Contouring has definitely taken the make up world by storm. Even though contouring is out and “strobing” is in, I still love a good bronzing and contour palette. These palettes were hard to come by. Even though I have the Smashbox palette, I am absolutely loving the NYX contour palette. Not only are there EIGHT colors, I feel like it is a great dupe for both the Smashbox ‘Step By Step’ Contour Kit and the popular ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Contour Kit.
I like the banana-colored powder for the under-eye area and the ashy brown below it is a perfect contour shade. The yellow neutralizes the purple-ness of bags under my eyes (they’re Prada, btw) and the ashy brown makes a perfect shadow shade.
I think my favorite part about this palette is that it is a drugstore product, even though you can basically only get it at Ulta or their website. Speaking of Ulta, I used my points for it and it cost a whopping $6 (down from $25). Y’all know I love a good steal!
