Hola beautiful IMBBians!!!
This post is about a product which is fairly recent by NYX and is said to be a dupe of MAC conceal, correct and contour palette. Some bloggers call it a dupe some don’t, I personally agree with the latter. I had higher expectations from this but it didn’t live up to them.

Color-match your skin using our perfecting and correcting palettes to conceal correct or contour With six shades to choose from in each set you can cover up problem spots even out imperfections and accentuate your best features in a flash. Use these buildable colors on their own or combine them to create the ideal tone.
My Take on NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette:
Very few of us are blessed with a clear, even toned skin. For the rest of us it is a constant struggle to get a flawless, smooth skin by using minimal products and just a foundation is not good enough since it makes us look ashey so we need something to cancel out the darkness and then apply foundation. This product comes handy in such cases.
Packaging: Product is available in three shades for light, medium and dark skin tones. I chose the dark shade since most colors were a match for my skin (camouflaging and highlighting). Each palette has six shades in rectangular slots and has a clear cover top. Palette has sturdy packaging and is not prone to breakage.
Left column shade from top to bottom:
Shade 1: brown with pink undertones and is a perfect concealer for fair skin tones
Shade 2: just like the shade above except it has yellow undertones and can be used to brighten up under eye area of people with yellow undertones like me
Right column shade from top to bottom:
Shade 1: Dark brown with more of orange is suitable for darker skin tone beauties.
Shade 2: Chocolate brown which can be concealer for few but for me it is a contouring shade and can be used to accentuate my cheek bones.
Shade 3: Bright, dense orange – shade I use to hide my under eye circles and darkness around my mouth.
Conclusion: The shades are versatile and can be used for various purposes – as the name of the palette suggests. Also it is good dupe of MAC concealer palette, however, it is not easy to use as its higher end nemesis is because the colors are not as creamy as required and are a little tough to blend. But the upside is since they are not so creamy, they don’t crease so easily or transfer but blending them is a tough job and hurts my skin a bit.
Of all the shades I use the orange shade to cover the darkness and a lighter concealer to brighten up the hollows of my eyes. The product is good but not amazing and yes beginners can buy it to learn all about concealing and contouring but more experienced ones can shy away from it.
Pros of NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette:
• Sturdy plastic packaging.
• Shade range is for medium to darker skin tone.
• Ideally priced for quality and quantity.
• Colors can be used for concealing and contouring.
• No odor.
• Stays for at least 8 to 10 hours.

Cons of NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette:
• Not as creamy and is difficult to blend.
• Case gets a little messy.
Would I Repurchase NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette?
No, because it will last me for a long time and also because I don’t think it’s a great product. Readers should buy it only if they are new with the concept of concealing and so on but otherwise refrain from buying it.
