First things first. This is the product I used. It’s actually not a contour stick. It’s a makeup multi-stick that can be used on the lips and cheeks. However, the neutral brown shade really suits my skin tone, so I find myself using it for contour more often than not.
As for the formula, it’s pigmented yet creamy, so it makes blending easy. I swipe it on straight from the stick and blend out using either a Beautyblender ($20) or a dense brush.
