MAC Nose Pose Cream Colour Base Duo ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) seems to be a highlighting/contouring duo, but of course, it’s very “one-size” and will certainly not fit all or even most. The darker side seemed more like a bronzing color than a contouring one, though some with very warm complexions may prefer the warmth in the deeper shade for contouring. They can also be used on the eyes, as the formula is a multi-use one.
Morocco is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a natural sheen. It was quite pigmented–more opaque than buildable–but it was easy to buff and blend out for sheerer coverage, if desired, without needing much movement so it could be done over foundation, too. The consistency was smooth, emollient without being greasy and sat well on bare skin. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Africa Dream is a light-medium beige with warm, yellow undertones and a natural finish. It had medium to opaque, buildable coverage, depending on whether it was applied with fingertips or a brush with a creamy, emollient texture that was thin but not too thin. It blended in with my skin tone, so it worked more like a concealer on me than a highlighter. It was easy to blend out and lasted for seven and a half hours on me (from what I could tell).
