Product Review: Rimmel London's Kate Sculpting Palette

by Valerie N. 

Hi everyone! Rimmel London recently released their very first sculpting and highlighting kit designed by the one and only Kate Moss. I was roaming around the makeup aisles at Target awhile ago when I saw this contour kit on sale. Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer is one of my absolute favorites so naturally, I had to give this sculpting palette a try. It’s available in three different shades – golden sands, coral glow, and golden bronze. I got the kit in the shade “coral glow” and if you want to find out more about this product, keep reading!

According to Rimmel’s website, the Kate Sculpting Palette is “Rimmel’s first sculpting & highlighting kit designed by Kate Moss.” First, you use the “shading powder to contour the sides of the nose, jawline, and forehead.” Then use the “powder blush for contour and definition.” Lastly, you use the “soft shimmer powder to highlight the cheekbone, brow bone, center of the chin, and bridge of the nose.”

After Contouring

 

The lighting isn’t the best and I was having a bad skin day (due to PMS) but I hope you can see the slight difference. My cheekbones are a little more defined and have some color to them. But trust me, it’s more noticeable in better lighting and in real life!

Pros

  • $6.49 plus tax at Target
  • soft and velvety texture
  • good pigmentation
  • different shades to choose from
  • 3-in-1 kit – you get bronzer, blush, and highlighter without having to buy them separately!
  • subtle but still noticeable
  • easy to blend
  • perfect for everyday wear
  • back of the kit shows you how and where to contour/highlight

Cons

  • kit does not include a mirror (which would be nice but isn’t a deal breaker for me)
  • highlighter isn’t as noticeable as others

Final Verdict

Honestly, there aren’t too many cons about this sculpting kit. Overall, I’m very satisfied with this affordable drugstore contouring palette. It has a nice feel, it’s lightweight, and it does the job well. If you’re a beginner looking for a contour kit to start with, definitely give the Kate Sculpting Palette a try! And if you liked this post, stick around. Maybe I’ll teach you how to contour/highlight next time!
