                    I have a very fair completion and using bronzer is new for me. I feel this is a good and natural color for my fair skin. I don't think it would be dark enough for those with a more olive tone.

Sweep across your chin, cheeks and forehead and always tap off excess powder to avoid too much color for a natural-looking tan. If you would like more of a "blush" to your skin I recommend our Dandelion Brightening Baby-Pink Blush (Item #: 2159837).

                          Here's Benefit's official brand response:

                          "Benefit does not test our products on animals.

                          Since 1989, the Perfumes & Cosmetics companies of LVMH group (including Benefit Cosmetics) have not performed any tests on animals for our products - this was implemented long before the 2013 official ban set by the European Union.

                          We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We're playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the "Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing" in the United States. We also actively participate in validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe. We are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our top priority.

                          We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing."

                          Both dallas and hoola are natural-looking face powders. Hoola is our pure matte award-winning bronzing powder. Dallas is a sheer wash of dusty rose that can be used as a bronzer or a blush!
