Fenty Beauty Amber Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light taupe with a satin-matte finish with neutral-to-cool undertones. It seemed to have a more true, neutral undertone when blended out enough (along the edges), but the color was a bit grayish. This particular shade was listed as a contour shade, though I'm curious if any cooler-toned folks might try it as a muted bronzer!
Applied with a moderately-dense, angled brush or fingertips, it had more semi-sheer to medium coverage in a single layer and then built up to more opaque coverage with two to three layers. For true, sheer coverage in one layer, I'd recommend a lighter hand (duh) or a stippling brush. The formula has to be spread when applied, so it naturally sheers out, even when applied more heavily, but did still seem a little more pigmented than true "sheer" coverage would be.
The consistency was creamy with moderate slip, but it didn't feel overly slippery or greasy, which ensured it was easy to work with. The gel-cream feel helped it spread well over bare skin as well as over foundation (without lifting it up or creating patchiness). It dried down but retained a skin-like finish, not quite matte but not shimmery either, and looked a bit luminous despite drying down. This shade lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
