NEW CoverGirl Tru Blend Contour Palettes at Walmart
(retail: $9.98 each)

Thanks so much to reader @makeupxbyh on Instagram for this one! She spotted the brand spankin' new CoverGirl Tru Blend Contour Palettes at her local Walmart this week and kindly shared the above pic. I enlarged/cropped her pic for a closer look:

As you can see. there are three palettes in this line: Light, Medium, and Dark. Each palette contains a highlight shade, a contour shade, and a bronze shade. These are creams, not powders.

UPDATE: Thanks to reader Rachel for the tip that the "Light" shade is now available HERE at (it's $12.99 there).

From the website:

With truBLEND's Contour Palette from COVERGIRL, contouring and face sculpting is now as easy as 1 TRU 3! The palette includes 3 creamy ultra-blendable formulas to highlight, contour and bronze, with 'How to’s' to help you put your truest face forward!

• Contour palette designed by celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath.
• Easily define and highlight your features.
• Blends like a $36 prestige contour stick
• From Before to After in no time!

Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyethylene, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Mica, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Phenyl Trimethicone, Nylon-12, Diisostearyl Malate, Ozokerite, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Silica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Propylene Carbonate, Zinc PCA, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate May Contain/Peut Contenir: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide

I didn't know that Pat McGrath designed these--I'm hopeful that the texture won't be like greasepaint. (Fingers crossed!) Also, thanks to readers Beauty Queen and Candice for confirming the price at Walmart ($9.98).

Have you spotted these new contour palettes in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, @makeupxbyh, for the great sighting and pic!


  1. They're already available on, although for a bit more money (and I think only the light shade right now).

    1. Thank you, Rachel! Will add to my post! xo

  2. I saw these at Walmart this past Saturday and bought one. I haven't used it yet but it cost $9.98

    1. Thanks so much for confirming the price! Will add to the post!

    2. You're most welcome. I love your blog. Glad I could finally help. 😊

  3. I saw these at my local walmart. I'm in MD. They were $9.99. I picked up the one labeled "d" I'm guessing for deep. I can provide swatch pics later! :)

    1. I thought the "D" stood for "deep" too, but I saw online that it's "dark" so that's why I put "dark" in my post. Would LOVE swatches at some point after you try it! Thank you so much for the offer! My email is nouveaucheap at gmail. :)

  4. Can someone point me to a good tutorial for using cream contouring? Or should someone with combination/oily skin even attempt it?

    1. Use your favorite foundation or concealer just in a lighter/darker shade. I prefer concealers in a doefoot applicator form, it's the easiest, blended out with a sponge. Just a dot to start.. little goes a long way.

  5. Covergirl's dark is never dark enough! Jesus! Would it hurt to make a contour for the average black skinned woman?

  6. Bought the one it light. It was horrible. Greasy and no pigmentation. I was so fed up with it I started scrubbing my finger in the pan and painting it on and still couldn't get any color. Returned.
