One of the great things about the bronzers in this series is that they are perfectly matte which makes them great for contouring. Most people think bronzing and contour are synonymous, but they most definitely are not. Most "bronzers" are used to add depth under the cheek bones and up into the temples so a little shimmer - or a lot as most have - isn't so bad. If, however, you are trying to contour or define the sides of your nose, create a natural looking eye crease, or add depth under your eyebrows, a shimmery powder will make your contouring work look fake.That's why this little guy is an asset. Let's talk about quality, now.
This bronzer is smooth and, surprisingly, not chalky for being a matte bronzer. The only problem I encountered with it, hence why it ended up at the back of my stash, is that it wasn't dark enough for me. I know, I can't believe I typed those words in that order either, but it's true. Too light for me. While it is buildable, the amount I would have to build it to make it noticable would have made it the same shade, just more opaque and not natural by any means. The wear time is great as well. I didn't put it through rigorous testing, but for average wear around the house, on errands, etc., it stayed put!

This is a great matte drug store bronzer, and I highly recommend it if you need a contour powder. Just make sure you get your shade!
