There is a buzz in the beauty world about a new taupe/grey contouring powder. That buzz said “Get it. You need it. Must have. Iloveitsomuch. This stuff is a game changer.” I almost literally ran to the store to buy the powder — Chanel Notorious Ombre Contraste ($48) — after hearing that it’s available in Holt Renfrew Chanel counters across Canada.

Why is this product such a game changer, you ask? The grey tones, instead of the usual brown, mimics shadows of the face perfectly. It is meant to be worn all as an eyeshadow or face contour powder). Notorious sculpts the face to perfection. Want a deeper eye crease? Want a skinnier nose (without an actual nose job)? Want strong cheekbones and jaw line? Notorious can help with that. For reference, my skin tone is around MAC NC37-40 or NARS Barcelona.
