Honey....this product is it!!! I love how this product is EASY TO BLEND. At first glance, I thought this for sure wasn’t my color but boy was I wrong. The color was sheer and building while more on the cool toned side which is great to contour with since it looks like a natural shadow. I really like the gel formula as this works well on my skin. This product does not pull or smudge my foundation once I apply this. Works very well with other products. Also I love that it’s a stick because it makes the steps very... Read more


So excited to review this product! As a makeup artist, I am constantly asked about contouring, The most important fact I try to impart to my clients is that the contour shade you select should be of a cool tone, to mimic the tone of a natural shadow. This tends to be a challenge for many people, so to find a product that works for so many is truly a relief. Another unique feature is the cooling feel of the product as it glides on the skin. Also, a little goes a long... Read more


Even though this product looks dark, it truly works for all skin tones! It applies very settle and defines your bone structure. Apply in the areas you desire and blend with a brush or your fingers. Great to use for photoshoots!


This product is so light and sheer. It does seem very dark when you open it but it is so easy to blend. My favorite was using in the eye crease, it really makes my eyes pop.


This is my favorite contour stick! It adds dimension, without adding texture to the skin. Gel like formula is very sheer, blendable and easy to work with.


This product is so cool! I'm well aware that it looks a little harsh at first glance but upon application, it's perfect! It's very sheer and buildable to give you a more natural seeming contour.


I love this contour stick! It looks like its gonna be very dark and harsh but it is very sheer and easy to use. I blends out seemlessly. You can build it up for a stronger contour if wanted


I gotta be honest - I'm normally a powder contour fan. Any sticks or creams freak me out - why are they so dramatic and dark?! CAN WE CALM DOWN?! Attending the live demo of this amazing brand put my mind at ease. I was able to see how buildable and drama-free this stick is. Did I buy it? Absolutely. And I LOVE it. This product is so user friendly and buildable. If you're just getting into contouring or have been curious to try but feel like you have no idea what you're doing - start here! And with a...

As a fan of ABH contouring sticks (Fawn and Minx), the color of this contouring cream admittedly frightened me. "How is this going to work on light skin?" I wondered ... until I applied it. Don't panic over the color in the tube. This blends seamlessly because of the water-based, gel formula, looks incredibly nature, and doesn't have a hint of gray in it. It's very wearable and beginner-friendly. If you love Illamasqua's Hydra Veil primer texture, you'll love this as well.


After using this contouring product for a few months, I have to amend my review ... to add a tip that will make it easier for you to use. Try applying this with a cheek brush instead of swiping it directly on your skin. The brush applies and diffuses the product much better and faster. I wish this was my own discovery, but I learned this while watching the education demo with Illamasqua. So helpful!


I can't wait to try this product. It looks like it adds lots of definition to the face. The best part is that its simple to use and gives you a nice natural look!
