The brand new Diego Dalla Palma Highlight and Blush Contour Kit is a super sleek palette featuring five sumptous cream colours designed to shape and sculpt the face. Here’s the low down on it.
Kits like these can have a huge impact on the look of your makeup and this one is particularly handy because it comes with a really good oval brush for superior application and blending.

I am so not an expert when it comes to contouring, but I actually really enjoyed playing with this.
Diego Dalla Palma Highlight and Blush Contour Kit Swatches
The texture of the creams is really beautiful. It’s super soft and creamy and blends and melts really easily into the skin.
I started by applying the cream matte highlight shade without shimmer:
This was too much on my nose by the way, so I had to wipe a little away.
Once I blended that, I applied the contour shade.
Again, this blends in easily and leaves a nice natural finish on the skin.
I then used a blend of both the blush shades over the apples of my cheeks. It gives a lovely juicy look.
Finally I swiped on the shimmery highlighter – I think this is my favourite one. It is a beautiful champagne colour and you can build from a subtle glow to a stronger highlight.
I really like this kit. I am not overly confident with cream products but I find this really quite easy to use and once set with a light dusting of powder, it lasts really well. The first time I used it (featured in these photos) I did it on top of foundation. Today I used the kit first and applied foundation after. I found I need a lot less foundation so I might stick with that technique.
The Diego Dalla Palma Highlight and Blush Contour Kit is £30 and available here.
