    I've been using this daily, mostly for contouring and adding more color to my face now that I've tanned a bit. It's very buildable

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

        I have fair/pale skin and wanted a little bit of color for the summer. The sales associate recommended this. I used it a couple of times and found that it just doesn't suit my skin. It was difficult to blend and looked rather fake (way too dark and orange) even when applying the tiniest amount.

            This is seriously the best bronzer that I have ever used in my life!. I love trying new brands of makeup and different products but I'm also picky at some items. Bronzers is one of them. I looked at reviews about this product for months and months and so I gave it a go. The result is absolutely flawless!!! I have acne prone skin with paleness. So most bronzers show my acne and it looks gross but this one glides on like butter and it makes my skin naturally tan! Most bronzers wear off easily. I also have oily skin, so this helps out as well with the bronzer not coming off easily. It is worth the price and I will definitely buy this bronzer again and maybe even get it for a friend. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! No regrets about this. :) Very pleased with this.

              I had seen/heard this product mentioned in numerous highlighting/contouring tutorials. I have been struggling to find the right product for my skin tone, but also my face shape. I have a round face, so contouring, making a shadow, is not as easy as it is for other face shapes. I originally purchased the Balm's Bahama Mama matte bronzer after also seeing it in tutorials. I like the product, however it is way too dark for my skin and it actually makes me dirty.

              When I bought this product, I was nervous because it looked really light in the packaging. But when I actually put it on, I realized the packing is deceiving...in a good way. The product is lighter than some other contouring products I've seen or tried, but it is PERFECT for my skin tone. It is not orange, it is not ashy like the Bahama Mama and it does not make me look dirty. I do use the little brush that comes in the packaging and that thing is AWESOME. I use very little of the product at first, and then I build on it. I like to do a natural looking contour, and this product is perfect for that. Although it is expensive, it is totally worth it. I also think it will last a very long time.

                  At first I didn't know what the hype was but when I purchased it to try, OMG so creamy not chalky like the NARS one I had, it blends out perfectly and it is buildable. I was afraid it wouldn't be pigmented enough for my medium skin tone but I was wrong. Perfect for everyday contour and also if you want a more defined line. So glad I gave this bronzer a try this will be my go to product for contouring.

                        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:

                        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.

                        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!
