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
Yeah so I just tried Embark to contour my cheek and it's too dark for me, mind you I don't have any powder on my face. Let me check out Saddle though. Thanks.

I use Embark for a deep snatched dramatic contour for night but I'm sure with a light hand it can work... Have u tried Blunt???

No I haven't tried Blunt. Embark likely can work. I'll try when I'm actually made up. I jumped up out my bed literally to try it when you mentioned it, lol.

Yeah I know better, trust me. Lazy Sunday. I rarely put makeup on on the weekends unless I'm going out. I'll try it maybe tomorrow. What do you use to highlight?

I just ordered my first contour palette from Anastasia that I built, so I'm excited to try it out. I also use Mac's Mineralized skin finish in Dark Deep to lightly contour/bronze. I'm a Mac NW43. Here are some swatches of the palette: colors from left to right- Golden Peach, Peaches & Cream, Terracotta, Ash Brown, Espresso, Carob

Ok this is excellent because I tried the ABH Cream Contour kit In Medium and the main contour shade was off for me... I chose the Medium kit over Dark because the highlight colors in Dark were a lil off for my particular liking... As for the powder contour kit, the Med/Deep kit sold in Sephora and Macy's didn't move me... For $40 I wanted to be SNATCHED not lightly tugged haha U can do a custom one for the same $40 http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/contour-palette.html

Oh yea not sure if I posted this here but MAC Saddle eyeshadow makes an excellent nose contour shade for us medium brown beauties... I found Blunt to be too ashy and lifeless for my liking... Saddle is warmer w/o being too warm or dark and obvious... Also Brown Script makes a nice transition color when used with Blunt or Embark to blend out and warm up the look for those pretty peach and coral blushes we all will be rocking this summer

Hey ladies! I ordered mine from the Anastasia website. Go to the makeup tab and then individual contour shades. Then on the side it will say "build a palette". Click on that and then you can drag your colors from the left onto the palette. FYI: it would not work on my iPad or my phone, I had to use my computer. The new colors are Mink and Ash Brown. I read somewhere that Ash Brown was darker, so that's why I ordered it. I think I'll probably end up mixing all three contour shades to see if I can make it cooler with the Ash Brown, but darker. The lighter contour shades like Havana and Java matched my skin tone. Macchiato was nice when I swatched it as well. I was torn between that one and Golden Peach. Golden Peach won, lol. The quality of the palette is very nice though.

I'm sorry, that made me LOL. I so needed a laugh right now. I had heard about people using this as a contour but am afraid of the shimmer. Does it have a lot of shimmer? I use and really like the other illuminating powders.

When I look at the powder in the pan, I do see a bit of shimmer, but when applied to my face, the shimmer transforms into that soft sheen that bare, clean skin has. In case that doesn't make sense, let me say this, the 1st time I contoured with it, that lil voice in my head that wants me to be great screamed "RUN TO TARGET AND GET 5 MORE RIGHT NOW!" I didn't cuz a) that heaux crazy & 2) I don't contour that often so this one will last me at least a year. Butterum, every time I'm in Target, I stroll past the Shea Moisture makeup section just to make sure they still got some in stock.

I would check on it too because my Target recently had the illuminating powders on sale so I was worried that they were dc'ing Shea Moisture. They will remove stuff WOC like in a heartbeat around here.
