For Christmas I received Benefit’s Gimmie Some Lovin’ set, which included Benefits famous Hoola Bronzer. Ever since I have known about Benefit, I have been dying to get my hands on it, but it’s always been too much for just a bronzer in my opinion. However, receiving as a gift and as a cheaper way to buy the products, I was very happy to get this set, and the god sent bronzer.
Hoola bronzer is a matte tan colour that doesn’t scream muddy brown or disastrous orange but a complimentary colour for adding a glow to the skin or as a contour. I use a small contour brush like the Sigma tampered highlighter brush or a duo fibre brush to apply to the contour, and around the temples. It blends like a beauty, there are no obvious tide lines, and works perfectly to blend into the skin creating the tanned look rather than obvious contour too. I find this works really well for even my pale skin, which I’m super, happy about.
There’s no sparkle, no glitter, just matte bronzer, which yes is matte, but I feel it still provides a healthy finish rather than plain faced look.
At £23.50 it’s not the cheapest bronzer, but its quickly replacing my MAC Refined Golden, and we all know how much I loved that bronzer. I just find this one blends and looks slightly more natural to my skin tone.
It is however, the UK best selling bronzer and has won lots of awards, so I can hardly compete with that statistic. I am in love with a bronzer and her name is hoola…
