Since buying the NYX Highlight and Contour Palette, I’ve been using it every day and honestly, I’m hooked! Contouring is a really easy way to get natural-looking defined cheekbones.

It comes with 6 shades- 4 contour ones and 4 highlight ones. They are all removable, once you finish a shade you can simply replace it. Personally, I love all the colours it comes with- it has a range to fit every skin colour.
This palette can be used for an everyday look and an evening one. There is one shimmery colour for highlighting which is perfect for a dressier look. The other highlight shades can be used to lighten wherever necessary.
The contour colours are all different shades of brown. Want a dramatic look, choose dark brown and for a subtle look choose one of the lighter shades. Basically, there’s a shade for every occasion!
The most important feature for me is that the shades aren’t too orange, and neither too brown. I have very pale skin with neutral undertones so it’s a fine balance.
While not all of the shades in this palette work perfectly for my skin tone, one of the shades is spot on! It suits my skin perfectly and gives me a natural-looking chiselled cheekbone look.
The palette is really high quality and there is barely any fallout. On top of that, the colours blend really easily and smoothly onto the skin. They are highly pigmented making it easy to create a flawless look with them.
What I do recommend is using a good skin primer before applying your makeup so that it stays on better. This really goes for any makeup that you apply.
The packaging is nice and simple. Whilst it’s slightly on the bulky side, it does fit 6 full-sized shades, so it’s not something to complain about!
This is one impressive and relatively affordable palette! It is really easy to use so it’s perfect for beginners who are new to highlighting and contouring.
That being said, professionals will also love this contour palette! It’s easy to use, looks fab on the skin and lasts really well too! The NYX Highlight and Contour Palette has a vegan formula and is cruelty-free.
