Hoola Matte Bronzer vs Hoola Glow Shimmer Bronzer.
As for how this new glowy Hoola compares to the original, there's not much between them.
One has shimmer and one doesn't. That's it.
Both are stunning. Here's a side-by-side comparison so you can see the difference in finishes on the skin.
I did notice the shimmer formula had a little more fallout than the matte bronzer, but as long as you tap off the excess from your brush before you apply, you’ll be fine.
So, which one you choose really depends on how you want to use the product (as a bronzer, contour, highlighter, or all the above) and what kind of bronzer finish you prefer.
Or you could wear them together. On your face. Or as an eyeshadow! The matte Hoola bronzer applied in the crease of the eyelid with Hoola Glow pressed into the centre of the lid is a smoky, shimmer bronze *chef's kiss*.
Final verdict... is Hoola Glow as good as (or better than) Hoola Matte Bronzer?
Honestly, I didn't think I would like the shimmer version of one of my all-time favourite bronzers. But wow, I LOVE IT.
It's definitely on par with the original Hoola, which I'd still use as a contour and for adding a faux tan look to the face, paired with some blush to perk my skin back up.
But Hoola Glow is more of a does-it-all product that instantly adds life to your face with zero effort.
I feel like you can wear it on its own. No other bronzer. No blush. No highlighter. Somehow, the one product gave me everything I wanted, which is wild because I normally wouldn't be caught dead without blush.
In other words, Hoola Glow is freaking awesome. But it's also limited edition, so be quick before it's gone.
