In Detail NYX Highlight và Contour Pro Palette Review, Swatches & My Experience
As I mentioned earlier contouring & highlighting can be done with either powders, liquids or creams. If you are an oily skinned beauty you can resort lớn using powders và if you have dry skin cream or liquid products will be ideal for you. The normal skinned girls out there can use any according to lớn their convenience. Cream products give a more natural finish but are quite difficult to lớn blend without disturbing the base if you are not experienced. Powders can sometimes look a little artificial but can be blended well và if used in the right quantity & method can give you a natural, beautiful look. Powders will be easy for you lớn start with if you are a beginner to lớn contouring và highlighting.
How khổng lồ Choose the right Contour & Highlight Shade
The next step is to lớn find the right shade of contour và highlight for your skin tone. A contour product should be two to three shades darker than your foundation shade & the highlight hàng hóa must be two to lớn three shades lighter than your foundation shade. A lot of you might be confused about what the difference between bronzer và contour is. Bronzer is usually lighter than a contour product and is used lớn warm up your face as opposed khổng lồ chiselling it as in contouring.
A lot of people apply a bronzer along with the contour product. Just choose a warm toned shade lighter than your contour shade as a Bronzer.it will instantly warm up your face và give it a sun kissed glow. The next difference is the formula. Bronzers usually impart a luminous finish to lớn skin but contour products are matte in nature. Now coming to the highlighter, they can be shimmery ones và matte ones. Shimmery highlighters impart a glow to your face while matte ones brighten it up.
So, the shade selection is done và let’s come to the most important part, where to apply the contouring and highlighting products. So basically you have to highlight the high points of your face lượt thích the bridge of the nose, cheeks, under eyes, forehead and chin area, and contour along the shadows. You can use contouring và highlighting to lớn define your nose, make your jawline sharper, give the impression of not having a double chin và a thinner forehead.it all depend on what you are trying to achieve.
The palette has a transparent cover & does not come with a mirror. The pans are quite big & refillable. Yes! they can be removed when finished and filled with a new pan. This is quite convenient because we often kết thúc up finishing two or three shades faster than the other shades in a palette. So it is uneconomical to purchase a new one for the finished shades. The pans in this palette are replaceable và solves this issue. You can refill your favourite shades when they get used up. The pans can be removed quite easily. This is something that makes this palette chất lượng when compared to lớn other contour palettes in the drugstore range.
The shades are super creamy and pigmented. None of them are chalky and blend really well. The downside is that there is quite a bit of fallout so tap the brush after picking up sản phẩm so that the excess will fall off. A little goes a long way and there is no need for layering it to lớn obtain the desirable colour. They have just the right amount of pigment which makes it easy for beginners to lớn apply it. I love how they look on my skin. It gives such a natural finish even without setting spray. You can apply these with fluffy brushes as they blend the powder quite well. Make sure the brushes are not too big as it can make the contour less precise và give a muddy appearance khổng lồ the face.
Ice queen: this is an icy shimmery highlighter.it can be used on the nose và cheek bones lớn impart a glow to lớn your face. I use this as a brow bone highlighter too. This shade looks subtle on the first application và can be layered to get a beaming glow for parties or a night out. They vày not look patchy on layering. However, this does not look good on textured skin & as I have quite a bit of texture, I don’t prefer using this on my cheeks. The shimmer is finely milled và looks beautiful on fair to medium skin tones.
Soft light: it is a peachy highlighter shade which is meant for fair lớn medium skin tones. Due lớn its peachy undertone it brightens up the under-eye area and brightens it up.it is too fair for my medium skin and makes the dark circles grey. I vị not see myself using this shade a lot unless it is to đứng đầu a concealer khổng lồ achieve a bright look for parties.
Cream: this is a banana powder which can be used to lớn highlight medium to lớn dark yellowish skin tones. I use this as an everyday highlighter for under eyes và forehead.it looks subtle and is perfect for a day time look.it makes me under eyes look flawless and airbrushed while brightening up.
Nectar: it is a peachy shade with warm undertones.it is translucent and imparts a subtle glow from within.it is not shimmery lượt thích ice queen but has a soft sheen lớn it.
Toffee: it is a neutral to lớn warm brown shade which can be used for medium skin tones. I lượt thích this shade a lot and use it as a bronzer when I want khổng lồ warm my face up quite a bit and also as a contour by mixing it with sculpt
Sculpt: it is cool toned brown which looks extremely ashy on me when used alone.it is perfect for cool toned skin & warm toned skin tones can mix it with one of the warmer shades for a perfect contour shade. I set toffee and sculpt to lớn get my contour shade. This shade is perfect for fair skin tones with cool undertones
Hollow: it is a deep brown shade with reddish undertones & is perfect for dark skinned beauties. Fairer skin tones can use this as an eyeshadow or even eyebrow powder.it is the darkest shade in this palette và can be mixed with any of the other shades lớn use for medium khổng lồ tan skin tones for a deep contour.
How I Use the Palette
I usually moisturize my face and apply foundation & concealer. Then I mix my entire face with loose powder as my skin is extremely oily especially during summer. Next, I contour, highlight and bronze my face with this palette. I use tung as a bronzer and a mixture of toffee & sculpt as a contour powder. I use all highlighters especially cream. The most used one is cream & the least used one is soft light. For a tiệc nhỏ look I use ice queen and for subtle day time looks I use nectar or cream. I use the PAC contour brush và tapered highlighting brush in gentle strokes lớn slowly build up the intensity. Then I spray a makeup setting spray khổng lồ melt all the powders and get rid off the powdery look. This helps me achieve a flawless base.
These powders last for at least ten lớn twelve hours when mix with a setting spray & lasts for six hours maximum on me when I don’t use a setting spray. My skin is oily và the hàng hóa gets absorbed into my skin và fades away. If you have normal skin it will last more. None of the contour products last for more than this time period on my skin và I find this khổng lồ be long lasting. These can be easily removed with a water-based makeup remover & even the darkest shade does not stain my skin. My skin is extremely acne prone và this palette did not break me out which is a big pro.
Comparing this khổng lồ other drugstore contour palettes available in India, I think this palette is a steal at this price. The quantity is sufficient và the unique is vị trí cao nhất notch. This can easily be a substitute for high kết thúc palettes. This palette looks similar to lớn the makeup revolution lights and contour palette. The makeup revolution palette retails for 1750 rupees in india. It has just half the quantity this palette has and the price is almost same. The product formula is inferior compared to the Nyx one and is chalky và not pigmented. So this palette is the better option compared lớn the makeup revolution contour palettes. This is the best drugstore contour palette I have come across và I definitely recommend it to you guys

Cons of NYX Highlight & Contour Pro PaletteThe palette is quite big which makes me take other palettes while travellingThe highlighting shades are all quite light và deep skin tones may not find a match.There is quite a bit of fallout & it messes up the palette
MBF AdvisesSelect the contour và highlight shades according to your skin tone and undertone. Wrong choice can lead khổng lồ you looking lượt thích a disaster (speaking from experience?)Do not try khổng lồ build it up in one go. Use multiple strokes và slowly build it up.While contouring, vày not go overboard. Contouring is to lớn be localised và not to lớn be spread out, it will look muddy if u apply it all over like a blush và make u look dull and darker.Tap the brush lớn dust off the excess after picking up the product
