Becca Lowlight Sculpting PerfectorBecca Lowlight Sculpting Perfector ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned brown with a hint of gray and a semi-matte finish. MAC Aphrodite’s Shell (LE, $33.00) is less brown, less gray, lighter. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is less yellow. MAC Coffee Walnut (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Nude on Board (LE, $30.00) is warmer, less gray. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s described as “an adaptive contouring cream that combines the warmth of skin-authentic undertones with natural-looking shadows for a sculpted look.” For those who want a forgiving contour that can be applied softly, you may enjoy Becca’s take on it. The creamy nature of the product makes it very easy to blend on the skin, so there are no harsh or obvious edges, and if you feel like it’s too dramatic, you can easily sheer it out further. It’s moderately pigmented, but the coverage is buildable, so one layer won’t give you the kind of color you see in the pan. The consistency is lightweight, non-tacky, and dries down and seems to set fairly well. On me, it lasted about seven hours before starting to separate slightly. I think it’s best for light to medium complexions, as even when layered, it is a subtle product against my skin tone (which is about medium).

There’s a grayish color that runs through it, so I think it works for contouring, but if you have really cool-toned skin, it would be too warm.

I think my next haul is going to be a Sephora online order… There are a few other products I kind of wa NJ ted, but have been putting off since I hate going that route, but this may have put me over the edge.

I checked, but there aren’t any stores in a 25 mile radius that carries it… There are also a couple of other things that have been lingering on my list, I may as well go for those, too, LOL!

How does this compare to the Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder, in terms of color?

This is beautiful on you! I wasn’t too sure about how the shimmer would translate since it’s for contouring but it’s very subtle. I like it! I hope there’s a darker shade for deeper complexions. I’d love to try it!

This looks right up my alley (light-medium). It looks so interesting the combo of cool and warm tones. So excited to test this one out! 🙂

This looks so so dark int he pan and your pictures! The swatches tell otherwise though.. looks more like a tan blush on you!

I’m a little curious about this skin-perfecting claim which so many companies have been touting lately. I like the cream formula, and I’m always on the lookout for the next best thing in the market!

i feel like this colour would be very unnatural as a contour shade, unless you have an extreme warm complexion. but it would work great as an all over bronzer, with a light hand, or a bronzing foundation base.

There’s enough gray in it that it works for a contour on me, and I’m slightly warm but not extremely warm, but I think if you were very cool-toned, this may be too warm.

thanks for that! i was wondering if it’s too yellow, but since you said there’s enough grey then that’s perfect. I’m very warm, so this should work 🙂

I picked this up and I really like it. I tend to have a heavy hand with powder products so I like that I can easily soften the color with my fingers without blending like a mad woman. I definitely want to try other cream contours.

I was looking at this and I am SO glad you did a review on it! I was on the fence on getting this and I think I’ll pass since I have MAC Sculpt

Way too warm for us cool-toned types, but this could work nicely on warmer skin tones. It is definitely subtle – took me a second to see it on you, Christine!

Contouring is one of those techniques that is harder to photograph than blush, LOL! I see it in the mirror and think it’s enough, take photos and not quite.

Oooooh, my local Sephora doesn’t carry Becca but I saw that Ulta is now – I love using creams to contour! Can’t wait to try this. Have you tried Illamasqua Hollow or Senna? Just curious how this compares. Your eye color is gorgeous with this look 😉

I appreciate the colour of this product and think it works perfectly with your complexion. I think it is too yellow for mine. I love to use cream for contour. I find it far easier and more subtle than powder. Nice product. I’ll stick to NARS Altai and Chanel Cheeky which don’t pull my skin sallow.

I’m not really into contouring, I must say. I think I’m sort of countured naturally. I’d like to enhance it a bit some days, but I haven’t found a colour/formula I really like. I’m thinking of trying the Kevyn Aucoin one, whatever it’s called, completely forgot the name. How silly!

Ooh, no, that’s way too warm for me! Having said that, almost everything in the contour department is, LOL, so that’s not really BECCA’s fault 😉

I think it has a nice subtle effect on you 🙂
