            I use this product as a bronzer, of course. I've only used it once but I applied it with too heavy of a hand, and it made it hard to blend. I feel as if I used a lighter hand and an actual brush besides the one it came with, I would enjoy it more.

                  Love this product pigment wise. I use it for contouring and absolutely love the it. Does come across as a dark orange or cakey look when applied. Should use a different brush other than what it comes with for a smaller amount used each time.

                      The only reason why I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 is because it's so pigmented that it's almost TOO pigmented. But it blends very well. Be very light handed.

                            Here's Benefit's official brand response:

                            "Benefit does not test our products on animals.

                            Since 1989, the Perfumes & Cosmetics companies of LVMH group (including Benefit Cosmetics) have not performed any tests on animals for our products - this was implemented long before the 2013 official ban set by the European Union.

                            We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We're playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the "Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing" in the United States. We also actively participate in validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe. We are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our top priority.

                            We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing."
