Surprisingly Disappointed…:(
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 2, 2014   

I received this sculpting powder the other day and the color is beautiful and not orange at all however it will not last more than 2 weeks with the product's consistency. Its so messy and will not stay packed with ANY brush. I had the previous sculpting power in Medium and it wasn't like this at all. Moreover, the new packaging comes with less product. Overall, disappointed and sad because I couldn't live without before. Candlelit, on the other hand, is beautiful and perfect, but you could substitute an Urban Decay eyeshadow for the same effects and half the price.

Fantastic
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 23, 2014   

I have been seeking out the perfect contouring shade for quite some time. Some were too orange, or they ended up looking more like dirt instead of giving the look I was after. After being a fan of Kevyn Aucoin's books, I felt like this was worth taking a risk on buying. Boy, am I glad I did. I love the look, subtle yet enough to give you that supermodel bone structure. I use MAC brushes to blend and it always does an amazing job. I bought the candlelight powder to go with the contouring powder to do a highlight and both of them combined really amp up your everyday face. I would recommend this product for sure, as well as the powder highlighter by Mr. Aucoin... a true makeup genius.

Aucoin was the best
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 7, 2013   

He was the best at what he did. A true genius as well as an artist. This product is wonderful in beautifying the shadows and shape of your face. A must for anyone interested in professional quality makeup.

Blend!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 24, 2013   

Finally a sculpting powder that does not make me look orange. You do have to apply lightly and blend, then reapply and blend. Then blend so you don't see a line. The subtle contour is great.

I have incredibly pale skin with neutral/yellow undertones and have always found it hard to find a true contour for my cheeks as most products look like a wash of orange on me. "The Sculpting Powder" is perfect! I did a lot of research before purchasing it and I must say I'm so pleased with my decision to pull the trigger. It is just cool enough to cast a shade, yet not so grey it makes my face look dirty. I also understand that it works well on many skin tones. Begin with a light hand and slowly build the color if necessary as it is quite pigmented and can look overdone easily.

not orange, no shimmer; should be better-wearing
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 13, 2013   

I love this sculpting powder. I have VERY sensitive skin and only wear Bare Minerals and Nars powders besides this product; it has not broken me out or caused irritation. It's the best SHADE of sculpting powder I have found. Not orangey, reddish brown, or shimmery. Gives a good "shadow" color for contouring face/nose/jawline. I have very fair (though not porcelain) skin in winter, and medium/tan in summer. I look best in cool colors. If you're like me give it a try; I bet it would work well for other skin tones as well. My one complaint is about the wear of this product - I wish it would go on a litle more evenly (less streaking), and less settling into pores. I use it daily but in the areas where I apply q fair amount to get good shading (i.e. sides of wide nose) it can settle in pores immediately and look "dirty". It's not so much a long-wearing issue as smoothness of application, though I wish it was just a bit more matte (absorbing oil) long term, too. Still best I've found - I am also going to TRY Mac sculpting powders this month. About the only sculpter/bronzer i haven't tried bc you have order direct from the company and no free returns.

The best for contour
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 23, 2013   

I love this sculpting powder. Searched everywhere for a powder that was strictly for contouring and everywhere i went they would always recommend me a bronzer or a shade darker then my powder/foundation. But it always ended being too Warm with Red undertones. This has none of that what so ever.. It creates a nice shadow. I like to wear it with bronzer layered on top of it. Only need a little bit of product for it goes long way. It's expensive but is well worth the money. Should have bought it when I first heard of this product.

cool-toned contour
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 4, 2013   

This is my go-to contouring powder. It comes across more subtly than it looks in the pan, and blends out quite nicely. I much prefer this to the coveted Chanel Notorious which I found to be patchy and not as flattering as this one.

Awesome

This is pricey and comes in a very small amount but the grayish color makes sculpting look very natural.

Simply the best!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 6, 2012   

I agree with all other reviewers. This is the best contouring powder I have ever used. Way better than any bronzer since it doesn't turn orange or brown. But mimics exactly the gray of shadows. Try and you won't be disappointed. Hope they never discontinue this!

Sculpting Powder
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 8, 2012   

First, I have to say that I really liked the free shipping provided by Nordstrom. I thought the package would take a while to arrive, but it arrived within 3-5 days. The product itself is an ashy grey color. The color is the reason why I bought it. It mimics real shadow on the face. The product is powdery (almost like a face powder) and the color pigmentation is not very strong. I like that you have to work in layers to get the sculpted cheekbones look because the last thing you want is a "snicker orange stripes" on the sides of your face even after blending out. Lastly, because of its matte natural finish, this product films and photographs beautifully.

Incredible!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 4, 2012   

This sculpting powder is incredible. So much better than bronzers which often do not look natural. This color blends and creates just the right amount of definition to recede and sculpt the cheekbone. It is sheer and looks natural. Suck in your cheeks and sweep the brush just below your cheekbones in the crease from the center to the hairline. Sweep the brush back and forth a few times, using more sculpting powder as needed. You can also use this powder to slim the nose or define the jawline. After I apply a light dust of pink blush to the apples of the chees, I use Celestial powder just above my natural cheekbone to highlight. The combination of the powders creates a nice cheekbone. The powder is finely milled, blends easily and lasts. It is a MUST HAVE.

Cheekbones!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 20, 2012   

I love this contour powder. I am an Asian with a round face and no cheekbones... until now. I love how the powder blends in with my complexion creating a subtle and natural look of a skinnier face. It is well pigmented and has no reddish tone. I use this powder daily with Kevyn Aucoin Beauty 'The Celestial' Powder. These two products are my HG products.
