I really like this. I also like how you get 8 colors for only $24. I can use all 4 of the contour colors and sometimes mix them. I also like that you can buy the pans individually from nyx instead of buying an entirely new palette when you run out of a color. I really don't use any of the highlight shades, just the yellow one sometimes as undereye setting powder or to carve out between my cheekbone and jawline. The other colors usually just sit there but honestly I prefer to contour and look more bronze and have a shimmery highlight on the top of my cheekbones anyways.
Perfect for an everyday highlighter but you can build it up to a more glamorous finish! Colour is so beautiful- it's a natural shade but has these little gold sparkles in it which make the highlight pop even more. I would buy it again.
The foundation has a very creamy, emollient consistency and delivers full coverage readily. I very much advise applying a lot less than you think and blending, buffing, and working it across the planes of the face before adding more. The creaminess of the stick is felt immediately, and it seems to get creamier as it sits on the warm skin, which makes easy to spread across the skin. It is undeniably a full-coverage foundation, but the blendability of the foundation does make it possible to get coverage as sheer as light-medium coverage. At full coverage, it is still a lighter-weight foundation, though not as undetectable as a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer (not surprising), but it didn’t feel heavy or uncomfortable; I didn’t feel like I was wearing a mask of product, and the finish was natural enough that it looked more like my skin than anything else.
