    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

    My favorite bronzer. I remember first testing this out in stores and at first glance in the pan it looked like a light to medium muted bronzer but when I actually tried it I was shocked how pigmented it was! I kinda had to scale it back because I didn't wanna look crazy. This bronzer is extremely natural looking and more brown rather than orange (who wants to be orange) but can be built up to your perfect color

              I was using NARS Laguna Bronzer. I ran out, forgot to order some & I don't have the "other" store close, So I started looking at reviews online. A lot of people said that this was very similar to NARS. I honestly like it better. It's completely matte. NARS has a slight shine to it. Anyway...I am VERY happy with this purchase & will continue using it instead of NARS (which may also cost more than this one).

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

                I love the hoola bronzer because it gives you a natural bronze/contour look. It is just the right amount of pigmentation to stand out on your cheeks while still being able to blend easily. I have medium skin tone and if I were any darker it might not show on my skin as well, so I would recommend this bronze for light to medium skin tones.

                          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."
