NYX Face Duo Review


NYX is one of my go to beauty brands-and a major weakness for my wallet. Anytime I run into Ulta I have to see what new products NYX has out and then since I am such an impulse shopper, I buy them. One of my favorite bloggers and blogger besties, Melissa from Primp and Prime Beauty did a whole review on her thoughts/feelings on the NYX Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo and with most of the products she recommends, I knew I had to have it! 

You can see Melissa's review here

My Likes:
-the price point! 
as with all NYX products, the prices just can't be beat. at only $12 this is a serious steal. 
-the formula of the highlighter. 
it is so smooth and creamy. it doesn't have a shimmer in it but has a great glow-y payoff. 
-the amount needed. 
a little bit certainly goes a long way. below I have a picture after I applied the product but before it was blended out. I had to remove a bit of the highlighter as I put way too much on initially. 
-the applicator
I am obsessed with doe foot applicators. 

My Dislikes: 
-the formula of the contour. 
this could have totally been user error but, I felt like the contour formula did not blend out well. I had to really blend, blend, blend then I sprayed a little fix+ on my brush to help blend even more. however, once blended, it was great!

other than the small dislike-which may not even be a real dislike, I am in love with the duo and it will definitely be a daily reach for!
