As you can probably guess from all of our NYX posts and features on our instagram L and I are totally in love with the products!
I’m a massive fan of a great contour so when we were at the counter the other day I couldn’t resist a new sculpting powder as it looked a great tone and as I’m yet to own any cream/liquid contour I had to have the sculpt and highlight duo.
I was instantly draw to the Highlight and Sculpt pro singles. I already have palettes I can put singles into so wasn’t worried about buying the full palette. My only downside is that it didn’t have a magnetised back for palettes but it’s easy enough to stick one onto the back. As it also has a lid it’s not necessary to keep it in a palette.
I choose the shade sculpt as it had a slight taupe shade to it and wasn’t as brown toned as some of the others. The texture of these is so soft and blends into the skin so easily. I find myself reaching for this most days now as it’s so easy to use. I’ve also layered it up with other contours for a stronger look for evenings.
Here is the contour shade on. If you’re following my 100 days of make up on instagram you’ll have seen it on more posts/
It’s available from boots here for the bargain price of £3.25. They also do a palette of highlight and contour shades which is £18 for 8 shades
Here is the face duo swatched first and the contour powder in sculpt at the end!
I’ve fancied trying a liquid contour and highlight for a while and when I saw the Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo it fell into my basket without question. It was the last one on the stand in Taupe/Ivory which made me want it more.
It comes in a concealer wand type packaging with the doe foot applicator making it really easily to apply in a specific area and makes contouring precise and easy especially on the nose area.
The sculpt and highlight due really blend into the skin easy and give a flawless finish. I blend it out with a real techniques miracle complexion sponge (my favourite sponge I grabbed the primark ones hoping for a bargain but they just don’t cut it!) to gently blend the product out. I find this works best.
Here it is on. You can see it shapes my nose and cheek bones and adds definition to the face.
It’s available from boots here for £9 and comes in different shades for different skin tones. I’m really pale and this one is perfect for me.
NYX is also all cruelty free hence why I’m heading there and buying out most of the shop at the moment!
