The perfect contouring powder for my fair skin with neutral undertones, fool-proof also for contouring newbies.

Would re-purchase if it wasn't discontiued.

Great contour for my NC15-20 skin. Never goes muddy. It creates subtly chiselled cheekbones. Strada is a beige(with hints of pink) and looks IMO more fresher and alive than Harmony(darker than Strada by 2 tones). Harmony *may* look muddy on those NW20 or lighter depending on application. I apply mine with a MAC 168 and totally love the foolproof application. Never goes on streaky and fades evenly on my oily skin. *and i hate blushers which fade unevenly on my skin!*
i have to reapply just once at most in 8 hrs in my 30degree celsius hot Singapore weather. it's not carried in Singapore and i think this may be discontinued(i got mine this April at San Francisco's Bloomingdale's counter) An MA tried Tantone on me but i think it has a tendency to look muddy when it oxidizes.

I may try MAC Taupe next which is supposedly a dead ringer for the popular LE MAC Emote blush.

I used to despise blush and this was the color that began my love of blush! This is the perfect contouring shade for my NC20 skin. I also like it as a full on blush for when I'm wearing dramatic eyes or lips because it doesn't clash. It just enhances. I just realized while reviewing this product that it has been discontinued and I'm so sad!

Fantastic. Amazing contour on my NC30 skin. Not too dark. Was so SICK of bronzer, this is an amazing way to contour. Always stay matte for the day time!! Love it

I bought strada to use as a "no color" color and I don't regret a second of it. It's also a near sister to Malt shadow and I use this on my eye to warm up around a crease color or eyelid color that's too stark or blue-toned. The pigment is not the very best but I don't really like a dense application of straight color. Just saying for those who might not prefer a lesser pigment. I would buy this again because I use it for eye, contour cheek, and blend with bronzers that are too stark to tone down the color. I also use it for a wash of something that's not quite a rosy blush when I'm off to the gym or on errands, as well as a nose contour and i see this as a very versatile color for just about any color range. I'm surprised it's only found at outlet stores now so I'm going to stock up while it's available.

Hi all, listen up. I went to MAC and initially asked for Blunt. Turns out it's been discontinued.Don't you hate when that happens?! So I explained I wanted it for contouring so what's the alternative. Without hesitation the MUA says Strada! Next thing you know I'm looking at the pan and think: Yikes, it looks horrible what is that stuff, mud ?? Of course I was proven wrong because once applied it did exactly what I wanted. No joke, serious. MUA even told me that this will work on anybody, amazing right. I've used it every day since I bought it and it's wonderful. I totally recommend and understand that this is a colour you would walk past without blinking. Don't is my advice, let the MUA show you how and where to apply, it's superb. I use it for contouring my cheeks and dab a bit on the forehead and jawline. Done!

HG! HG! HG! The best blush ever! And I have tried a whole lot of them! I find that on me blushes either go orange if it's warm or ashy pink if its cool. this does neither. it's the perfect neutral blush/contour. a nice subtle beige and not muddy at all as it looks in the packaging. If I could only choose 1 blush it would be strada....followed by harmony.

I use this every day. It makes contouring extremely easy since it is a light shade of almost a clay-brown with a tinge of pink. It is very subtle which makes it hard to mess up while using. It has been discontinued, but I picked up two backups at a CCO, so go get it while you can!
