The packaging is not overly luxurious, but is expected at such an affordable price. The compact itself is fairly bulky, comes with a good sized mirror and has two separate compartments - one for highlight, and another for contour. The kit comes in two shade choices, light/medium and medium/dark.
As I mentioned, there are two compartments within the compact and the first I'm going to touch upon is the highlighter. As you can see from the photo below, the highlighter has an almost champagne tone to it, however once the top layer has been worn away the powder becomes less champagne and more silver (you can see swatches below!) which surprisingly, I loved! I tend to apply this to the high points of the cheekbones, above the brow bone, the cupids bow and to the nose and think that this would be a perfect product to achieve the latest beauty craze - strobing!
The bronzer like the highlighter comes in it's own compartment and should have a similar finish but mine shattered as it came through the post box so had to do a little 'diy' to save it! (A post coming on that soon!) After a few days of trying to save the shattered powder, I finally got around to trying it out. I used a Real Techniques Blush brush to apply this over the areas that the light would naturally hit and found that although this bronzer is the perfect shade for me and my pale skin, it needed building up a fair bit in order to achieve even a subtle bronze.

Overall, I think that this product makes a good addition to the drugstore, making it even easier (and affordable) to give contouring a go! Although I found the bronzer needed a few layers in order to really see the product on the skin, I think that it's worth paying the mere £5 just for the highlighter, which is just beautiful!
