The Subtle (& Unexpected) Best Bargain Contour Product

For a couple of months now I have had a go to contour product that I cannot put down, so I thought it would be about time I shared! The Colour Tattoo cream shadow in On and On Bronze has long been a holy grail item in my makeup bag, I wore it pretty much every day last winter for a subtle, low maintenance shimmery eye look. Then recently I was reading a celeb mag, Heat or something similar, which rated this as a contour product. My initial thought was 'no way' - who wants a mega shimmery contour? How would that even work?
Then, on a particularly adventurous makeup day I decided to give it a go. I have not looked back. Okay I sound really dramatic here but this tip is the best makeup tip ever IMHO. I dip my finger in the pot, then transfer that to my 'Expert Face Brush' by Real Techniques before sweeping it in the places I like it (temples, cheek bones, jaw line) and blending it in. It doesn't look sparkly - just like a perfect fresh and healthy glow with epic staying power for a cream. Also, the blend-ability and cool taupe-y tone mean I no longer have to worry about the super obvious contour look, or that annoying thing when sometimes powder looks fake and muddy. It's all good for a fiver!
