Benefit Hoola Bronzer

There are a few hyped beauty products that I’ve been meaning to get my hands on for years, and Benefit Hoola was definitely one of them. For such a long time I opted for cheap and cheerful bronzers but last year I finally decided to bite the bullet and add Hoola to my Christmas list. I’ve been the biggest fan of other Benefit boxed powders for years (Hervana, Coralista and Bella Bamba, I’m looking at you!) so it was only right that I tried another powder from Benefit. It’s safe to say that Hoola is a good ‘un!

The first thing that I look for in a bronzer is a shade that isn’t too warm or orange looking as my pale skin can easily look overdone with bronzer. Thankfully Hoola is the perfect shade as it’s not too warm and not too ashy, and works as both an all-over bronzer and contour. Paired with the fact that Hoola is completely matte, it really is the perfect bronzer in my eyes. The powder is nicely pigmented but is so easy to blend, and I’ve loved applying it using my new Zoeva 110 Face Shape Brush (review coming soon).

Some may find Hoola a bit pricey at £23.50 but I couldn’t recommend the boxed powders enough as they really do last a long time – a few of the Benefit blushers that have been in my stash for years still have so much product left inside!

  • I just recently picked this up because I thought it was too good to be true, sorta deal but now its my favourite! It’s a perfect shade for us pale gals, that need a little more warmth, also I love using it as a transition color in my crease of my eyes too, it’s a great all around shade. I just got a travel size but I will be picking up a big size once I’m done.

  • Such a lovely bronzer! I may have to splash out a little and get it! I have the same problem with pale skin and find that a lot of the time bronzer/contour is just too orange for my skin! I’ve always wanted a benefit boxed powder for such a long time xD x

  • I love this bronzer, I haven’t used it in forever. I need to try using this to contour.

  • This looks like it would be perfect for my skin tone. I’ve almost picked this up so many times — I think it’s about time I do!

  • I’ve gone through 3 of these now. The colour is just perfect for contouring and bronzing. The brush it comes with is good quality although it does tend to shed when you give it a good wash. The only downside is the packaging that gets grubby pretty easily~ Another bronzer that I love using if I’m not using this is the NARS laguna but that one is a little bit pricier but you get more product.

    Great post, Have a lovely day ♥
