Few beauty products enjoy the perks of being irreplaceable in your makeup bag while being affordable. Physicians Formula’s Murumuru Butter Bronzer is one such that occupies the top slot in every beauty wardrobe. And it is now available in India. After shipping it down from Beauty Bay and iHerb, affordable beauty site, Hok Makeup is now home to this cult label in the country. The site is also stocking a small collection of products from the label – the popular Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20, the skincare winner, Skin Booster Vitamin Shot for Brightening, the well-known Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Cc Curl Care Mascara, and the hugely popular Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner in Universal Nude.
The most interesting cult product however is still the Murumuru Butter Bronzer, priced at Rs 1,200, which can take your cheekbone game higher this year. Known to give you model-esque contouring with an unmistakable bronze goddess look, the most fun bit about this product is its piña colada scent. It is said that one Physicians Formula bronzer sells every 15 seconds in the US, such its its popularity.
The bronzer scores much higher than others in the same genre – we tried it first-hand and know just why. It is buttery, soft, and just melts into the skin. The coverage is high and it’s highly pigmented. But the clincher is how it doesn’t look cakey or thick or powdery. And therein lies the magic of Murumuru Butter Bronzer – the way it adds a layer by covering your pores and smoothens out your skin. There are four shades – the Bronzer, Light Bronzer, Sunkissed Bronzer, and Deep Bronzer.
These bronzers come with amazing skincare benefits as well, what with with the presence of butters like murumuru, cupuaçu, and tucuma, all great at keeping your skin soft and smooth. We have already written about makeup with good skincare ingredients and to be honest, Murumuru Butter Bronzer is the frontrunner when it comes to this trend. A little trick we learnt: You can also use this swirling wave patterned bronzer as a pressed powder if you ever end up buying a shade lighter than your bronzer.
The only drawback we found was that the green sponge applicator that comes with it is not a great pairing – it’s best to work with a beauty blender for best results. Also, we wouldn’t complain if it was available in more shades, but that’s something already on the anvil – we’ve heard that the brand plans to add two more shades to the roster: Butter Bronzer in ‘Sunset Bronzer’ and ‘Sculpting Bronzer’.
