If you want a subtle, yet effective product, this works. Putting this on is so easy and because it is light, it is not going to look too dark.I found that I needed to add an extra smaller brush for the high-lighter, as the one brush that came with the product, was perfect (angled) for the contouring, and I didn't want to get this mixed in with the vanilla high-lighter.I also would have liked more high-lighter in the compact.I also use this product for a eyeshadow in the crease area. There is a lot of product, so it seems like it should last a long time.

I love this product! It really does sculpt your cheekbones, and it makes my rounded face appear slimmer. I really like the contour shade, it is a a very neutral color which emulates a your faces natural shadows. I always get compliments from this, I havent seen a better sculpting product.

I like this. I got into this kind of shading/contouring with Lauren Hutton's Disc and I like her kabuki brush for this purpose. I have a crooked nose and a bit of this light powder stroked on with the finger and then balanced with the dark shade is great. I have not been impressed with any of the brushes that Laura Geller includes with her products, although the powders are terrific. I think this will last a long time, but I would buy it again.

Im new to contouring , just figured out how to do it, and im so glad. and im so happy i got this kit because there are other brands that just have the powder then you have to figure out what brush to use. this one comes with a great little brush. the first day i tried this out literally 5 minutes later i saw someone who i hadnt seen in a couple months and they asked me if id lost weight, and said its really noticeable in my face. so that was just reassurance that this stuff does wat its supposed to do i was happy lol

I saw Laura on QVC with this product and it made me really want to try contouring. It came with an angled brush and in a sweet little compact with a mirror. This product is okay, but I hate that there is glitter in the contouring part of the powder. Why does Laura ALWAYS put glitter in her products? No one wants a glittery face. The colour suits my skin tone but I have to be very careful not to apply too much. You have to be quite careful with the application, because if you use too much of the darker shade it can look so false and like you have smeared dirt on your face. My technique is to swirl the brush in the dark brown and tap off the excess, and then EVER so lightly brush it under my cheekbones, in the hollow part. Then just a light stripe of the highlighter.I have taken off another lippie because it annoys me that there is only one quarter of the highlighting powder in the compact. Why didnt Laura make it half and half?!

This works quite well to contour my face except im not so keen on the sparkle in the contour shade. whats up with that? I dont want to look like a disco ball. If you get the application of this right it can work very well and the brush is really useful and great. If you get the application wrong you can end up looking like you have a stripe of mud on your face. The highlight colour doesnt show up all that well on me so I have to use a different highlighter.I wont be buying this again I want to try a different contour powder and I'm all set with my benefit highbeam for highlighting

I love this product. I had been searching for a bronzer/sculpt product for ages that didn't have any orange or red in it. It makes me look healthy but you have to use a light hand and keep buffing it. It's made all the difference to me in appling my makeup. Thank you Laura!

I got this in a swap because the Sephora lady tried to sell this item to me and quite frankly it's abit expensive for me. And she mentioned the brush included is not so great and I already have tons of brushes so no thanks in buying it brand new. The lady mentioned to not use the brush included because it picks up the glitter/shimmer and that's not good. I absolutely love the dark color for contouring. It's been hard for me to find a contour shade that's not orange or really a bronzer. Done right, this is a really good buy for tan to darker skin tones.

I would consider this my HG contouring powder, except that I have a few problems with the Shade N Sculpt product itself. Let's start off with the pros of this product. It is the perfect shade of brown to mimic the contours of one's face naturally displays. It's easily blendable and doesn't take much to create that perfectly contoured look. When the face is contoured correctly, someone can look slimmer and more proportionate. It can make a big forehead look smaller and can minimize a double chin. Someone can make their nose look a little more narrow and also strengthen their jaw line. The highlighting powder is amazing and creates a great "glow." While the pros are absolutely great, there are a few cons to Laura Geller's Shade N Sculpt. The product has gold glitter in it. For someone with very oily skin, like mine, this just makes my skin look even more oily and nasty. I'd imagine that it's also not friendly in photography with high flashes. I wanted to love this product so much, but unfortunately, I must let it go. Laura Geller is now creating "sugar-free" products, aka - products without glitter. Hopefully she will create Shade N Sculpt in "sugar-free", because if she does, I will most definitely repurchase it! This is available at QVC, Sephora, and LauraGeller.com for $38 and comes with a contouring brush.

Have to agree with previous review. Why oh why is there glitter in the dark section when this is supposed to be creating a shadow? I find a lot of Laura's products are spoiled due to the amount of glitter in them.Aside from that the powder is a good shade, sheer and easily blendable (if you don't use the awful cheap brush it comes with).I like the highlighter which doesn't appear too glittery (which I expected!) so is very versatile. Normally I steer clear of them because of this. Would like to see a larger portion of the highlighter or have it as a stand alone item.This is very expensive though at around £26 in the UK. Ouch.
