Wheeeeeeee I got a package today! And it couldn't have come at a better time - I really needed a pick-me-up. I contour (almost) every single day a little bit, usually with NYX Taupe. I've been interested in trying something cooler toned for a while, but there just isn't an abundance of contouring powders out there. I've tried eyeshadows, but they are usually too pigmented and hard to blend out to a nice diffuse shadow.
Even though I *loathe* the packaging of anything that contains an extra little spot for a useless brush, I went for it. Notorious looked like the perfect sculpting powder colour, and I was suckered in. Check it out...
Swatched versus NYX Taupe...
First impressions: Applying it over my current makeup, I am so far loving the effect. It is definitely more grey and pigmented than NYX Taupe, so I have to blend quite a bit and be careful to build the colour instead of whacking a whole bit on. However, the result is *spectacular* cheekbones! Definitely more work, but seems worth it. I will have to test it out further and report back. I will leave an update on this post if you're curious!
Thanks for looking!
