Does a great job!
Tags +Natural looking, contour or sculpting
I use sculpt powder everyday.All the shades are amazing but this review is mainly about Shadester. since it's pretty universal shade.
Shadester works great for people between the shade range of NC35 to NC45. It looks amazing on NC42 but still can be stretch up to the NC45 skin tone for natural effect.
On NC skin, it gives a good shadow effect. It doesn't look like dirt on the face and gives a great uplift to the cheekbones. I prefer using matte powder to contours of the face. It does everything it says in the description but right color selection is very important as per specific skin tone.
Since, it is a matte finish, you can either leave it as is and use highlighter around the high points of eye area or just swipe highlighter on top of the contour to give a shiny contour effect for night events.

Creates the perfect shadow
Tags +Natural looking, Contouring
I ordered the shade Sculpt and it is perfect for my NC20-NC25 skin. I really love it for contouring my cheeks. The thing about these coming just in the pan with no palette.... You don't necessarily need anything other than the actual palette, because they are magnetic and will hold without the inserts. I have 2 singles with inserts, one is the eyeshadow and one is the blush/powder insert and I recently switched to a double palette, keeping my eyeshadows in the insert on their side and the blushes and powders just loose/magnetically adhered to the other side. There is also a clear divider in the double palettes, so they are very convenient. If you are just buying one powder, grab a palette to go with it! They are inexpensive and very much worth it. I would be willing to bet you will add to your collection and will be happy you have it. :)

NOT a Bronzer
Tags +Natural looking, sculpting, Shading
I had been using MAC bronzer to do my contouring and it never quite looked right. I needed a true contouring powder, and the MAC Sculpting Powder was it! I have very fair skin, so I ordered it in the lightest shade, and it is perfect. I also use MAC mineral foundation and the two work beautifully together. I get a full coverage, sculpted look with ease. Of course, I can't stress enough how much the right brush matters: I use the MAC 182 Kabuki brush for foundation and angled powder brush for the contour. I HEART MAC!!

natural looking and sclupting..!
Tags +Natural looking, sculpting your face/cheekbones
Unike other bronzers or sculpting powders, this product is the perfect shade without a reddish undertone, so it looks just natural but gives enough depth to shape and sculpt. Perfect!

Color Swatches don't match actual color! :(
Tags +Natural looking, Contouring
I do like this powder and it does what it needs to do. I bought the sculpt and received it today and it is much lighter than what it appears on the picture. So my contouring won't look like I wanted it to because the powder is too light. I'm NC40-42, so i'll be ordering the shadster instead! But it doesn't have a red undertone so it looks more natural than the Blunt blush I was using!

The Best Contour Powder Ever
Tags +Natural looking, contouring / sculpting the face
I have the lightest one (Bone Beige) and it is the perfect contour color for my N15 skin. The texture is silky, blends well, long lasting. I just ordered one shade darker (Sculpt) for the summer when I am a bit tan. I would not use anything else.

Shadowy
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, sculpting, Shading
I purchased the shadowy shade for my NC30 skin. This is the right amount of brown pigment to sculpt my cheekbones and bridge of my nose. I was looking for a sculpting powder that doesn't look orange, coppery and this was it.
A little goes a long way and if you put too much, it will look muddy.
If I do add too much, I just use a kabuki brush to buff it out.

sculpting powder pro palette
Tags +Natural looking, Shine control, Non-Drying, your cheeks and contouring of course.
This is my new most favorite MAC product now. It's consistency is PERFECT and it's so versatile. If I was in a rush and only had time for one product to swoosh on, it would be this from eyebrows to cheeks. It glides on. It's better than my face powder!! I've got the perfect eye shadow, lipstick and sculpting powder (not to mention the mascara, etc.) and I'm totally happy with these FINALLY.

Right Shade for Contour
Tags +Natural looking
First of all I was looking for the bronzer contour. I have brought other MAC's called "powder blush/pro palette refill pan" in Blunt. It was the wrong shade to contour your face, because it has reddish brown tone and will look like you have "bruise". So I return it and ordered this called "Shadester" its almost similar to "Blunt". But Shadester doesn't have reddish tone and I love it! I have yellowish pale skin or olive pale skin so this is the right color for your contour on check sides and even contour nose. Thanks to the creator of "Shadester".

GREAT!
Tags +Natural looking
These are great for contouring! I use them on a daily basis. I agree that its annoying that they don't come with a case, However, if you don't want to buy the six pallett then you can always use an old blush case. You will need to remove the pan that is already in there but it is very simple!

Absolutely love it!
Tags +sculpting, Contouring
I had previously been using matte bronzers to sculpt my cheeks but after starting to use the MAC sculpting powder, I will never go back to bronzer for sculpting. The sculpting powders are highly pigmented and you need to use just a little to get the perfect sculpted look. They also blend surprisingly well. I use the flat contour brush with the powder and it works perfectly!

cool!
Tags +Natural looking
A nose job for $16.50? YES. Not that there's major problems with this nose, but the sculpting powder is pretty good for giving the effect of a thinner nose and more defined bone structure. great product.

Amazing Contour
Tags +contour
Trust in this contour. It is so finely grained, smooth to blend, and the end result is gorgeous bone structure naturally-NO joke. I'm NW 30-35 using Definitive.

Sculpting Makes a Difference
Tags +Natural looking, Shine control, Contouring, sculpting, round faces, creating cheekbones
I am 40 years old and my face is very round. I've watched many videos about contouring and sculpting techniques and I have to say, this is so easy and is so worth the money and the extra 60 seconds in your makeup routine. The formula is buildable so you can create a subtle illusion for work and a more dramatic look for evening. I have actually incorporated using blush with this effect (which I never wore before) and I am so pleased with what I am seeing in the mirror.

Shadester
Tags +bronzer, contour
I love how there's no shimmers, glitters, specs, nothing. It's a matte powder that applies so smoothly on the skin. With a light hand you experience a soft bronze, go a little heavier and you have a beautiful contour. Must have!

Not much of a difference.
I ordered both Sculpt and Bone Beige, but there isn't really a difference between the two colors, even after comparing them in the sunlight. Based upon the photos, I expected one to be more of a highlighting shade and the other a contouring shade.

Sculpt
Tags +Natural looking
Sculpt is the perfect shade to contour cheekbones for my NC30 skin. It can easily be placed in a old MAC blush container if you don't want to use a pro palette.
