If our #KKW Beauty review didn’t inspire you to go out and buy, and you still don’t want to spend the Kim K buck$, we’ve rounded up a few great dupes for you. Stay contoured my friends.


NYX Wonder Stick

(NYX Cosmetics)

This is a double-sided stick with one side of contour and the other highlight. It’s truly all you need. And to compare prices- $11.99 vs. $48.. Need I say more?


Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick

I am a huge fan of this product. This stick is a cream to powder with the perfect bronzer/contour color. Yes, it is one sided, and there it no highlight, but there are so many good ones out there that you don’t need to get a duo product if the contour stick is as good as this one! One of my favorites is the cream to powder Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter.

We can’t put it down! 😍Double tap if you’re loving our #hoola quickie contour stick! @hannah_schroder #benefit

Nudestix Sculpting Pencil

Nudestix is a low-key brand compared to the others I’ve shared, but don’t let that fool you! These dual-ended sculpting pencils are super creamy with beneficial ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E to keep the skin soft and moisturized. My favorite part about these pencils is they come to the sharpest point than any of the others I’ve shared, including the KKW kit. This will really help you go contour crazy anywhere and get that definition on your nose, eyes, or any other tricky areas.

SO, you got the products, let them do the werrrk. And if you choose to hit up the restock for KKW, get in line before North takes em all. Happy contouring queens!

When #North steals your contour palette 😩😩😩😩😩 omg
