It’s summer, which means tan, tan tan! If you aren’t blessed with naturally tan skin and you’re wise enough to protect your skin from the sun it means bronzer, bronzer, bronzer. I am naturally super pale (verging on blue), so I totally understand the necessity of bronzer to warm up my skin. My newest favorite bronzer is Physicians Formula Bronze Booster.
I bought the shade Medium to Dark because I was worried the Fair shade wouldn’t give me enough color. This drugstore bronzer is mostly matte with just a hint of shimmer. I like that it isn’t 100% matte like my NYX Matte Bronzer because that one is so easy to get heavy-handed with and look streaky.
The medium to dark shade worked great even though I’m so fair. I wear MAC foundations in NW20 and drugstore foundations in Buff Beige for comparison. This bronzer blends out really well, so it works great for contouring, also (if you’re into that sort of fancy schmancy makeup application…I’m still nervous to delve into it!). I mostly just use it sparingly in the hollows of my cheeks, my jawline and neck, and some on my forehead.
I think it gives the perfect amount of bronzed color without appearing too orangey, which is always a struggle for me with bronzer. Another plus is that Physicians Formula Bronzer Booster comes with both a safety seal and packaged in a box. I love this because it helps guarantee that no one has been swiping their fingers through your bronzer before you ever get it home.
At around $15, it’s a little pricier than other drugstore bronzers, but I think it’s worth it. The color and formula are great, and it’s a perfect summer staple! Hope you like it too if you give it a try!
