Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Cream Highlight and Contour Palette:

I like the shade ranges of this product, its one of the few where the contour shade will actually show up on my skin tone so I purchased the palette in the shade 'Deep'. I mostly used the contour shade, the lighter shade fit my skin tone so it didn't really brighten my under eye area like its designed to do. I didn't touch the highlight shade because unlike every other makeup lover right now, I'm not a huge fan of cream highlighter or any highlighter for that matter. My biggest issue with it was that its a cream contour and I have oily skin so I thought I'd just set it with some contour powder. As I was applying the powder, the cream product slipped around on my face as if the powder was erasing the cream. I used a thin, flat foundation brush to apply it and there's a chance that it could've affected my results. Maybe it was the brand of powder I used to set the contour (it wasn't a NYX brand) I'm not sure. Overall its an ok product, I'd still recommend people try it especially those with deeper skin tones because its one of the few drugstore contour palettes that come in shades dark enough. I just need to experiment more with it.

        It's ok. For the price, it works but it's just not great. I will definitely have to spend more to get what I'm looking for.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Cream Highlight and Contour Palette:

          This palette is NOT creamy at all. It was very hard to get the product to get on my small flat brush that I use to contour my nose so I cannot even imagine trying to use a bigger brush to do the rest of my face. Even when I pushed my finger into it, it's just so stiff. Not blendable unless you wanna rub your skin like crazy. I bought the ELF cream contour palette and it's cheaper and creamy/blendable. I would recommend you bet the ELF one instead of this. I love NYX, but this palette is a fail.

                Product is very very dry. Not creamy at all. It actually tore up my brush just trying to get it to stick to it. I would not recommend this at all

                      They just aren't good products. It's hard to get a sizable portion of the product out of the container and then it's just super heavy and sticky. I tried using all three of the shades but you can hardly tell they're on once you put them somewhere. Overall, regret buying.
