Honest reviews


This is NOT what you get

I purchased earlier this year and after a lot of problems with technique, I finally found a way to make it work for me. I reordered recently. It was to be a 2nd day ship. It arrived 5 days late and poorly packaged in an envelope. Then it was NOT what you see here. It was not .23 oz / 6.5G. It was half that. I am returning because it smacks of fraud when you do not get what you ordered. I have since ordered it from It is the smaller version but it is not as expensive as this bait ‘n’ switch item. Dermstore has free 2 day ship and you can also get 10% off with promo code BZDISCOUNT. I’m tired of merchants on this site sending something other than is described and pictured. I just sent another order back for this same reason. Amazon, please do something about this.

This is AWESOME! its great because it works on darker skin tones… i think light to medium to medium-dark. It just looks realistic and as thought you just have a shadow, which is what you are looking for when conturing your face.. you want it to look as real as possible, and this does the trick. Love It.. recommended to anyone looking for a great sculpting powder.

Good stuff!

Great contour powder! Perfect color! Quality product! I would say the best contour powder out there. This brand is pricy but worth it.

Best Contour Powder EVER!

Awesome contour powder. Very easy to blend, payoff is great. The color is perfect for light-medium skin tones and swatches a grey-brown shade that is precisely what you need for a contour color. Shadows are naturally more of a grey so traditional bronzers aren’t the best for contouring in my opinion. The texture is very light, soft, buttery. It’s not powdery and there is no fall out. Tap your brush in gently and apply color–no waste. It lasts all day. This is a pricey gem but definitely worth the purchase price. I can see this being a staple in my kit. Will definitely repurchase.

Beautiful for cool tones

This is great for contouring. As others note, it’s a cool-toned brown, so not as good for bronzing, but will give a nice shadow under cheekbones. And I love the compact. It’s elegant and tiny, which makes it so portable for travel. Most bronzers seem to come in huge compacts or unworkable little cardboard boxes that do not travel. For a weekend trip, this can easily fit in any makeup bag and allow me to get dimension for an evening look without bringing a lot of heavy, cumbersome makeup gear.

just what I was looking for

I would recommend this product to anyone that’s in the mood for that chiseled sculpted look. It really is that perfect natural contour shade. If you have very fair to medium or olive skin the medium sculpting powder would work best for you.

holy cheek bones

I went from a woman wishing for check bones to feeling totally defined. I absolutely love this sculpting powder! The grey tone makes it look very natural look while leaving you feeling totally defined.

Love it.

I have an olive toned medium skin. This powder doesn’t leave me a trace on the face but people did say my face is smaller on the days I wear it. Great for me.

Mine actually came with a brush rather than a sponge, but I prefer a brush so woo hoo. The color does not look anything like the photo, which again is good in my opinion. 🙂 I am light skinned but not super pale so went with the medium for contour.
