Soap & Glory&trade; Solar Powder&trade; Bronzer 9g
Good for contouring.
This product isn't very shimmery so I use it to contour under my cheekbones. Personally I prefer a little shimmer as I'm very pale-skinned, and I think for my skin tone this comes across a little bold, but luckily I get my brushes to do the hard work!
This apparently is marketed as a bronzer/highlighter but unless you're very tanned, the lighter colour is much too dark to highlight so I tend to use it as a less harsh contour shade (usually my forehead) because contouring my very pale skin is quite a chore.
I've also used it as a tone-corrector because I was given a foundation as a gift which is a little pale (which for me is quite an achievement!) so I use a big brush and sweep a small amount over the top to give myself some colour.
The mirror in the lid is very handy, and it's great that there are two shades if using for contouring.
I think overall this bronzer is quite good, but I'd only purchase again if it's included in an offer as it's quite pricey and there are other bronzers that do a better job for this price.

Natural for pale skin and contour beginners
The reason I gave this product 4 stars is because the densities for both bronzer and highlighter are very different! I would need to press hard and rub multiple times to get colour on my brush, because the bronzer side is so hard! Whereas, the highlighter requires less effort to get product onto the brush. I guess this will be good for contour beginners like me, because you wont accidently contour your face too much.
Also, I felt that the highlighter's granules are rather large and not fine enough. So, it might not give a super natural glow like it was from within.
Otherwise, overall I really really like this product because it gives a natural contour shade for a chinese individual like me :3

Best for light skin tones!
This is my favourite bronzer at the moment for fair to medium skin tones. One side is matte, while the lighter side has a sheen to it (the logo has a glitter spray over that disappears after first use) and it gives the skin a lovely warmth without being orange. I recommend this only to lighter skin tones though, as on darker skin it is a bit too cool-toned and light.
