Product Purchased by IMBB
Hello beautiful ladies!
I have always been smitten with the concept of highlighting and contouring, and never miss a chance to get my hands on such products. I was lucky to get this product under the IMBB Sponsored Scheme. So today’s review will be on the NYX WS04 Universal Wonder Stick.
The contour stick is basically a two sided stick with a twist-and-up mechanism. It has a contour stick on one side and highlight stick on the other. Both have transparent caps that close with a click and are very steady. This stick is packaged in a cardboard box, and all the details regarding the stick are written across the carton.
Amplify your look with our all-purpose Wonder Stick that has a creamy finish that conceals highlights and contours with ease. The Wonder Stick is available in 4 different shade combinations to fit every skin tone including one universal shade.
My Experience with NYX Universal Wonder Stick WS04:
I wanted to lay my hands on this stick for a very long time now. I have seen so many bloggers using contour products which although look very simple to have and use, but actually are complicated. Also I noticed that cream products have better finish than powder ones, and have much more ease of use. While ordering this shade, I was not sure which shade to select, and to play safe I ordered the one which would go universally well with all skin tones.
This stick is a two sided one with one side having the contour stick and the other side having the highlight stick. The contour side of the stick is used to create shadows below the cheek bones, jawlines, hairline, sides of the nose, and the highlight stick to highlight the nose bridge, center of the forehead, chin, cheekbones. These sticks are like lipstick bullets which have a twist up mechanism. The texture of these bullets is very creamy and these glide with utmost ease on the skin. Since this one is like a pen style, it is very easy to draw lines across the skin. Even though the stick is creamy in nature, the bullets are strong and will not break due to pressure.
They are very easily blendable and can be blended using a sponge or just with fingers. The pigmentation of both the sticks is good. I cannot say the pigmentation is strong or light as I believe this stick is very good for beginners, and the pigmentation is just right to start learning and practicing. The contour stick has matte finish and there are absolutely no shimmers in it. This shade of the contour stick is very suitable for all skin tones and the pigmentation can be played around by using it light or layering and darkening it.
On the other side, the highlight stick is more of a silverish shade and has a bit of shiny finish. You can see in the bullet that it has this shiny kind of glaze to it. But upon application, the shiny glaze is not much evident. It has no shimmers. One has to be careful while using the highlighter as too much of it will leave one looking too white and unnatural. It feels very light on the skin too.
The staying power is good and the contouring and highlighting lasts for around 4-5 hours. One can increase the staying power by using setting it. These do not seem to be waterproof but at the same time they require makeup remover to get rid of completely. For picture purpose I have blended mildly but then one can play around it as one requires. This shade is very natural and a best tool for the beginners.
