Packaging:

The “Hoola Matte Bronzer” by Benefit Cosmetics is packaged in a square box with a built-in mirror and a small applicator brush. The brush is blue and white and has very soft bristles that are great for contouring. The packaging for the “natural bronze” color is mauve and has two bamboo sticks and a Hawaiian flower design on it. The “natural light bronze” packaging has the same design but is beige in color. The product and brand name are printed in light blue and white on the box. The packaging is convenient and travel friendly.

Texture:

This product has a powdery texture.

Smell:

The bronzer has a very mild smell that is not overpowering.

Colors Available and Color Tested:

The “Hoola Matte Bronzer” comes in two colors: natural bronze and natural light bronze. We tested the natural light bronze shade.

Application:

For optimal results and a natural tan look, apply the bronzer on the cheekbones, chin and forehead.

Effect:

We tested the “Hoola Matte Bronzer” in the natural light bronze shade for both: natural and more daring looks. After application we noticed how soft and easy to use the brush was. It applied the perfect amount of product without overpowering the look. The powder is buildable, so it was easy to choose the intensity of tan we wanted to appear on the skin. The finish of the “Hoola Matte Bronzer” was perfectly matte and it did not crease throughout the day. Additionally, the bronzer had a very long staying power and did not need to be touched-up after the initial application. The light shade did not brighten the skin tone too much, instead, it allowed it to appear naturally illuminated. However, we found that for women with medium skin tones, the natural bronze shade was too dark and the natural light bronze too light. So, we recommend checking the bronzer at the store before purchase.

Price:

The “Hoola Matte Bronzer” by Benefit Cosmetics comes in two sizes and prices that average $16/3.96mL and $30/8mL which is a median price compared to other products in the same range such as MAC Cosmetics’ “Bronzing Powder” which retails at $34/10mL and Too Faced’s “Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer” which sells at $30/8mL. It remains however, less expensive than other products in a different range like Clinique’s “True Bronze Pressed Powder” which retails at $29/9.6mL.

    Hoola for life!

    Not only is the hoola bronzer light textured and pigmented, it is very long-lasting. The “mini” size lasts for months for me and i use it every single day. It can be used as bronzer (on the cheeks with no need for blush) and it can be used on the whole face to give that tanned natural look. It has a bit of a red undertone to it, so may not be ideal for those looking for a strong pure brown bronzer. In my opinion, one of the best bronzers for all skin tones.

    I simply adore this bronzer. Its very buildable which is an amazing thing for me because alot of bronzers I’ve tried are very harsh from the get go. It wont leave you looking like an orange which is something you cant say for alot of bronzers. It simply warms up your complexion in the most beautiful way.

    My go to bronzer. I definitely went through maybe four packs, i just hit pan with my current one and already purchased the limited edition giant pack! I love the formula, color payoff, the universal tone it has, i mean i can use it on myself, my mom, or my sister in law (we have very different skintones) and it would still look amazing! Love it!

    Very pigmented, effortlessly blendable, perfect color for bronzing/contouring (neither orange nor grey undertones) and long lasting. I found the product very densely packed as it took me a long time to hit pan in it, highly recommended!

    I’ve been using this bronzer for YEARS! It’s been one of my favorites since the first time I’ve used it. It’s highly pigmented (so be sure to use a light hand when dipping in and applying), blends like a dream, and doesn’t budge all day! I’m very fair, and the original Hoola still works with my skin tone! I highly recommend it!

    A must have

    Hoola bronzer is one of the best bronzers in makeup industry. Packaging: – light weight and travel friendly. The cardboard is more eco friendly than plastic. It comes with a tiny mirror yet it is useful. – tip: the pan can be removed from the package if you gently break the cardboard so You can put it in a magnetized palette. Payoff: – pigmented yet not splotchy. Buildable and great for contouring or bronzing. Matches a lot of skin tones since it has kinda neutral undertone. It is not too orangy or too taupy it is just the perfect bronzer color. Inclusivity: Thanks benefit for being very mindful, they came out with hoola lite which is suitable for fair skin tones and great for a no-makeup makeup for medium tones. And hoola toasted and caramel for deeper skin tones. It is a must have product.

    Worth all the rave!

    The hoola bronzer has been crazed for the longest time and now I totally understand why everyone is so obsessed with it! I never did use the brush included but when it comes to the product itself I absolutely loved it. The color is great, exactly what you need from a bronzer, not too light not too dark, not too red or orange. It makes you look tan but not burned or fake tan. The color is definitely worth 5 stars.
    The powder’s consistency and pigmentation is 5 stars as well. The texture is very blendable and doesn’t look cakey or powdery when applied.
    The only downside is that it is kind of expensive and you don’t get too much product for it. But it is worth it. I would totally recommend it.

    This is one of my best bronzers that i have used. and what i really liked about it is that it comes with a brush that makes it easier to apply on the face. Moneywise, it’s fair and lasts for a minimum of 8 months. the shade is almost applicable for a variety of skintones which makes it even better!

    This bronzer seriously suits most skin tones unless your of dark color. I have alot of bronzers but this one is just so easy and simple to use and is so flattering. So smooth on the skin also. A must in all makeup lovers collection. I just dont like the packaging and the brush it comes with. I wish I would be a round package like everything else. Because I love to use a big bronzing brush and the box is small.

    This matte bronzer is an essential in my makeup routine. It gives a natural contour. i use it to contour my nose cheeks and to define my crease if im not applying eye shadow or to set my contour after using a creamy contour. it doesn’t stain and its so powdery and blend-able. its an essential in my makeup kit. Highly recommended
