Hello my dreamcatchers! This has been on my drawer for quite a long time na and it has been my forever favorite contour palette since I got this one. I'm so happy that I never tried ordering the first one because I knew that I won't be able to use that since the contour powder was a bit dark and thankfully they launched their 2nd palette which has a more muted and subtle colors.
What? City Color Contour Effects 2
Net Wt. 3 x 0.159 oz. / 3 x 4.5 g

The Contour Effects 2 Palette was created to offer an even more cool-toned option to contouring lovers, from beginners to professionals, and those of us who change our contouring style with our mood! The muted hues of the contour create a natural-looking shadow while the subtle bronzer gives all-over warmth. Add a glowing radiance and lift your cheekbones with the shimmer highlight, which features a more natural tone for everyday wear.

Contouring and highlighting depends on your face shape. a We all have different techniques on application. One tip I should tell you is know your face shape. Well, obviously, I have a rounded face that's why I usually apply contour powder on the side of my face, temples and a bit on my forehead(since my forehead is wide)and also I apply on the jaw line area and on my double chin. haha! While, I place the highlight on the high points of my face then the bronzer or blush not on the apples of my cheeks but on the side or between the contour and highlight.

Overall, I super love this product. Obviously, sa intro pa lang. The contour has a perfect muted brown color that creates a perfect shadow on the face. Sometimes, I also used the bronzer for contouring since it's also matte like the contour powder. While the highlighter has a lovely shimmer, very subtle.
I love that the powder doesn't have a lot of fall outs nor too powdery.And ofcourse, I love how it slimmed down my face even just a bit. haha!
