Fashion 21 vs. Nichido Contour Palette

Last few days Fashion 21 cosmetics released a contour palette with two contour shades and one highlighter. I was so excited because last March I asked the counter in one of their stores in a SM branch if they are have contour palette. The saleslady said Fashion 21 will come up with one soon.

The lighter brown shade has a pinkish tone. I think this is good for people with fair skin or maputi. All colors have shimmer particles that are quite big. I thought they released a matte one. There is actually the highlighter swatch at the right side of the darkest shade. The highlighter is powdery and its shimmer doesn't stick on the skin or isn't obvious enough. Maybe you can use the highlighter as an eyeshadow instead.

If you take a picture using a smartphone you cannot see the shimmer but in real life there is shimmer. I didn't take a close up picture. I was actually in the mall to look for the foundations because of the sale.

Beside Fashion 21 stall is the Nichido stall so I went there and compared the two.



The difference is that the lightest shade of the Fashion 21 contour palette is darker than the lightest shade of Nichido palette. The darkest shade of the Fashion 21 contour palette is darker than the darkest shade of Nichido palette. Nichido's shade in the middle is more of yellow tone.

When I tried to rub the swatches of Fashion 21 and Nichido, Fashion 21 contour swatches isn't affected that much or the color didn't get too much lighter. Nichido contour palette is also powdery but has smaller shimmer particles than that of Fashion 21.

For the price of P300+ I think both palettes are affordable since the size is quite big and not like an eyeshadow pot size.
