Kevyn Aucoin 'the sculpting powder' in medium

I've been using the kevyn aucoin 'the sculpting powder' for a while now and i must say i don't know how i lived without it for contouring. The sculpting powder comes in one shade, medium, and i have to say i do think this is a truly universal shade. I've seen really pale people use it, along with people my skin tone and slightly darker. If you have very dark skin then this wont be for you, but i'd recommend using a foundation a few shades darker than your skin tone for contouring anyway as its the safest bet! Anyway, back to the powder, the powder itself is an ashy brown colour and it's very finely milled which makes it look very natural on the skin, very much like a shadow. This product is great for heavy contouring as it never looks too much, but where it really shines is when you use it subtly on natural makeup days. I love contouring, but day to day i never used to do it as it always ended up looking to much or too orange against the rest of my simple makeup. Now that i have this product, i don't have to worry about that at all! It's so natural looking that when applied lightly it just looks like a slight shadow under your cheekbones rather than actual product. The tale tale sign of contouring is when you look at your profile, but with this, its pretty undetectable as being a powder even side on. In the pictures above I've built it up and used bronzer lightly with it so you can see its full effect, and even though this is a daytime look i think it suits it perfectly fine. it also lasts a great deal of time on the skin and doesn't turn patchy throughout the day which is brilliant, i would say it lasts about 8 hours on the skin. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who struggles with contour powders being too dark or too orange, as this is the perfect product to use.

Have you ever tried this product?
