Tl;dr: - Use under foundation - Decent texture and tone - Good value for the price I was curious about cream contouring after watching videos with Scott Barnes (look him up on YT before using this, if you haven't!). I have a rather prominent face bone structure and I like to highlight my features. Usually, I use contour powder and bronzer (Physicians Formula Bronze Booster matte palette currently, it is nice). But lately I've become tired of the powders' drying feel, and now I'm looking into cream options. The prospects of washing more brushes don't excite me, so I opted for a stick format. I can't rave about it, it just works. I mostly used the contour side. This is definitely made for use under foundation, as indicated by the packaging visuals. It is waxy and thick enough to stay in place after layering and blending, but not too stiff in the application. The tone is nice too (I have it in Light), not too dark, not too light, not too red. I don't remember feeling annoyed or super happy about using this product. All in all, it has good value. I have no complaints. A good way to try a new trick without paying a bunch of money. This doesn't excite me because it is a bit bulky to store and I don't really need the light side. It would be cool if inexpensive brands carried something like a thinner stick with contour only (e.g. mascara-shaped), and a decent amount of it, instead of these double-ended obsolete trendy things. Even among glam YouTubers, how many people actually do matte highlighting other than some concealer? I will continue looking for a more practical option.
