NYX Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour Review



Who loves a brow pencil and a highlighter in one?
*Raises hand*
My favorite brow highlighter is from Benefit called High Brow.  I still use it, mostly for clients and scrimp for myself!  So I actually found an inexpensive alternative and I'm so happy it came with a brow pencil too!

NYX Sculpt & Highlight Brow Contour

A pencil with double-sided end.  One side is the brow "contour" while the other side is the highlight.  I got the shade Espresso/Light Beige which I believe is perfect for me!

NYX Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour Says ---


NYX Professional Makeup's sleek Sculpt & Highlight Brow Contour is a 2-in-1 pencil that define, fills, and uses shadow and light to lift the brows to perfection. Formulated with nourishing castor seed oil, this dynamic eyebrow pencil also helps the brow feel soft and smooth.

Pros

  • Dual-ended.  Very useful and perfect for travel.
  • Two-in-one product --- always a winner for me!
  • Wonderfully shaped, easy-to-apply even for first-timers.
  • There are a couple of shades included in this range, I am not sure how many shades we carry locally.
  • Espresso is perfect warm-toned brown that looks natural.
  • The Highlight shade Light Beige is a matte highlighter giving that extra oomph on your brows without looking fake.
  • Both products glide smoothly on brows and stays (for normal and dry skin).  Oily skin may see a bit of disappearing act on the edge of the brows.

Cons

  • The highlighter shade is a bit thicker so if you are monolid or you have small eyes, you may find this shape a bit big for you.
  • I missed the spoolie in brow pencils (Nothing huge, but I'm a big spoolie user).

Overall
A very easy-to-use brow pencil and highlighter pencil in one!  It looks extremely natural and is easy to work with.

Tips

  • If you have oily skin, best to pat the area with an oil-control loose powder to prevent the Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour from disappearing midday.
  • Best to apply the highlight product sparingly for a more natural effect.
  • Do not twist the pencil too high (especially for the brow pencil side) as it might break.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Brow product lovers!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local NYX counters in SM Beauty stores nationwide priced at Php650.00.

I like to fill in my brows with the Espresso colored pencil using short hair-like strokes.

Using the Highlight side, I draw the outline of my brows to create clean and highlighted brows.

Have you tried NYX Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour?
Do you prefer and brow pencil + Highlight pencil or a brow pencil + spoolie?

Given the chance, I'd go for all 3, but I'll pick pencil + Highlight combo because I can always use a separate spoolie.
