    Yes they are. I have the full pans and are available at Mac PRO. Definitive is more brown than Shadowy. Shadowy is the darkest shade and has alot of grey in it.

    Another vote for Benefit Hoola Gives a nice sharp contour but the only negative I guess is that you have to keep building up the color to get it dark but other than that, it gives a beautiful matte finish
    Yeah I'm superficial, Whatever...

    MAC is releasing the Face & Body collex soon and I can't wait to check it out.

    I am interested in the contour creams.

    It sucks that this is a LE collex (except for the F&B foundation).

    I love contouring - there is something alluring about it. I feel naked if I don't "do my bones" first.

    I feel like I've missed a step.

    Sadly, there is no 5 minute makeup for me!

    I checked out the contour creams and it was a pass. No go. Blunt blush it will be.

    What didn't you like about the contour creams? I currently use Blunt (which tends to lean a little too red) or the darkest Covergirl Queen bronzer (I like it, but I'm looking for something just a smidgen darker). If I ever make it to a PRO store I hope to try Definitive or Shadowy sculpting powders.

    I'm NC50 and tried MAC's Coffee Walnut on the back of my hand today and as figured, that shade would look like crap on me. Richly Honed is better for my shade. Right now I'm liking RH and Sleek Makeup Contour Kit in Dark.

    Hey Debbs! My suggestion would be to either ask an MA at the counter or let youtube be your friend. LOL!

    Here's a vid I found the other day. Of course this is just one of sooooo many though. Go to the 1:30 mark to see his placements of contouring and highlighting shades.

    Here are 2 more that may help you out a bit.

    I just watched this vid and she used MAC's Brown Down. I don't think I've ever used a dark brown shadow for contouring even though I've thought about trying it many times. Thought about buying a darker than usual foundation stick too but again, haven't done it and I have no real idea as to why I haven't.

    I just remembered I recently bought Desire pigment from Magnolia Makeup. I need to see how that might work as a contour product as well.

    By looking at Temptalia's swatches, the shades Definitive and Warm Light almost remind me of my Sleek Contour Kit in Dark. Almost.
    They are at pro and now available to all on the mac website.

    I really love MAC's pro contour cream in Richly Honed. It's so easy to work with and suits my skin tone. I go back and forth between that and Blunt blush =)

    I use the Sleek Face Contour Kit in Medium. I don't contour often but, when I do, it's idiot proof enough that even I can do it.

    I have started using the Ruby Kisses ( a Korean product. Mostly found in beauty supply stores) 3D Face Creator in the darkest shade (I think it's a 16) for my contour and then using blunt over it. This gives me the absolue BEST contour. Almost too good- if I'm not careful, my cheek starts to look very dragalicious. I'm a NC50, for reference.

    LA Colors pro concealers in espreeso and dark cocoa are good contour colors for those who are darker than NW/NC 45. They are cream based (think Make Up Forever Full Coverage concealers).

    I am NC 45/ MUFE 173. Would Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 08 Ebony be too dark for me? I'm interested in this bronzer.
    I love make up when it looks natural and complements...not overwhelms. My complexion is caramel with yellow undertones (NC45/MUFE 173).

    NC45 and I love Chanel's Notorious sculpting powder. It happens to be sold out pretty much everywhere now and with good reason.

    NW 50-55 and I use the brown shade in the wet n wild vanity palette which allegedly is a dupe for Embark eye shadow by Mac. I also use some random brown shade from the coastal scents 252 palette which is WONDERFUL.
