As you know I really do like the Tarte Sculptor sticks. As far as cream contour goes. I use concealers as cream highlighters so I don't really buy into the whole cream contour kit. So I got one of these as a sample/promotion in the lightest shades. It comes in 3 shades and I really liked the one I got even though it was lighter than I usually preferred. The undertone was really nice though. So when I seen it was running out I got another one in the darkest shade which is 3. Super dark huh? Yes I knew it was gonna be this dark, so no it wasn't a mistake. I wanted to try a super dark cream contour because when blended out cream contour mimics shadow better than anything so thus I wanted the darkest color. Especially since it was a cool brown.
These two swatches are shade 1 and shade 3. There's a huge difference but I can use both of them. The lighter one looks a little more bronze but I can set it with a contour powder and have a nice contour going on. The darker one I use the lightest contour powder I have to set it. I don't go overboard though with powder, I set it lightly. So that's how I use the two of them.
