Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

I wear this every day over tinted moisturizer; looks natural if you keep a light hand. Matte. Great for that no makeup look. Buildable for a full-face when I'm in the mood for that. However, the fact that you have to keep the cheap plastic insert in order to protect the product from crumbling against the brush is idiotic. Benefit, please add a sectioned compartment in the top of the box for the brush.

      I like the color of the bronzer, but I found it to be blotchy when I was trying to contour with it. I'm not impressed, especially for the money.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

      Let me star off by saying I love the old version of this bronzer back when it didn't have a mirror on it and was twice the size of the newer one. With that being said, I do love this bronzer but I feel like it's changed so much from size to consistency to pigment. They don't make things like how they use to. Still I do recommend, I use this everyday to contour.

            I am very pale. I went into one of your stores and was told to buy this product. I have it now, but it appears very unnatural on my skin color. I have tried using a bronzing brush and the one it came with... should I try something else?

              Hi gorgeous! Hoola Matte bronzer is the most natural bronzer out there! No red, no shimmer, no orange—you'll be contoured for days! 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."
