NYX Highlight & Contour Palette Review | erisaxo


My thoughts on the new NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette! This mini review is coming from someone who’s not big into a strong contour – but curious to try what’s out there.

NEW PRICE: Looks like NYX dropped the price to $25! It was originally $30.

The NYX website also offers 25% off your first order, which is how I purchased it.

I don’t have the Anastasia Contour Kit, so I cannot compare the two. This is my first contour palette, and I’m enjoying it!

NOTE: When I said the NYX Powder Blush in Taupe is in the palette, I forgot to mention I believe it’s the NEW reformulated HD Blush in the shade Taupe, not the original formula. I may have heard incorrectly – let me know 😉

Leave a comment if you’d like to share what you think of this palette and other ones… including the Anastasia Contour Kit and the new one from Kat Von D! I’m curious!

Thank you for watching 🙂 Xo

    don't get the Anastasia palette! it's so freaking orange, disgustingly muddy, and streaky! i honestly don't get why people like it so much, but then again….the overdone orange contour is super "in" right now (for some strange reason).

    I have been lusting after the kevin aucoin, although the shade looks a lot like the sol del rio i bought from sephora this summer & the nyx taupe, the regular idk about the new taupe formulation, nyx poducts haven't disappointed me yet & are a great on the wallet. I'm also eyeing that kat von d contour pallet, the abh just hasn't caught my attention i don't know why 🙂

    This looks really interesting! I haven't purchased a contour palette as I'm quite fussy with contour shades. I've been eyeing up Smashbox's though but was waiting until I can get to a store that carries the brand to swatch first. I may have to wait until this launches in the UK instead. Thanks for reviewing it for us! Xx

    I work at sephora and I wasn't blown away by the ABH contour kit, but the Kat Von D shade & light palette? had to buy it the second I laid eyes on it! it's so perfect for so many skin tones and the lasting power is incredible. the powders are velvety soft too. you can build up a defined harsh contour or keep it light and simple too which I love. 🙂 I think if you wanted a high end contour palette you'd be happier with KVD. I may have to pick up this NYX one just because I'm a junkie and would love to try out a drugstore alternative for $25!

    This sounds like such a great little palette for the price! I kinda wish is was cream though! I loved your review and DEFINITELY might have to check this out!

    I am definitely "contour challenged", it intimidates me! I would love to find something similar to the Kevin Aucoin powder though, if anyone knows of one please share!!

    Apparently the Kat Von D Shade Light Palette is better than the ABH one so that's one to consider too. I was torn between the two of those but the sephora reviews sold me on the Kat palette.

    I have the ABH palette and I like it. But it didn't blow my mind when I used it the first time. Now it's growing on me..lol I so want to compare this one to the ABH one now..lol great review love! 🙂

    The nyx website has it for $25 now. I wonder if they're gonna sell the highlight and contour refills..
