Product:
This cream stick formula is a dense and dry to not too dry texture that buffs out on the skin with a brush sponge or fingers to add dimension to the face. I dod notice that the highlight shade did apply a bit patchy in a one stroke but I had no problem with blending it out.

Colour:
Light/Medium `
Highlight is a pale off white yellow ivory with a matte finish.
Contour is a cool pink base taupe brown with a matte finish.

Wear: For about 10 hours before noticing any fading.

Packaging: Is a basic lipstick  twist up tube.

Daylight Swatches: NYX Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour in Light/Medium (heavy and buffed out).
Flash Swatches: NYX Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour in Light/Medium (heavy and buffed out).

Verdict
I do really like the finish of these cream stick on the skin. Unfortunately this Light/Medium which is the lightest shade in the range is still too dark overall to work with my skin tone. The highlight matches my skin tone as I blend it in and the contour is just to warm for me. ;)
