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 think dark brown matte shadows make excellent contour products. the foundation sticks are another great choice, i just find the e/s's offer greater control for me personally.
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.

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.

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.
