Physicians Formula Endless Summer Butter Bronzer ($14.99 for 0.38 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a satin sheen. It had rich color coverage in one pass, though the texture was denser, lightly creamy, and smooth to the touch, which made it easier to use a lighter hand for more gradual coverage if preferred. The bronzer applied evenly to my skin and blended out with little effort. There was a natural sheen to the finish–not overtly shimmery but more than semi-matte–and the red undertone became more apparent as I buffed the product outward. It stayed on well for eight and a half 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.
