Helllloooo everyone! Welcome back to another edition of Bomb or Bust! YAY! Today we are going to be discussing the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer. I have been using this bronzer non-stop since I got it and it has become my newest obsession! If you are interested in hearing my thoughts about this beautiful product, then let’s get to it, shall we?!
I heard about this product from KathleenLights (One of my YouTube obsessions) and she had nothing but good things to say about it! For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I gave up purchasing makeup for Lent. With that being said, My fiance and I were getting groceries one day, and I had mentioned that I was going to buy that bronzer as SOON as Lent was over. Needless to say, when we got home and I was unpacking the groceries, there is was. In one of the bags. He had snuck it in while I wasn’t paying attention. Love him.
So I was super excited to try this out. I immediately opened it and tested the colour on my arm. Ugh – I knew then that this was going to be a new obsession – Possibly a Holy Grail. Let’s get into the details of this amazing product.
Here is the description of the product from the Physician’s Formula website:
- Ultra-luxurious bronzer, infused with Murumuru Butter, delivers a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! Moisturizing wonder features ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and deliver a gorgeous bronze finish.
- Ultra-rich bronzer formula instantly melts into skin, sealing-in moisture to deliver instant and lasting hydration. Incredibly creamy and soft texture combines the best features of a powder and cream bronzer, to deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow unlike any other.
- Infused with a powerful blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize skin, leaving it silky soft.
Doesn’t it just sound good?!
Okay let’s start with the price. I found this at my local grocery store for $19.99. I have paid $80 for foundation before so I thought that $20 was a steal! Especially after I saw how great the colour was! Now onto the scent. YAAAS – It smells like laying on a tropical island, feet in the sand, drink in your hand; Like delicious coconut and heaven. It also comes with a little sponge applicator that looks like maybe it would be meant for contouring. I am not going to lie, I haven’t used the applicator at all. I have brushes that I use, that I know I love and that do exactly what I need them to do. Plus, I didn’t feel like a sponge applicator would be ideal for a powder product.
Anyways, the first time I used it, I knew I was going to be hooked. The formula is amazing. Like it says in the name, it goes on like butter! It is so smooth and creamy; It blends into the skin perfectly. The shade of the bronzer is perfect as well. Currently, seeing as we are just getting over the winter blues, I am PASTY white. During this time of year, when I am not tanned AT ALL, I find it very hard to find a bronzer that isn’t too harsh on my skin tone. This bronzer is not too warm and not too cool, which is perfect; It doesn’t make your skin look too orangey/fake tanned, but it also doesn’t make your skin look grey like a corpse. It’s honestly stunning.
In case you haven’t seen it, I used this bronzer in my 10 Minute Makeup Look video that I posted earlier this week. As you can see in the video, this bronzer just gives my skin a beautiful, subtle, golden glow without looking too fake. I use this for both bronzing and contouring, depending on what look I am going for. Most days, I just throw a bit on my cheeks to give me face some dimension/definition. But it is also perfect for contouring as well, seeing as it isn’t too orangey (I dig a kind of cooler toned contour).
There is no surprise here but I think this product is BOMB! I can see myself using this bronzer for quite sometime. I think it will even be gorgeous in the summer when I do have a bit more colour. If you guys haven’t checked this out yet, I high recommend doing so. This bronzer is so so stunning, you will definitely not be disappointed!
Okay guys, that’s it for this edition of Bomb or Bust! I hope you liked this and learned a little something today! Have you tried this bronzer? What are your thoughts? Do you dig it as much as I do? Let me know!
