        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

        I have very light skin that freckles, so my face is a combination of ivory and tan. This is a great bronzer for a natural look. Brings back some of the color I'm used to seeing, but blends really well and looks super natural even on fair skin tones. It's extremely versatile and blendable. I apply a light dusting for depth during the day, then layer more contouring or faking a tan on special occasions. I take this bronzer everywhere and wear it year round.

        my favorite bronzer

        By Amber k

        from Phoenix

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

        I use this every day over the rest of my makeup. I only need a little bit and it blends well with minimal effort. my skin is pale in the winter and gets very tan in the summer and I can still use this product every day with great results. There's no shimmer so it looks natural and you can layer it if you want a more defined look but I don't do that. as a busy mom of 3 kids I appreciate that this bronzer cuts makeup application time in half because I can wear it with no other rouge or setting powder and it still makes a great day look and I can use it if I go out to enhance my other makeup

          Doesn't show up

          By kait

          from New York

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

          From all the rave reviews, I gave into the hype and bought this bronzer, I tried putting it on, but it would not show up on my skin no matter how much I put on. And my skin is an olive tone, but it is on the lighter side of olive tones, but nothing showed up, so those of you who have light olive (Filipino skin tone) I recommend getting the chocolate Soleil bronzer by too faced.

              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."
