    First time I bought it I thought it was too high priced for the amount of product you get - boy was I wrong - perfect color that is very pigmented that lasts a very long time - will always have a spare so I don't run out

    Love the bronzer bug the brush throws me off a little bit, it makes the bronzer looks streaky. Use it with your own brush and you get a golden "fake tan"

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

        Lots of pigmentation in this product however, even lightly stroking my own bronzing brush over the bronzer comes up with way too much product. Must shake off brush before applying to face in order to prevent creating an over bronzed scary face.

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."
