Hey! I have been using this stick for 9 months know and love it. It took some time to learn to use it right. I put it on first, then a light layer of foundation powder, and then I finish off with a little contour powder following the pattern is drawn earlier with this pen. This creates a softer, more subtle contour that's perfect for normal women going about their every day lives! :)
I'm not sure which products you used to
match it up to, but I will say this product is good for light contouring! If you like a really heavy contour, then this stick probably isn't for you! I like it, though, for a nice, everyday natural look.
