Over the last few years the world has become obsessed with contouring, most definitely no makeup fad this is one trend that is here to stay, and for myself and I'm sure also many others has become a firm part of my makeup routine. I love a bit of contouring it can make such a difference and i just feel it can make you look much more polished and helps bring all your makeup together.
I don't go crazy on a daily basis i use either my Laguna bronzer or Anastasia Beverly hills powder contour palette to define my cheekbones however if i'm going on a night out i might go slightly more dramatic. For a long time i had fancied trying to contour with a cream product, i was tempted to buy the new Anastasia cream kit but i've heard pretty mixed reviews and it seemed like an expensive purchase to possibly end up not liking. I did a little research online for a cheaper alternative, found this NYX  palette and i thought it was worth a try.
The NYX Conceal Correct Contour palette is a combination of six cream shades to conceal spots, correct discoloration and contour and highlight. Available in three shades i picked up the lightest shade which looked like it would best suit my skin-tone. The light palette has neutral, pink undertone and  yellow undertone creams perfect for concealing, a taupe cream for contouring and yellow and salmon corrector creams.
I like to apply my foundation then use a bit of the salmon colour to correct under my eyes before adding some of the yellow cream on top to highlight the under-eye area. I use the contour shade to define my cheekbones, down the sides of my nose around the top of my forehead. The creams are quite thick however blend out well, i then set them with a powder on top to keep in place.
The taupe colour is the best contour shade i've found so far its just the right sort of cool tone that looks really natural and like a shadow would look.
A few things i don't like about the palette is the size of the creams themselves, i find it hard to get my contour brush in and as the consistency is quite thick you do need to work the brush in a bit to get enough product. I also have found you really need to set your under-eye area well to stop the cream creasing.
I do like the NYX Cream palette but am i in love with it? no, i think it could be improved but when i want a more dramatic contoured look this is what i would reach for and at £16 its a great palette for anyone that wants to try a cream contour kit without forking out too much money.

Have you tried the NYX Conceal Correct Contour palette?
