Today i’ll be reviewing one of my ‘MISS’ products. I remember seeing this Physicians Formula Bronzer on Ebay early last year…while discussing it, A did mention that it didn’t seem to be a bronzer..But did I listen? No…I was too enthralled by the pyramid shape and the packaging to think about anything else. Now I wish I’d listened. I’d have saved some cash and avoided some heartbreak too!

My take on the Physicians Formula Baked Pyramid Matte Bronzer:
The bronzer comes in a compact form with a flat base and the pyramid shaped lid which is see through. I find this a bit irritating since it becomes hard to store it.
I have the lighter variant which really doesn’t work for me as a bronzer. Infact, I can’t see this shade working as a bronzer for pale skinned girls either! Hence, I end up using this as a compact powder/ finishing powder.
It’s completely matte and does provide medium coverage which is sort of a saving grace. It mattifies the skin and oily skinned girls would probably love this a lot.
The texture is smooth and not chalky thankfully and it even stays on for about 3-4hrs which is decent for a compact powder. I won’t refute that I’m quite disappointed by this product since it didn’t measure up to my expectations, but I suppose I shouldn’t judge this too harshly since it works fine as a setting powder. I’d honestly never re-purchase this though….It’s like ‘Khoda pahaad aur nikla chooha!’ case which I’d like to shove into the back of my mind!
