Physicians Formula Brazilian Glow Butter Bronzer ($14.99 for 0.38 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with warm, almost olive undertones paired with a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt soft, dense without being too firmly-pressed in the pan, and blended out easily on my skin. The finish was luminous but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

The formula is supposed to be "ultra-rich" and "melt into skin" with a "creamy and soft texture." They are fairly pigmented with soft, smooth, and lightly creamy textures that are denser but not stiff or difficult to pickup or to apply. The powders sit well on the skin with natural, luminous finishes that don't emphasize skin texture. They tended to last around eight hours on me. They have a very strong, coconut scent to them that is apparent while on the face at times.
