Hoola Bronzing Powder by Benefit

Today I bring you guys an old favorite of mine from my tanning days. This is Hoola by Benefit I really like this bronzer because it has a matte finish and doesn't make you look shiny or over glittered like some bronzer's tend to do. I like to think of this as a more realistic bronzing powder because it just gives you a natural look and finish without the Oompa Loompa Orange stigma.


Something that really makes this product versatile is that it is build-able so I can use it even if I'm not the bronzed goddess I used to be ;). It works well on pale skin to give it a sun kissed look without looking fake or unnatural. I mainly use this during the summer months when I wear minimal makeup because it stays wonderfully and doesn't sweat off like foundation can.

This also came with a little square brush but for me it was not big enough or soft enough so I tossed it. I opt for using a angled blush brush and a little of this product goes a long way, no need to be heavy handed.

As you can see from my box this got quite a bit of use I picked this one up sometime last summer and still have quite a bit left over from the season. This retails for $28 and can be purchased at stores like Sephora or from Benefit's Website. With Spring fast approaching your going to want a good bronzer on your side and I definitely recommend giving this one a look.

Have you used any Benefit Bronzer's?

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with bronzers. Maybe I'm just too heavy handed with it! but I sure don't want to look like I've tanned TOO much! haha

  6. I've been looking for a good matte bronzer forever! Do you know of any *dark* matte ones? Like pretty dark? I wear foundation in medium 4 so a lot of the bronzer i see almost matches my skin :/

    1. There are a couple that I looked at that I liked but were too dark for me
      MAC Bare shouldered Bronze aka Matte Bronze
      NYX Body Bronzer
      Two Faced Soleil Bronzer

      Lorac Tantalizer Bronzer

      and then the one a lot of people rave about is
      NYC Sunny Bronzer

      Hope these help, out of all of them I really liked the Lorac and MAC ones but they were just too dark for me so I stuck with the Hoola
