This is my all time favorite bronzer---
The colour works great with my fair skin but I can use it on my friends with deeper complexions and it works for them too! The product is so smooth and buttery and is super easy to get a good contour/bronze without looking streaky. It's also 100% matte, which is great because I personally hate when you are trying to contour with a bronzer and there is shimmer in it.
this bronzer is beyond perfection!
All I have to say is if you don't have this GO GET IT!
I LOVE this product. At first I thought it was a bit expensive, but then I realised how long it lasts, and how good quality it is! There is no orangey tones whatsoever, it is a beautiful warm brown colour and is really great pigment.
Wasn't sure it would show much on my medium skin but it actually worked, my daughter has slightly darker skin and it even worked for her. Especially great for when you want to go for the "I'm not wearing makeup look", just contour in the right places.
I really wish Benefit knew that there are darker skin tones and considered them. I personally feel Benefit has a poor track record of making accurate colors for darker women. I can use this as a setting powder but not a bronzer, yet many other brands make bronzers for darker skin. Will not be purchasing from Benefit until they make their products more universal.
Perfect bronzer for every season, works when my skin is tan and when its quite pale. such a beautiful shade for an eyeshadow in the crease as well!
I think it's perfect for my skin.
I watched many youtube videos about this bronzer before purchasing because i am very pale and i took the risk and i am so glad because it contours those cheekbones for the gods!!!! love it so much purchase it you won't regret it!!!
I was thinking about purchasing Hoola for the longest time and I finally did like a few days ago, but I was quite disappointed...unfortunately it looks very orange on me, I am gonna use it up, probably, but not gonna purchase it again. I think my hunt for the perfect bronzer is not over.
But I have to say...the mini one is too cute to handle, I am obsessing over the packaging like a child. And the product goes on very nicely, not patchy, not muddy, the brush that comes with it is actually really good...nice one, Benefit, but I'd need a cooler shade.
Hoola is the perfect shade to contour with! Even for light skin! Just use a light hand to apply.
I love this bronzer! Its build able and diverse. You can use it as contour bronzer (duh) , eyeshadow. The color is truly beautiful. This bronzer is perfectly pigmented! I love it. Everyone should try this product!
My fave bronzer of all time, a few sweeps on your face and you will be a glowing goddess in no time!
I got this in the porefessionally bronzed kit, as it was the same price yet you got a mini watts up and porefessional. It's matte which I love as I have oily skin so shimmer doesn't help me and is a great shade for my skintone. The brush is ok if you like contour, but I apply it with my real techniques blush brush as I prefer a overall bronzed look. It's just a overall lovely product!
Love Hoola for a subtle glow in the summer when I'm tanned and for contouring.
Not too dark or harsh, blends beautifully and has a matte finish so looks natural.
I love this product! I was a bit sceptical at first to buy it due to the price but it is definitely worth the money. It can be used for bronzing up the face or defining your cheekbones. I love the brush that comes with it as it helps to really define and chisel your cheekbones when contouring! It is very buildable and easy to blend and you only need the smallest amount.
Absolutely amazing, best bronzer i have ever tried
Amazing suttle Matte bronzer that blends flawlessly into the skin giving the perfect bronzed look for any skin tones , perfect for adding colour to where the sun naturally hits the face or for a more intense contour
I was really fead up with having a glittery face when wanting to wear bronzer, but with this I don't need to worry about looking like a disco ball :)
I seriously cant go a day without this bronzer. It is an absolute staple! Its got the perfect amount of warm and cool tones and its matte as well so its perfect for a bit of subtle contouring. The formula is so blendable which makes it super easy to apply. It goes lovely with my skin tone and even friends of mine with different colourations use it too and we all love it. Gorgeous product all year round not just for summer.
I was pretty skeptical at first because I'm extremely pale and this looked pretty dark but even on my skin it's amazing as a contour!
I wouldn't use it as a setting powder or anything like that, but for that extra umpf it's great.
This product is hassle-free to use and easy to blend. Its colour is not too dark and just right. However, it can get a little dry.
Hoola is Benefit's most iconic product. After hearing so many great things, I decided to pick one up for myself. The matte brown does not have an orangey undertone nor does it look muddy. Perfect for contour, this bronzer can also be used as a smokey eyeshadow. I don't really know if anything compares to it now.
The hoola benefit bronzer is truly amazing and is my favourite product from benefit. It can be used for many purposes like contouring the face and having a glowing tan. It does last a very long time and comes with a small brush, which helps apply the product.
this product playing many uses
it's amazing for contouring and when you want bronze the whole face it's work perfectly! it's not very dark and give perfect golden look without look orange
I purchased it after watching YouTube makeup tutorials where gurus raved about it and I have never been so pleased.
I wore it to my school prom to sculpt my cheekbones and present a more defined jawline and slimmer face.
It complimented my skin tone perfectly (and pretty much all skin tones) and it looked amazing in the photographs.
Matte finish, great packaging, durable and high quality. Most importantly - fab value for money.
This is not a purchase, it is an investment.
I bought benefit's Hoola and instantly became in love with it. It looks so natural when you put it on. You can sculpt your face precisely and contour it well. It's matt so there's no shimmer. my go to bronzer!
This product is amazing. Not too dark or to light.
I have a pale skin tone and i wanted a bronzer for the summer, this product is great for showing of your cheek bone.
I'm very pale so i don't use alot but i love using it on nights out as it really helps define my cheekbones. Haven't used another bronzer since trying this.
A lovely build-able bronzer. The colour is perfect and you can wear it as subtle or as bold as you fancy. No real shimmer (which I love). no complaints at all with this product.
I love this product and cannot recommend it enough. I have been using it for many years and it never lets me down, you can build this up gradually as I have fair skin and really works for me. Last for a long time as a little goes a long way. I don't use the brush it comes with as I like a bigger brush.
I bought this product because I felt that I wanted to learn more about contouring, and actually bought alongside with the high beam highlighter. I love this product, I have fairly pale skin (ivory colour) and this bronzer really brings out your lowlighted areas, and gives you seriously good contour lines underneath the cheek bones.
I contour my cheeks with Hoola. Its the perfect color and I like how its matte and not shimmery! Benefit products are the BEST!
This was bought for me by my partner bless him and I was quite annoyed as I have very pale skin and have never been able to wear bronzer, however this is buildable but is still slightly dark for my skin so only works when I have been hitting the sunbeds. I kept it for ages in my make up box until I decided to try contouring with it and wow it looked fantastic, however I used my own blusher brush for the contouring not the one in the box so if you do have very pale skin don't assume that you cannot use this product
This is a great color for bronzing. I use it to cnotour the cheeks. THe color payoff is excellent! Is matte and That is ok withb me.
I absolutely love this bronzer! It is the best bronzer I have ever used. It is rather pricey, but so worth it, and I always get compliments on it as well. The thing I love about it so much is that it is matte and is not an un natural shimmery orange colour, which many bronzers tend to be like. It looks very natural, like you've got a lovely sun kissed glow :)
I bought this over the summer and I do not regret it at all!!! I don't like to tan my face because it's bad for your skin, but I didn't like my face being much lighter than my body and this powder solved it! I use it as a face powder and put a light dusting on my face to give me a nice hint of glow and tan and it works so well for me! It's also matte and doesn't leave my face all sparkly. If you are more fair skinned or your face could just use a little more tan, this product is perfect! It is a warm color, but does need to be built up to this in order to have the full color effect, which is great because it is so easy to over do your bronzer if it instantly has a strong color. It works great as a contouring bronzer and as a face powder, so bottom line this product is $28 well spent!!!
Hi everybody, i got a sample of hoola, along with other samples and something really funny happened to me with hoola... IT IS EXACTLY MY SKIN TONE! so i guess you wanted to recreate the skin tone from a 20-something latina... well... mission accomplished ;)
Absolutely amazing bronzer!! Worked beautifully when I was pale and still worked after I got a tan on holiday! Love it! Lasts ages too!!
I used to think I could never use bronzers because i was too pale however after reading reviews about this I thought I would try just one more and I'm so glad I did. I can create such a subtle look with this and all my friends keep telling me how great it look. And I finally look a little less pale!!!!
My mother is a makeup artist and i go to cosmetology school aspiring to become one as well and this is the only bronzer i use on a daily basis. Its completely matte and not extremely intense so it looks like a natural tan and it's easy to build up coverage for a more dramatic tan. One compact lasts me for about 3-4 months only because i use it on other people as well when i do their makeup for events. I also use it in my everyday routine. I highly recommend this.
This product is basically my whole life now I can not live with out this bronzer. I use it daily it applies so nicely and I love how matte it is and how you can build it up and you still look perfect no matter how much you apply. I love this product to bits and I don't think i will ever replace it! I am so beyond happy that i have finally found a product that I am satisfied with.
I had heard rave reviews about Hoola. I love bronzers but don't always want the shine that comes with them. I've been using Hoola every day this week, as a cheek brozer but also as a highlighter. And the brush included is so soft and great for contouring AND cheeks!
I love Hoola bronzing power. It is the most functional makeup power I have found. I can always count on it to give me an even glow no matter how tan/pale my skin is.
I love Hoola so much! Im so pale and cannot tan, i just burn. And i was really sceptical to try it cause i didn't want to look too orange and didn't want to look dirty but i tried it anyway and i love it so much it is the best colour it has NO shimmer and it is matte. i loved everything about it i though that the brush inside was just going to be a throw away item but its the only brush i use to apply the bronzer it goes on so evenly and looks flawless. this product is definitely worth the money because it lasts forever and its just a great product that does the job. Love it so much and recommend it to everyone.
if your not sure try the sample first, but I'm sure you'll love this!! ahhhh i can't rave about it enough!!!
I love it and i love how it gives me a bronzed look and a natural glow on my face
I was given this bronzer for Christmas, and I have used it probably about 4-5 times a week. It is a perfect sun kissed colour and every time I've applied it I have had no streaks at all! I always get compliments off my family and friends saying how natural it looks. it last me for about 6 hours without any touch-ups. The packaging is adorable as well. The only con for ME is that I cant afford to keep buying more. I highly recommend this product.
Wow. I got a sample size of this product, and I can't believe that I've been a self-proclaimed Benefit-aholic this long without discovering the magic inside of this little box!
For finishing off a sun kissed look, this is my new go-to necessity. I had been using One Hot Minute, but I was never a fan of the shimmery effect, plus it seemed to rub off on everything. As for Hoola, problem solved!
The matte finish is beautiful, natural, and long lasting. Amazing how something so simple can have such a positive effect on my overall look and confidence. This product is a grand slam.
This is a subtle and natural bronzer that can be built up as you like... Easily achievable sun kissed look in moments
Love that this bronzer is light yet buildable. I am fair skinned naturally and it doesnt make me look overdone; just a light sun-kissed glow. It also works when I have a tan as I can build it up to a deeper shade.
Seems like there isn't very much in the pot but a little goes a long way so should last a while. Very pleased!
I have a wide face with an small chin and a slight double chin, I also have no cheekbones. This bronzer is amazing for contour! It can be adjusted for a dramatic kim kardashian contour, or can be toned down for a softer contour. I bought this from the nearest sephora to me (which is 2 1/2 hours away from me) I planned on buying fake-up but instead I bought this, and I am so happy I did. (The brush it comes with is great for buffing things out)
I love the natural look to this product. It's very matte, so it looks like a real tan. I do have to blend it quite a bit, but even then it looks great on my very light skin. I can't imagine anyone that this wouldn't look good on. It's nice that it comes with a brush as well. I don't usually use it, but a nice touch for travel!
This product is part of my daily routine. Great color for that sun kissed look.
The matt natural colour of this is perfect for me. I have oily skin, and shimmer always seem to make it looks worse. The brush which comes with it, is excellent for contouring. I have had this (so far) for 1 year) and looks like there is tons left.
this product is absolutely amazing and Im obsessed.
He left me for a whole day and it seemed perfectly natural(:
Seriously…you need this bronzer in your makeup bag! It is a beautiful matte tan color that looks really natural on skin and is buildable so you can get as much or as little color as you want. The powder goes on very smoothly and, as always for Benefit, the packaging is adorable. The included brush is perfect for contouring, and it also blends in really easily with a blush/bronzer brush. It really does make you look like you got a pretty tan, such a flattering look. I definitely recommend this product to any girl who loves Benefit!
I have oily skin and hate using anything shimmery anywhere on my face except my eyes. I was using just a cheap bronzer before that had a bit of shimmer to it and after watching a couple reviews on youtube, I was absolutely sold on this product. It is great to use for a little color but awesome if you are looking for a heavier look too. It is completely matte so I never have to worry about it adding to my shiny, oily face through out the day. I also LOVE this as an eye shadow. I use a light shimmering base and then work this product into the crease and it is the perfect natural look. Will be buying this product for yearrssss to come!
I have fairly light-medium skin tone and LOVE this product! I don't use it all over but rather as a contouring tool! Right below my cheek bones then towards my temples, and finish off with a line of Watt's Up above it! Sometimes I'll even add high beam for an extra lit-up finish... I love it because even with an medium ivory skin tone I can still give my face that "glow" everyone always speaks of! Sadly, I only have the deluxe samples of all of these products. Plus, a little goes a longgg ways... so you don't need to purchase it often
You won't regret buying Hoola! Thanks benefit!
Hands down the best bronzer I've ever tried for looking like a natural glow, a natural contour, and a natural tan. Absolutely love it, and very pleased!
I find it really difficult to get a bronzer I like because most have some shimmer or sparkle in them.. But I love Hoola because it's a great colour, not muddy like some bronzers, is completely matte and gives great colour to someone who is pale like me! Overall is a must buy, have repurchased this 3 times. Love it!
I LOVE this bronzer. I had never had a shimmer bronzer, but with my oily skin, I started to realize that matte may be the way to go. I absolutely love this bronzer for contouring and the color is perfect for my skin tone. However, I wouldn't say I'm particularly dark, and this color wouldn't work for someone with even a little bit more color than me.
I'm on my 3rd Hoola box and as you can tell, I love it! I've tried to switch to different colors and brands but I keep coming back to this one. I have medium colored skin and I tan pretty easily during the summer but you can use this year round. This is another Benefit product where a little goes a long way. I tend to use it all over my face and it is awesome for contouring. I usually don't use the brush that comes with the box but it's a nice little addition.
I am a huge fan of Benefit cosmetics because they provide some really quality products. I bought their liquid foundation but decided that I needed some pop to liven my face up. I have a few blushes but I wanted to try bronzer. I have never used bronzer because I have extremely fair skin. I can't tan and even if I could, it wouldn't matter since I always use sunscreen. I decided to give this a try just to see what it would look like and it is stunning. The matte texture is perfect and I love that it's not shimmery either. A big plus for me is the brush inside, initially I thought I would toss it and use my powder brush but it actually applies the product perfectly. What I love most about this product is that it creates a really natural sun kissed look on my very pale face. I will continue to buy this and I truly believe that I will never find a bronzer that beats this one. It is my best make-up purchase ever.
To sum this product up - perfection in a box. I have light skin so bronzer is a must in my makeup regime, but it is hard for me to find a bronzer that is a. lightweight b. non shimmery c. non sparkly d. matte e. long lasting - this bronzer ticks all of these boxes. I have had endless compliments from friends and boys - boys do not really notice makeup, so when a guy goes 'hey, you look nice today', its a big deal. So buy this product if you want a good quality matte bronzer ;) you won't regret it, I promise.
Bought this product due to great reviews and not overly excited. it has made my foundation look "patchy". I think it could maybe be down to the random brush included (who applys bronzer with a rectangular brush?) a little disappointing as ive had to purchase a new brush to suit, overall not as great as i thought!
I am IN LOVE with this bronzer. It looks so natural! not too dark and not too orange. Because i have tan skin, I use this all around my face to make it glow and have even more color. I've been using the same box for over a year and I havent even hit pan! It is absolutely perfect.
I have no complaints about the product, except the brush...the bristle gives a bad smell, I mean, it literally stinks! Tried to use it a couple of times and ended up replacing it with my own applicator.
I use Hoola to contour. It's matte so it doesn't make me look shiny or dirty, it's buildable so I can make it as light or as dark as I want with very little effort, and a little goes a long way. This stuff lasts forever. It's very smooth and glides on like butter. I am very pale and this is the only product I've found that works without making me look overdone.
I've used benefit products for a while, and I've always been apprehensive with bronzers. I'm VERY pale faced, and looking like a ghost with a pink flush isn't that appealing... So a bronzer is a staple in my make up regime. This bronzer is light weight, and matt! No shine, no shimmer. It's perfect for day and night. Not to mention that when you have your photo taken, it doesn't look like you're something out of the Twilight Saga. Because it's lightweight, I can build it up to suit my skin tone, and not make me look orange! To sum it up, it borders perfect.
For us fair-skinned gals, bronzing powders can be tricky, but they can do SO MUCH for us!! Hoola can take a little practice if you aren't used to applying a powder in this way. A little sweep goes a LONG way, so make sure to tap off the excess as the tips explain. If you're still not getting the hang of it, check online for videos of how to apply it so you will be fully satisfied with the purchase. Nothing is worse than REALLY wanting a product, and then being disappointed because you have no idea how to make it work for you.
I've had this product for a few days and I love it! It makes my skin look like I've just been on Holliday, which is great! Perfect for contorting, I wear it every day and I will defiantly purchase this again.
I got this powder as a little mini version and im really happy with it so i am definitely going to buy the full size. I like that it has no shimmer in it and is really great for contouring your face.
I've tried many bronzers, both expensive and inexpensive, and this one is hands-down the best one for me! A little goes a long way, and it's very natural-looking. I will never go back to anything else!
Hoola is hands down my favorite bronzer of all time! It has a matte finish and it has build able coverage for any occasion.
This is by far the best contouring product on the market. Easy to use, I love how natural it looks on my skin. I find it sits flawlessly on my skin all day when used with Porefessional.
I also use Hoola as an eyeshadow and blend it into the crease when I'm in a rush to get out of the door, so it has a dual purpose which I love.
The packaging is very sturdy so its great to pop into your handbag if you need touch-ups.
I live by this!
I have purchased a lot of Benefit products recently, as I have wanted too find out myself what all the fuss is about, and since purchasing them I can see now, Hoola is absolutely perfect for contouring, or just even brushing over your face too give yourself a more sun kissed look! Its completely matte which I like, and I have heard that it will last me a long time! its extremely soft and will leave your skin feeling flawless!
Just bought this bronzer and already love it! i have a paler face in comparison to my body/decolletage and just a quick, light application and it matches!
my face is also quite oily, but i find that this bronzer is light enough to allow it to breathe, as well as make sure that i dont go shiny!
This bronzer is one of my favs its perfect when you want that nice natural look. Dont buy something that will give you a organge line down your cheeck bones get Hoola.
I have been using Hoola for years now and have never strayed away from it. It's perfect in every way from the packaging to the result it creates. I have had many compliments when wearing it so will therefore continue to do so. It's an ideal size especially when going on holiday. The only thing I don't use is the brush that comes with it as I prefer to use a bigger brush.
This is the perfect bronzer! I have tried quite a few and this is by far my favourite! it works so well with my skin, which i find hard to do because i have dark hair and have really light/fair skin, and this works so well on me! i even used it on my friend who has skin that is allot darker than mine and it still looks perfect! you cant go wrong with Hoola!
I have used this product for 2weeks and I love it! It's easy to blend with my foundation color. Maybe it's bit dark for light color skin.
HOWEVER, its packaging is poor. Mirror is useless and the case itself is inconvenience. Its clear tray for brush keep sticking when I close the case. Hopefully benefit improve the poor packing.
Perfect for contouring, i don't use it like bronzer because the colour is too cool, but i love it!
This product its just the best countouring powder!!!
Perfect bronzer to give a healthy, natural looking glow to the skin. Adds colour to the face and can also be used for contouring. You also get plenty of use out of this product. Got this for Christmas in a set off my mum (Thankyou Mum!) and use it almost every time I wear makeup (around 4-5 times a week) and I haven't made a dent! Completely worth it.
Perfect matte shade of brown. It is great bronzing and countouring. I recomend hoola ten times over.
I love the matte finish of hoola. I can get really oily, and extra shine just makes me look like a mess, so the matte finish is great. I'm super pale, but the color actually works really well with my skin tone. I can't use it as an all over brozer because it is so dark, but it's an amazing contour. I use it really lightly and blend down my neck a little bit and it's amazing.
I've had trouble in the past with finding a good bronzer that actually works and I think I've found it! It's not in the slightest bit shimmery, which I like and works works well with my skin. I love the fact that its matte and is really buildable so you can wear as much or as little as you like. Definitely going to repurchase this product :D
Hoola is the best bronzer i've ever used! This is probably because I tend to use bronzers for contouring, and don't like them to be shimmery. It is a perfect colour, my skin is extremely pale and it still suits me as well as more tanned girls. I think this is my favourite product after my Benefit foundation :)
I absolutely SWEAR by this bronzer! It's perfectly matte, and the color is buildable, so you can use as little or as much as you want, and it will suit any skin tone. I like most that it's very natural looking, not orange in the slightest, and because it's so matte, there's no sign of any shimmer anywhere on my face. I use it on my temples and my cheekbones to contour, but i sometimes use it as a blusher on the apples of my cheeks. Also, even though it's quite pricey, it's definitely well worth the money. I bought mine a year and a half ago, and although i've hit pan, I still have loads of product left! I'd recommend it to anyone, it really does suit any skin tone, so even people who have a fair complexion can still feel the benefits. I'll definitely be buying it again when i've run out!
When I first tried this product, I was in love. It added lots of definition to my sadly flat and round face, while looking natural. It also doesn't have the cheap looking sparkle in it that many bronzers do. However, it started to irritate my super sensitive skin, but I gave it to my friend who loves it. So as long as your skin isn't hyper sensitive, it's an amazing buy that really works!
I bought this when I need a bronzer. It's more for women who have darker skin. I have a medium tone and it wasn't perfect for me. My older sister who has darker skin than me actually ended up stealing it from me and it made me so sad! But it worked out better for her, but she owes me!! lol
I have really fair skin and hoola is the best bronzer i've tried: it is buildable so is perfect for most skin types. It gives you a really healthy colour all year round however the matte finish means it doesn't look like you're wearing any bronzer at all, which also makes it perfect for contouring. Also it lasts for ages so is excellent value in the long run.
This bronzer is perfect for my pale face. I use it almost everyday. It's so natural because of the matte finish. I reccomend this product to anyone interested in makeup, amateur or pro. It's also very long lasting! It usually will last longer than my 40 dollar foundation!
I have used Hoola year-round for about 6 years now. I use it to blend gray shadows on the lid for smoky eyes, and in the hollows of the cheeks for contouring. In the summer months, it's a great all-over powder that has a beautiful natural matte finish. Good luck finding any other bronzer out there without shimmer and sparkle. That's what makes Hoola so incredibly versatile. For fair skin tones, or for a subtle bronzed look, use a fan brush...you can't mess it up :) As a bonus, one box used daily can last a year or more. I HIGHLY recommend this product!
Hoola is the only bronzer I'll touch when I need a natural look. Other bronzers often have sparkles in them which definitely spoil the illusion of reality when it comes to using a bronzer, but Hoola is totally matte - and totally beautiful!
I use this for contouring; I use it below my cheekbones to give my pleasantly round face a little illusion of higher, more defined cheekbones. It does go down pretty dark and intense, so you need to be ready to blend, blend, blend if you don't want dark streaks on your sweet cheeks!
It can also work as just a bronzer to add a little kiss of sun look. The tone of brown is very realistic - it's not orange at all so you don't have to worry about looking like an Oompa Loompa.
Currently I am fairly light (I'm wearing my "I've never seen sun before" winter skin!) but I can tell that this bronzer will work just as well once I get out into the sun as the weather gets nicer and my skin gets a little darker. It's easy to be a little bronze or a LOT bronze with this product.
Pair this with some metallic eyeshadow and a little Sunbeam and you'll look like you just stepped off of the beach!
I don't use this as a bronzer, i use one hot minute as it makes me look dewy and fresh but i use this in the hollows of my cheeks to create killer cheekbones, it really works and along with highbeam it could make you look like a supermodel. I also use this down the sides of my nose to make it look slimmer. I would 100% reccommend this to anyone . I know there have been complaints about the brush in hoola but i use it to apply product to hollow of the cheeks and then blend using a blusher brush.
After years of buying cheap drugstore bronzing powders, I thought I would give Hoola a go...Best thing everrrr! It's a great matte bronzer which is excellent for contouring and giving colour without looking like an orange. I must admit at first when I went crazy with it and put a lot on I did kind of look dirty but I am leaving that down to the way i applied it myself, so be careful how much you use! If your unsure then I would obviously start with a small amount then build up colour. What I also admire about this product is how long it lasts! You 100% get your money's worth from this product as it really does last you a great amount of time. For me, a good way to apply this bronzer is in a 3 shape (forehead, cheeks and then jaw line) It really adds a nice warm and natural look to my skin. Overall it is a great product and I would definitely recommend it!
a bit dark for my skin tone but i think im just heavy handed with it
I bought this Hoola back in May and even though I have hit pan:( i have a lot of product left! Plus I use this everyday! This product is so good, I have to say the best bronzer I have ever bought and I will defiantly re-purchase it again! I love how it is build able so you can either get it very dark or even just a little bit tan and it does not make you look like a tangerine! So you can use it in all of the seasons! Also it is so quick and easy to apply, I use the brush provided because i feel it picks up more of the product than say a MAC 168 brush. LOVE LOVE LOVE this so much! x
I absolutely love this bronzer iv been looking for a matte bronzer for ages and finally found one that is amazing and worth the money. I love countoring my face with this and you can also use it as an all over colour.
Im quite pale and often find bronzers to be too dark on me. Hoola is buildable and so i can apply just enough to give me a sunkissed look and still look natural! BUY IT!
I have been using this bronzer for three years and I think it's absolutely fantastic and I would never change it! I use it as a blusher and I think it looks so subtle on the skin. I was worried when I first purchased it as I have a light skin tone but it isn't too dark, unless you want it to be and apply lots of layers. It also lasts a long time, I can usually make mine last around eight months and I use it every day! It also stays on all day when my other makeup begins to fall off. Overall, great product that i would definitely recommend!
I love my hoola bronzer it gives you the perfect bronzed look. I like how it comes in a box with a really soft brush, which is handy for those make up begginners where we diddn't know what brush does what!! Over all I really like it and it is good for the money. :)
I love this bronzer so much I just had to write a review to share with you girls.
I have tried so manyy bronzers as I just love being tanned. This bronzer has a perfect yellow toned bronzed, so everyone out there can look super natural - no orangeness! It has buildable colour so one sweep will give you an ultra-natural golden tint, or you can layer more to achieve a super flawless bronze.
Love the fact it's matte. Please Benefit NEVER change this bronzer!!! x
Having used other bronzers thought I would give this a go and I definitely wouldn't look back! It lasts a long time and gives great coverage. I like to use it for a bit of colour during the day and on a night out I build up the colour for a darker look, love this.
Great product. I always struggled to find a bronzer that didn't cake on over foundation and that didn't have sparkle in it (TOTALLY makes your tan look fake). It's smooth, and starts off sheer but you can build it up darker if you wish. Gorgeous packaging as well. Love!
i love this product so much! its got amazing coverage!
I've tried so many bronzers and all of them had too much sheen and glitter which is a big no for me. When I first got this it looked so dark and I prepared for the worst. But with a light hand, this worked like magic. It gave me the prettiest glow. I'm committed to Benefit's Hoola for a longgg time!
it is really a good bronzer with the light brown colour and matt finish.
I wear it every time I do male-up on the lower cheeks, under the chin and on the two sides of my nose to contour my face. It looks really natural.
Except for the not nice smell, I love this product in general.
This bronzer is by far the best I have ever used. I am a Benefit addict and I love all their products, but this one in particular. I get very tan in the summer but usually my face doesn't tan, it just gets a reddish/pink. I hate having a pink face and this bronzer transforms my face from pink to a natural looking tan very easily. It is amazing! It looks even better with some That Gal primer, and Hello Flawless foundation underneath, but even the bronzer on its own looks natural and beautiful.
this product is absolutly amazing! it brings a natural and tan look which is perfect for the beach or a normal day! its not too harsh looking like some bronzers and is very good for our skin~
Best benefit product made. Can't live without it!
So many people have raved about this product, so I decided to purchase it and give it a go. Fristly it comes in a large block, which is deceiving because you get a very thin palette of bronzer. The brush that comes with it is completely unusable, as no one would apply bronzer with a brush that shape. So you're paying £23 (ish) for a very small amount of product. So getting onto the bronzer itself. I was expecting something amazing, and maybe my expectations were too high, but this to me is just a very average medium matte bronzer. Nothing special. It's no different from say the Bourjois chocolate box bronzer, except that has a very slight almost unoticable shimmer. I definately expect more product for my money! The product is nice, it's just not the be all and end all that everyone makes out.
This bronzer was a bit intimidating when i first saw it because i'm sooo very pale. However it contours PERFECTLY and gives us pale gals a bit of that summer glow!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
I have fair skin so I was a bit iffy when I got it in the mail and saw that it looked a bit dark. When I put it on, not at all too dark. Doesn't even look like I have makeup on, it goes so well with my tan! I love that it's not skinny, love how it's matte. It's very natural looking too. Definitely recommend this!!!
I absolutely ADORE my Hoola. I am normally an NC35 or so but I can tan to NC40 and darker without much trouble- Hoola shows up best when I'm paler.
Other than the tone issue for some darker skinned ladies, Hoola is amazing. It is totally matte, so if you blend it right it's invisible. I use it for all my contouring, whether it be intense, going-out cheeks, or a casual summer glow to complement my tan. I concentrate it just under where my uppe jaw meets my lower, up by my ears- that slims my face perfectly. I also define my nose with Hoola on either side and a highlighter- Watts Up or Girl Meets Pearl- down the middle.
Hoola never cakes or looks powdery, and for a failsafe zero makeup look I use a facial mist over my powder. It seems to blend with every tone of skin within the range it caters to, which is about NC/NW 20-35.
Totally a holy grail product! The best of its kind <3 x
I use this everyday and have done for quite a few years now , I would never buy a different bronzer , it is perfect for everyday use as it is not shimmery ! I love it ! The only thing I don't like is the little brush that comes with it as I don't think it applies very nice when using this but I just use my own large brush to sweep across my cheeks.
I have used many bronzers from estee lauder to givenchy and this has to be my favourite. It's subtle if you want it to be, and if you've got a bit of a tan, you add more. It doesn't look fake. A fab product.
I love the Hoola bronzer! It perfectly contours my face and is the most amazing color! Super silky to the touch, and easy to apply! I got the sample in the "Cabana Glama" kit, and I love it. The only thing I don't absolutely adore is the brush shape. Other than that, you can't go wrong! :)
I LOVE Hoola Bronzer so much! It's not orange and it's matte! It applies on the face really easily. It's just a great product! :)
I Absoulutly adore Benefit Hoola Bronzer, its super perfect for contouring and also for an all over glow, its great to just chuck in your beach bag, and for on the go, x
I love this product, I use it everyday without fail! It gives me a natural tan look which I love!
I was intimidated by this product at first as I am very fair skinned, but the woman doing my makeup at the benefit counter was a contouring queen and changed my make up routine forever! As dark as it looks in the pallet, correctly shaking off your powder brush will put just enough on your face to give you an effect without looking cakey. This product is NOT too dark for us fair skinned ladies! I have a sun kissed look with the cheekbones I never thought I had! My favorite is to use the 3B technique with Hoola, follow up with some Hervana on my cheekbones, and just a little bit of highlight with Watt's Up. I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on my look.
My holy grail bronzer!!!! No shimmer just natural tan!!!! awesome!!!
I am a more mature girl, and have been looking for years for a bronzer that doesn't shimmer, Hoola is perfect for me, absolutely love this product. Next step is to find a foundation from Benefit, I cannot rave enough about Hoola!!
If I was sent away and could only take one beauty product with me it would be my Hoola bronzer! I am super picky and I don't settle for products... I am one to waste time and money looking for the best. Hoola is the best thing ever - love love love!!!
I really love this shade. I have fair skin and it works great on me as long as I don't go too heavy with the brush. I was surprised. I received a free sample of this when I made another purchase from Benefit and, while it was a big hard to get off the sample card, it still offered a great color payoff. I quickly used that up and I'm going to be repurchasing it in the double box set with the blush - it's a better value that way. I haven't tried the Thrrrob but I'm looking forward to it, I'm hoping I love it too! I highly recommend this one!
The best bronzer I have tried! AMAZING!! I use this every day, through winter and summer. LOVE IT.
I'm quite lazy when, in summer, it comes to getting a suntan. The idea of lying on the sand (if I'm in a beach) or on grass or any other surface (if I'm in a swimming pool) to get a suntan bores me to tears. Plus, I have a very fair complexion, some people have asked me whether I've been moonkissed instead of suntanned. The more I get is a golden hue, and that, by only taking a walk during a very sunny daylight. I like Hoola because the colour isn't too dark, but it is very natural. I use it over playstick in Jax (one of the very few that were left), to give some colour to my face. Sometimes I use it as blush, with some Watt's Up as highlighter. You can even use it as an eyeshadow.
I never used bronzer before I bought hoola, and now I'm hooked. I'm not a fan of the brush, but other than that the product is great. Typically I use a little posietint on the apples of my cheecks and then contour and bronze up.
So this bronzer doesn't make ANYONE orange! So, it totally doesn't for me! I love this! It can be used as an overall bronze look! Or you can use it as a contour! Either, you'll look SO amazing! Super product for the summer & winter! Use it all year round to look bronzed! Eeeek! Have that sun kissed tan all year round! I love this product! I use it both ways & I DO not look orange like when I use all the other bronzes!!
It is supposed to be a bronzer, i have applied some on my face. but nothings changed. i have a fair skin tone but you still cant see it on my face. anyway i tried to put a lil more. and it seems like a sunburn. not a good product for me.
I have to say that Hoola is awesome...it is just perfect. I´m not going to use any other browse any more because this one complete me. It is the best!!
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! I was dying to buy this one and I finally got it last weekend and I am in love. The color is perfect, it looks beautiful on me! It is the perfect bronzer. You have to have this one.
I give this stuff a 5/5 because I use it as the perfect contouring powder!
It's matte, and super-pigmented, so a little goes a very long way. The included brush is perfect for contouring, too (though a powder brush smooths out the line well). I wear Ivory powder, and just a bit of Hoola is subtle enough to give me a good contour.
I am WAY too pale to use this as a bronzer...beside, I'm proud of my paleness and wouldn't bronze. But I ain't opposed to a little contouring.
i was super excited after reading the reviews for this. I was expecting sort of a NARS laguna, but I dont know why. this is much more dark than in the picture, almost brown. it cakes on and looks extremely unnatural. I would NOT recommend this to anyone, even my worst enemy. Thank god I tried it on before.
It was the worst bronzer ever. It made my face greasy, brown and rubbed off my makeup. It caked everywhere and only lasted three hrs.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT LOVE IT! I like to mix Bella Bamba with my Hoola, I first apply Bella Bamba to give my cheeks a nice rosey glow, then I sweep Hoola on top in order to give me a bit of a bronze affect too!
I have always avoided bronzers because I have fair skin but hoola totally changed my mind, I sweep this all over for a lovely summer glow in n instant! and without looking like a Satsuma! x
At first, I don't get the idea of bronzers as I'm afraid that it will give me that fake tan look (worse, orange/dirty face!). But I decided to give it a try anyway. Hoola was my second bronzer and I love it. I think it's the perfect bronzer to give the skin a healthy glow. I like that it's matte, it can double up as a contour too. I just swipe this lightly on some areas on my face and voilà, I can see an instant difference. Nowadays, I never forget to put bronzer in my make up routine :)
I was a little unsure about using a brozer as I am so pale. But this is surprisingly natural looking on me. I think this may be because it is matte, and not too dark. I really love this product and would recommend it to anyone, and it also looks great with Coralista.
I was never a fan of bronzers as I thought they always make me look fake or a bit WAG-like, or too shimmery ;-) but not this one!! It's perfect and beautifully matte! I dust a little with a blush brush (not the one provided, gives too defined a line) onto the hollows of my cheeks, on my cheek bones, and sometimes a little on the apple of my cheeks, and I look alive and fresh. I have fair skin, but it still looks great. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!
I absouetly love this, i was looking for a matte bronzer and this is perfect, the only few downsides about it is its from pigmented if thats the word? so its goes very fast, like it almost blows away, and sometimes its hard to rub in with even the densest kabuki brushes so you really need to not make any mistakes bronzing, im not being negative and just being constructive cause i truly love it very much and il definetly be buying the full box when this one goes! :) CORALista goes very wel with this too i think :) HOOLA also has a very sweet smell which i love! and would defo work with the lightest skin shade for people with pale skin who find it hard to find a good bronzing powder. thanks benefit:)
I'm pretty pale so I was skeptical that any bronzer would look natural, but I've been pleasantly surprised. It's matte which I think makes it look more natural. The only reason I wouldn't give it five stars is the brush it comes with seems to make the power appear too heavy and a bit streaky. I've found that a rounded brush works better and allows for a lighter application which is helpful, especially in winter. I would definitely recommend it, especially to people who think they're too pale for bronzers because it looks very natural.
I just went to buy a backup because I am almost out of my bronzer only to see that they reduced the amount of product from .40 oz to .28 oz! And the price is the same! Look Benefit, it's cute that you decided to change the packaging, but I didn't buy this bronzer because I need a mirror. The whole point about your blush boxes is that they are different and adorable. I would rather have more product than a mirror! It's too small anyway!
So disappointed. If you're giving less product make it cheaper, it just isn't fair. This used to be my favorite.
This brand was good because it gives good quality/quantity for the price and thats perfect for all ages, especially teens. Now it has "young" packaging and "mature" prices. If a product is doing well, there's a reason for it. I'll go back to drug store.
Love it! First bronzer I've found that has no shimmer, and that is not too orange! Great for contouring!
I am very fair skinned, and have always had an issue with bronzers being way too orange on me. Hoola is the perfect shade of golden brown and really contours the cheek bones. I will never use another bronzer again, Hoola is definitely the best! Also, it has the cutest little box packaging, and it comes with A LOT of product!
I am a bronzer junkie and this is my absolute favorite bronzer. It is matte, looks natural and blends in flawlessly. Love it!
Best matte bronzer. Gives a natural looking, sun kissed glow.
I love this bronzer! Hoola gives my skin a warm glow without looking fake or orange. Its easy to wear during the day because it doesn't have any shimmer. I wear it every day, usually with coralista or sugarbomb on top. The first time I used it I got a brown streak across my cheek, so go easy at first!
This product is AMAZING! I love the fact that it is matte because I hate looking like a a disco ball! Also, it looks completely natural! Won't make you look orange at all. A simply natural tan. One more thing... you wont run out of this stuff! I've been using it everyday for 4 months and I haven't made a dent!
Fantastic! Love it! Gives a lovely sun kissed complexion!
whenver I use this, it always ends up looking fake and way too dark on me. boo :( and dont use the brush it comes with, it makes it even worse
I've been a devoted Hoola user for 12 years. Hoola is the perfect shade of naturally tan, without ever looking orangy or cakey. However, I am no longer going to be using this product at the fault of Benefit. The packaging of Hoola is a complete failure.
I've always been annoyed by the fact that it's in a square container, because you can never get all the way to the corners, and a ton of product goes to waste. I'd say the last 35% of the bronzer goes to complete waste, which is unfortunate because it aint cheap! In additon, the stupid little brush they include is a complete wasted of money and materials - I've never used that thing to apply the powder.
But what REALLY has caused me to stop using the product is the new box design that just came out. Benefit has reduced the amount of bronzer from .40 oz to .28oz but has kept the price the SAME! They shaved off almost HALF of the bronzer amount, but are still charging $28. I noticed this after my beloved bronzer ran down to the tin after only a week and a half with the new box, and I looked at my old box and low and behold - I saw the new shady change. After contacting Benefit customer service and getting the runaround, it's apparent that they don't give a toot about their customers, and I'll be finding a new bronzer as a result. I can't afford over $30 for bronzer every other week. My 12 year streak has come to an end. They just lost a LOYAL customer.
Although I have olive skin, I'm pale. I use sunscreen daily so I don't get a tan in the summer. When I want the sun-kissed glow (wearing a sundress, hanging out with friends) and don't want to be ridiculed by my pastiness, I throw on some Hoola. It is a golden color and doesn't look fake.
This really is one of the best bronzers out there. I am very fair skinned, and i can wear it light so its not crazy looking, and i can use it on darker skins. I swear this stuff looks great on everyone. Love that its a matte (no shimmer!). It can even be used on men to give them a little color that's natural looking.
Oh Hoola how i love thee! I have used this product for 8 years and it somehow even to this day still surprises me with its perfectness. I have never been able to find a more natural looking tan from a powder bronzer. In highschool my friend and i were known to walk into the bathroom looking winter white and stepping out looking perfectly sun kissed. And it was all thanks to hoola! It is also a great guy buy! When I do makeup for photoshoots and film and there is guy makeup involved i always breakout my hoola because it is so natural that it just looks like they are tan...not wearing makeup! love love love!!!!
I have light skin and when i try bronzers it looks so fake and not the right color. not with hoola. it makes me look bronze and not fake bronze. its perfect. everyone should buy this. it was the first box powder i got and i totally made me want to buy every other one.
This product gave me a wonderful natural tan. The color is really great because it shows up on my skin when I first apply it, but after blending I just look naturally tanned. I even like the brush it comes with. And a little goes a very long way.
A really nice, matte bronzer. On my skin tone it doesn't bronze so much, because I'm already so tanned, but I use it in place of a blush just to lightly contour and it works really well. The fact that it's matte just makes it look really nice and natural.
I have pale skin and thought this would look a bit daft. When I applied it for the first couple of times I was not overly keen. However now I have mastered the art of which parts of my face I want it on and which brush is best to apply it with I cannot imagine using anything else. Yes it is expensive. However it last for a very long time and is pretty. Also it doesn't really smell of anything which is always a plus.
Hoola is amazing it is the perfect bronze glow and it great for creating a just-come-back-from-somewhere-really-sunny look!!! Also because it's matte it is great for using to contour your cheek bones a gives your face a sculpted look. i use it with a blush like thrrrob, benetint or coralista and a highlighter like moon beam, high beam or girl meets pearl!
I love bronzer to give me a little color but I don't usually want the shimmer it gives me. This is perfect. It is not too dark and not too light. You can blend it very easily. I use it all over and to contour.
Wish the brush was more like the one they put in Bella Bamba.
I LOVE this bronzer! I have very fair skin & it looks so natural on it. I've been using this for years & can't be without it in the summer. It's great to use in the hollow of your cheeks. And 1 box will last you forever so it's well worth the money!!
I have tried different bronzers over the years, and this is so far the best one. It gives me the perfect glow without looking too obvious, and it last all day. I mostly apply it on the outer parts of my face and use blush on my cheeks, and that gives me the perfect glow. I just love it.
i use it to contour my cheeks below the pink blusher, it so matte it stays longer hours than my pink blusher. so i tried to seal my coralista with very thin layer of hoola, and voila! it looks like i'm having dallas on my cheeks and stays till late evening.
Very good powder that makes a natural and fine complexion ! I love it ( as much as the 6 others I have from Benefit ) !
Perfect matte bronzer. Looks great on my medium to tan skintone. Love this product, and I'm not one to use bronzer. I like how it is not shimmery and looks natural.
very soft and it makes me look tan, without being to dark. just a natural, healthly look ...
I bought this product after trying numerous bronzers about 3 or 4 years ago. I've tried others (just because they were cheap and there) after Hula- and NOTHING comes close!! This bronzer cannot be beat...the natural tan color is awesome! Gives you that "I was just on vacation" look in seconds! This product has no typical orangy color, or too much shimmery powder like alot of other bronzers on the market. Being born n raised in Jersey- bronzer is a MUST for our make up collections (Have you seen MTVs Jersey Shore- enouh said!) This wins as THE BEST bronzer ever! I just ordered another- can't wait till it gets here!!
After struggling to find a great bronzer I found one after going to Ulta one day! Hoola is amazing in that you can build the intensity to your liking. The product goes on smooth and leaves you with that " just went to the beach" look. You can wear this bronzer everyday just to give your skin a warm glow. I also love that this product lasts a long time, comes in an adorable box and I love the applicator!
i have very rosey skin , i use green corrector them some kind gorgeous , then one hot minute , i love it, i still have color , lasts all day , i look great , i get alot of compliments plus no allergic reaction . couldnt ask for better
This bronzer is the most important part of my makeup collection. I don't leave home without it... literally in my purse at all times. It is the perfect bronze glow without making my face orange or adding sparkle to bring out the oil in my face. It does not over-bronze and make my face look face. Its the perfect medium and i get all my friends to buy it. we are all hooked. I will never stray away.
I use this to create a sharper look on my face, being as asian we have rounder face and this helps alot! :D
I absolutely love knowing that no matter how pale I get in the winter months in the dull and dreary midwest, I can transport myself to Maui with just one sweep of Hula. While some mild blending is necessary to "fake" the perfect glow, Hula brings the golden tones to the surface of my cheekbones and compliments the natural pigments of my skin. I am happy to tote around the little box of sunshine and proud to whip out its cute little acoutrement aqua brush too!
I love this powder when I need to add a little extra color to my face but want it to look as natural as possible. It makes a great contouring powder as well!
I LOVE IT! For me it's perfect bronzer, matte contouring blush, and eye shadow! love color, love texture! must have!
Cute brush for serious contouring! I use it everyday. I am very pale and can use just the right amount to get great contouring for my shade or it can be built up for darker shades. Great for everyone!
I live in South Africa and unfortunately the Benefit products here are not cheap! So when I buy a product I carefully consider it from all angles. I have many bronzers and so thought I would save buying Hoola for a later date, but when I tried it I just feel in love with it. Hoola smooths on easily and does not leave blothcy marks like so many other cosmetics!
Amazingly, even though it only comes in one colour which seems to be dark (and I am quite pale) it seems to suit every skin tone! You can build more colour by applying more layers. The brush also seemed to be of strange shape at first but the trick is to apply lightly and add more as desired - don't plunge the brush into the powder - less is always more. Even if you do get a patchy spot or two, because it is so light Hoola blends in easily with the use of a finger.
Best bronzer ever! It provides the perfect bronze color that looks very natural.
I am in love with this bronzer. It's matte so it's perfect for contouring. I've had it for almost a year now and I still have a lot of product left. I'm a medium olive skin tone, so at first I thought it would be too light and would not show up on my skin but it's the perfect shade and blends in nicely so it looks completely natural.
Love how this bronzer doesn't have a shimmer, and that it is not orange. That way, I can use it all over if I want! Also makes an excellent contour color!
I have quite fair skin and so I tend to look orange with too much bronzer on, but this is a great shade for me. I had Dallas in a mixed box, but found it slightly too dark. Hoola is perfect though - it gives me a really nice natural bronze glow. Plus the brush is so soft on my skin!!
i have had this for almost a year - using a little almost every day (plus letting people borrow it during the summer)! not for the faint of heart - well actually if you apply lightly it's fine - you need a bigger brush to get more even though. the color is great on everyone, depending on how much you put on...unless you are super fair skinned, perhaps. overall, i really like it and seriously lasts much longer than ANYTHING else.
As a makeup artist I am constantly trying out new products including bronzers, but I just keep coming back to Hula. It is truly a not orange, and not shimmery bronzer, that just works! I highly recommend it.
I love this bronzer. I am very fair so it's hard for me to find bronzers that don't look too dark/fake on my skin. This one is perfect! The box lasts me forever and is really easy to build upon if I ever do happen to get a tan!
This is by far the best bronzer I have ever used. I am a tan addict and I struggled to find a powder that gave me a great looking bronze glow without the orange. That is, until I found Hoola. This powder looks amazingly natural- it gives a great tan glow wothout the ugly orange. I really could not live without this one piece of makeup!!!!
I have always had a hard time finding a bronzer that would work with my complexion. I have VERY fair skin with cool undertones. Everything would look too red or dark on me. However I have found this! Hoola is very buildable so I can use it lightly for conturing. It is also not very shimmery which makes it wonderful for conturing the face as well as neck. I love this bronzer!
I love this powder! It gives me a perfect bronzed look without being shimmery or orange. Everyone should have this in their beauty arsenal!
Love Benefit and I read the reviews and everyone seems to love Hoola. I made the mistake of assuming this was going to be on the light side. Very dark, so if you're on the pale side, make sure you go with a very light hand. But I felt it was still too dark for me.
I've been using this product for over a year now and I absolutely love it! The shade is perfect for contouring and bronzing. I even use it as an eye shadow sometimes. It's not too talc-y and applies very smooth to the face. I have normal to dry skin. I hit pan a few months ago and after my initial sadness, it's still going strong. This stuff lasts forever!
It has great pigmentation, not orange but not muddy looking, it gives you a natural bronze look, has NO SHIMMER!! It's so hard to find a bronzer with absolutely no shimmer!
A little bit goes a long way due to its incredible pigmentation.
Great for summer and winter!!!
Don't think twice before getting it!
I've had it for such a long time and I haven;t even made a dent on it!
This bronzer is perfect for warming up your face and giving your complexion that color it needs, especially in the winter. I also like to use it to contour my cheeks to give it more definition.
This bronzing powder is hands-down the most natural-looking I've used. I have tried powders, gels, liquids...during the summer I get a little color, and this blends perfectly as powder...during the winter, I'm looking for a little pick-me-up that is still natural-looking and moisturizing. This is it! The size is perfect too, in case I want to throw it into a purse or bag on my way.
I love my little box of powder, I use it every day and make my face look a few pounds slimer with this little box. I use the brush included because it applies the product in a stripe across my cheeks and theni buff it with a larger brush. It goes onsmootly, it blends super nicely and the shade is perfect. I wiill certainly repurchase. The only reason I didn't give it 5 hearts is it's price but it will last you a long time so even at $28 it is worth it
With fall here and winter around the corner I thought, it's time to put Hoola away until Summer.
How wrong was I!
Hoola makes you look and feel sunny and healthy. With a tap of the brush and a flick of the wrist you get a warm glow that says "Aloha" to all near and far.
Be gorgeous all year around with Hoola.
I love this product because it gives you a healthy natural glow! It does not look fake or orange. It is just perfect!
From 8 years in the business and trying almost every bronzer on the market Hula is truly my favorite. Not only does it work on many different skin tones it has been the only bronzer I found that does not give one hint of red or orange. My clients all love this product and I have purchased for many of clients who I teach makeup classes to. My first experience with Hula was when I saw Rihannas makeup artist using it on her and noticed how natural and beautiful it looked. After that I became a fan and have been using it 7 years and counting!
Awesome bronzer! Works great to define the cheekbones! But I love to brush it all over my face just to add a little more color! Part of my everyday make up routine!
REALLY good at naturally contouring the face. Looks natural over benetint as a blush. Awesome.
This stuff works wonders for me! I sweep it all over the face to darken me up a bit when I'm tan...normally I'm light complected. I love that it has no shimmer or sparkle as I have oily skin and don't need added shine. This is the first bronzer I've found that does a perfect job of bronzing!
This is a great product, but it must be used very sparingly otherwise you might look orange. If done correctly though you really do look like you have been sunkissed all year round. :)
My favorite bronzer ever! It's perfect for an all over glow or contouring! I don't know where I would be without it!
Just the right amount of color to help contour cheeks/nose - not orange or sparkly. I wear it to work, daily.
I absolutely LOVE my hoola!! It gives me great color and coverage, just makes my skin glow. 2 thumbs up!!
Best bronzing powder on the market! It last for months,there's no shimmer,and it gives a perfect bronze look! You don't look orange at all (Use it with a big fluffy brush to for an even look) I love it and use it everyday :)
Have been using for years now--possibly 6-7..? I am very fair-skinned in the winter, but can get very tan if I try. I've found this product works for both sides of me. Just a light sweep does the trip to make me look sunkissed and "alive" in the winter and never looks fake. In the summer, it's the perfect compliment to my tan. Recently, however, I LOVE using it as an eyeshadow. Whether alone, with eyeliner, or with another color shadow over--this bronzer sets my lids to the perfect natural bronzed shade, or works well to prep and put something else over. LOVE!
Hoola is one of the best bronzers I have ever used! I love how the color is matte and blends easily with my medium toned skin. I think it's a great product for contouring and overall gives a natural bronze look. Perfect product for the summer :)
I do notice that the color CAN make skin look a little "dirty"...that is why I use it to contour my cheek bones and it is PERFECT for that. I think it is a great all-over bronzer for those who have a darker tan or more olive toned skin. :)
Hoola is the finest bronzer! You can cake it on or lightly dust it and it never looks orange!!!
It gives the most noticeable tan than all the bronzers I've tried. I just wish it wasn't so flat. A tiny bit of shimmer can go a long way.
Seriously, the best bronzer ever. It doesn't give you that fakey orange look and no shimmer, which are huge pluses for me. Love, love, love, oh and the packaging is adorable!
This bronzer is absolutely perfect once you learn how to apply it correctly. Too much on the brush to begin with and you may end up looking dirty, but with the right amount you have a lush sun kissed collour. The colour can be added to the bridge of the nose, forehead and cheekbone to add a sunkissed feel.
My fav' bronzer ever ! x
For a natural looking tan ---> HooLa <3 !
I don't use this product as a bonzer. I use it to contour my cheek bones and jaw line a.k.a. to hide my double chin and fat cheeks. It works! Go easy on the application. Start with a little product on your brush and add more as you go. If you are not careful you will look like you have rolled around in dirt. Not cute.
Not a fan, sadly. Maybe because im not good at applying bronzer or i am too fair, but i tried my friends box of this and it was truly dirt slapped across my face. Maybe i can pop in to the counter and get the girl to show me when where and how this should be used, because id love to collect all box o powders. Other bronze loving ladies swear by this, so maybe more investigation is due on my part. Hmmm.
Hoola is perfect to use for contouring around your cheeks and forehead. It is a perfect matte color that make me look super (but naturally) tan!
I'm fair-skinned so this shows up very well. It's hard to find good matte bronzers, but this one is perfect and is so useful for contouring! I'm not a huge fan of the brush, but it does apply very well with an angled blush brush. Would definitely buy again!
I LOVE Hoola. It gives you the perfect bronze look without looking fake or orange. There is no shimmer to it so it looks natural. It looks good on most skin tones, which is what I love about it, because I'm pretty light-skinned so it makes it easy for me to put it on without looking fake. LOVE this product and I will buy it again and again!
The perfect matte bronzer for almost all skin tones, ideal for contour, or all-over bronzing with a fan brush. I especially love using Hoola to contour at my hairline, since it blends perfectly with my fair skin and red hair. And the box powders last forever!
Great Bronzer Its that look of you have been out tanning at the beach without having to go to the beach plus its matte you just get the natural tann look. Than when you want to add shimmer and seen you can add extra products so you still get that tan glow without looking too glittery and shimmer. But you still have a natural tan base that is belevable.

We want to publish your question, so please:
Can I use this with Hello Flawless powder?
I was wondering if this would look okay in addition to hello flawless foundation powder.
Yes, I think you can do it.
Yes it really leaves a beautiful natural finish.
You sure can, gorgeous!
For a sheer, natural finish, sweep on hello flawless with the brush. With light, quick strokes, blend from the center of your face outward. For full coverage, apply evenly over entire complexion with the sponge. For spot cover-up, pat gently and blend over any areas where you want extra coverage.
Then, sweep hoola across chin, cheeks, and forehead with accompanying brush. To contour, use with our blush brush.

What is the source of the natural bristle of the brush?
The brushes in our box o' powders are made of goat hair.
Has anyone tried to use this to even out a tan line?If so, how'd it go?
I saw a tip that said it could be used in such a manner and I'm curious as to whether or not it would work. I do need a new bronzer anyway since I have gotten really tan over the summer and I thought this might be a good way to kill two birds with one stone.
it depends how tan you tan line is. If it's a light tan line then you can cover it up with Hoola if you build up the color. And there's no orange streaks, it's a nice brown color with a nice velvety texture.
Fake or Real or different colors?
I have been using Hoola for many years, I sometimes buy it on ebay...but what I have discovered there is either fake Hoolas on ebay or there is different shades of Hoola. Sometimes I will get one the will leave your face looking really tan, and then another times I get one that seems like a mat tint and does not tan your face like some I have had before. Is there fake Hoolas out there because I can really tell the difference or is there different shades of Hoolas? Thanks

my skin color is fairly light so im pale but not white white. is this bronzer good for like winter time and mainly is it over all face or contour
i need to no if its overall face and does it make me look orange !!!
I use this mainly for a Contour on my cheek bones. Although, it does also work great all over the face. The powder it's self stays on for a long time. But I would suggest priming your face with porefessionall to even out your face and create a nice base.
I am just like you (very pale) and i was scared as well because i thought it would turn me a weird color but it gives you this subtle glow that is sooo amazing that you should definetly should give this product a try you will not be dissapointed!Also to answer your question it could be both. A great contour for you cheekbones or an all over color to give you a tan.
I have fair skin this is perfect for it. I definitely does not look fake, it's very natural looking. Definitely overall face bronzer.
Hoola is great for whenever you want to achieve a tan look and to contour your face. As a devoted Hoola fan, I would not be using it for 5 years if it left me orange. It's truly gives a perfect matte tan so you don't look too made up, just natural. Since you are fairly light, a little will go along way! Enjoy!
I have light skin, and this doesn't look orange or "dirt" brown...it's very natural. It's also sheer, so don't be intimidated when you see the actual palette...it looks super dark!! But, it's not. It's just very compressed in the compact. It is matte, but it does not look chalky at all. This is because it is very finely milled- the particles are extremely minute. It gives the appearance of putting a sheer, matte, bronze gel on the skin. It really melds with your complection. You can apply this where the sun naturally hits, and it will not look like you are wearing makeup.
I've tried dozens...this is the most natural and convincing bronzer I've ever used.
I use it both for contouring and over all depending on the day, I first bought mine in Winter and I was so happy I felt like I'd been spending days n a beach. It's definitely not orange in the least. I don't use the brush it comes with, I use a powder brush and always make sure I tap it off so I don't get too much on my face.
This bronzer will never make you orange. It's a miracle! You can absolutely use it everywhere. For all over, or for contour it works perfectly.
Dust this soft bronze powder over your complexion for a healthy, natural looking "tan" year-round. No tanning bed necessary! Complete with soft, natural-bristle cheek brush. It's pure color - no sparkle and no shine! You're going to love this bronzer and we guarantee, no orange!
Does this work for darker skin tones?
My skin tone and hair are similar to Selma Hayek... Will this color work for me or would you suggest a different shade?
it will probably give you a nice highlight. since you're darker, you can really build up the color because on darker skin it won't look as obvious as on lighter skin tones. Or you can try Dallas. It's darker with plum undertones.
I have dark skin and hair, not quite as dark as yours though but it works amazingly on me! If you have a benefit stand at a mall or a sephora near you i would go in and try some on, but it should work well on you too! it is a dark bronzer so I think i looks better on dark skin anyway, but it is also very easy to adjust the shade you want by how much you put on your face. The hoola also doubles as a powder, so I don't use it as just a bronzer!
I think this would be perfect for your skin tone, just the slight bit of colour you need and not too orangey which would not compiment your latino skin tone ? go for it its a great bronzer very verstile :) I would also recomend CORALista with this :) they look great together
yeah, i was so unsure at first because i am pretty dark. but then i thought that i should give it a shot-BEST decision ever! it gives me the cute glow that i really want, and despite having dark skin it SHOWS UP! quite a great buy.
It is great for any skin tone. My sister and I have two completely different skin tones, but it works on both cases! This product is worth it.
Its only in one shade. but its looks great on all skin tones. Great for contouring.
