Bronzers are a makeup staple year-round. With a quick swipe across the forehead and light tapping into the hollows of your cheeks, you can quickly transform your face. Whether you want to shape and sculpt or create an extra sun-kissed look, a bronzer is the product for the job.

Now that the weather has finally started to break, you may be on the hunt for a new bronzer to add to your collection. There are tons of products to choose from, but Physicians Formula's new Diamond Bronzer is an affordable option whose quality surpasses its price.

Read on to see why the brand's latest launch is perfect for spring.

The Formula 

The Physicians Formula brand is no stranger to bronzers. Its Murumuru Butter Bronzers have reached cult status and have long been favored by beauty bloggers and makeup artists. If you're familiar with them, you know that the buttery formula also offers a rich color payoff. The Diamond Bronzer is the 2.0 version that kicks things up a notch.

Falling somewhere between a cream and powder, this bronzer is a dream to apply. The serum-hybrid formula includes vitamin E to soften the skin and leave it looking healthy. It even has an airy consistency that feels lightweight and luxe. Like a hydrating cream, it melts into the skin seamlessly, a feat that's not always achieved by drugstore cream makeup. 

The Finish

The unique formula of this bronzer delivers a natural look perfect for the fresh-faced aesthetic. Unlike a powder, it gives you a skin-like finish and a subtle glow. You won't find a shimmery or glittery look here. Instead, it adds a wash of color that illuminates your skin. Best of all, you won't have to work too hard to achieve your desired look. The products can easily be applied with your fingers or a brush. Simply tap it in as you would a cream blush or highlighter. You can even use it as a shadow to enhance your eyes.

The Price

Affordability is the name of the game here. Priced at $17, this bronzer is a steal -- regardless of how you plan to use it. The only issue is the shade range. Currently, the Diamond Bronzer comes in two shades, Bronze Gem and Deep Bronze Gem. But if the Murumuru Butter Bronzer is any indication, there's hope for that range to expand.
