Sculpt and Highlight with NYX Review

Sculpting and highlighting is going strong in the world of beauty, this trend does not seem to be disappearing anytime soon. Everything and anything is currently being sculpted cheekbones, eyebrows, legs, boobs, the list goes on.
So when I saw my local Boots had NYX finally in stock (YAY!) I picked up their Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo and Sculpt and Highlight brow contour to practice my Kim K skills.
Queue the pout.
So without further ado here's my thoughts on NYXs Face and sculpt products.




NYX Sculpt and Highlight



NYX Face Duo £9


So on either end of the product, you have your highlight/accent shade and your contour shade, The applicator is a easy doe foot one, so you can apply it directly onto the areas of your face your looking to contour and highlight.

Thumbs up so far.

The product itself is thick, there is no subtly in this at all, so if you enjoy a strong contoured look then this could be up your street. I already had on a full coverage foundation so applying this over the top of it did make me feel a bit cakey, for me personally this is a night out product when I want to look full on contoured.

This blended out easily with a damp beauty blender, though I will say work fairly quickly with it as it does set. Using a damp Beauty Blended did help to sheer the product out a bit, so I can only imagine that if you had the time and patience to blend this out with a brush it would look even more full on.
The finish to the skin is a natural glow, this is not a full on highlighted look, so it would be great for those that want to look sculpted and highlighted without looking full on glowy.

NYX Brow Contour £8

So again this is a double ended product, on one end you have your brow pencil and on the other is your brow contour. The brow pencil is a soft waxy formula that applies easily, due to this though it does mean you cant quite get defined hairs but its lovely for added some colour to your brows. The highlight end is ok, a little drying but thats just me nit picking really.
The colour is great, usually I find blonde eyebrow pencils have to much red in them but this is a great flat colour.

All in all I'm impressed with my first try of NYX!
What else do I need to try?

  3. Their lip products in general are pretty good, especially the Butter Gloss and the Soft Matte Lip Creme. Their HD finishing powder has great reputation, and their HD concealer has pretty impressive coverage (but the shade range sucks).
