It's good for bronzing and contouring too but it doesn't last long. Even my friends had similar experience with the product

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

      This product does come off good on the skin but it is very difficult to blend out with a brush. When I use my beauty blender it blends better but barely shows up on my skin afterwards. I definitely regret this purchase and will continue to use my other bronzer until I find something better.

            This is a wonderful bronzer and perfect for contouring. The only thing that I didn't love was the brush. I would recommend purchasing a full contouring/bronzing blush to use with it. It is the perfect size to take with you when traveling, the color is beautiful, and it goes on smooth!

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!
