          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer:

          I don't like bronzers that have shimmer or orangey/golden tones. This seems to be perfect. I do apply powder underneath so it doesn't look muddy and it's easier to blend. If I forget that step, I struggle to make it look natural.

            This bronzer is great but it does apply very dark so you need to be careful when applying. I use this bronzer for my dance competitions every year and it has not seemed to disappoint! 10/10

                  I apply it with a professional brush as a contour/blush and it is awesome. Gives you definition without looking overdone. I top off the apples of my cheeks with a light pink blush and it looks amazing. Benefit cosmetics are quality you can see and feel!

                    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."
