REVIEW | ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS CREAM CONTOUR KIT (LIGHT)

After being featured in my favorites of 2015 I thought it was time to write a review about this cream contour kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I own it for a few months now and used it quite often and today I'll share my thoughts on it! Make sure to keep on reading if you want to know if it's worth the price

abh cream contour kit review
I really like how Anasatasia improved the packaging. No more cardboard that gets dirty and damaged so easily. This one is more sturdy and looks way more clean and classy. But Anastasia didn't only change the packaging: also the colors! That was the reason why I bought this contour kit. The older shades were too warm in my opinion and that would look to orangy and unnatural on my skintone, where as these are cooler and suit my skintone better.
Not only the packaging and the new colors are amazing, also the texture. In older videos I heard that the creams were really hard to blend, so I'm quite sure the formula has changes as well because these creams blend like a dream! I'm quite fair, NC15 in MAC shade, so I was a little scared of the contour shades but they blend seemlessly! 
I'm quite fair, NC15 in MAC shade, so I was a little scared that the contour and highlight shades would be too dark for me but that is definitely not the case: they blend seemlessly! When applied with a light hand the contourshades look really natural. I'm glad I picked this one over the new fair contour kit, because I'm quite sure that that would have been too light for me.

I don't use this product on a daily basis because it takes too much time and I'm really lazy. There are a lot of days I don't even wear makeup because I prefer to stay in bed longer. But when I know that I'm going to take pictures I'll use this cream contourkit. It really makes my skin look so much better in pictures. I don't even need a filter haha!

Swatches fair, neutral, banana
Swatches java, light sculpt, havana
I really recommend this product to anyone who loves a flawless base. It doesn't look heavy at all, the colors are amazing and it is really easy to work with. Definitely worth the price!

Did you try any product from Anastasia Beverly Hills?
