This is my favorite bronzer! I have a round face so I like to contour it with a matte bronzer. This bronzer works great for contouring and the shade "light bronzer" looks very natural on my NC25 skin. The amount of pigmentation is just right so that it's hard to go overboard. I also like that it has a physical sunscreen (3% titanium dioxide) built in. I used to hate that Physician's Formula powders would have a separate compartment for the brush, but now I throw the included brush away and use that compartment to store things like earrings, fake eyelashes, etc.
I've bought this twice and the lid broke both times (within the first month) so yeah, fail. Furthermore, the packaging is bulky. It's a decent bronzer but for the price I'm sure I can find a better one as I don't find this one to be very pigmented or anything special. It was about $12 and not worth it. Physician's Formula products are so hit or miss and at the more expensive end of the drugstore price scale.
Meh, this stuff is alright. Nothing special. I used this for years when I was an NC15-NC20 but now that I am an NC 35 it doesn't do anything for my skin. I now use Benefit's Hoola or Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. Those are a THOUSAND times better than this. Don't get me wrong, this stuff is decent but that's all it is. It's very generic, nothing special, and sometimes it can pull a little orange or a little yellow. It's kind of hard to describe. It's much better then half of the other drug store bronzers out there and it isn't packed with glitter so that's a definite plus but this stuff falls short in almost every other aspect. It retails from anywhere to 14$-17$ depending n where you purchase it from. It's not a horrible bronzer, but there are definitely better ones out there even in drug stores. I usually like Physician's Formula bronzers but this one sort of fell short. It's sort of too pigmented but not enough? it's weird, and it's really powdery and accentuates the texture of my skin and hairs on my face in an unflattering way. If you pay 15$ more you can purchase Hoola from Benefit which would be an amazing alternative if you have lighter skin.
I got this at walmart for 11 dollars a few weeks ago, and since i have pinkish undertones (i burn but that turns into a tan the next day or so) I always have SPF on my face from my moisturizer to my BB cream and now my bronzer!:) I think the packaging is really cute and i dont mind paying 11 dollars for this because theres alot of product in there! as for the color it doesnt make me look orange but i do have to put a bit more on for it too show up which is fine. I dont wear bronzer on just normal days but when i go to the beach or movies this is my go-to!! If you are looking for a bronzer that isnt so harsh maybe for school this would definetly work for you!:)
Nice bronzer but shows up a bit yellow-brown on me (NW15). It isn't super pigmented, which I think is good in this case, since its hard to go overboard with it being a lighter bronzer. Works well for contouring as it is (almost) completely matte. The bulky compact sucks and the brush is useless. I like that it has spf. A bit expensive (around $12) but not too bad compared to some highend bronzers.
I am a big fan of Physician's Formula bronzers, and haven't come across one yet I didn't like. Their light shades always look natural, they have excellent lasting ability and they never clog my pores.
Solar Powder, though not my favorite, is no exception. I tried it because I was running out of my regular bronzer and thought this would be a great one for summer, since I wear bronzer all over my face and neck every day. Having SPF built into my normal makeup routine is a great bonus. This formula is a fine powder which gives fairly natural looking color, but it is a wee bit more orange than any others I have tried from PF (most of which are not orange at all). No sparkle or shimmer to this one, which is another reason I rated it just a 3, because I like a little bit of shimmer to blur the blending. This one is slightly too matte for my taste, so it doesn't blend quite as well and can look somewhat muddy/makeup-y.
On the plus side though, this one isn't just available at Ulta, it is at drug stores as well, unlike some of the other bronzers from PF which can be hard to find. Try this one perhaps if you can't remember to put your sunblock on every day, aren't too fair (I think the oranginess would be less of a problem on those who aren't as pale as I am), and prefer a matte look.
I really like this bronzer, It goes on smooth, not that noticeable, matte, and it gives you a natural tan color. I used to use NARS Laguna bronzer and IMHO this is very similar, except the price of course. For reference I am NARS Santa Fe (maybe NW 25-30) and use this bronzer in Light.
HG for my pale, cool skin (NW10). It's matte, it's pigmented, and best of all I don't look the least bit orange with it! Fortunately the lighter side takes up the majority of the pan - this color is the easiest to use. I use a bit of the dark side for contouring. Most days I just sweep my brush over everything and apply lightly all over my face, emphasizing the nose, cheekbone hollows, and hairline. The lid to mine broke so I can't take it anywhere now, but I've still got a TON left after 2 years and so I just keep it at home and use it. Get this if you can still find it!
This bronzer is a bit expensive for me so I wouldn't buy it again. I've had it for a while though. I like it, it doesn't make me look orange which a shocker!
Bought this on sale - otherwise would never have tried it. Have light skin with yellow undertones. This is a really useful summer tint for me - after applying sunscreen, i can brush it over my face, using a little more of the darker shade near jawline, and the lighter color on eye area, or to camouflage any redness around the nose. Then use a bit of powder blush to to liven up the cheeks, as this has no red or pink at all, so you could look a bit sallow. It does not change color, and looks pretty natural in the sun.
