NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

If it’s your second palette, it must be that good right? I’m referring to the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette. It contains four highlighting powders and four contour powders. Each of the shades can be purchased individually and the palette is refillable! Really convenient since there are always 1-2 shades in a palette that you hit pan on first.imageimageNYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette’s eight shades range from light to deep, with varying undertones. I initially was drawn to this palette for the sole reason that it had a yellow tone highlighting powder. The majority of contour palettes I own have peach highlighting powders, so I was excited to find a palette that was a one stop for highlighting, contouring and setting.imageimageThe majority of the shades are matte/satin-finish but two of the highlighting powders have shimmer. Products that have a satin finish look exactly like skinimageUpon swatching each of the shades, you can feel that product is finely milled and buttery smooth. It clings to the skin with little to no fallout. You have to see for yourself how well it blends. image Starting from the top Left moving to the Right:

Highlight Powders:

Ice Queen is a pearly white, one out of the two shimmery highlight shades. It’s frosted finish is absolutely gorgeous. Adding a touch of this to my inner eye, brightens the eye area very nicely.image

Soft Light is a light, off-white/beige shade that doesn’t really have a distinct undertone. It has a matte finish and can be used to “bake” or set cream products.image

Cream is a pale yellow shade, with matte/satin finish. This paired with my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is beyond perfect, since they both have yellow undertones.image

Nectar is a pearly soft peach shade with frosted shimmer. Champagne highlighters are beautiful when creating warmer looks. Definitely my favourite out of the two shimmer highlights in this palette.image

Contour Powders:

Tan is a matte soft brown shade with warm red undertones. It has opaque pigmentation and blends with ease.image

Toffee is also a matte brown but it has a yellow undertone with a satin finish. This contour shade was the most apparent in terms of it’s satin finish, where the others are much more flat.image

Sculpt is a light brown/taupe shade. Definitely a cooler shade that is perfect to sculpt your face with. It has a satin sheen to it which prevents it from looking dry and powdery on the skin.image

Hollow is the darkest brown from the contour shades. It has deep warm tones with excellent pigmentation.imageimageimageFrom the swatches you can see the wide selection of shades this palette contains. Although I sculpt my face with a cool tone brown, I blend and warm up my face with a warm brown shade like I would with a bronzer. I am able to highlight/set cream highlight with different shades from this palette. It also has neutral shades that you can apply to “bake”. Not to forget how GORGEOUS they look when worn as eye shadows. For these reasons, I LOVE the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette and hence why I am on my second palette. imageThe NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette can be purchased from NYX Stores, Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall and many other retailers.

I would love to know your thoughts on the palette! 🙂

      Yes! The browns are perfect crease colours and the highlight is perfect for practically everything. 🙂
