Like many others I'm using this as a contouring powder, and as a terrifyingly pale human it works pretty gosh darn well for that. The packaging, however, has gradually destroyed itself. The clear top popped out first, leading to the lid frame to crack around the edge and also straight up from the hinge. Be careful with this one though, build too much and you look kind of dirty or sickly or …Read more

I bought this as a contouring product but I just ended up looking dirty. It didn't suit my warm undertone. Quality-wise, it goes on kinda patchy. Now I just use it on my eyes as an eyeshadow.

Perfect contouring product for fair skin tones. Got it for under 5 dollars - more than happy of my purchase.

I'm crazy in love with this shade. Though it's advertised as a blush, to me (and probably everyone else using this shade) it makes for the most perfect contour powder.

I'm guessing if you're in the States it's probably easier to get your hands on, and cheaper. However, in South Africa it's not stocked at all outlets, and is always the first to be sold out …

Love this as a contour for pale skin like mine, love that it is a matte powder, although it is a tiny bit patchy sometimes and a hair too warm.

My secret loves:
I have found that Sephora Collection matte eyeshadow "Scented Candle" no. 229 (cool/netural, greyish taupe), and "Skinny-Dipping" No. 271 (warm taupe) a slightly better match for me than NYX.

Good contour color for lighter complexions. Worth a try.

I was recently searching for a new contour shades as I find a lot of the shades in the contour kits I own don't really give me that chiseled look. I went on Amazon and decided to purchase this despite being a nc25-30 and I was amazed. Yeah it was about 9 bucks but it wasn't powdery what so ever and I found it very easy to work with. I'm disappointed it's being discontinued but …Read more

I wanted to try this as a contour. . Received it recently from the Nyx website. It was very powdery and applied kind of patchy which made it difficult to control the application. If I had a straight contour brush with short bristles it would have been better. I was able to use this as an eye shadow as well which was a bonus. Going to part with a few more dollars and try the Inglot contour …Read more

Not a game changer for me BUT I will still get some use out of it. I have a medium skin tone so this is a little light for me. Plus, I found it hard to build up to get color on my skin tone. It is also, ssoooo powdery!? Is this new to NYX blushes? I have other colors in the older packaging that are delightful but this one just dusted up something fierce. Wet n Wild has a contour palette that …Read more

OMG, THIS IS MY HG CONTOUR SHADE. It is a must-have if you're pale to light medium, but I'm iffy about recommending it for medium skin tones. I have NC20 skin and although I have warm tones technically, I never liked how a lot of contour powders were on the warm side. If I wanted to use bronzer, I'd use that instead of contouring.

I wanted to find a contour powder that …
