My pores reaction to the bronzers and highlighters containing Mica is quite rapid. Juts few seconds after application my pores expand and the bad skin appearance more than once, forced me to redo my makeup. It is the main reason why I stick to the matte products most of the time.
The Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer from Physicians Formula is one of the products that almost all beauty gurus speak very highly of. In the end, I went against my fear of spending, yet another, €20 on a product that can end up in my donation box. A few weeks later I am obsessed with it!
Makeup With a Skin Care Benefits
In my review of the Shimmer Strips, I mentioned the ideology in the formulation of this brand’s makeup products.
This hypoallergenic bronzer was infused with three types of butter. The Murumuru butter is well known for its moisturising properties. The Cupuacu and Tucuma butter are another skin benefiting ingredients on the list. The formula is oil free and promises not to clog our pores.

The colourful packaging is very well made. It contains a high-quality mirror making the product touch-ups friendly. You can use for it attached sponge if you like.
Do not be afraid of the glow!
The Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer does provide a subtle glow to the skin. It does not make a face overly sheen and keeps the face oils under control. Personally, I haven’t noticed more sebum production in the bronzed areas vs. the only powdered ones. What tends to happen when I use shimmery blushes or bronzers.
It is suitable to use on the bare skin, but I like to use it on top of my mattifying foundations. Otherwise, the bronzer’s glow can make me look too dewy after few hours. But if you have normal skin go ahead and use it on its own. This is the recipe for the Gisele’s Brazilian glowing skin! My friend gave it a try when she was visiting, and it did look stunning even though she has slightly darker skin tone than me.
I like the look and wear time of the Photo Focus™ Foundation from Wet n Wild. But I got myself light shade, so I apply this bronzer all over my face on top of the powder, to adjust the colour. I layered up the colour in the strategic places like cheeks, nose for the picture above. The bronzer gives the appearance of very healthy skin. You can achieve the ultimate glow effect by adding even more product.
This bronzer has a silky texture, and it is easy to blend, even if you grab too much product at once. Durability is fantastic; it wears lovely even with very high temperatures outside.
It is unique consistency. I understand why so many people love it. I also like how it look as an eyeshadow. It makes fabulous transition shade!
Overall, the Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer is oily skin approved!
I got my Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer at Boozyshop (makeup retailer in Benelux, Europe).
