The contour kit from collection has always been a staple product since I first discovered it, I think it’s wonderful. The packaging and product have changed a bit so I thought it was time to give this one a go. I would not be able to tell you if the formula changed at all, my opinion has not changed from this product to my memory of the product I had before.
What does Collection say about their product?

This light-weight formula will glide across the hallows of the cheeks to accentuate the cheekbones to appear more defined and structured. Use the pearlescent shimmering powder to highlight and illuminate the natural facial high points

What do I think?
If I could buy the bronzer separately I would. But for some reason, I never found a bronzer as nice as the one in this pallet. No matter where I look. I do not mind the highlight but I very rarely use highlight which makes it feel redundant to have it. I also admit that this highlight is too glittery for me. I have used it on my collarbone but the results weren’t as nice. I think this has to do with age as well, when I was a bit younger I found highlighters like this so nice. Whereas now I just want a simple glow, nothing more. It’s personal preference though, the highlighter is very nice just not necessarily my cup of tea. The bronzer makes it all better I absolutely love the bronzer. It’s a beautiful color, it looks very good on me if I dare say so myself. In addition, it is easy to work with. The packaging is very simple and plastic but truly not much is needed. There hardly is any smell, if it does smell like anything it smells like mica/talc. It’s not overwhelming or overpowering. It is very simple and lovely. The product is easy to take with you on holiday or when you are doing make-up at someone else’s house.

Overall a great product, do make sure to swatch the product as the colour is singular. Thus makes sure it is not too dark or too light. I do hope that Collection will extend their color range as this is actually abysmal. The product contains 10grams in total, and the retail price is roughly 5 pounds. To me this is reasonable for the product, you do not need that much to get the effect you want. Which makes it worth the money to me.
