It’s easy to use and glides well in the skin without leaving a chalky mark. I have been using powder form contour and highlight products so this type is really new to me. However, I can say that it’s an easy on the go must have for people who are in a hurry but would still want to look polished ;) best for an everyday i-did-contour-but-i-dont-want-to-look-like-i-did-contour type of look- Phew!3 months ago
I'd call this a beginner's contour product. It's okay, but I wouldn't call it a must-have. I like that it's easy to use and handy enough to pick up when on the go. I like the highlighting stick, but the contouring stick is very average. The formula feels very slightly icky on the skin, but if you use a good enough setting powder, I think you'll be fine.3 months ago
I'm a beginner in cream contouring and I bought this because a friend said it's nice. It's nice because even for a beginner like me, I don't find it difficult to use. It's very very creamy almost to the point that it melts when it's super hot--but it's super easy to blend and it blends nicely into my foundation and my skin.3 months ago
didnt like this - i prefer the powder contouring products than a stick version. while easily blendable, i found it hard to use because it blends to invisibility. or maybe im just not good with using sticks. highlighter end is ok but overall, i'll probably go back to using powder contour products.5 months ago
This did not last long on my skin. When freshly applied it looks really good but it starts fading on me at around 3 hour mark, which is really short.. But I guess that's because I'm oily. A quick fix is setting this with another contour powder instead of just using a normal setting powder. Overall, I think this is a nice product, but nothing to write home about.7 months ago
I love this product. You can apply it quickly and it sticks! Perfect for beginners still trying to learn how to contour. You can easily blend it and it will last you for a few hours. Ot isn't oily and it won't cake. This is perfect for a natural look. I really love this producy bht my only problem with this is it doesn't last long. With regular use, mine only lasted a little over a month.7 months ago
