My experience withSUGAR Contour De Force Face Palettes
Packaging – Oh I just love the elegant matte purple packaging! The palettes come in a very attractive sleek cardboard packaging with a magnetized flip lid further wrapped in a black glossy outer cover. It has a huge built-in mirror inside the lid, which is a great advantage for on the spot application. Needless to say, the magnetic closure is strong enough to keep the product secured and intact. Further, the name of the palette is motioned on the flip lid whereas all other necessary information is mentioned on the backside of the outer cover. These are trio palettes that contain a bronzer, highlighter, and a blush. Their individual packs are also available with the same packaging but sadly without a mirror. Overall, the packaging is excellent! Quite sturdy, compact and travel-friendly.
Shades and Swatches
The SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette comes in two striking options:
01 SUBTLE SUMMIT
This subtle-themed face palette contains one soft, cool shade each of highlighter, bronzer, and blush.
(L to R): Taupe Topper (Cool-toned Brown Bronzer), Champagne Champion (Champagne Gold Highlighter) and Peach Peak (Soft Peach Pink Blush)
The Bronzer, 01 Taupe Topper – it’s a cool-toned brown bronzer with a gray undertone, which makes it a perfect bronzer for all skin tones. I have a medium tan skin tone(NC42) and It contours my under chin area and nose pretty well. It’s definitely a great pick for high-defined contour look as well as for a natural contour look.
The Highlighter, 01 Champagne Champion – Wow! What a gorgeous highlighter! It’s champagne Gold Highlighter, which is going to suit all skin tones beautifully!! It immediately brightens up a dull face and gives a fresh and dewy look. Since it’s a very intense highlighter thus there is a chance to get overboard with it so always keep a light hand while applying it. Just a tiny amount of this highlighter gives a natural and healthy glow to the face. In short, it gives you that reflective illuminated look in just one go.
The Blush, 01 Peach Peak – This palette has a universally flattering soft peach pink blush, which gives a very healthy but natural flush. It’s a lighter shade but even though the blush is suitable for all skin tones. It’s a perfect blush for a subtle and daytime look which looks absolutely radiant and fresh on cheeks. The color is effortlessly buildable as well.
Below is the look that I created using the SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette – 01 Subtle Summit:
02 VIVID VICTORY
This vibrant-themed face palette contains one bold shade each of highlighter, bronzer, and blush.
(L to R): Woody Wonder (Warm Brown Bronzer), Gold Glory (Golden Bronze Highlighter) and Pink Pinnacle (Deep Rose Blush)
The bronzer, 02 Woody Wonder – This is a warm brown bronzer that wonderfully works to contour my face. It blends effortlessly and gives a perfect sun-kissed look without the fake bake look! Even the tiniest amount is enough to warm the skin and add an instant bronzed glow. This is a perfect bronzer for all skin tones.
The Highlighter, 02 Gold Glory – It’s a beautiful golden bronze highlighter that gives you a natural, sunkissed glow! Since it’s a warm golden bronzy color and that’s what makes is so perfect for (warm undertones) the medium to dark skin. It looks on your skin as if you have been kissed by the sun. The more you build this on the more glamorous you will look! Definitely, it’s great highlighter for evening looks.
The Blusher, 02 Pink Pinnacle – What a prettiest deep rose blush! I have been craving for such a deep rose blush for sooo long and I am so glad that Sugar has finally fulfilled my wish! Trust me, I have never tried such a bold and beautiful blush till now! It gives my medium tan skin (NC42) such a pretty and vivid flush of pink. You can definitely make a natural look to dramatic look easily with it. The blush is so perfect for medium to deep skin undoubtedly! Fair skin beauties need to keep a light hand while applying this.
Below is the look that I created using the SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette – 02 Vivid Victory:
Texture, Formula and pigmentation:
Each of the 6 shades in the both SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palettes has excellent shading. These are extremely pigmented, just a touch of a brush is all you need.
These blend effortlessly on the skin without flaking or caking. These shades have a lightweight powdery and very soft texture that glides easily on the skin without any patchiness. The blushes and bronzers have a lovely velvety matte finish. Every shade is super silky to the touch and blends like a dream. Since these have a velvet formulation hence glide on very smoothly.
The bronzer, highlighter, and blusher they all have a great staying power. These do stay on the face for about 7+ hours without much fading and no patchiness in between!! However, highlighters fade a little bit but then I don’t mind reapplying it with my fingers. I have used both the palettes during the day as well as at nighttime and they work amazingly well for both.
Pros of SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palettes:
- What a beautiful sleek packaging!
- Available in 2 compact trio palettes as well as an individual mini.
- The palettes come with a large mirror.
- Extremely pigmented.

Cons of SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette:
- I wish, the individual mini packs had a mirror attached to the lid too.
The moment I saw them, I was beyond excited to try them out. Both the palettes are seriously gorgeous!! These palettes are very compact products that work for 3 purposes. As the highlighting and contouring have become regular steps in your makeup routine and these SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palettes have everything you need to get the job done.
If you ask my favorite shades among 6 then I would choose my bronzer and highlighter from 01 SUBTLE SUMMIT contour palette i.e. Taupe Topper (Cool-toned Brown Bronzer), Champagne Champion (Champagne Gold Highlighter) respectively and the blush in the shade of Pink Pinnacle from 02 VIVID VICTORY. Overall If you want to keep a moderate look, simple yet magnificent then go for SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette in 01 SUBTLE SUMMIT or if you want to create an intense look then SUGAR Contour De Force Face Palette in 02 VIVID VICTORY is here to glam you up. The best part is that each of the powder is also available as an individual packaging so that you can easily select your favourites as per your mood and taste!
