NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

Contour and highlighting  have been in season lately. They have always been popular, but lately the hype is on another level. Companies come up with their own contour & highlighting palettes. I use matte bronzer for contouring and a highlighter to highlight. I finally join in the wagon and tried the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro palette. Relatively cheaper than the high-end products out there for $24.50 retail price. I got mine with the $3.50 off coupon at Ulta. 

The palette comes with 4 highlight shades and 4 contour shades. Two of the highlight shades in the middle are relatively matte, The other two on the ends have shimmer but they're not at all glittery. I use the yellow tone (the third one from the left) as setting powder on highlighting concealer around the upper part of the apples of my cheeks, kinda create a little triangle. I then use the shimmery one on top of the apples of my cheeks after blush. 

Three of the contour shades are matte, and one has a hint of sheen. It's nothing shimmery, which works out great and not muddy. What I do usually is mixing the two contour shades in the middle, which creates a perfect shade for my skin. 

I think the palette really offers quite a range of shades that would suite different skin tones. The palette is a great quality product, and I would totally recommend it to anyone who's looking to try one!
