This is a double whammy of a review. I have both palettes from SOSU. SOSU has two palettes, the Complete Contour Palette and the Highlighter kit. Both palettes retail for €29.95 and are very easy to get hold of. I got mine in my local pharmacy.
So let’s start with the contour palette….
The palette is a sleek black palette. The palette doesn’t have a mirror but instead has instructions on how to use the products in the palette. The palette has 6 shades.
Shade 1 is a cream highlighter
Shade 2 is a cream contour
Shade 3 is a powder setting highlighting powder
Shade 4 is a cream contour
Shade 5 is an iridescent highlighter
Shade 6 is a contour powder
So I am a paled skin girl in MAC terms I am normally an NW15 in foundation. So straight of I knew this palette was not going to suit me. The cream shade 1 is too dark to highlight and shade 2 and 3 are far too warm for me to contour with. So for me these shades could never be used to contour with even if I were to wear false tan. I can use shade 2 to bronze when I have false tan on. The product is very soft; you only need to touch the product lightly with your brush. I applied far too much but it blended out so well. Shade 3 is a really nice powder for setting the under eye area it goes on really smoothly. Shade 5 is a really nice cream highlight it has a beautiful golden glow. My favourite product in the palette is shade 6 the contour powder. This powder is beautiful for contouring it blends really smoothly.
I think this palette is defiantly a marmite palette you either love it or you hate it! For me this palette is such a miss, it is one palette I know I will never reach for. I will defiantly be passing this on.
So let’s move onto the star of the collection….
Next up is the Highlighter Kit, this palette feels and looks a hell of a lot more expensive than €29.95. It is a really nice sleek white palette with a nice big mirror. The palette has six highlighters. Three of the shades are baked. The colours are really wearable. The three top shades Melted Gold, Moon Sparkle and Shooting Star are so smooth and buttery. The formulas of these are gorgeous, they apply so smoothly and look stunning on the skin.
The three baked shades Unicorn Dust, Peach Smoothie and Candy Crush. These are a lot more intense with a lot more shimmer. But these are as beautiful and as easy to apply as the powders on the top row.
The quality of the palette itself is very comparable to the Anastasia Beverly Hills palette. This palette is defiantly a keeper for me, I am obsessed with highlighters at the moment so this stunning palette is a much welcomed palette to my collection.
Out of both of these palettes I defiantly think you need the highlight kit.
Hope you found this review useful. Let me know if you use either of these palettes and what you think.
