Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Light by Physician's Formula

Disclaimer: I purchased this.
Physician's Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer ($14.99) has gotten a lot of love from the beauty world, so when there was a 40% off sale going on at my local Rite Aid back in October, I picked the Light Butter Bronzer. After using it for close to two months, I thought it was time to add my thoughts to the mix.
First off, you are getting a generous 11 grams of product for your money. The packaging is classic Physician's Formula, which means it's a bit on the bulky side with an applicator stored in a bottom compartment.
The applicator is foam and does do a nice job of picking up product, but I prefer to use a brush. Using a brush does kick up some powder, but I'm okay with that. The Butter Bronzer does not look powdery on the skin in the least, which could be because it contains several different "butters", namely Murumuru, Cupuacu, and Tucuma butters. I've linked each butter to more information about them, but one interesting takeaway is that both Murumura and Tucuma are referred to as "vegetable silicones", in that they leave a protective film on the skin without clogging pores. I like!
The Butter Bronzers are available in two shades, but my Rite Aid only had the Light in stock. It's definitely more suited for those with fair/light complexions, and I like how easily it blends into my skin for a touch of color without looking obvious or overly ruddy in tone. I do use this to contour as well, and it also makes for a nice eyelid shade, especially as a subtle crease contour.
Overall, I think the Butter Bronzers are worth the hype! I almost picked up the darker version during Ulta's Black Friday sale, as all of the Physician Formula products were 50% off. I restrained myself as the lighter shade is working quite well for me, plus I have to draw the line somewhere. It's definitely been conspicuous consumption season around here.

  1. This thing is fun, I just bought it and it is cool seeing these Brazilian butters being incorporated into commercial products.
