Love this for contouring! It's great for an everyday contour but it's also so easy to build up for a more dramatic look.

I use this (like almost everyone on here) as a contouring powder, and for the price it's hard to beat. First, I'm surprised to read reviews saying it's good for fair but not for tan/darker skin tones? In my opinion I would say the exact opposite. It's the exact colour of a natural shadow, and looks great on my NC40 skin.
The product can be tricky to master. I agree it can be patchy/muddy/too harsh. The trick is to use a CLEAN brush (you don't need to wash the brush each time, just swipe on hand or tissue to get rid of residue on the bristles). Start with a really light hand and little product, because it can look muddy real fast. I apply this before bronzer and blush for a more muted look. Also, I find its really easy to go overboard with this (a little goes a long way ppl), but you can take away the harshness blending it in with bronzer and/or blush.
Bottom line: if you think the colour is right for your skin, I recommend trying it. It's cheap! Can't go wrong with a VERY light sweep and lots of blending, but be prepared to practice and figure out what works for you.

Perfect for my pale, cool toned skin so happy i finally got my fingers on this. If your pale and struggling to find a contour shade that isn't too warm this is the one for you trust me. And to that price how can you not be excited.

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 mimicked the shade of natural shadows on the face, which are cooler and grayer in nature. NYX Taupe blush is PERFECT for that purpose. I like to use an angled natural blush brush like the MAC 168 with this and it gives me the most natural result. It doesn't look like I deliberately carved out my cheek or jawline.Honestly this "blush" doesn't have high pigmentation, however... but I like it that way. This is very dependent on preference. I like a more natural, diffused contour so I like that the pigment is not too strong. I can see pale ladies loving this blush for that reason. I believe that the HD blush formula of this colour by NYX is more pigmented, if you're more of a stickler for that. The texture is very soft and easily blendable, but it doesn't kick up powder everywhere.I heard a few years back that this would be discontinued so I already bought a backup... but it looks like it's here to stay. Thank you, makeup gods! So to answer your last question--yes, I would definitely run out and repurchase this!

Caveat: This only gets 2 stars because it didn't work for me and as a "heads up" to others with my skin tone. If you are pale this would be THE BOMB contouring product and likely get a 5 star rating easily!Note to NC30's and darker: This will NOT work for you as a contouring product - It will be too light and if you are warm toned and try to pack it on for some sort of color payoff or attempt to use it as a barely there blush, it will look too grey and muddy. Note to pale skin shades = lighter than NC30: This is gonna look awesome as a contour! Especially if cool toned. Pro's and cons abt the product: Dirt cheap stuff here so if it works for you congrats! There is a ton of fallout to this product but it's so inexpensive that's not a big deal I suppose. Dispite fallout, I don't find this to be chalky on actual application and it seems easily blendable. This is inexpensive enough for anyone to give it a try and see how they feel about it. If you are a contouring newbie this is a good place to start experimenting as well. I highly recomend this for pale skinned folks, not at all for medium and darker.

This doesn't have much pigmentation, I find it hard to get enough product on my brush. This blush is chalky and does not show up to much on my NC30 (yellow) skin tone. I think this would look better on lighter and cooler skintones. I personally don't like the formula, not pigmented enough does not blend well and my brushes don't pick up much of the product, I tossed it!

As most of the reviews here, this is a pale girls savior when it comes to contouring. I've tried it all and just assumed I couldn't get the technique of blending down, enough to make it look natural even though I consider myself advanced when it comes to makeup. Low and behold NYX taupe showed up in my life and as it turns out, I was just using the wrong product all along. Contouring is supposed to create a shadow and this product does just that. Its cool toned, no shimmer, very blendable and long lasting. If your giving up on contouring and your a pale girl, definitely get this.

I purchased this blush in Taupe. This blush was recommended as a great contour powder for very fair skin. The product was alright for the price, but made me break out like crazy. I applied it along my cheeks and my skin was not pleased. It clogged my pores like crazy. I'm now struggling with breakout and bumps on my cheek contour line.

It's a nice contour - I've been using it for about 2 months. I do notice that where I contour along my jaw, however, I'm a bit itchy and bumpy. Not very itchy but just bothersome at times. This started soon after I started using Nyx Taupe. It's weird because that area of my face never was reactive to anything before. I wanted to keep on trying it though because the price is great and I like the way it looks on me. I think at this point, I may switch to another contour though because something in this must be irritating me since I'm still itchy along my jaw! Does anyone else get a reaction?

This is a good blush for contour if you have fair/medium skin. This is more a bronzer than a blush. Taupe doesn't has shimmer wich is perfect for define your cheekbones and your face structure. The pigmentation is awesome and you only need a tiny bit of product. The shade is a medium brown . If you have yellow undertones wich is my case you need to be careful because it can look muddy and not cute at all. I prefer using this one in fall/winter because it looks more natural and creates a good shades in your face. I put 4 lippies because it's not my favorite and for yellow undertones I can see what people don't like it so much.I would buy it again? no, I prefer others but if you have fair skin and pink undertones you will like
