NYX Sculpt is a very warm-toned, dark taupe with a semi-matte finish. It is a permanent contour that retails for $5.00 and contains 0.1 oz.

Editor's Review

Tan is described as a "matte soft brown with slight red undertones." It's a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a smoother texture that was slightly firmer to the touch, and it could have been a little more blendable on the skin. I started noticing fading after eight hours of wear. NYX Sculpt (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. Urban Decay Toasted (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Contour (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (P, ) is lighter, warmer. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is lighter. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is lighter. ColourPop Poolside (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Smashbox Bronze (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter.

I absolutely love these little contour powders! I don't own the whole NYX Contour and Highlight palette, but I ordered the singles of Sculpt and Hollow because I was trying to find dupes for Sombre and Subconscious from my KVD Shade+Light palette. I struck oil with these gems! Sculpt is the perfect shade(and dupe for Sombre, if you're looking)! The formula is a bit on the powdery side, just lightly tapping your brush will kick up dust, but it's very smooth. It performs so, so well! The shade/color is perfect and should cover everyone from pale/light to medium in skintone. It looks very natural on, as well. It builds very easily without applying patchy and blends pretty well! I am very much an over-blender, at least I can recognize and admit it! And if you're a bit on the heavy handed side(which I am as well), you can blend and sheer it back out very easily! This powder wears wonderfully until you purposefully remove it! I do wish the pans were a tad bit bigger though(1 & 5/16" in diameter & 5 & 2/16" in circumference)! My Real Techniques Sculpting brush does not fit in the pan! The price on these can't be beat either! Alas, this is a very great contour powder in every way, and I very much recommend and will purchase again!
