Today I thought I’d review two drugstore contour palettes from wet n wild. Easily my favourite cheap drugstore brand when it comes to eyeshadows/blushes & lipsticks with quality & pigmentation. I saw a couple videos on this prior to purchasing them, and they had nothing but great reviews. So I went out to look for them. These contour palettes come in two different shades: Dulce De Leche (for fairer skin tones) & Caramel Toffee (for darker skin tones). Dulce De Leche has a more neutral brown where as Caramel Toffee is definitely warmer by quite a bit.
I picked up this palette a couple months ago, right after I picked up the Kat Von D Light & Shade Palette (let me know if you would like a review of this in the comments below if you’re interested). I never know why I always pick up these awesome drugstore products right after I go purchase a high end one. (as you will see again in my upcoming review of some highlighters)
As you can see from the packaging, it’s already pretty beat up from my daily use. Yet if you take a look at the palette itself… it’s barely hitting pan. And I contour & bronze like a mad man.
Caramel Toffee – This is the darkest shade range out of this contour palette line from wet n wild. On the left side we have the undereye setting powder in a banana colour and on the right we have a darker, cocoa colour. I do find that the cocoa colour leans towards the warmer, reddish kind of brown, so you will have to use this with a light hand (I usually use this to accentuate my cheekbones) and ideally not as a nose contour (personally).
Dulce De Leche – The lighter shade out of the two. Ideal for contouring your nose and cheekbones. If you really have a cooler skin tone, this one will probably be the best out of the two for you.

Overall, another great bang for your buck. I got each palette for around $5.99 from Superstore. Extremely pigmented & buttery velvet soft. Another winner. Great for beginners who want to try contouring or for those of you who are contour pros… this would be another great addition to your collection. Heck, why not?
If you have this product, what are your thoughts?
