Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

I have oily skin and have found a fountation that prevents it. After using this powder, it has caused my skin to become oily by the end of the day and no longer on. I will stick to my Chanel products.

If you do not have oily skin, I would guess it would work well. No sure

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

    I received this product as a sample and attempted to use it on my very fair skin for contouring, but it is much too dark. I've found that it's extraordinarily difficult to blend, especially at the hairline.

      Not what I was expecting.

      • Unnatural Color

      Best Uses

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

        I'm half latina, half white. I have olive undertones, but my skin is quite light because of the climate I live in. This bronzer is virtually the same exact shade as my natural skin tone after blending. It doesn't even look like I applied any bronzer at all. I can only imagine this working for someone with very light or fair skin.

                i didn't like this product, they said it was the best selling product and had no oranges or red tones in it. When i put it on it was like slabbing on powder and i have olive skin tone, it was not a bronzer for me whatsoever.

                      Yes, Hoola provides a very natural bronze glow and never appears orange. It looks great on a broad range of complexions, including fair skin like yours!

                      Benefit Dallas is another great option for anyone with fair skin; it is a blush and bronzer in one that provides a healthy outdoor glow:

                    I have a darker, olive complexion, and have a hard time finding bronzers that don't just end up looking like foundation. I am a 6 in the Naked liquid foundation and a tan in Tarte's BB cream and concealers. Which skin tones does this product work best with?

                      A:

                      This bronzer is very versatile (never orange-y) and works well for fair-to-tan skin tones. If you're looking for a subtle hint of matte bronze color, it should be ideal for you. Hoola can also be used as a contouring shade on darker skin tones.

                      A:

                      This product is a bronzing powder that can be dusted (using the soft, natural-bristle cheek brush, included) over your chin, cheeks, and forehead for a healthy, natural looking "tan" year-round. It features a natural matte finish (no glitter/sparkle) that works great for skin of any age!
