So being a guy, I need a VERY precise contour, as women's contour is a bit more wider and blended. When I used this with her bronze and glow, it delivered the PERRRRRRFECT line I was looking for- a soft shadow, etched perfectly under the cheekbone. Then I washed it.... and was horrified. The shape was gone! It could no longer etch that oh-so-perfect line oh-so-perfectly anymore. Then I had a flash of genius- rubber bands! So I whipped out the tiny little rubber bands I used on my braces forever ago and put a few on as is dried, especially at the tip- voila! back to the original shape and good as new! But yeah, it carves out your cheekbones perfectly.
