As someone who has never knowingly contoured, I’m repurposing this late-to-the-trend Quickie Contour Stick from Benefit as a bonne mine creme-to-powder bronzer, much as I’ve done with the MAC Concealer Stick.
I’ve got to say that I love the packaging – it’s just fun and a bit glam and really suits the mood of the product inside and in the same vein as the Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer. The product itself is a little on the orange toned side at first glance but it’s obviously going to depend upon your skin tone in the first place. I’ve used this lightly and it’s fine on my olive tones but I’m not sure that it’s going to work on very dark or very light tones – it’s basically a stick version of the same tone as Hoola Powder Bronzer.
It’s swatched at intensity here but if you’re a seasoned contourer, you can tell straight away whether it’s right or not. I don’t find this too powdery and like the flexibility of a creme, but this is pretty much a stick bronzere/blush for me, rather than a contour. It’s launching in June for £23.50.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
