As soon as something, one little thing becomes all the rage its shoved down our throats and you can’t escape it! Every video I see on Instagram is a contour tutorial. Every profile pic is a perfectly primed contoured queen! Every place I shop contour palettes gleam back at me. You get where I’m going with this, contouring has unequivocally taken over & I’m left over here looking like a pile of shit because I need to get on it!! Cue the NYX wonder stick.
When I’m faced with so much choice I crumble! I just can’t cope with the variety, I don’t know where to start or even how to work my way through all my choices. I often stand in one spot drifting into a daze, my mind completely blank, seconds if not minutes have passed & still I haven’t moved an inch! How could I possibly know where to start with the ample amount of choices that are contour palettes? Do I use cream or powder? Dark or medium? What brand? What the fuck am I looking for? They all look the same!! HELP!!
When I spied the NYX wonder stick I knew it was the simple option to my contour palette nightmare! On one end you have a shimmery cream highlight and on the other you have a brown cream contour, simple right!? Its just the perfect size to fit into your purse too! NYX give you 4 shades to choose from but with me not having used a cream contour before I was worried about going too dark, in that case I opted for the universal shade; not too dark not too light! The wonder stick is super easy to apply since its just like holding a pen and the application is really smooth. I find that both creams blend in really well & just like everyone else these days I use a beauty blender to do this; they really do give the best results #sorrynotsorry!
Having tried the universal colour I’m regretting now not getting a darker shade but with them being so cheap and affordable its a really easy regret to fix (unlike most things in life). I always tend to go over my contour with a bronzer (find out what bronzer I use here), though If I’d originally gone with a darker shade I know that I wouldn’t have to rely on my bronzer quite as heavily, for now I enjoy using both.
This year I was thinking about making little beauty and life hampers for my family and friends, that way I can give them a little bit of everything I love. I think these would make a great addition, now I can’t wait for Christmas!! Although actually I can because I’m not really looking forward to spending so much money. *sigh*
