what a contouring powder should be, not a glorified bronzer. In this duo, you get plenty of powder as I've hit the pan in about 3 products in my life. When I hit the pan on this one, I'll happily buy the full-size individual contouring powder. The highlight is lovely, but there are tons of great highlighters on the market sold as individuals. I enjoy the highlighter a lot, and it gives a lovely but natural glow. Easily buildable.

I'm very pleased with this purchase. I got it because I've been wanting to try the sculpting powder without spending an arm and a leg. One thing to keep in mind is that the sculpting powder in this little duo comes in "medium". I would have preferred "fair", but luckily this is proving very effective on my fair skin. In fact, I can see this working on even porcelain skin, as long as you use a light hand. It can be sheered out.The sculpting powder is a perfect subtle contour. It has a cool tone without being grey. It's superbly easy to apply and blend and never looks harsh as long as you are carefully and blend well, which is so easy with this product. Sculpting my cheekbones has never been so effortless or looked so natural.So, I was expecting to love the contour but I'm just as pleased with this highlighter! It's not too metallic but has plenty of glowl, and I think it would work for most skin tones. On my fair skin, it gives a subtle, natural glow.Since buying this I've used it every day. Great way to to the sculpting powder before committing to that $44 price tag. « less
