Sneak Peek: NEW Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

As promised, in my Nyx post earlier today about the new lip colors and brow pencils, I mentioned that if I heard about any other new products on the horizon I would let you know. And guess what?

NEW Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

Many thanks to Laura of Mrslolalynn on YouTube for this one! Laura kindly shared this pic of the new Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette and, unlike the new Nyx cream contour palettes already availble at Ulta, this is a POWDER palette. 

I don't know if there are additional palettes with other shades, and I don't know the price on this just yet. I also don't know when it will be available at Ulta or on the Nyx site (but I'm guessing very soon). As soon as I hear something, you'll be the first to know! In the meantime, I'd love to hear your thoughts about this one. I'm sure that Laura will be posting a video about this palette soon, so be sure to check out her channel for updates.

Thanks again, Laura, for the sneak-peek!


  1. Oh my goodness, I cannot WAIT to read reviews on this!! Been eyeing the Anastasia one but holding out bc of the price. Exciting news!

  2. This is so exciting! I've heard so much about the Anastasia contour palette and was thinking about getting the Aesthetica cosmetics contour palette for cheap on Hautelook but this could be an even better alternative!

  3. The NYX rep on Reddit (on MakeupAddiction) said that the palette would be customizable! So maybe the palette and the shades will be sold separately so that you can pick your shades!

    1. Based on the photo above it certainly does look like Itll be customizable! There's those little wells where you can shove your finger to PPP out each pan (most visible on the bottom row second shade from the right)! Great detail!:)

  4. This is definitely going to be the year of contouring ;-)

  5. I'm so excited for these new releases! I've already spotted a few things that I'd like to try. Along with this palette. I just hope it comes in different variations. I saw the swatches of this palette on Instagram and it looks like it may be too pale for deeper complexions. Hopefully we get more info and swatches soon

  6. Hi G! Just checked the nyx website and they are available now!

  7. Nyx confirmed that a re-formulated version of the "Taupe" blush is included in the palette. I believe it might be the second to last on the bottom row!

  8. Purchased mine online today, so glad you did a post on this cuz I wanted the ABH palette but would purchase this over that any day!
