nice soft contour
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
im a nc45 and was using swiss chocolate and blunt blush to contour. the blunt is too red for my yellow undertone. the swiss chocolate still works nice when i want a little bit of a deeper contour, but this in the color shadester was PERFECT for that everyday natural contour!! i love to layer my lighter blushes on top of this to make them pop! will definitely repurchase! i bought this in the refill form. i would not use this if youre deeper than nc45 .. this is a true light brown.

Shadowy for NC45 Women
Tags +Color true
I fell into the fad and would use a bronzer or an extremely dark powder/foundation to contour but I was always dissatisfied because the bronzer would turn orange (for women of color) or it looked unnatural and by the end of the day I would look like an Oompa Loompa. So I searched and decided to try Shadowy and I am so glad that I did. It leaves the perfect natural shadow in the contours of your face. I did not purchase a palette for this powder; I keep it in the package and reseal it and it has held up. A little goes a long way too, so try not to be too heavy handed when applying.

Awesome contour and crease/transition eyeshadow.
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I love the shade sculpt for my face and eyes. I have a mixed coloring. My skin tone is warm but my hair and eye color are cool. I need neutral makeup. This shade looks so natural! The best thing is I use it as a transition/crease eyeshadow. My eyes are deepest and small and most crease colors are too pigmented and scary for me. This is the perfect color and light intensity. One of the best products I have ever bought.

Yes! Mac, you read my mind ❤️
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I bought the shade "sculpt" and it's exactly what I was looking for. Being light complected I find it difficult to find a shade that works well, most sculpting shadows are way too warm. Sculpt is cool and almost a grayish tone but in a very good way. I might just buy in bulk in case it ever gets discontinued. So happy I found it!

Watch out
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, palette insert
Although I really do love the Sculpting powders - please do not order a palette refill insert for it - there is a error with the "works well with" tab, and these sculpting pans do NOT work with the insert as they are too big and will not fit. Other than that - the product itself is great.

Natural Sculpt
Tags +Color true
I am very pale and initially went with the Bone Beige shade. That did not show up on even my skin tone. So I exchanged it for the Sculpt. This is amazing. It looks very natural and has that taupe tone to it, rather than a bronze, which I have been searching for with no success until now. it is very easy to work with and blend. I will definitely buy more when I run out.

Sculpt

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.

I use this as a bronzing powder and I will never use anything else again. It's such a natural color with no red or orange pull whatsoever. Please MAC, keep this one forever!

The Best!!!
Tags +Natural looking, Non-Drying
I purchased this as a bronzer and OMG....I can't say enough about it! I have two specific MAC "bronzers," but neither of them give me the effect this sculpting powder does. It is my new HG and I will never use anything else again!

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".

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.

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.

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!

Great contouring color
Tags +Contouring
I have light-medium skin color. I love using sculpt over my foundation to contour. It is not orangey at all. It is perfectly ashy for how I use it. A little goes a long way and I'll be able to use this for a very long time.

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.

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!
