NYX Highlight and Contour Palette – A MUST have!

posted in: Makeup | 4

The NYX Highlight and Contour Palette is a must have for every makeup bag. I I am totally in love with it!

Since buying the NYX Highlight and Contour Palette I’ve been using it every day and honestly, I’m hooked! It comes with 6 colours which are all removable so that you can replace a colour if you want to or if you finish a colour you can refill it. Personally I love all the colours it came with- it has a range to fit every skin colour.

The palette comes with 4 different shades for contouring and 4 different shades for highlighting. What I love about this palette is that it can be used for an everyday look and an evening look. There is one shimmery colour for highlighting which is perfect for a dressier look. The contour colours are all different shades of brown which can be used for a more dramatic look or more of an everyday look. Basically, perfect for every occasion!



Surprisingly the palette is of really high quality, there is barely any fall out when swiping the brush and the colours blend really easily on to the skin. The colours are also very pigmented and it’s easy to create that flawless look with it. 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, when you use a good primer before applying your makeup, it will stay on longer and better!

The packaging is really nice too. Its classy and feels like high quality. It is slightly on the bulky side but it kind of has to be to fit in 6 big colours.

Do I recommend it?

This is one impressive palette! It is really easy to use so its perfect for a beginner who new to highlighting and contouring. Its also perfect for experts! The NYX highlight an contour palette has received quite a few negative reviews. Don’t be put off by these reviews, this is a great palette and like most products by NYX it does not disappoint. It’s in the range of the high end contour palettes- actually its probably better! I highly recommend it:)

You can buy the NYX Highlight and Contour Palette here for $22.50 or here for £18.00

    I used to contour my face; but I have gotten away from that as I get older; except I use my blush in certain ways for contour.

    This does look very interesting. It really does contain quite an array of colors that look like they would work for anyone or any occasion.

    I must admit that I don’t like to spend a lot of time on my makeup anymore. I do like to use coverup for my dark circles. Do you have any suggestions? I also use eye makeup and blusher.

      It is a great palette however, if you don’t like to spend a lot of time on your makeup this is a step that can be skipped.

      I have been through a ton of concealers to cover my circles as they are also dark. I have finally found the perfect one- its the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer. It covers my circles AMAZINGLY! And the price is so affordable. You can buy it here

      Good luck:)

    Great Post! This palette looks really great. Unfortunately I am allergic to the common make up and have to ask what kind of ingredients were used. Can you maybe tell me more about it? Either way it looks great to buy it as a gift for a friend who loves to have the latest trend in her purse.

      If you are allergic to the common makeup ingredients I wouldn’t recommend getting this for yourself. I looked into the ingredients and like most makeup some of the ingredients are questionable. But like you say it can make a great gift:)
