        I love this bronzer, I have recommended to so many people, and I think it looks great on every skin tone! Blends so well, I even use on my neck and decollete if I'm feeling a little pale. And it lasts all day, doesn't rub off or look patchy.

        Beautiful Bronzer

        By Jessika Cruze

        from Raleigh, NC

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

        I have more of medium deep skin tone and it looks very natural. I got this in the $15 kit on black friday and I absolutely love it. I've only used it twice but it looks so nice. When I finish the little size I'll purchase the big size. I also didn't expect for the brush to be good but actually I think that's what applys the bronzer beautifully. I really recommend for any skin tone.

        Still On the Hunt For My Cool Skintone...

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

          I'll start by saying I'm an absolute pro with makeup as well as acrylic and oil on canvas (and we're talking hyper realism here). I'm one of those people that can contour to make a face look like someone else's. Because I'm an artist and can mix paints to create an exact match to any color I'm looking at, I am acutely aware of which skintones look best in what colors and how to create them with wet & dry layers. This particular product is still fairly warm for a cool skintone for the purpose of contouring. It is advertized as a bronzer and as such, does impart nice color if you're looking to give a more tanned flush to the face and decolette. Everyone talks this product up and while it is hard to make a mistake with it (it doesn't give a hard or dark contour to light skin [nw15 in Mac, c2 in loreal]), it is not enough of a contour alone for a true artist. What this is is a transition color. When you go to apply a transition color to your eye crease and you reach for that slightly warm beige color, that's what this is (and can also be used for). I give it 4 stars as a transition color for light neutral to light warm skin, 3 stars for transition for light cool skin, 2 stars for ultra pale cool skin, 2 for medium, and 0 for dark (all ratings specifically for the purpose of contouring). I suspect this would be a fantastic product for neutral and warm tone contouring, especially if you're light & new to contouring and don't want to mess up or impart too much impact. For contouring true cool skintones, we need something ashier and with a slight amount of purple added. I have only been able to find this with eyeshadows (blushes are usually too plum). As far as dark or medium skintones, sorry this product isn't for you for contouring but may add a nice amount of warmth. Really pale skintones such as alabaster, unless you're a warm tone, I wouldn't recommend this and even then, you'd need some good technique as of course this will show up on you like anything else.

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."
