To start with, I'm right now somewhere in between NC30-NC35/Lucy Minerals 50-50 Creamy Bisque-Golden Medium/MAC F&B C3/Tarte TM "Agent 010". However, after I got tanned to NC35-NC40 in summer, I switched to MAC Espresso. This, for me, is the PERFECT contouring colour for only under cheekbones, jaws, and temples. The color is yellowy-beige, which at first I thought is not cool enough to be a contouring color. It proved to be the one, giving me the muted contour that I like. With this on, my face looks contoured but very subtly. Most of my friends and my sisters don't realize I've done contouring until I told them, although they did notice something different. However, on me this does not work well for nose and crease contouring. I use more chocolate MAC Wedge to do the job. The product itself is lovely. I only need to tap my brush lightly on the surface. The product is not chalky and too powdery, very easy to blend. A little goes a long way. The surface does not harden as well from the moisture from my face that stuck on my brush like MAC's eyeshadows. I'm not a fan of Benefit Box o Powder cardboard packaging, although I have to admit it's cute. I can imagine myself destroying it really easily. Luckily, I depot every powder product and put them in a palette, so the packaging can't bother me much. But I don't appreciate Benefit keeping up the price and cutting down the amount of product. They thought they could compensate it with flip-top and mirror? That is called f*****g your loyal consumers. I'm definitely looking to find a dupe from a more respectable brand. It's probably going to be hard as this is the most perfect contouring shade that I've tried. In the meantime, I have no choice but to repurchase.
