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.

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.
