I bought this a couple of months ago and use it as a contour almost every day. It's a good cool toned contour for me and I easily use it on my warm-toned sister as a contour simply by adjusting what sections I sweep over.
It's very pigmented so I sweep the brush over the powder, shake or wipe off excess, and then apply. Works for me and I'm nc15. Not my HG contour (it would have to be more cool toned) but you get a good amount of product, it's cheap, and easy to find at Ulta, on cherryculture, or on Ebay.

My HG bronzer, i always look out on something that is similar but i found none. Hit pan on this, used it everyday. Loving how the colours can be used seperately and together. When rushing i will use the lightest colour as an highlight and the 2nd lightest to contour my nose. awesome product got mine for SGD $10.

Iíd been quite skeptical this products being so cheap until I actually tried it on my skin. Now, I have to admit this is another winner from NYX! Although I have MAC mineralize skinfinsh (Medium Dark) for contouring, I seldom reach it lately.
This product is almost matte and doesnít give you any glittery shine, which is ideal for the use of contouring. I donít see any differences between MSF and this particular Mosaic Powder in terms of staying-power and pigmentation. Moreover, the NYX one, comprised of four different shades, allows you to be more creative.
Well, if I have to find a drawback in it, the packaging looks and feels cheap, but hey, it is actually cheap! If you're looking for a good contouring powder, give it a try!

Amazing product. I was looking for an American version of Kanebo Kate's ex4 for nose contouring. Works very well. Also can use as a neutral e/s, face contouring Definitely part of my daily routine.
I tried some of the other Mosaic Powders, rosey, love, dare, and peachy. I LOVE em!! Super cheap too. I get it at my local beauty wholesaler for $4.00. Can't beat that.

Very useful as a matte bronzer/facecolor for medium/fair skin. Try using Latte as a neutral eyeshadow also. It is very nice, and i think i will use it mostly as an everyday e/s :-) Update 02.06.2010: I`m going to run out of this one as I`ve been reaching for it almost every day as a bronzer/facecolor this winter. Very forgiving, and I love its versatility as a neutral eyeshadow too. Definately repurchase!

I either love or hate NYX cosmetics and fortunately I love the mosaic range.
I have 6 of them in varying shades and they are just fantastic.
I actually use Latte as a contouring powder along my temples, cheeks and jawline and the colour is a perfect match for my fair skin tone and gives me just the right amount of shadow.
No shimmer or sparkle, goes on fairly light but can build up to a goodly amount of shadow.
Great value for the price.

I am really liking this blush (although I don't use it as a blush...more on that in a sec). I was in RiteAid today, just looking around, and found this on the *new* NYX display (yay!) I immediately noticed that it has a slight gray/brown tone to it, and knew it would be perfect as a contour color :)
I am a neutral/slightly yellow PPP (MAC NC15 in studio fix fluid, N4 in studio fix powder), and MAC's "Strada" is my everyday contour. I love it, but sometimes wish I had something a bit deeper for summertime/evenings out. I tried MAC's "Harmony," and it was okay, but it was a bit bronzy for me and a bit dark. IMO, NYX's "Latte" is what would happen if Strada and harmony had a baby...perfect!
The powder is in a mosaic form, but blends really evenly, so you get the same color every time. It also has no shimmer that I can detect (which I like, since I don't like shimmer in contour colors) The packaging is fine...clean and functional, with a see-through lid so you can easily see the color. It's nothing fancy (no mirror or anything), but feels sturdy and takes up minimal space. Best of all, you get a ton of product (the pan is the same diameter as MAC blush powders, although I don't have the exact amount of product you get on hand at the moment), and they only cost ~6-7 bucks (depending on where you buy). Overall, definately worth a try!
