Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

I'm not happy with the product. It's matte, which I love but the love stops there. On me, the color is a bit on the orange side. I also feel it is making my acne worse. I'm disappointed because I typically love this brand.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

    I saw this product in a make up tutorial and I purchased it. I wasn't a big fan of bronzers due to my light skin, I thought they looked fake on me, this product made me CHANGE MY MIND.Not too much shimmer which makes it even more natural.

      I really love this bronzer. The color is perfect for my skin and its believable. I feel like I just got done laying out. I love that it comes w/a brush!! I have tried other bronzers where it looks orangey. This one is matte and no orange hue.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

        I use this on myself as well as my fairer skinned friends and it is flattering on both types of skin but I likley wouldn't suggest it for darker skin as it isn't that dark to begin with. However, it is the perfect non-sparkly/glittery contour- great shade to create shading!

        favorite product of all time

        By Jess

        from ga

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hoola:

        I was so hesitant to buy this product solely because of the price. I finally gave in and got it and I am just blown away at how in love I am. The packaging is so cute and I love the brush it comes with. The color is not orange at all and is so natural looking. The formula is super soft and very blendable. Everything about this is perfect. The only con is that since it's in a box the mirror is far back so not much light reaches it so it's hard to use. Not that I use it anyways so I don't really care haha

            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

                  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.

                  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!
