Review | Nude By Nature Contour & Highlight Collection

22 August 2016

Nowadays contour and highlight are a must when it comes to our make up routines and something I find myself researching and investing in more. So, when the access all Asos team invited me for breakfast at their Nude by Nature event how could I even say no!? I was lucky to have picked up these goodies at the event earlier in July to review and see what I thought of the new range, and boy did they give me a load of beautiful things to try!

I hadn't heard of Nude by Nature before it popped up in the 'New in' section on ASOS earlier in June, but their simple and gold packaging did catch my eye. The brand itself is all about 'beauty that's good for you' and is all mineral based made with ingredients such as Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, and native Australian Kakadu Plum, known for being full of vitamin C.

The collection features three stick highlight sticks, a highlight palette and a contour palette which are all BEE YOU TEE FULL! I didn't even know mineral highlighter was a thing but one thing I will definitely let you know is that the one I tried by Nude by nature did not disappoint. The highlight palette was very natural and blendable and even though it doesn't 'pop' like a lot of the ones I am used to wearing, they are buildable which if I'm being honest is meant to be the purpose of them. 

The contour palette however, did make me look a little muddy, possibly because the shades clashed with my skintone a little, so maybe the brand will consider more shades for different skin tones in the future. In terms of texture and application, the powders do glide and blend well, it was just a shame the shades didn't suit me well. Whilst I think contour kits are great I feel like they don't usually work for me shade wise, or they will have shades I won't use.

My favourite products were the highlight sticks which are cream to powder based and glide on like satin! I can wear them alone or under the powder highlight if I want more of a pop. If the whole highlight and contour concept is your thing then you gotta try these!

Nude by Nature is available now in the UK on ASOS

Have any of the collection caught your eye? What would you like to try the most?
