Not Much PurposeI have light-medium, oily skin, and have owned this product in the color Defining Nudes for about 8 months. Even in the nude color, the "contour" shade is very pink, almost red - far too warm toned for contouring. The light highlighter shade is useless; it too has a rosy pink color, and is really just an opaque white-ish powder with tiny flecks of glitter. Yuck. The blush shade is okay, although you would have to be very pale for it to actually do anything. To get any pigment on my own skin, I have to layer it on, and because of the sparkle in it, my cheeks just end up looking like disco balls. I will occasionally mix the blush and contour shades together for a powder blush when I go on with powder too soon and therefore can't use my go-to cream blush, but other than that I rarely use this palette. The texture itself is actually quite nice; very silky and smooth, but the colors and the pigmentation just didn't work for me. Especially taking into account the price, I will not be repurchasing.

Clinique blushThis is a nice and natural blush that gives you a little bit of colour to your face without overdoing it.
