Makeup by Mario Dark Soft Sculpt Bronzer ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm--more orange--undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage, so it seemed a little more pigmented than actually marketed but may not be a deal-breaker for everyone.
The powder was smooth to the touch, finely-milled and silky with little powderiness present in the pan. The product picked up well with a brush and applied evenly to my skin. I had no trouble blending out the color, and while the finish was very matte, it didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture or appear dry on me. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
