Let’s talk NYX Cosmetics Contour & Highlight Pro Palette. I received this amazing palette from one of my blogging friends – Sarah (Coffee & Glitter) for my birthday. I was so grateful and amazed when I saw this in my mail. I have been eyeing this palette for so long and I finally got it. Thanks Sarah.
I don’t own any other contouring and highlight palette (shame on me! Working on it ladies) but what I do know is that I’ve been using this palette since I’ve received it and I’m seriously impressed.
There’s 8 shades in the palette. First row are the highlight colors.
H= Highlight // C= Contour
H1 – ICE QUEEN
H2 – SOFT LIGHT
H3 – CREAM
H4 – NECTAR
C1 – TAN
C2 – TOFFEE
C3 – SCULPT
C4 – HOLLOW
How do I use this?
For setting under eyes I use the Cream shade. Which is like a banana shade sort of like the Ben Nye Banana Powder. Love using this shade.
For contouring I use the Toffee shade. I’m a little tan so I have to use something a little darker to contour my face.
Highlighting I use the Ice Queen. Super shimmery and bright.
My opinion on this palette?
I’m very happy with how this palette is. I feel like for it being a drugstore brand it’s definitely worth spending the $24.99 at Ulta. The best thing about this palette is that the pots are replaceable. They only cost $5 online.
I still would purchase the Anastasia Beverly Hills & Kat Von D palettes but if you’re on a budget right now especially with the holidays around the corner this palette will benefit you.
