AC On Tour Australis Contouring and Highlighting Kit - Review, Photos & Swatches

Here's yet another product that I definitely did not need (ummm, I have a tonne of contour/highlight products) but I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it on @australiscosmetics Instagram account. It is of course the Australis Contouring and Highlighting Kit. I think this is one of those products that will sellout quickly (just like those much loved Velourlips lip products), so if you're interested definitely start stalking your local Priceline now!

The kit comes with 3 highlight shades and 3 contour shades.

1 x matte highlight shade with pink undertone
1 x matte highlight shade with yellow undertone
1x shimmery highlight with golden undertones

1 x - matte contour shade, mid-brown
1 x - matte contour shade, milk chocolate
1 x - matte reddish brown contour shade

All the colours are incredibly wearable, and I especially love that the kit includes a shimmery shade for traditional highlighting of the cheekbones.

I must admit I picked this up without even swatching it in store, and I really didn't have high expectations. I expected something a bit powdery and maybe lacking in pigmentation but oh how wrong I was. Here's some swatches for you so you can see what I'm on about.

The only way this palette could have been made better is if there was a mirror under the lid, but that's just me being pedantic.

If you love contouring and highlighting, or if you just want to get started on it then definitely give this one a go. It's $16.95 and you can get it either from the Australis website or wherever Australis is sold.

What do you think of this palette? Must have or not?


  1. I need to get my hands on this! I've seen it everywhere & it looks amazing for the price :) x

    1. It's definitely better than I expected it to be! You need it! xx

  2. I think I may need this in my life :)

  3. Ohhh I have a post coming up on this later this week too! They are sold out everywhere! I snagged the last one at Bondi Junction's Priceline, and have been trying to hunt one down all over the city all week for my pole teacher. Have put in an order for when the next shipment arrives!

    1. I noticed the smaller Pricelines still had them, but the ones in larger shopping centres, i.e. the popular ones were all sold out! It's fantastic though isn't it? Hope you like it :)

  4. This looks stunning, the pigmentation is great too.

    1. Oh it's better than I excepted it, the pigmentation is amazing! xx

  5. Everyone has been talking about this! I have a feeling it will sell out VERY quickly. I really need to get my hands on it! The pigmentation and quality sounds impressive.

  6. I swatched this last week and it's AMAZING. I wouldn't hesitate to get it if I didn't already have a whole drawer full of bronzer and highlighter. The inclusion of the matte highlights and nice variation between the contour shades is so much more than Australis/budget standard!

  7. This has been getting so much airplay in the blogger world! I love your swatches! Currently overseas but a lovely friend of mine picked me up one to try...can't wait to play!
