I have 4 of these, and taupe is the perfect contour on me, not to grey- not to brown/bronze. The other 3 is Amber, a matte dark pinky peach,-cinnamon, a strong matte orange, in the right amount really beautiful, an so pigmented.- Red -a blue/pinky-toned red, matte and insanely pigmented, a small amount gives the most natural flush of red to the cheeks. undetectable on the skin. In my opinion Amber and red is the most wearable shades for all skintones. Cinnamon is amazing if you use it right. And Taupe is the fool-proof contour. the only thing is the packedging, it could be better, but for the price, the product itself is awesome, and i'm very satisfied. I recommend these to anyone who ask me.
In a haul from goldenappleoferis, she mentioned buying this to use a contour, because she's pale with cool undertones and needs something more ash-toned and less bronze. I have similar skin tones to her, and was on the hunt for a good contour colour. I bought it, and immediately fell in love. It gives enough of a shadow so that it is subtly noticeable, but not so much that it's an obvious line of taupe-brown powder on my face. It blends nicely, and I really want to try a few more colours.
I use this blush to contour. It's an awesome shade to use to contour I use it everyday and a little goes a long way. Nyx is very affordable so it's perfect :)
When I first started to contour, this is the blush I used. It's a really great shade and it doesn't make your face look dirty. The price point is on point, too!
