CoverGirl Queen Collection Ebony Bronze is a deep brown color with very red undertones. In addition, it has shimmer. Not heavy shimmer, but there's shimmer none the less. Because of this combination, it causes me to have a weird glow in photos.

Most experts recommend using a matte color 2 to 3 shades darker than your skin tone to contour. Ebony Bronze passes the "darker" test, but the fact that it has so much red is a problem. The idea behind contouring is to mimic shadows, and you do this by using a darker shade that has a similar undertone to your own. I have a more golden as opposed to red undertone, so Ebony Bronze isn't natural-looking on me. Let me show you a photo (taken from a previous post) where I'm wearing it along the perimeter of my forehead and beyond:

1) As a crease color. I love using it in my crease (blended upwards)...it adds warmth and depth when I'm going for that naked eye look. For some reason, it just works.
2) Perhaps as a blush (though I rarely wear darker blushes). I think it's okay to use this product on my cheeks....but not along my forehead/temples! :p
... yeah, that's about it for now.
Tell me about your experience with the CoverGirl Queen Collection Ebony bronzer...do you use it to contour?
Thanks for reading
Till next time....
