The Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Dupe (For Less Than Half The Price!)

Hello everyone!

Makeup, especially high end products, can be an expensive thing. It feels absolutely brilliant when you can find a drugstore dupe for a high end product, and this is especially true when the dupe works just as well as the original. Today I am going to be sharing with you an amazing dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Light/Medium Contour Kit; all for less than half the price!

I actually wasn't looking for a dupe for the ABH Contour Kit when I first purchased this off the Superdrug website, I just wanted to try out some Nip + Fab products, but I was certainly pleased when I realised they were both very similar products.

It is very clear from the get go that the packaging of the palettes aren't identical whatsoever, but it is definitely what's on the inside which counts the most!

The Anastasia Beverly Hills palette comes in at a pricey £42. One thing I really like about the ABH palette is that you can buy the refill pans separately for £ each, so when you run out of your favourite shade you can always replace it. The Nip + Fab is a lot cheaper, costing only £15. I know that £15 isn't the cheapest for a contour palette, but the quality is VERY similar to ABH and in my opinion it's totally worth it:)

One thing I find very interesting is how you actually get more product in the Nip + Fab palette than you do in the ABH one. The pans in the Nip + Fab palette are noticeably bigger than those in the ABH palette, but the size of the palettes are exactly the same. I definitely feel like Anastasia Beverly Hills could have increased the size of their pans to fill the palette a bit more, but I know that this would also cause the price to increase too.

Now, onto the shades! The three top shades in the Nip + Fab palette are absolutely identical to the ABH palette. The bottom shades are also identical to each other, however they are in a slightly different order. I have put together a little diagram to show which shades are the same so that you can see the comparison.

I am now going to do a quick summary of the pros and cons of both palettes, and then you can decide which one you prefer!
