on Shimmer Brick
Well it does have some shimmer, and on more mature skin it may look a bit garish. I suggest you use a matte bronzer instead to contour.

I think that it works good on my checks and chin/neck area. It is not super dark though. You may want a darker bronzer. This is fantastic though for all over complexion and glow. --and great for the eyes! I actually use an eyeliner brush and use it as eyeliner.

The Shimmer brick is very shimmery(as the name indicates :) ) and can make fine line and pores very obvious if applied too much bit I am not sure if it gives the slimming effect to the face because it has way too much shimmer , for the purpose of contouring usually a bronzer with less shimmers are better.Nars Laguna is a great product for that purpose and if you wand something similar to this then Diors Amber light is an excellent product.

This is definitely not a product for contouring your face because of the shimmer. The shimmer is soft if you apply it correctly with a light hand. It can get overly shimmery and unflattering if you apply too much. With that said, to build enough color to slim your face, you'll likely end up building up too much shimmer. I don't think this will help slim your face, but it will add a youthful glow if you add the right amount to your cheeks.
I think it could with application in the right areas....the nose, temples and cheekbones.

yes, this has a bronzing effect. No, it doesn't have TOO much shimmer, and no chuky glitter. If you contour you face correctly, this will not emphasize wrinkles. Hope this helps :)
