I’m not normally a multi-use palette kind of girl but occasionally one comes my way that takes my interest. The The Balm Highlite ‘N Con Tour* palette contains eight shades: two shimmer highlighters, two matte highlighters, two contours, a bronzer and a blush. It all comes in a thin, musically themed palette that contained a decent sized mirror, making it perfect for travel.
64Hz is a champagne gold while 125Hz is a peachy highlight. Both are definitely shimmer highlights and not at all glittery.
250Hz is a pinky beige and 500Hz is a ivory yellow, both are too light so show up well on my skin but work well when mixed together to set my undereye concealer and eye primer.
20dB is the lighter and warmer contour of the two and more of a golden brown while 10dB is darker and cooler and a taupey brown. I tend to use 10dB to contour and 20dB to bronze as on a day to day basis I tend to favour matte bronzers
0dB is a very peachy brown that is supposed to be a bronzer but I prefer to use as a blush and works well for no makeup makeup days while 3dB is a raspberry pink blush that gives me the perfect flushed look.
The shades on the bottom row are definitely more of a satin finish and look beautiful on the skin.
Overall I’m impressed with the palette. All the shades are pigmented and blend well on the skin. The shades all last a good eight hours for me and look as good as they did when I applied them.
While you can get away with using this palette with lighter skin tones if you use a light hand I would definitely recommend this for people with more medium skin tones.
You can purchase it here where it’s currently on sale.
