This is a superb blush. The color, a beige/tan with a touch of pink, just the faintest touch, is wonderful and an excellent contouring blush for me. I use this as a contour and then I put a touch of Stark Naked Beauty Powder on the apples and I feel very sophisticated and polished!

On the search for the PERFECT contour shade for my NW25-30 skin tone !! I first began with wedge eye shadow however that came off too grey and i felt like i had to pack on the color to get even the slightest pay off. i wanted something that was gonna SCULPT my face to the NINES !! This does it and i love it !! took me a little getting use to in terms of how much product to use and how to apply it ! but after a couple days of playing around my face FIERCE and model like haha !! just LOVE ! price? MEHHHH Mac blushes are overpriced in general in my opinion.
Apparently an exact dupe of this product is the L'oreal true match super bendable powder make up in "Cocoa". I have read that it IS THE SAME THING. not too sure since i've never looked! if anyone tries that give me a shout would love to know if it's a DUPE !

I use this for contouring and not as a blush cause the colour is too dark for a blush. This is good for giving an all rounded glow, and its great cause it stays on all day. Previously I was using the balm's bronzer, and that faded away really fast. A definite essential for contouring!

I like this blush for contouring, although it's definitely too strong a color to use as an all-over bronzer. Can be used on the apples of my cheeks if I use a VERY light touch. This is a good color to use if being photographed in black-and-white film, as it accentuates the bone structure quite well when applied for contouring.

For reference: I'm an NC42 Olive to neutral base. Really depends on the season. At my palest I can be quite olive but I can wear cool tones with no problem. This blush is AMAZING!!! I can't believe that I didn't discover it before my 16 MAC blushes. It's the perfect flush on me. It wakes up my face and brings me to live. Gives my cheeks that sunkissed look. I don't even wear foundation at all. This and my Bobbi Brown Gold Light bronzer is the perfect everyday look. Pair it up with a plum eyeliner and mascara and I'm ready to go. Definitely would buy this blush again.

Love this blush, awesome for contouring. Was suggested to me by the girl at the mac store and I was not disappointed, I use this product almost everyday.

Wow! This product is just gorgeous. My new HG contour powder :) I had been buying MAC's limited edition Sculpt + Shape powders but besides wanting something I could get within the permanent line, I wanted a contour shade that suited me well.
So, being a huge pixi2woo fan on YouTube, I decided to check it out and was NOT disappointed. I LOVE this powder!

This is so wonderful for contouring. Its a nice muted brown with reddish undertone which is great because it doesn't look dirty or muddy. For reference I am an NC25. Its so finely milled making it so easy to blend. I never get harsh lines like I used to when I used the Bare Esscentuals warmth mineral powder. I would definitely recommend this...I think it would work for NC/NW 40 and under complexions.

I was convinced after watching pixi2woo from youtube use this as a contour. I would describe Harmony as a medium brown with a slight red undertone. Now that may sound scary at first, but let me explain my theory. I think that brown with a hint of red undertone is great for the contour because your cheeks should always have a bit more colour than the rest of your face. Harmony reminds me of something Cheryl Cole would use to contour her beautiful cheeks. In the contour category, I also like to interchangeably use Benefit Hoola, Nars Laguna and MAC Cubic (pair this with Harmony for a neutral sculpted look).

HG contour for a NW15/20. It's totally matte and light enough that I can use it normally.. most bronzers/contour powders are so dark i can only use a tiny bit and then blend forever.

On my very fair neutral-toned skin (NC/NW 10), this is the perfect contour powder -- applied sparingly! It is a warm light brown with reddish undertones. It is the perfect color for contouring under my chin because that area doesn't normally get any sunlight so a yellow-based bronzer/contour would look unnatural. It gets rid of my slight double chin, and works to give definition to my cheekbones too. The SA also suggested NW50 powder as a contour for me, but that has a touch more gold than Harmony, so it's better as a bronzer.
As the reviews show, this doesn't work on all skin tones so definitely try before you buy. One helpful trick is to test on the inside of your wrist, as well as on your face, to make sure it doesn't clash with your undertones or turn orange on you. Because the inside of your wrist gets no sun, your natural undertones show through more clearly there, in all kinds of lighting.

My HG contour shade!! I use it every single day. Perfect neutral brown!

This blush is absolutely fabulous. My MA told me to use this as a contour with my 116 brush and I've never looked back!

This is a beautiful product! I use this as a contour, as I find it can look too harsh as a blush. It blends easily into the skin to give a very natural shadow under the cheekbone and the colour is also quite buildable. Paired with a highlighter (I use benefit highbeam) it really sculpts the face and looks fantastic. The packaging is quite dull however, but the product is great and that's what matters I guess! I would definitely recommend :)

One of the best purchases I've ever made, really. Sounds ridiculous for a blush, but it really is.
I use it as a contour, on my pale nw/nc15 skin. It is ever so slightly orange on me if i'm wearing a very very pale foundation, such as Bare Minerals in Fair, but if i'm wearing something with a tad more colour (but still a match to my skin, like NARS Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc) then it is very beautiful. It really warms the skin while still being flat enough to work as a contour. I have slightly copper tones in my hair and it is beautiful bouncing off of those.
A staple now - a good, solid colour and formulation I come back to time and again. I really wouldn't be without it now. Lovely.

I used it as my blusher rather than contouring. I found it too dark and kinda dirty. As a blusher, it have this nice glow on my skin!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I bought this blush originally as a contour powder, although I'm not completely happy with it for those purposes. I'm a NC20 and I just feel that this colour is a little too dark and dirty looking as a contour colour, particularly in daylight, although for a night out it's fine. The other day I used this as a blusher and bronzer and it is amazing. I cannot rave about this more. It provides a wonderfully natural bronzed look to my skin, and I end up applying this to the tops of my cheeks, my hairline, forehead, a little along the nose and in the crease of my eye to define it, and then I just put loads of mascara on and it is the most wonderfully natural sexy look ever. It can be used to subtly frame the face and give that glowy look. I am in love and reccomend it not as a contour powder although it might work for some, but rather as a matte subtle bronzer and blusher!

This product was alright. I wanted to use it as a countour shade but it had more of a reddish-undertone to it. Didn't really suit my skin as my skin is golden with yellow undertones.

I don't even know where to begin with this product! I love it in sooo many ways! It is the perfect contour colour and looks great on my skin tone. (NC 20) I can use this as a blush too if I use a light hand and like the other MAC blushes, it's very pigmented. I recommend this blush to the high heavens and I seriously think you are missing out if you don't have it!

I absolutely love this blush! I was originally just looking to use this as a contour blush to accentuate my high cheekbones. The MUA thought it would be too light as a contour but when I tried it, I thought it was perfect. It didn't appear as if I even had it on...but in a good way. I had planned on using this just as a contour blush but most often time this is the only thing I put on my cheeks. I like the natural look where it barely looks like you have make-up on but very well put together.
