For my skin tone, it's too dark to use as an all over bronzer without looking like I was outside making mud pies with my sons, but it does work really really well as a contouring shade. I haven't had the opportunity to use in a dark skintone to see how well it shows up, but you can find tons of video reviews on YouTube featuring women of all ethnicities.

It's a really nice matte finish, which I love. Bronzers with shimmer used all over the face can come across a bit disco-ball if you're trying for "color". So as a contour product, it's right up there with my all time favorite- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. If it smelled like the tropics, I'd almost rate it a #1 in my book.
