I use harmony for all over contour but when I want my cheeks to pop, I go in with a thin line of embark and blend it more narrowly to give more definition. It's simple and works great for me!
I do this too. I love using eye shadow for a powder contour; it is too difficult to find a good product made specifically for contour for WOC, so I started using e/s long ago.

I just discovered Harmony! It is perfect. I love it, it does not turn orange or red on me! I am going to try embark for added emphasis

Embark (e/s) is a fave for darker skins (dark, matte e/s is mentioned many times in this thread), as is Definitive sculpting powder and CG Queen bronzer in Ebony Bronze.
Thanks. I think I'm gonna go for the Becca though since I've never had luck with Covergirl and I don't want to use Embark. It's too small and I don't want to replace it so often.

I am NC 50 & I put on about 2-3 layers & used it with a thin line of embark & it was very nice, it added just a bit more emphasis. I think it will work but you will have to layer. It is almost like a nude blush/bronzer on me

My favorite contour product is Sephora 8 hour mattifying foundation compact in Ebony , #8.
I use it as bronzer too sometimes. Its brown but does not lean orange or red on my NC50 skin.

I just discovered MAC Saddle!!! I use it to contour my nose, Embark and Blunt were to obvious and harsh on me, though I love them for a cheek contour...I use a 215 brush and Saddle ( orangy brown) gives me an instant rhinoplasty haha :)

I finally got Becca's Cocoa and it is literally all I need. It is neutral to cool in tone so if I want to warm it up I put MAC's Raizin over it. And I use so little it'll last me forever.

I am NC 50, have any of you tried Sleek Face Form? Would I get Medium or Dark? Thank you [/quote I use dark sleek face form. Just hit pan the other day. It's not TOOO dark it's just right. I barely use the other 2 colors. Just started using the middle shade as highlighter. It's actually very pretty. Color #3 not sure about lol. I'm also nc 50.

I realized how much I love buck from my naked palette as my transition shade so lately I've been using it to contour! Pop it on my 109 brush and there ya go. Then I usually go over it with my estee lauder bronze goddess bronzer with a crown brush um i guess big fluffy contour brush ive had for ages because I have a heavy hand and like to be a bit more warm. I'm about nc44. Love buck! I want to spend on contour powders but once you really use what you have there simply is no need. :)

I use Mandalay dusk powder from shea moisture
l This powder is beautiful! It is my new love. The sleek contour kit in medium is great on my C8/NC50 skin. The dark is for my dramatic days. My sis bought one of black up's dual ended highlight/contour stick. It's the closest to richly honed she's seen.

So far I've been using what I have to contour with. Mostly face products that I ordered that were too dark. I tried LA Girl Pro Concealers, not bad, but I prefer the Toffee color more for outlining my brows. The applicator brush makes it easy. But I feel like I want a palette so I'm not repeatedly grabbing products. I'm no contour-queen mind you, I don't really do it during the week for work. More for when I go out. I went to Sephora on Friday and fell in love with the Cover FX Contour Kit! Anyone see or try it out? I would need N Deep and that #2 color is everything!! A nice bronze. I'm a NW45 and everything out there for contouring, as I'm sure a lot of you have experienced, the darkest shade is usually the same color as my skin. I bought NYX's Wonder Stick and that's exactly what happened. After wanting it since last summer and they never restocked until this year and that's what happened. I was pissed.

Also saw Sephora's contour palette in the store. It's huge. I like that the dark color is actually dark. For $28 wondering if you really can go wrong.
