Sugar Cosmetics Contour De Force Face Palette - 02 Vivid Victory Review, Swatches, EOTD and FOTD

Hello my beautiful ladies,
As we all know, contouring and highlighting plays a major role in enhancing our features. These two artsy tricks of makeup can give you high cheekbones, chiseled jaw line that you have always dreamt of. Blush on the other hand, is necessary too. It adds warmth to your makeup and makes your skin look healthy. 

So, how about something that has the above mentioned products, all rolled up into one crazy package? Sounds intriguing, right?
Tan ta naaa… presenting the Vivid Victory Contour De Force Face Palette from the house of Sugar Cosmetics. The pallet is their newest launch. How can a brand have so many back to back new launches? I am totally awed!

Anyway, so without blabbering any further, lets get into the details…

What Sugar Cosmetics claims:-

INR 799

Chic and quirky, that’s what I think of the packaging. The fun purple toned, 3-pan pallet is sleek yet sturdy, compact and light-weighed and is easy to open and close by the magnetic mechanism built into the lid. Perfect for travel and also, the mirror inside helps you in quick touch-ups. This pallet further comes housed in a glossy black outer cover.

As the brand says, Vivid Victory is a vibrant-themed face palette contains one bold shade each of bronzer, highlighter and blush that can be used beautifully for a dramatic look.

Woody Wonder: This is a warm brown bronzer. It works beautifully as a contour shade, looks very natural, very apt for that alluring sun-kissed look. This would work on all skin tones.
Gold Glory: A super gorgeous golden bronze highlighter. This is a bomb and is one of the most beautiful highlighters in my kitty. Such a unique color. This would look amazing on medium-dusky skin toned beauties.
Pink Pinnacle: A beautiful deep rose blush. I am not a dark blush lover, but this has my heart. So, so beautiful and is gain another shade that will look stunning on deeper skin tones.

Both the bronzer and the blush have beautiful matte finish and the texture is super smooth. The highlighter is silky and the shimmers are finely milled and don’t move to the rest of your face. Basically, the texture of all the products in the pallet is super soft, smooth, feels light as air and blends like a dream. They are very well pigmented, especially the blush, you have to be very careful about the amount you are using, otherwise you might end up looking like a clown. They stay pretty long too, no wearing off or creasing.

Do your base. (Foundation, corrector, concealing and then setting with a powder). Then apply the bronzer under your cheekbones to sculpt and define. Use short brush strokes from the top of the cheekbone down towards the chin. Now for a rosy flush of colour on your cheeks, swirl your blush brush on the blush, tap excess and apply on the apples of the cheek. For the highlighter, I always love using fingertips. Fingertip application provides the highest coverage with the tiniest amount. If you want a sheer look, you can go for a fan brush. I apply it on my cheekbones, on my brow bones, down the bridge of nose and even on the inner corner of my eyes.

I have even used this pallet to do my eye makeup and the colors worked really well as eye shadows.

3 in 1: Three different products in 1 pallet. No need to carry a highlighter, a blush, a bronzer individually.
The shades:- My most favourite out of this trio is the highlighter, it is such an unique shade. Love the deep rose blush too, perfect to add a gorgeous flush of colour to the cheeks. And the bronzer, chiselled bone structure is no longer a dream.
Multi Use:- I can use the shades both as face products and as eye shadow.
Beautiful Texture: Soft and Smooth. The matte ones are non-chalky and the shimmery highlighter is non-gritty.
Intense:- They are beautifully pigmented and can be built up even more if required.
Staying power: They stay on my face for long enough to make me fall in love with them even more.
Compact:- Glides in my purse with ease; so easy to carry around.
Decently priced: - Bronzer, highlighter and a blush , 3 together at Rs. 799 isn’t bad.
Can be used anytime:- I love the fact that these can be used even during the day, just you have to keep the amount in check. 

The below picture is during the day and the other is at night. I have used the shades on face as well as on eyes.

Final Thoughts? Would I recommend this pallet to others?
I am pretty impressed with the pallet. In India, there is a dearth of good, affordable bronzer and highlighter and Sugar Cosmetics is the savoir.  This all-in-one trio, though is meant for dramatic looks, can be used during daytime as well, you just have to be light handed.
So if you are looking for bronzers, highlighters and blush and are on a budget, then you can surely give this trio a try, trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Time to get glamorous!
