Final Verdict:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I was looking for some bronzer because I really didn't have any.  I like using bronzer for contour so I was looking for one that didn't have a lot of shimmer to it.  I decided to try NYC Sun 2 Sun, especially when I saw YouTube guru RenRen recommended.  I bought Terrecota Tan & Bronze Gold.  All the shades are not completely matte.  They have a slight shimmer to them but it's not overtly obvious.  Even though the Sun 2 Sun is an inexpensive bronzer it's not at all cheap.  They are not powdery and have a nice color payoff.
Terrecota Tan:  The darker shade works great as contour for me.  It is a red-ish bronze with a copper shimmer. The lighter shade didn't really show on my skin (MAC NC35).  I could use this as a powder.  The color is more of a beige bronze with a silver shimmer.  To someone with a darker skin tone it could work as a highlight.
Bronze Gold:  The darker shade is a more subtle shade for contour.  It's a light bronze with a gold shimmer.  The gold shade is a yellow-gold with a gold shimmer.  I really like love this shade as a highlight color.  The gold blends in with my skin but in the light it comes out.  It would be a good highlight for those with a warm undertone to their skin.  You can also blend the two colors for an all over face bronzer.
Overall, I would recommend this product.
