Hoola Benefit Bronzer

A review on the Hoola Benefit Bronzer.

The Hoola Benefit Bronzer is something that I had had my eye on for quite some time, ever since its rising popularity. And since I’m getting more and more into contouring, I thought “Why not? I should probably get a proper bronzer instead of using a matte brown eyeshadow.”

The Hoola Benefit Bronzer is by no means the cheapest option at $28, and I will say that it was a lot smaller in real life than I had seen in a multitude of pictures. Then again, I don’t have too much experience with the average bronzer size, and to be honest I don’t think you need a lot of product anyway.

Whether you want a more dramatic contour or something more natural, this is a good product either way. It’s very natural looking, but easy to build up if you want something more striking. But because it’s so build-able, less is more. There have been a few times I applied it and thought that you couldn’t see anything, so I added more and more. Later in the night my friend took a side picture of me and you can really see the bronzer.

A review on the Hoola Benefit Bronzer.

I’ve also heard that some bronzers can be orange-toned, but this is definitely not one of them. The Hoola Benefit Bronzer is matte, so it looks natural on your face and not shiny at all. I think this factor also helps the whole “natural looking” thing, which is fine by me.

It comes with its own thin brush which is nice and cute, but I do find my larger powder brush easier to use when it comes to this product. As it is larger, I think it blends the product better onto the hollows of my cheeks.

Color-wise, it looks a little light in the package, but it’ll come out slightly darker on your face. I know this probably goes without saying, but blending is key. Once it’s blended out, it looks really good, and I think you can use this for any (or at least most) skin tone.

A review on the Hoola Benefit Bronzer.

Although the brush it comes with fits nicely inside, I would say it’s not the most travel-friendly beauty product. The box is small, but it’s also kind of bulky and not as streamlined as I’ve seen other bronzer packaging. Still not a bad choice to take with you, but it will take up a little more space.

All in all, I really like the Hoola Benefit Bronzer and think it’ll last me a long time. Even when I tried a more dramatic contour, you don’t use a ton of product. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and use it almost daily, yet you can’t even see that I’ve made a dent.

EXTRA

  • when you first use it, you have to swirl the brush in there a little bit to get some product. Afterwards it’s easy, so it’s only the first time
  • the brush they give you is really soft and nice, but expect quite a few hairs to come out

Have you tried the Hoola Benefit Bronzer? How did you like it?
