Dior Backstage Contour Palette Review and Swatches

Did you know that the unicorn is the national animal of Scotland? In Celtic mythology, the unicorn was a symbol of purity, innocence, chivalry, and power. See you soon, moving to Scotland! Meanwhile, I have the Dior Backstage Contour Palette in 001 Universal for you today.

The Sephora website says, “The palette is a blendable contour palette to effortlessly sculpt, define the face with customized intensity. It is designed with two beige and bronze highlighting powders with shimmery pigments. The powders are easy to blend for a seamlessly natural, luminous effect. The palette contains two ultra-fine, matte powders that sculpt and define the face without leaving any harsh lines. Use these shades alone or together to customize your contoured look.”

Packaging Of The Dior Backstage Contour Palette

This palette comes housed in a clear acrylic case with the brand name DIOR written across the front in silver lettering. The packaging is minimal, and allows you to see the four shades. Additionally the two highlight powders are on the top, and two contour shades at the bottom.

Formula Of The Dior Backstage Contour Palette

The powders are so smooth, so velvety. I swatched each shade with my fingers for the post, and I have applied these powders with my brushes, over different bases, multiple times. Let me tell you, they blend like magic. Also all shades have the word ‘Dior’ embossed on them.

My Experience

This palette has two highlighting shades which are at the top, and two contour shades which are at the bottom. The highlighting beige and bronze shades are not glitter packed. Moreover they have a soft shimmer, which you can see if light hits you at the right angles.

The contour shades in the palette are very finely milled. And also very smooth and easy to blend. Most importantly, the shades are not too grey or orange on my medium skin tone. If you are medium skin toned like me, use the darkest shade with a light hand. I find that this is a fairly neutral palette that can be used during the day and night. This is a great palette to use for contouring and highlighting.

I have medium skin tone and wear Chanel 40 Beige Foundation. Some of my other color matches are NC37-40 in MAC depending on the formula. I also wear MAC NC30 in Studio Fix Tech Cream-To-Powder Foundation. Read my review here.
