NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

When Kim K. started to contour her face I was obsessed with it. I don’t do it as dramatic as she does, but a bit of highlighting and shaping never hurt no one. 
As you can see in this beauty haul I picked up the perfect palette to create a contoured face: the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette. I already own many face shaping kits, but this one gives me the Anastasia Beverly Hills vibes and you must know that's on top of my wish list.

In this kit you will find four highlight shades and four contouring shades. From left to right:
01 - Ice Queen (shimmer)
02 - Soft Light (matte)
03 - Cream (matte)
04 - Nectar (light shimmer)
05 - Tan
06 - Toffee
07 - Sculpt
08 - Hollow

It's basically everything you need for a contoured face in one kit. You can bronze the face with 'Tan' and also give the cheeks a bit more definition with 'Sculpt' and 'Hollow'. The highlighting powders don't do much for me, probably because I am too pale, but they are nice to set the under eye concealer with. 'Ice Queen' on the other hand has lots of shimmers in it and does show up quite well on the skin. It gives a lovely glow to the face and I have to contain myself to not dust it all over my face.

The contour powders are very pigmented so I always make sure that I get rid of the excess on the back of my hand. They feel quite creamy and not drying at all. Sometimes matte powders can give a drying feeling but you don't have to worry about that with these. My personal favourite contour shade is 'Sculpt', it is a bit more cool toned than the others and gives me the best shape. I love to use it with my Zoeva Luxe Face Definer brush aka the best contour brush ever! It goes right in the hollow of my cheeks and leaves a perfectly blended contour.

Overall, I think this is a really nice product. The formula is lovely and you get a big variety of colours. The price (€25,30 via ASOS) is also decent for a product like this. Do I still want the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit? Yes, but that's just because I can never own enough contour palettes!

What is your favourite contour product?
