Maybelline Master Contour Palette

Hi :)
I was super excited to get my hands on one of the Maybelline Master Contour palettes. I saw them a while ago on Instagram, but then wasn't going to pick one up but then decided to when I saw them in the drugstore. I'm indecisive, I know. But I'm so glad I did pick one up because (spoiler alert) this thing is freaking amazing. And this coming from someone who is rarely impressed by drugstore bronzers and blushes. 

I think this is about $12.99, which is the price I'm seeing when I google this online. I can't remember how much I paid for it at Walgreens. 

The Maybelline Master Contour palettes come with a bronzer, blush, and highlight. They come in two different shade ranges- light to medium and medium to deep. The one I picked up is for medium to deep skin tones. The reason I chose that one is because this one is warm toned and warmed toned bronzers tend to work better for my skin than the cool toned ashy ones. The one for light to medium also has a cooler toned blush.

The palette also comes with a little brush. At first I was going to toss this because it's obviously not big enough for the bronzer or blush. I tried it for highlighting and it worked out pretty well for that!

My Thoughts
-I already mentioned that I really like this palette. The bronzer and blush are both nice shades, and the highlight is gorgoues. 
-The blush and bronzer both blend out nicely. The color pay off is nice and the blush isn't overly pigmented so you don't end up with crazy clown cheeks. 
-The bronzer is a tiny bit orange, but since it blends out so well it's manageable. 
-The blush reminds me a lot of Nars deep throat, which is slightly more peach toned that Nars Orgasm blush. 
-The highlight gives a beautiful glow without being too shimmery. 

The blush and highlight in the light to medium palette were very pretty as well, and it makes me want to pick up that one too since I really like this palette. I'd be curious to try the bronzer in that one, even though I have better luck with warm toned bronzers.
