WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?


New member
I can be anything from an NC 35-42 ... but I do have slight red undertones or so I'm told and the only contour powder that doesn't look orange on me is Sleek's contour powder in medium. It comes with a highlight too... though I tend to use a light hand in the winter months

MAC Emotion, Taupe, Sculpt, Bone Beige or Strada

K. Aucoin Sculpting powder

Chanel Accent

(these work on most skin colors)

I use a bobby brown foundation stick. I also use a Lancôme pressed powder that's several shades darker and I also have this Iman blush that's a nice brown shade with warm pigments when blended out. Depending what I have at hand. Mostly reach for the Iman blush for a daily look.

The Sleek Contour Kit is a winner for me. I tried a bunch of different products from MAC and NARS, but Sleek's is the best in my opinion.

How do you use it dear? Also what's your normal foundation shade?
I'm a NC50 in Mac. I just take a contour brush and apply to my cheekbones and temples. I want to get Nars mat velvet as a base and see how that works as well.


[h=1]My favorites are Bobbi Brown in Deep Chocolate (discontinued), Guerlain 08 Bronzer, and MAC Blunt.[/h]

I love Bobbi Brown deep chocolate though it is discontinued =/ might be able to find it at a CCO
Or the Mac richly honed and Ben nye has great contour powders too!

Which contour kit color should I get. I'm a match master 7.5 NC 50 girl!! Want to get either the face form or the contour kit.

I'm NC45....Black Opal foundation stick in Suede Mocha has been my go to for a dramatic contour. Otherwise I use the darkest shade in the Anastasia palette (which is highly overrated btw).

Benifit High Beam
YSL Touche Eclat
Nars Copacabana illuminator
NYX Wonderstick
NARS Albatross Highlighter Blush.
MAC Blushes
Smashbox Artificial Light Illuminizing Lotion

Anastasia contour palette, but the one I put together. I don't think I'll need another contour product anytime soon.

I'm so tempted by the Anastasia palette you can put together yourself. I want Carob and Banana so badly, but if I'm buying those two, I might as well go all out with the full six pans, right? :)

Also, now I want MAC Blunt, although I'm not sure it'll be dark enough for my liking?

When I want a true shadowy contour, I use MAC Pro Sculpting Cream in Richly Honed. It was LE, and I have no idea why they wouldn't make it permanent because it's so hard to find a contour cream in such a dark, ashy shade. When I'm feeling lazy and/or want to warm up my face at the same time, I use the CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer in the darkest shade. I'm also eyeing some of Guerlain's bronzers, but I hear they smell odd. Not necessarily a deal-breaker for me, but something to consider.

I just got the chocolate Soleli Bronzer from Two Faced (after eyeing it for literally four years) and aside from it smelling wonderful it really is a good contour. I'm an NC35 at my lightest and an NC 42 at my darkest, but if you're lighter than me I recommend the Milk Chocolate version of this Bronzer.

I use so many different products...
some of my favorites are:
- MUFE sculpting kit #3
- tarte hotel heiress bronzer (I believe they discontinued this... booo)
- too faced cream bronzer (I can't remember the name)
- MAC mid-tone sepia cream color base
- NARS casino

clearly I like to use bronzer to contour
