Australis AC on Tour Australis Contour & Highlighting Kit Review & Swatches

I was very lucky to have won this beautiful Australis AC ON Tour Contouring & Highlight Kit from the beautiful Lilit over at Makeup and Macaroons when she had a competition on her Instagram a few months ago.

This Contouring & Highlighting Palette is a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contouring Kit at a fraction of the price. It retails for $16.95 and is currently available at Priceline.

This kit comes with 3 highlighting and 3 contouring colours. All the colours are surprisingly very pigmented. Both the highlighting and contouring colours come with pink and yellow undertones. There is also a shimmering highlighting colour which is perfect if you want to achieve that instant glow.
The contour colours are very pigmented and those with fair skin should use a light hand when applying the colour (I speak from experience).
I've also found using this palette as eyeshadows really great because of the range of colour (even though they may seem the same to some). The last contour colour with the slightly red undertone is so beautiful in the crease with a beautiful brown eyeshadow or as a transition colour.
Another advantage of this kit is that it comes with instructions on how to contour and highlight using this kit. I think this is a huge advantage for those starting out with contour and highlighting.

Would I recommend buy this? Absolutely! This is a great palette if you don't want to spend $40 USD on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette, if you're studying to become a makeup artist and don't want to be lugging around individual highlighting and contouring colours and those starting out who want to see if contour and highlight is for you without spending a lot of money.
