"i also use it as a very lightweight and apparently very natural eye shadow, brow shadows to make my brows stand out and just a tiny bit to accentuate the dimple in my chin"
- Sephora User
"heavy contouring looks crazy and super weird in real life and it's just nit my style"
- Sephora User
"smooth and soft texture that blends very well, no unnatural powdery shimmer and glimmer like most other brands"
- Sephora User
"completely matte, buttery soft texture and the most incredible shade that works on so many skin tones"
- Nk User
"pros: perfect shade for medium skin tones compact size, great for travel beautiful packaging smooth texture pigmented cons: price for the amount you get can get powdery easy to get carried away i would certainly recommend this powder if you're a contour-fiend like me"
- Sephora User
"however, the texture of this product is creamier and less powdery"

So yes, this product is small but it lasts a long time! I use this almost every day to set my cream contour and it lasted me a year if not longer. It’s got good pigmentation and blends beautifully. However I just re-ordered it is NOT THE SAME COLOR! I use the medium shade and it WAS the perfect neutral-taupe shade. The one I just got is NOT taupe, it’s a warmer orangish shade. Really disappointed because this was seriously the best contour powder but they’ve changed the colors :(

A year ago, contouring was a mystery to me. I knew it as something that made models in pictures look completely different or something that was done by the contestants on Ru Paul's Drag Race (and I can only dream of being that fabulous).I was frustrated because other people seemed to be able to apply makeup in a way that would completely change the shape of their face and I couldn't figure out how. Then I started to watch some contouring tutorials and realised that was how. So what the heck do I buy do it on my own face?!First advice I got was "any bronzer will do". This is great advice... if it's Halloween and you want to be a tiger.Next, I was told to try Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. This is actually a decent product and I've found it good for a very subtle contour or for when my skin has a bit of a tan (I'm so pale that "tan" on my skin is "pale" to anyone else, mind you). But it wasn't giving me the amazing results I kept seeing in tutorials.I was online browsing here (the kind where I totally pinky swear to myself I won't buy anything) when I came across this. "No orange tones" was music to my fair-skinned, cool-toned ears. £35 though? I'm sure I'm not the only one on here who spends more than they should on beauty products, but this was stretching it a bit. So, I ever-so-sensibly walked away. Then came back an hour later and ordered it (that was a tough hour).This stuff is AMAZING! The trick is to blend, blend, blend. I apply it with an angled contour brush, then blend with a blusher brush (I blend this out more than anything else I use because it will look really bad if you don't). I use it on my cheeks, chin and nose. And I now have those face-changing results I wanted.It's very highly pigmented, so use sparingly. But once you get the hang of it, you'll be giving them Audrey Hepburn realness! « less

I am very fair with pink undertones and I've been searching for the perfect contour bronzer for my complexion. This one in light is a winner for me; highly pigmented but easy to blend for a natural look. I did receive a mini of the medium shade and it's beautiful even though I can only use a very light hand with it. The formula sits nicely on my dry skin and lasts all day. It's the only bronzer I've used that I don't feel silly in (I have a round face and I feel rather silly with harsh lines on the side of my face) I don't care much for the packaging but the product inside is perfect
