Susan Thompson Cosmetics Contour Palette 6-Well | Review

 Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

With the tricks of the trade becoming mainstream, it isn't surprising that contour palettes have gained considerable traction recently. Every makeup artist carries them in their kits, and now makeup enthusiasts flock to add them to their daily routines because the benefits are many. They provide a convenient selection of products to create chiseled features and the ability to direct the way that light dances on the high points of the architecture of the face. A good contour palette creates the perfect chiaroscuro effect that produces the effect of light and shadow modeling where it either does not exist, or where it needs to be further accentuated and enhanced.

Susan Thompson, a professional celebrity makeup-artist in Los Angeles, added an amazing contour palette to her eponymously named makeup line, and the quality is breathtaking. Susan Thompson Contour Palette 6-Well features 3 powder highlighter shades, 2 powder contour shades and one powder bronzer shade. All six are ultra-finely milled, boast the creamiest consistency, and effortlessly glide across the skin. They neither settle into fine lines, nor do they accentuate pores.
 The compact itself is huge and features a very generous amount of product.
The mirror on the inside of the lid, unlike many compact mirrors, is very large and easy to use.
Top Row Highlighters (Left to Right): beige neutral (Matte), creamy yellow (Matte) and beige (Semi-Matte).

Bottom Row Contours (Left to Right): Sun-kissed warm mid-tone brown (Matte), cooler leaning mid-tone taupe brown (Matte) and mid-tone neutral bronze (Bronze).
STEP ONE- CONTOUR: Depending on skin tone, begin with contour shades 4 or 5. Apply contour shade to sides of nose, jawline and underneath cheekbones.

STEP TWO - BRONZE: Follow with contour shade 6. Apply to nose, cheeks, chin and forehead to add warmth to complexion.

STEP THREE - HI-LITE: Depending on skin tone, use hi-liter shade 1, 2 or 3. Apply to bridge of nose, cupids bow, above lip, above cheekbones and brows.
The darker shades for shading and defining while the lighter shades for sculpting and enhancing features.

  1. This looks stunning my dearest twinster! What a wonderful palette. I have always used D&G blush in tan but just ordered the Marc Jacobs one. I'm putting this on my list ipso facto!
    Sending much light your way.

    1. Hello, my darling! It really is a delightful palette! I know precisely about which D&G Blush you speak! It's lovely! I think that I have seen the MJ one at Sephora! You have impeccable taste! Yes, this one deserves pride of place on your list! I hope that all is well! When does our term end? Next week is the last week of classes, and thankfully my TA's are doing all of the paper grading! xoxoxoxox

  3. Very similar in look and shade colors to the Australis AC on TOUR palette. I did a double take, in fact. Looking at the ingredients showed me they are indeed different products.

    1. It definitely looks similar, but you are right the ingredients are quite different. Contouring palettes have become so popular lately, that soon everyone will have their version out, I suspect! I hope that you are having a lovely weekend! :-)

  4. What a stunning contour palette! I still haven't really cracked the code on contouring, so I get along with a dual ended contour stick for the few times that I use it. But this luxe palette might make me want to learn how to do it like the pros!

    1. Hi Destany! Susan Thompson is a professional celebrity makeup artist in Los Angeles. Her line grew out of the need to have certain products in her own kit, and she wanted to use exclusively cruelty-free hind end products– so she launched her own line.
