NYX Cosmetics Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

INTRODUCTION:

Since it released, I have been dying to get my hands on this palette. With the contour craze going on these days, one can never have enough contour products! This palette features 8 powders for highlighting and contouring purposes.

DESCRIPTION:

The packaging of the palette is crisp plastic which is quite susceptible to scratches.Β It is pretty easy to handle and carry despite being a tad bit on the larger side.

The 8 powders are in removable pans of large size, which are easily popped out to replace / interchange. This feature is specially helpful for makeup artists who use the palette regularly and run of product pretty soon.

FORMULA:

The powders are easily blend-able, buttery and pretty smooth. The texture is quite velvety / matte and give a nice finish.Β Although I found 2 of them were a little grainy and course in the pan upon initial usage!

The pigmentation is of really good quality for a drugstore brand, one of the best actually so far. This palette is considered a dupe for the Shade + Light Contour palette by Kat Von D with 2 extra shades. But I feel like every other dupe, it is just a little bit less in quality than the Kat Von D one.

USAGE:

These powders can be worn over anything from BB creams to foundations to even bare face. They are pretty versatile and photograph well either way.

SWATCHES:

SKIN TYPE:

This palette is suitable for lighter to medium skin tones. The deeper skin tones would have some issues for contouring shades being too light for them!

RATING:

4.5/5

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I would definitely recommend! It is one of the most affordable contouring product in the market with such superior quality.
