Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette

May 3, 2016

Discovering new makeup products is always exciting, but discovering practical makeup products is what really makes me feel like a kid in a candy store.

Rimmel’s Kate Moss range of sculpting palettes are precisely the type of products I’m talking about. With the added bonus of being a drugstore brand, I’ve been loving the quality and of course the convenience of this palette.

Rimmel x Kate Moss Sculpting Palette – #003 Golden Bronze

Rimmel Sculpting Palette features the perfect trio of Highlight – Contour – Blush powders. They come in 3 different shades but I picked up Golden Bronze – which is the darkest; as the colors were closer to what I personally prefer.

Note: I photographed two of my favorite Sigma brushes with this palette. They are F35 Tapered Highlighter (on the right) and F64 Soft Blend Concealer. Even though F64 is designed as a concealer brush, the perfectly tapered point and the density of both these brushes are perfect to use with contour and highlight powders like this sculpting palette. You can purchase Sigma brushes HERE

In terms of quality and innovation, Rimmel is definitely on top of the list when it comes to drugstore brands. This palette is no different. Being a powder base, the color payoff throughout all 3 colors is consistent, they blend beautifully and the staying power is also really impressive.

Highlight is a stunning champagne color which is soft and shimmery; definitely no chunky glitter or sparkles here. In fact, the color reminds me so much of my all time favorite Becca Opal.

Contour color is matte which is what true contour colors should be. It’s such a perfect blend of cool and warm brown that it doesn’t turn ashy on the skin but it’s also not too orange. This balance makes it a great everyday contour color, yet it can be built up for added intensity if need be.

Blush is stunning! to say the least. It’s actually a close dupe to NARS’s cult favorite Orgasm blush. It’s a gorgeous peach with a soft golden shimmer so even if you don’t use the highlighter, this blush will create the perfect glow with just enough dimension.

Prices starting at $6.15 (depending on the drugstore), these sculpting palettes are an absolute steal. If you travel often like I do, or you’re after an affordable good quality palette to take care of all your contour/highlight/blush needs at a few swipes, then grab this palette as soon as you see it. Here are the other shades available:

Hi Tiana, I’m glad you like your new palette. I went back and forth between Coral Glow and Golden Bronze cos they both had the undertones I usually go for. I’m still thinking I might get the Coral Glow too. The blush in that one is really pretty. Enjoy!! xx

Nice! I love little palettes like these they have everything in the one compact. I think Maybelline has similar palettes too now. Thanks for the swatches!

Hi Natalie. Yes Maybelline launched very similar trios but I haven’t had a chance to check them out yet. I’m not sure how the quality or colors will compare so I’ll do an update post if I pick up any of the Maybelline ones :)
