This bronzer is much better for contouring than the Physician's Formula bronzer as the powder is more concentrated and not as shimmery. It gives you a brilliant shadow underneath your cheekbones making you look like a runway model! However, if you are a pro at applying makeup and manage to apply it on your entire face without looking blotchy, then you can achieve a more natural sun kissed look than with the Shimmer Strips.
I purchased the compact in the shade Sunkissed because the other two choices were two brown for me as opposed to this one which has a red undertone. Personally, I would use a real blush brush or contouring brush for application as the brush that comes with it is not effective at all.
So that's why I think your go-to bronzers should be. Nice to have an inexpensive alternative huh?
