          I have been using this product for about 3 + years. My daughter uses it as well, but I buy one for her separately so that we each have our own and she no longer steels mine!

          Great for very oily skin

          By jules85

          from california

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

          I have extremely oily skin ! I blot every hour probably could every half hour too it's that bad! I can only use estee lauder double wear foundation I been using that since the first year it came out way back when. So I need stuff that can last and not shift or blotch I am very picky about my makeup it had to last and not smudge or end up patchy looking. This bronzer is perfect for my light medium warm skintone. NC 30- NC 35 for reference. It goes on beautiful I really like the color for my skintone..it's soft and easy to blend which is so helpful with my skin. It has not broke me out or blotched on my skin. I have done the whole too faced chocolate soile and there other bronzers it all blotched and began the patchy seperation within a few hours. So if you have oily skin like mine I would so for sure go this route if your torn on bronzers to choose. This lasts my whole makeup day which is about 12 hours of makeup on with bloting and repowering & blushing threw out the day. My new HG bronzer thanks benefit!

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

            I was looking for a bronzer that would liven up my fair skin in the winter months but without shimmer. The associate recommended Hoola Matte Bronzer. It's ok so far-be careful not to use a heavy hand if you have a light or fair complexion. It's not orangey like some products and seems like it will last a while. Not crazy about the packaging---very small brush that comes with it and hard to get product onto larger brush.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

            I use this product to contour. I like more of a cool toned natural looking contour and this one is the only bronzer that does that for me. Almost every bronzer I have tried is either orange when applied to my face, or patchy looking. The only con i have is that it does not last the whole day on my face. However, it does last a good 4-5 hours, which is more than any other bronzer or contour powder I have tried.

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."
