The bottle has a pump applicator which is nice and sanitary but can be kind of a pain as it usually dispenses more than you really need. A little of this stuff goes a long way. It is sheer and shimmery and an orangey bronze color. I certainly wouldn't grab 3 if you have cool toned skin.
Overall, I would definitely look into the fluid sheer. They look gorgeous and last a pretty long time. I could see this working as a great highlighter for darker skin tones. If 3 isn't for you, there are plenty of other colors, both in a more highlighter type color and in other bronzer type colors.
