NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

Last year saw the craze of highlighting and contouring, which frankly have been around for ages but for some reason people went absolutely crazy for it in 2015. On a day-to-day basis I do some light highlighting and contouring to add some dimension to my face but nothing too glowy or chiseled. Actually, it’s more of a bronzing up than a contouring.

There have been loads of highlight and contour palettes that have come out in the past year alone. Seriously, so many to choose from at all different price points! Since I only seriously highlight and contour it up for nights out or special occasions, I decided to go with a middle of the road (price-wise) palette instead of something a little more expensive such as the popular Anastasia Beverly Hills one. Enter the NYX Highlight & Contour Palette.

The palette comes with eight pans with the top row being the highlighting powders and the bottom row the bronzers. The highlighters range from a shimmery white to a cream color. It also includes a more yellow/banana powder which would be perfect for setting under-eye concealer. The bronzers also range from cool to warm tones. Having a range of shades is fantastic so you can use the shade for whatever look you’re going for. Want to look extra glowy? Go with the white highlight. Want a deeper contoured look? Use the darker bronzer. Want to just warm up your complexion? Use the soft brown. So many options!

I’ve only been using this palette for a short time, but so far so good. I love the versatility. I know the newer thing now is cream bronzers which I haven’t tried yet but I’m still dipping my toe into the cream blush world so that may take me a while to get to!
