NYX 3 Steps to Sculpt Face Sculpting Palette

I’m all about contour and highlighting products but I find that ‘high end’ contour palettes are really pricey!  With so many great options available at the drugstore, it is now really easy to find your perfect contouring palette for a very low price. My latest addition to my drugstore contour palettes is the NYX 3 steps to sculpt face sculpting palette!

NYX 3 Steps to Sculpt Face Sculpting Palette in the shade light

These palettes come in four different shades: fair,light,medium,deep. Today I will be reviewing the shade ‘light’.
If you have tried the Wet n wild contour palette before, than you will love this one too because these two palettes have a very similar formula.

The shade light has a bronzy champagne highlight, a banana setting powder and a warm medium brown contour. These colors work best for medium skintones; they have a soft but powdery formula that blends very easily into the skin.

The highlight has some tiny particles of bronzy shimmers that reflect the light beautifully on the skin. A little bit goes a long way with this shade and it is buildable so you can make it look natural or intense.

The banana powder works great for setting the under eye area or for carving the contour too. The contour shade is very warm and it blends effortlessly into the skin.

For $11.99, i think that this palette is a nice option and the packaging is great for travel too. The colors are all pigmented and they don’t look heavy on the skin. I wish they can make more shades too because there are not many options available for very light or very deep skintones. This shade is  labeled as ‘light’ but  it is more suitable for medium skintones and the shade ‘fair’ works best for light skintones.

Have you tried this palette? What is your favorite contour palette?

    Nyx has a wide range when it comes to everything but especially their contour products – there isn’t one contour type product they don’t make. I’m a fan of their powder contour kit – this one looks like a good one for on the go and to keep in your makeup bag.

    I have’t seen this in stores here but sounds interesting. Not sure how much use I get out of it though.
