Hello there you beautiful humans. I’m currently in Pjs, sipping my cup of tea while watching Harry Potter in the background (Prisoner or Azkaban … I thought I’d add). That was a totally random note but I thought I’d set the scene. In regards to this review, I’m talking about the lovely little nyx contour kit. A funny thing about contouring is I use to be OBSESSED with it – like any contour product I came across I’d snap up in a second and every time I wore makeup I’d contour. I’ve definitely embraced bronzing over contouring lately and I don’t have that same strong love for contouring as I once did. I now stick to the palettes I know work for me.
Okay, that was a tangent and a half! So let’s jump right into the review before I start yapping again.
Does it work for fair skin? There are definitely shades in there that are friendly for fair skin. I wouldn’t say this palette is a holy grail item for the pale peeps. I’m quite pale (not stark white) but I have to be careful when I contour and I still manage to successfully use this palette.
Is it blendable? Yes! The shades blend like a piece of cake, they’re super buttery and awesome for those of you (including me) who don’t have the best blending skills yet.
Is it easy to use? As mentioned above – it’s easy to blend nature makes it a piece of cake to use & apply!
Natural or full on? Unless you have a tan / deep skin tone – this contour palette won’t give you a natural look. It’s definitely for the days where you want a more chiselled/sculpted look to the face.
Does it last a good amount of time I’d say it lasts the standard amount of time a powdered contour would last on the skin. It doesn’t come with any crazy longevity but I don’t notice it wearing off too quickly.
Packaging: This palette comes in a plastic packaged casing – nothing special & doesn’t feel fancy BUT I love that it has a clear lid and you can see the products on the inside. You can also pop the products out. Not of their pan necessarily but the pan in a thin plastic case pops out.
Price: $39.95 AUD
Pros: The shades will give you a nice noticeable contour and that chiselled effect, the powders are super blendable and pigmented. You get 8 pans in the one palette.
Cons: It won’t be amazeballs for those with fair skin even though it still is workable on light skin tones.
Overall thoughts? This is a very nice contour palette. I’ll admit it’s not my favourite but its still works very nicely & gives a lovely contoured effect.
Would I repurchase it? No. As I have another contour kit that is my ultimate favourite.
And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried out this contour kit? What contour kits have you been loving? Be sure to drop a comment and tell me all about it. I hope you guys have an awesome day and I’ll see you in the next post!
