Packaging: 9/10

This sculpting powder comes in a dark red, plastic, rectangular, thin, light-weight compact that flips open and contains a mirror and brush inside.

Quality: 9.75/10

This sculpting powder’s color truly is perfect for creating shadows on the face. That’s because the color isn’t too red or orange. Instead, it’s more neutral and leans grey, which is ideal for creating shadows on the face for contouring. The color looks pretty light in the pan, but it darkens my NC20-25 skin quickly. Depending on whether you use a light or heavy hand, I can see this color working on people with fair to medium skin.

The formula is also not too stiff/dry/chalky or soft/crumbly. The powder blends evenly and smoothly over the skin and leaves a matte finish.

Ease of Use: 9.8/10

This powder blends into the skin evenly without requiring extra buffing.

Price: 7/10

For $42.00 you get 0.23 ounces (6.5 grams) of product. This is significantly less product compared to other bronzing powders at the same price point.
