I wanted a cream contour product for a long time, but there seem to be few on the market. The MAC creams that came out last year didn't have the right undertone that I wanted, and while Tom Ford's looks great, I live in a place where I would have to buy it in pounds sterling without testing it first, which I wasn't willing to do for so much money. Also, I find a lot of contour products are just too orange to look natural, but when I found this Ben Nye product I was thrilled. These really have a grey undertone, which is what you need to create believable shadow. I have it in the color Neutral. It's not super creamy, which disappointed me at first, but I find it actually helps to get a more specific application so it's no longer an issue. I generally apply it over my foundation with a small stippling brush to get a sheer application. If want a heavier look, you can build gradually. It really stays in place, and definitely looks natural on my NC20/25 skin. I've yet to try applying it under my foundation and then blending it out, but I also haven't been motivated to do so.

For me, this was a great find and I paid nine euros for it, which is a steal. I like it better for more dramatic/evening looks personally, and use powder during the day time. Ben Nye seems to be really underrated, but the products I have from them so far are fantastic and I'm lucky enough to live near a professional cosmetics store that stocks their entire line. The only con for me is the packaging. The case I have is hard to open, and I generally prefer something that I can put it a palette, but that's just me.

NOTHING about this colour is natural! its so unbelievably orange, not even an fake tan orange, like a burnt red terracotta orange. the formula is good but i just cant imagine anyone suiting this,at all. have no use for it at all, no matter how little product i use..
