Australis- 'AC On Tour' Contouring and Highlighting Kit

Hi Lovelies
I finally was able to purchase the Australis 'AC On Tour' Contouring and Highlighting Kit thanks to the Farmers waiting list! Then a few weeks later was sent one!
These palettes have been so hard to find because they have been compared to ABH contour  kit as a cheaper dupe.
I'd like to compare Anastasia Beverly Hill Contour Kit when I can you know afford it...

I'd just posted a Brand Review on my blog about Australis

Everyone has a different face shape whether it an oblong, round, square, diamond, or heart, the ideal face shape is said to be an oval, so to achieve this face shape contouring and highlighting helps give that impression of an ideal face shape!
Highlighting- is too highlight and emphasize features on the face, where light would naturally hit the high point on your face for example- Centre of forehead, high points of cheek bones, brow bone bridge of the nose, tip of the chin, and cupids bow.
Contouring- is to minimize features and to create the impression of a shadow that recedes those features for example- Along the hair line, temples, under the cheek bones, side of your nose to make it appear thinner, under bottom lip, along the jaw line.

Top Row (Highlighters)
1- Matte Beige -for lighter skin tones this would be a good setting powder or a highlighter for tanned skin- Use a powder or blush brush
2- 'Banana' Yellow shadow good for highlighting under your eyes- Use a small tapered brush
3- Shimmer champagne- cheek bones, bridge of nose, chin, forehead. Use a fan brush or blush brush

Bottom Row (Contouring)
4- Matte chocolate shade to contour or use as a bronzer- use a bronzer brush
5- Grey brown (darkest) for under the cheek bones to create a shadow- use a 'ita' kabuki brush
6- Lightest brown- Chocolate shimmer shade a bit like your usual bronzer- use a bronzer brush
Theres instructions on the back of the palette on how to use each shade choosing one shade for highlighting and one shades for contouring, but it doesn't say what types of brushes too use. 
Hopefully my descriptions above will help if your new to contouring and highlighting and of course these are optional and you can use different brushes, remember to start with a small amount of product first and slowly build it up.
