My Favourite contour kit

Hi girls, sorry about the lack of posts recently! I'm back today with a post dedicated to my favourite drug-store contour palette. Contouring is one of my favourite make-up trends at the moment, I am obsessed with it. I love what contouring does and what difference it makes! I am always on the look out for new contour kits, but this one from Seventeen is one I always go back to. This is my second purchase of this contour kit as my other one has nearly ran out!
The one which I have been loving recently is the Seventeen "Define & Conquer contour kit". This compact palette comes with two powders. The packaging is small and compact and is the perfect size for carrying around in your handbag on an everyday basis. This kit also includes a decent sized mirror which is always a bonus. The dark powder contours and the white highlighter illuminates. The contour shade is very pigmented and can easily be blended. I really like how this doesn't look muddy on the face, it gives a really natural look which can be built up. The illuminating powder is very natural, its matte so no there is no shimmer, for a night out I would definitely add a more shimmery highlighter but for everyday this shade is perfect.
This kit also comes with a little step to step guide on how to contour which is great for beginners! When  applying the contour shade I like to do a silly fish face by sucking in my cheeks and applying the darker powder in the hollows of my cheek bones. I also apply this down each side of my nose and along my hair line. Then I apply the highlighting powder to the centre of my forehead, down the centre of my nose and also on my chin. The brush I use to do all this is the contour brush from Real Techniques.
This contour kit is a great drug-store product. Its available at Boots for £5.99, I'd recommend anyone to try it. Once you contour for the first time, I can guarantee you'll carry on doing it!

What other contour kits do you think I should try?
