Very mediocre. I only bought it because I got it on clearance for 5 bucks! (why I gave it a good rating price-wise) I find it leaves a shiny, plastic looking finish so I need to blend it a lot to tone down the shiny-ness.

The color is ok but nothing special. I can say that I'm happy it's not like some bronzers that are over the top and leave that yucky deep orange finish but that's about it.

All in all just an ok product that I use every now and then when I want a change from my usual blush. I won't repurchase, I got mine cheap but I know this normally is over-priced and it's just not worth it IMO.

I love it, I love everything about it. Mine is in the colors light to medium and it works beautifully. I must admit it does look a little orange/muddy but way better than a lot of other bronzer's I've tried. Because it's aimed at light to medium skin tones it's lightly pigmented so you can build up to a gorgeous glow or to a bronzed sun-kissed tan. It does have shimmers so beware if you're not a big fan of anything sparkly. I personally don't mind it too much but if you're not careful it can get really strange on the skin. Now I must give PF the credit for their packaging, it's so beautiful and luxurious I would be silly enough to carry it around in my purse just for the sake of taking it out and having it near me all the time. The only downfall is the price. Here in Aus, everything is bumped up more than it should be. This was the last one in my local priceline PF bay and was opened (not touched thankfully) so I got $5 off thankfully. Either way I would pay full price and definitely re-purchase it again.

And very average bronzer to me. It isn't bad and doesn't look orange at all. However it is a little difficult to blend out. It's not also good for contouring which is what I like bronzer for the most. I bought this foe about $15 so it's not like I got ripped off. Decent value I would say.

This stuff works great for when Im super fair in the winter and darker in the summer. It looks so unbelievably natural its amazing! I just adore this stuff and i use a big kabuki by ELF to put it everywhere when I have a foundation that is too light and i brush this stuff on and it makes it match my skin so much better!

i have tried numerous bronzers and they're all too orange for my alabaster skin. even the tiniest drop of bare minerals 'warmth' looks fake on me.
i have this in the lightest color (i think it's called light) and it's great. it actually warms up my skin without looking obvious. i use it on a fluffy blush brush and it deposits very nicely. i gave it a 4 only because it tends to wear off after about 6 hours. also, maybe it's just me but i find that physician's formula products can be pretty expensive. i think i paid around $13-14 which is pretty expensive for something at the drugstore. there is a good amount of product though so it's not like you'll be buying this often.

Ok, I have light skin and have tried many bronzers but this is the first I am reviewing. I have a Bobbi Brown bronzer in 'golden light' but it's very pigmented and I have to be careful with it, and in some lighting situations, even with a fan brush I feel like it just looks like I have brown powder on (not that it looks powdery or anything) but it doesn't look tan or warm to me.

This bronzer from Physician's formula seems to be the right tone to add warmth. I am far too light to expect a full on tan from just a bronzer - it never looks natural when I try to do that.

I was on the fence and nearly wanted to try the 'fair to light' but I'm glad I bought this one. It's perfect. The price is up there for drugstore products but it's still cheaper than h/e stuff. Also, I buy at CVS so I can return it if I don't care for it. Sorry, Target.

Oh, and one more thing - although the shimmer is super subtle, I avoid using this on my forehead because it makes me look greasy (I have a very oily t-zone). Otherwise, I can't detect shimmer once it's on.

I'll report back on the brush. I use my Becca fan brush to apply and blend, blend, blend.

Edit: This has become my favorite bronzer to take with me. The half-moon brush in the compartment underneath is actually a useful brush. I still never see shimmer in this when applied. I do notice it adds to shine in the t-zone if I apply it there, so I only do temples and tops of cheekbones for warmth and it looks fantastic.

I just started using bronzer and this is the best! It doesn't look fake or orange just a nice sun-kissed color! if your looking for a simple travel friendly bronzer get this one! I don't use the mini brush that comes with it, I use my bonzer elf brush and works beautifully gives me nice color! I use medium to dark. Its winter now so my asian skin is about medium, not yet tan.. I know some people don't like the packaging but I don't mind it, i think its durable!

My absolute favorite bronzer! I use it to contour and, because I'm so pale, most bronzer s make me look orange and streaky, but since this bronzer is in a lighter color, it looks more natural. The pay off is wonderful so a little goes a long way. I really don't mind the price because its definitely going to last you a while.

I don't normally use bronzers. I have oily skin and discoloration, however this product makes my face look glowy and healthy. Not garish at all.
