Best Matte Bronzing Powder – Benefit Hoola Review
Benefit’s Hoola has been the best-selling bronzer in the UK for the past five years. It’s a high quality bronzer, natural, non-cakey application is great value for money and as soon as you try it, you can see why it’s the UK’s best-selling bronzer.
If there’s one thing that I’d love to be able to do, it is to master the art of contouring, but Hoola makes is somewhat easy!
Bronzers are something I’m lacking in my make up collection at the moment but when a personalised Hoola arrived and I couldn’t wait to use it! Even though I lack skills in contouring, I think I can just about manage to sweep this lightly over my face evenly for a sunkissed look!
Matching Hoola Lipgloss* – £14.50
Hoola is a soft, warm bronze powder with a matte finish, which is great for anyone with oily skin. I’ve only ever used shimmery bronzers so it’s nice to try one that’s matte. I much prefer the flawless, non-sparkly look these days – even during the summer – but if do I fancy highlighting any part of my face, I’ll use Benefit High Beam or Smashbox highlighting wand for a healthy glow.
As it’s buildable with a natural finish, it is suitable even for fair/pale skin. Don’t be put off by the brown shade and don’t be too heavy handed on it at first because the powder is buildable.
Swirl the brush in the powder and tap the excess off before applying it to your face. I’ve only ever used one or two sweeps of this over BB cream just to warm my yellow skin tone up a bit. Each time I’ve used this, I’ve used a primer so this powder has lasted many hours and I only needed one light re-touch through out the day.
The UK’s Best-Selling Bronzer
I can see Hoola becoming a staple in my make up bag! But if there’s one tiny thing that I’d change about this is that I wish the packaging was round so that I can swirl it my blush brush around in it.
