My Thoughts: For only $3, this is a really good buy. One side is a beautiful bronzer with a very subtle shimmer, and on the other side is a soft peach. The bronzer is richly pigmented and worth the purchase on its own. I love it for contouring all fair to medium skin tones. People with a deeper shade of tan and darker, might not find enough color for them to use as a contouring product. I don't find it to be orangey at all, which is perfect. Although, the fact that it does have shimmer in it does eliminate it for my first choice in contouring products. But during the summer when I don't mind a bit of shimmer, it's a great option to bring on my vacations.
I wish the blush was as pigmented and slightly more flattering on myself. I'm not as big a fan of the peachy hue. I personally prefer more pinky tones. This does have a soft golden shimmer through it that gives a subtle glow to the skin, and those with fair skins should be pretty happy with the overall effect. People with more tan skin and darker definitely will find it too chalky and light for them.
Final Verdict: If it's the right shades for your skintone, it's a fantastic way to pare down your makeup bag for travel or touchups!
