Today I am going to review Sugar’s new contour palettes. These are their first face palettes, and they are called “Contour De Force Face Palette.” They come in two variants: 01 Subtle Summit and 02 Vivid Victory. Each of these palettes contains a blush, a highlighter, and a bronzer. Both the palettes are different only in terms of shades. These blushes, highlighters, and bronzers are also sold individually as minis. You can pick them incase palettes are not your choice. Let’s see in detail about the palette “01 Subtle Summit” and an overview of other palette and minis.

My Experience with Sugar Cosmetics Contour De Force Face Palette 01 Subtle Summit
Packaging: This face palette comes in a sleek, lightweight cardboard packaging with a flip cap. The packaging comes in a blue and purple color combination with a classy abstract art of a woman. It contains a big mirror but no applicator. The thin outer sliding cover is full black with just the brand’s cutout symbol and name. However, the backside of the outer cover contains all the necessary information, including the ingredients list. As all their individual minis have similar packaging, it could be difficult to pick if you have more than one of them. The packaging is sturdy and handy with a magnetic closure, making it travel friendly.
Shade: “01 Subtle Summit” is a subtle-themed face palette containing one soft, cool shade each of highlighter, bronzer, and blush. Left to right: “Taupe Topper,” which is a cool-toned brown bronzer; “Champagne Champion,” which is a champagne gold highlighter; and “Peach Peak,” which is a soft peach pink blush. All three shades are carefully picked to create a moderate look. They are perfect to keep things simple yet fabulous.
Let us look at an overview of other face palette and minis.

Texture: The texture of this face palette is silky soft. All three come as finely milled powders. They are super pigmented. They are infinitely smooth and incredibly easy to blend. They are so lightweight and have absolutely no fallouts. The blush and bronzer give a velvety matte finish.
Performance: As the name suggests, this face palette is truly a subtle-themed one. The shades and finish they give are quite natural and subtle. Bronzer: It is a cool-toned brown bronzer with grey undertones. It is why it suits even darker skin tones. If you are somewhere until around MAC NC42, you could achieve even high-defined contour look with this shade. I am MAC NC45, and this shade gives me only a natural contour look. Although I would love this shade to be more pigmented, I am glad that this at least showed up on my skin tone. Highlighter: It is a beautiful true champagne gold highlighter and suits every skin tone. It is super soft and blends like a dream without any patchiness. It immediately brightens up any look. It is more intense than the blush and bronzer, thus a light hand is needed while applying it. It does not contain any chunky glittery particles and thus add a natural glow to the face. Blush: It is a soft peach pink blush. I like subtle blushes, and this has to be my favorite. Although it is so pigmented, it transfers so subtly onto the face, which I absolutely love. It gives a fresh and natural look. The color is buildable according to one’s preference. All three shades are smooth as butter and glide on like a dream. They blend effortlessly without loss of color payoff and last for hours without flaking or caking. There are absolutely no fallouts. They feel soft and lightweight when applied. Most importantly, they are free from parabens, D5, oil, silicon, mineral oil, and nano-ingredients. Overall, it is a cool palette for everyday subtle looks.
