Budget Find: Matte Bronzer from ELF


I have finally found a cheap matte bronzer. I have been in search for a cheap matte bronzer for the longest time. I have even tried using brow powders and eye shadow for contouring. I have tried using darker shades of powders (which is a good idea.. my first contour powder was the darkest elf pressed powder). Looking for a bronzer is really hard for me since those with reddish or orange hints look so fake on my skin. I want that pure brown shade. I was excited when I saw this at ebay. I immediately googled about it and I know I just have to get my hands on this one. 
The shade looks scary muddy brown, perfect from medium skin tones (in my opinion). It has tiny gold flecks which is not visible when you apply the powder.
I use this shade for contouring!! I am so thrilled to find this. I looks so natural on me. It just creates that shadow and depth on my skin without looking too fake. I do not use this as a bronzer because it is really dark on me. Over all, I love love love this powder. It only costs 125 pesos (exlusive of shipping). I hope ELF stands in local malls will have this soon.

What bronzer do you use for contouring? Care to share?

Have a beautiful day everyone!
