MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Face Palette in 20 - Light, box & Ingredients!
Product:
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Face Palette in 20 - Light has 4 products in a wax-based cream formula that I found dried down and set on its own after blending it out. You definitely have time to blend this product out under 30 minites but it's compltly budge prroof on bare skin. This is the wax doing it's job. Pigmentationa wise it can be applied full coverage but I found it easier to blend out than most full coverage cream very naturally with little effort.

I would call this formula a slighter version of Illamasqua Cream Pigments.

Colour:
Highlight is a pale off porcelain pink with a matte finish.
Contour is a light taupe brown that leans slightly pink with a matte finish.
Shimmer is a light pale gold shimmer in a clear base.
Color is a bright coral-orange with a matte finish

Wear: Lasy 16+ hours on bare skin without a need for touching up.

Packaging: This is a plastic palette with a clear lid. The pans are housed in a foam tray which I WISH was plastic as well because cream products are not susceptible to shattering while dropped and a plastic tray is easier to clean. ;)

Product:
The Maybelline FaceStudio Master Contour & Highlight V-Shape Duo Stick in Light has 24 products in a cream formula that I found needed to be set with a powder to last longer on the skin and to make it smudge proof. I found this blended as andy traditional cream theatrical/pro product on the skin and blend out beautifully! The pigmentation was also perfection. ;)

Colour:
Highlight is a pale off cream yellow with a matte finish.
Contour is a light taupe brown with a matte finish.

Wear: Both shades lastest 12 our without touch-up on bare skin. Last longer under of over foundation and with a setting powder.

Packaging: Is a simple twist up crayon style packaging with a clear lid. The product seems evenly split down the middle.

Compared to the MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Face Palette in 20 - Light Contour, the Maybelline V-Shape Duo Stick in Light Contour is a light taupe brown that leans slightly pink with a matte finish is touch slightly warmer/orange in comparison.

Shade wise both are ridiculously close. ;)
