Benefit Bronzing collection


 Can you believe Hoola bronzer is over 15 years old! The little bronzer in a box is a matte warm toned bronzer. It's easy to go over the top with this one as it's a pretty pigmented powder but use the mini brush included to softly dust it over the high points of the face. This is not a great shade to use as a contour but nice for a sun-kissed effect.

Benefit's latest product in their bronzing lineup is 'Dew the Hoola'.
 The packaging is a beautiful bronze metallic bamboo effect pump. It has a similar tone to Hoola but wouldn't really be suitable for lighter skins. It's totally matte thank goodness, I don't think it would work as a shimmer. You can blend a small pump with your regular foundation to warm your winter foundation and take it through to the summer. Alternatively just buff a little over the bridge of your nose or as a liquid bronzing blush.

New to the collection is a cute gold handled brush with the same bamboo effect. It's a domed, loose haired brush so it softly buffs the bronzing liquid over and into the skin.
 The final product which is also new for Benefiit is the Hoola zero tanlines.
 A huge 147ml tube of bronzing gel. The packagaing is genius! It's a squeezy tube with a sponge buffer in the cap. Use the sponge to buff the gel over the body and then just clip it back onto the cap. 

  The gel will give an instant sheer wash of a golden tan. You can simply build the layers up if you want it a little darker. Great for applying to body when you haven't had time to fully tan. It blends nicely without streaking and once dry it's transfer proof (not waterproof).
 Benefit claim it has a soft beachy fragrance but I think it just smells like the classic fake tan scent.

 All of these products are available now here.


  1. Looking at all these gorgeous bits makes me wish bronzer suited me more! I usually use Nars Laguna or the Guerlain Joli Teint, I've not even tried the original Hoola yet eek x

  2. I've heard mixed things about Dew the Hoola... the formula seems great, but looks a bit orange.
