NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

nyx1*Purchased by me

The NYX Highlight & Contour palette wasn’t really something that was on my radar in the makeup world. I knew about it, but I didn’t think it was something I needed, especially since I do not contour or sculpt my face at all. I do love a good bronzer to warm up my skin though, and I adore highlighting. When Ulta had their 40% off NYX promo and a coupon on top of that, I decided to try it out of curiosity.


The palette contains 8 shades for highlighting and contouring, plus the pans are removable and can be replaced when you finish one. There are 12 single shades available for purchase. Individually, the pans are $5, making this palette quite affordable at $25 retail.

I was really impressed by the quality of this palette! Each shade is very soft and blends nicely; it feels of higher quality than the price reflects. The shades are also long lasting.


What I love about this palette is that I can use it to do my entire makeup look. I use the second to last swatch above as a blush, and I can use the other shades for eyeshadow, and of course for highlighting and bronzing. The banana powder (3rd swatch) is great for brightening, and I love the 4th shade as a highlight.

The best part about this palette is that it just makes makeup application so EASY because everything is in one place. It has certainly earned a place in my daily makeup stash and might even be an HG item for me! This is a palette not to be overlooked, especially in a sea of more expensive contour and highlighting palettes.

    Great, now I may have to go buy this too, lol. I’ve been wanting the Becca shimmering skin perfector for a while now too. Dang it Melissa. 😂
