Contour

Salt New York Contour Sculpt and Bronze Crème Tint ($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light brown with muted, almost warm olive undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation–to medium with two to three layers–that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out effortlessly.

The formula was very forgiving and definitely was conducive to being used on its own over bare skin or on top of foundation. The texture was lightweight, thin with moderate slip that spread well. It stayed on nicely for seven hours before showing signs of moving a bit on my skin.

Also: I was a little puzzled that this shade was called “Contour,” while all the other shades were named Light, Medium, Deep, etc. Obviously, this shade is far from being a contour shade on all skin tones!

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.15 oz. - $106.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "buttery soft, easy to blend" and is supposed to have "sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, skin-like finish." Though it's available in three types--highlighter, contour/bronzer, and blush--they formulas do not differ dramatically in terms of performance and feel.

It had sheer coverage that was buildable to more medium coverage, but getting full-on opacity didn't seem like it was really in the realm of possibilities, so those who either need or want greater, truer-to-pan coverage may not find it as workable. I'd recommend sticking with deeper shades for those who need or want more coverage, too, as the lighter shades were less buildable.

As a cheek product, the formula applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin as well as patted over base products as it wasn't a formula prone to lifting up complexion products. The finish was dewier, though it seemed to soften a bit after an hour or so of wear. They wear was between six and seven hours before there was noticeable fading and/or light movement/slide. I had the best wear when applied over a more matte foundation as compared to bare skin or a dewier/more luminous foundation choice.

I agree with you; the name “Contour” only makes sense for lt.-med. or lighter. It sure wouldn’t be a contour on me! I’d have liked to have seen “contour” shades offered up in at least 3-4 depths.

I’m pretty sure it’s a mix of two shades of La Mer’s Soft Fluid foundation with a little bit of Natasha Denona Face Glow (discontinued formula)!
