I recently got the Cover FX Contour Kit in N Medium. I'm actually very fair right now but seeing as how summer is coming i new I could get away with the medium if I'm fair and even better if I'm tan. The highlighting shades weren't the issue anyway, I like my contour to be darker and more dramatic. I feel like if I want something subtle I'll use a bronzer and not bother with cream contour because with cream contour you need to set it with contour powders so if I'm going to put in the extra work then I want to have an awesome contour going on. That's just me though.
As for how I really feel about the product: it's a really awesome formula and really great size, you get a lot for the cost. However, Im not the biggest fan of "warm" contours that make you're face just look bronzey and what not. I prefer cooler tones.
So I love the formula, they blend like a dream, but even with going a shade darker in tone I still came out with the bronzey tan look instead of contoured. I don't want anything crazy like hard lines and stuff but this was soooo warm that literally it looked like I had been to the beach. Which is totally awesome for those who like I said want something natural and subtle but it's just not my favorite. It's great quality though and great formula, it has lots of different options for pink, neutral, and golden undertones. All of those though seem to be very warm in the contour area.
The highlighter on this was more silvery to me but I liked it and it had color to it which I also liked. It wasn't some sheer sparkle it reminded me so much of Becca Opal highlighter. The matte highlighter was still light enough even with me getting the medium to highlight my face especially when I did contour.
I used the Beauty Blender with it and it worked great. To balance it out I set it with a cool toned contour powder like Fawn from Anastasia and it did help but like I said it just wasn't the color I was looking for.
These are $48 on Sephora or Cover FX if you have a pro membership with Cover FX you can use it on this also.
