I absolutely adore this bronzer. It is super easy to apply with the brush supplied, easy to blend and is buildable. I also apply it over the top of my foundation during summer to make it a little darker if I need to and use it as an eye shadow as well. The box is really cute and fits everywhere. I can't recommend this product enough!

Great for contouring not so much as a bronzer
I have light to medium skin tone with a neutral undertone. As a contouring powder, Hoola is wonderful! It comes with a small brush which is perfect to highlight the cheekbones. You don’t need much as it’s very fine and pigmented. As a bronzer, however, Hoola disappoints. It’s too greyish on my skin tone and there is no reflective shine or heathy looking glow at all.
Great neutral bronzerThis product is really great for anyone needing a bronzer and aren't sure of their undertones as it is very neutral and can work on so many skin tones! I think its a fantastic bronzer, although it may be overhyped as sometimes i find it doesn't always blend the way i want if i'm using a foundation it doesn't work with.
THE BEST BRONZERI absolutely adore this bronzer. It is super easy to apply with the brush supplied, easy to blend and is buildable. I also apply it over the top of my foundation during summer to make it a little darker if I need to and use it as an eye shadow as well. The box is really cute and fits everywhere. I can't recommend this product enough!
I’m glad I tried itI’m thinking i need to try lighter hoola shade, I’m way too fair for this. I used the brush provided once and threw it out. This bronzer goes on nicely and blends well.
Benefit Bronzer all day!I love this bronzer! I’ve got the mini- and I have a brush that fits perfectly in the smaller box.
Application is easy- a little goes a long way.
Can be used as an all over bronzer, or a contour.
Is isn’t sparkly or shimmery- which is a real pro for me. It looks more natural.
I’m of light complexion, but often fake tan. It looks great and I often wear it on my face by itself to have some coverage.
Love love love this product.
Awkward sizeI found the size of this awkward as I am use to bronzer in a larger/wider compact. I found it didn't sit well onto of my foundation and kind of oxidised. I would try in a store before purchasing
Natural lookThis is one of the most use product that I have in my collection
Best bronzer!I love bronzer and I use every day. Occasionally I like to buy alternative brands but I always go back to this. It's a fabulous every day bronzer- its subtle, not glittery and lasts all day. It really lives up to its cult status.
Best BronzerBy far this is the best bronzer for all skin tones. It has no shimmer and is not muddy looking. There is no orange or gray tone to this product. It gives the skin this gorgeous tan all year round. Award winning in my opinion.
AwesomeGot this product as a sample from one of my orders and it gives a lovely glow which can be used for contouring as well as being able to give a nice sunkissed look. It is also very lightweight and easy to apply!
My all time favourite!!Great bronzer for all year round!! In summer it’s the perfect shade and great for contouring while in winter I can get quite pale and it still seems to be the perfect colour for me!! Very easy to blend and doesn’t turn orange!!
ClassicPerfect bronzer for an all over glow or for some light contouring
The best bronzer!Looks great on pale skin tones and can be additionally used on eyes for an easy day look. Would recommend purchasing in the mini size as it lasts a very long time. I have had my mini Hoola bronzer for a year and a half and still have not hit pan!
Awesome bronzer but get the full sizeLove this bronzer, looks nice, stays on and looks natural but I got the mini version which I regret as the brush is also tiny so it’s hard to sweep on for even coverage over the face. I’ll be getting the full size next time for sure.

Love itSuch a nice bronzer than isn’t orange, gives a genuinely nice glow
All round bronzerLove Benefits Hoola bronzing powder as it doesn’t contain shimmer and is versatile - I’ve used it as a bronzer, eyeshadow and contour! It also doesn’t leave your skin looking patchy in dry areas. The compact size is perfectly paired for transport in a clutch.
Loves itGreat bronzer. Not too heavy. Last forever! I love the colour it gives my cheeks.
Best bronzing powderI absolutely love the benefit range and this bronzer is no exception. It is extremely easily blended out and very pigmented! I also use this as contouring powder,Next time I will go for the hoola lite for when I’m not tanned as this does have an orange look on my skin however it is a bronzer :)
Lovely colourThis looks Devine on my cheeks, definitely my go to product for a sub kissed glow!
Pigmented contour productSkin type: combination
Skin colour: neutral/ light-medium
Eye colour: Hazel
Foundation/ Concealer used with this powder most often: giorgio armani LS, Giorgio armani PF, it cosmetics bye bye under eye, Nars radiant creamy concealer.
I do like this bronzer but I am not sure it is my HG. I got the mini to try it and perhaps it is the brush it comes with that I don't like. It will leave really harsh lines on cheekbones and after blush/ highlight my face looks like Neapolitan icecream in the tub.
With other brushes it works much better but I think with all other powders combined in a makeup look I just have too powdery a result. I will continue to try it with different brushes to see if I can improve the results. It is great as a transition colour on eyes though but I wouldn't pay that amount for an eyeshadow.
Love itThis bronzer leaves a really nice sun glow to the skin when applied. Sits really nicely on a lot of skin tones. I have had this bronzer for nearly 3 years and still have not hit pan, love it!
No good for fair skinI'm an nc15 and this is straight up orange on me. I do however use it on other people. The formula is excellent and it is suited well to medium - tanned skin.
LOVE ITEasy blendable powder & such an amazing colour
Awesomefavourite bronzer, blends amazing worth every dollar, onto my 3rd one
Great productWas recommended this one after finding a lot of bronzers to be too orange. So glad to have found this one to warm the face without being orange. I have mainly used it for contouring so far. I found it to be very pigmented and blended easily. I find the box a bit annoying and never use the included mirror but would find it useful for travelling. I have fair skin and could've gone for the lighter shade, but this one still works fine with my skin tone. Would re-purchase and I understand why it's a cult product.
Love this bronzerI love using this bronzer and I only have the small one and it has lasted me for a long long time. It's the perfect colour for bronzing and contouring with one product.
Can’t go wrongI’ve been using this product for a few years and continue to repurchase! Versatile and easy to blend.
Favourite bronzer!This was my first ever bronzer that I purchased because of the rave from friends and reviews I read online, and it totally exceeded my expectations. It gives such a gentle warmth to the skin for a natural look, but can also be very buildable which I also use for contouring. I've tried many other bronzers but always come back to this one - it's definitely my favourite in my collection!
Changed my face!!I didn't own a bronzer before I bought this, I was convinced I didn't need one. But oh my gosh, it has completely changed my makeup routine and face! It is the perfect shade and a great all over bronzer or contour.
Worth the hypeThis is my favourite, most perfect bronzer that lasts for ages!! I use this everyday as a natural contour/bronzer, no need for separate products. I fake tan and this is the perfect shade for when I'm pale or tanned. Very buildable, and the full-size version lasts forever so it is a great price overall. I don't trust anything else to look so natural!
No sparkle!I got this in the Sweeten Up Buttercup pack, and was so happy to finally have a bronzer without sparkles, so it would look like a shadow. The mini size is enough to do me for a couple years, I think, as I don't use much, given my skin is fair enough for the new lighter shade (just have to blend it more than the lighter one, I think).
Great Product!!I definitely recommend this to anyone with tan skin looking for a bronzer. This product is easy to work with and i love it!!
Good for contouringI really like to use this bronzer to contour because it's matte and more cool-toned than my regular bronzer. It works well when used with the flat brush that comes with it in the pack.
Nice matte bronzerBuildable and non-sparkly! Doesn’t clog my pores and helps add natural colour without looking orange or powdery. Works nicely as an eyeshadow too. I’m sad that it contains palm oil, but otherwise a great product.
Nice bronzerGives the face a really healthy glow. I like to use it on my eyes to warm it up also. Seems to last forever so definitely worth the money. Overall it's great, it's just that I personally really dislike the cardboard packaging.
Too cuteFor such a small box it lasts forever! This is the best for travelling & just the right size... And who doesn't love hoola - honestly the best bronzer on the market.
the rave is realPricy for a bronzer / single pan contour. But worth every penny , the included brush is what makes this super easy for me to reach for and has soon become my go to bronzer and contour shade.
The product will never end!! , so its worth your money . The brush is great for nose contour and of course any other contour.
I will repurchase if it ever finishes! I can't live without it.
Amazing!Have been looking for a bronzer for some time now and decided to give this a shot since the reviews were so good. Only bought a small one but I am loving it so far! It really gives the face a natural glow and it doesn’t cake up on ur foundation or look patchy. Definitely getting a second one!
Multi use BronzerThis is by far one of the most blendable/buidlable brozers! it is perfect for bronzing, shaping out eyebrows if you have fairer eyebrows, eye shadow you name it.
Perfect shade for a slight sun kissed glow for a more natural look, but can also be built darker for a more contoured look.
There is no shimmer in the product which i LOOOVEEE how matte this Hoola is.
Packaging is cute, comes with inbuilt mirror if your on the go and need to touch up easy peasy.
Overall would highly recommend this product to everyone!
Love this!Really great formula, comparable to tarte if you have used their bronzers. Love the way it gives a soft natural bronzed look although this shade is too dark for me so definitely go the lite if your pale. The only thing I don't like is although the box is cute its kind of hard to get the product out of it.
Easy for newbies to "warm the face"I'm new to warming my face with bronzers so watched a few how-to videos before attempting, but the products I'd buy were either too shiny, glittery, orange, or dark. This one was recommended by a beauty guru for being none of the above, and now I know why I was struggling to make it look good -- the products were poor. This one has a grey undertone, which mimics shadows. Also like a shadow, it's matte. When it runs out, I'll get the newer lighter shade and see if that's even more foolproof.
love the colourI love this bronzer. The colour is perfect and there's no shimmer or orange colour. It lasts all day and I actually like the brush that comes with it. It sheds a little but the shape is good for enhancing the cheekbones. Took off a star because benefit aren't cruelty free but otherwise would give 5 stars
Holy grail!Im light in complexion (normally a nc20) and this is my ideal contour colour. I was hooked on Nars Laguna but then decided to give hoola a go as I bought it as a gift for a friend. Oh my! It’s amazing. Never judge a bronzer by is cover! I didn’t buy this for years because I thought the cardboard was tacky... but now I’m obsessed! I love the little brush it’s a great shape. Try it!
Best sellerThis is one of benefits best selling products for a reason. Really pretty bronzer. Easily blendable and buildable. Great product!
nice!A great lil contour palette thats very easy to carry around and reapply for a beautiful bronzed look!
bronze goddessThe BEST bronzer you can buy!!! makes you look sunkissed, is a buildable bronzer which looks sooo nice on the cheeks
GoodLooks healthy on the skin, however colour-wise i would give 7/10. it's kind of orangy-pink on my cheeks.
Great product!This is great for makeup beginner as the product is simple to use! If you need something for a natural look, this bronzer is nice and subtle. The mini size is great if you want to chuck it in your bag and take it everywhere.
Best bronzer!Love this bronzer! The colour is matte, buildable and doesn’t look cakey. Suits most skin tones. Would prefer if it came in a compact over the cardboard box.
Can't go wrongThis is the bronzer I know I can always rely on 100%. It's the most forgiving formula, that means you can't apply too much, its buildable, its natural and the colour is also the most complementary for a wide range of skin tones - not too cool-toned but also not a orange-y colour! The mini version is also great - don't underestimate its size because it can last an entire year with everyday use.
Great bronzerI bought this product in the mini size as a trial but I will definitely upgrade to the large size when I have run out. I have medium tone skin so I tend to blend this with a translucent powder to set my make up and it gives a natural glow without appearing too dark or orange.
Bronzed goddessI have fair skin, but love to be bronzed so I am always applying a spray tan. This product is great for both fair and bronzed skin tones as you can build it up to be more bronzed or a little more subtle. The brush is also the perfect angle to get right onto the cheek bones!
I like itEasy to blend and quite pigmented. However, i do find it quite powdery and the package isnt very convenient. For me, it gives more like adding warmth and dimension to the face, rather than a harsh contour.
Sun kissedThe most blendable bronzer I’ve ever used which allows you to create a natural sun kissed look, or you can contour with it. The brush that comes with is no good, use your own!
The most perfect bronzer ever createdI’ve had a few boxes, and I just love it! So smooth and easy to take with you. A must have in ever makeup kit
Absolute make-up bag stableMy favourite everyday bronzer. Some bronzers can just be way too much and as someone with fair skin I can easily control the shade of this with how much I apply. I am never without it!
Great bronzerI love this bronzer. It is warm toned, and looks great on the skin!
Holy Grail!I've tried so many similar products but always comes back to this. It gives me such a natural look and blends smoothly and evenly. A bit pricey but one lasts me over a year..a little goes a long way! Would highly recommend!
Go-to contouring bronzerThis has been my go-to contour colour for years and it lasts ages! I've finally hit pan on mine and I'm devastated. Great product, although a bit expensive.
Worth the hype!I bought this mostly because of the hype surrounding it and was not at all disappointed. It's perfect for contouring lightly and has become my favorite bronzer in my collection. It is perfect for fair to medium skin tones since it's not too heavy on the skin and gives you a nice, natural sculpted look. Perfect for giving a little warmth to the skin.
Pretty goodI bought this as a go to contouring bronzer. I really like it initially but was a little disappointed with how quickly it wore off. But overall I will say the color is perfect for my face and contouring, just may need something else for night time.
5 starsGreat bronzer with the right colour and not full of glitter. I'd definitely recommend getting the larger one (not the mini) as the mini is hard to load your brush up with enough powder.
Great bronzer!I was a makeup newbie when I started using this product about a year ago and I am in love! It's so easy to apply and blends out well. It's also a great size and has lasted me about a year (I don't use it everyday though).
Love itNatural looking, beautiful and matte. Pigmented but blends out easily. If I’m really lazy, this doubles up as eyeshadow.
Staple!I cannot rave more about these handy little mini Benefit products. So nifty and the company take into account that people need to trial before outlaying hard earned money for the full size item. Seriously, such a winner in my eyes!
This colour is actually amazing. I was deciding between this and the lite shade. I am light-medium and was hopeful it was not super pigmented so I could get away with this one and I was right. In saying that, a little goes a super long way, I only have to dust it on very lightly over a smidge of the Hoola contouring quickie stick. For reference, I am using GA luminous silk in shade 6.
niftyi bought the little version of this just for fun and since i didn't have a bronzer. i used it to contour my face a little as i'm not very good at it but the included brush made it easy. great packaging i must say. even has a little mirror in it. powder is a little dark for me but it works somehow with a bit of blending.
Good, not great for my very fair skinThis is such a cult product and I was looking to try a new bronzer after running out of my Nars Laguna, so I decided to get this one. I have very fair skin and cool/neutral tone. I find this a touch too dark and warm for me. I disagree with other reviewers who say this suits all skin tones - people with very fair skin might struggle a bit. You need to use a very light hand and blend a lot. I find this doesn’t blend as well as some other benefit powders or other bronzers I’ve tried. The brush that comes with it is a bit useless.
Not sure if I’d buy it again, just because of the colour match. Not a bad product, just not great for my colouring.
staple of my beauty routineI love this bronzer! The little brush that it comes with is perfect for creating a slight contour and I then follow up with a softer brush to blend out. It comes in a small box but last me for ages and it's a perfect colour - not too warm or orangey
Staple bronzerWorks for every skin tone. Love that it isn't shimmery - therefore it looks more natural. Unfortunately it is quite expensive though. If you have the money, definitely go for it!
Good colour but not long wearing and awkward box packageGood colour -matches my pale skin.
It seems to only last an hour on my foundation.
Awkward box package - I don't think I will buy this again.
GreatPerfect for everyday wear for a natural looking bit of colour, lasts all day long and can easily be used for a night and day look. The smaller size lasts a long time as a little goes a long way.
Holy grail bronzerDon't bother with any others! This is the best bronzer on the market. Perfect colour for lighter toned skin or build it up.... The consistency is so easy to work with & blend out.. I use this to contour, as an eyeshadow, bronzer etc. Its so versatile!! I seriously can't recommend enough. Also... it lasts a long time. I have had my current one for 2.5 years and still going strong!
Wasn't as expected!I saw the raves about this product and thought I should try it out. But whenever I use this bronzer the outcome always turn out ashy on my skin. I love the shade but it doesn't sit well on my skin :(
Worth to buyI was a bit sceptical in ordering this because the last few pictures of the model should a orangy look and I am Asian with ivory skin so it would just look awful. I kept reading all the reviews however which made me decide to get it in the end and I have no regrets! High pigmented and it has a very nice bronze colour! So why 4 star and not 5 star? The brush is really useless, not that great at all.
Worth the hypeBought the mini based on all the reviews & this is definately worth my 5 stars. I loved it the second it touched my face & blended really well despite me not having the greatest brush, but the more I used it the more I loved it so I splurged & bought the hoola bronzer brush. WOW! Glad I did. I can use this bronzer to pretty much highlight & contour my whole face. Love! Full size purchase coming up
Best bronzer on the marketIt’s no wonder this is a cult favourite, it is great coverage, a little goes a long way and because it’s on the cooler side it can be used for contouring and bronzing without leaving my face looking muddy. For someone with a light neutral skin tone this everything I look for in a bronzer. I bought the mini version but will definitely be re-purchasing in the larger size. Highly recommend.
Try the miniI have medium colour skin and this bronzer shows up well without being too muddy or orange. The mini has lasted me months so I’d recommend anyone who is on the fence about trying this product to purchase the mini first!
My go to bronzerI really like this product - I love the colour and how it is long lasting, and a little bit goes a long way.I bought this full sized and it is lasts for ages. This is my go to bronzer. Would most likely repurchase when this runs out!
Its okay, but is easy to over apply!I got this bronzer in the mini to test out and Im not completely sold on it for my skin tone.
The packaging is great and I think you get a decent amount of product for your money. I love the minis as a good way to text a product out!
I have also found that its very easy to over apply, but this is probably due to my limited make up skills!!
I think once winter is over and I have a bit of a tan it will look a lot better on my skin!
Radiant glowThe bronzer has been perfect to add a glow and some contouring to my face. It goes well with a fair complexion but can also be built upon for darker complexions.
Amazing BronzerIt’s not too warm so it’s good for contouring too! It’s super easy to blend out and looks great on me! I love it
Beautiful and subtleBeautiful bronzer that is not orange and nice and subtle. I often use with my dandelion blush. Mini has lasted me months as well.
Universally FlatteringA stunning bronzer if used with a light hand that flatters versatility without looking orange.
perfect healthy summer glowthis bronzer has the perfect undertone - not too muddy and cool but not orange! it looks like i've been to the beach tanning all summer and just looks stunning in person and on picture. I use it with a fluffy brush as a crease colour for that lazy day makeup too
great product but a bit darkI Love this product the powder is super light and it contours great however, having light skin it is a little to dark for me. I gave it to my friend that has a dark tone skin.
Couldn't live without this bronzer!I love Benefit's Hoola bronzer. It has been my go-to everyday product for over a year now. I use it for bronzer, contour and eyeshadow! It's a great neutral shade - not too cool or warm so it fits lots of skin tones.
great for light skinHoola is amazing for lighter skin tones, all bronzers make me look muddy but not this one! sunkissed all the way
GoodVery nice bronzer. Works well with a broad range of skin tones. This small pouch lasts very long so it’s well worth the investment. Won’t need to purchase very often. Definitely lives up to its hype.
A decade of "contouring"I am usually one who buys a different product every time I run out of something, even if I loved the one I just used but this little gem has been a staple in the makeup case for over 10 years! I have been using Hoola under my cheek bones and along my lids since I was a teenager (not that it would of looked good on a pale 15yr old in the early 00s). Thankfully the Kardashians became a thing and all of a sudden "How to Contour" was the number one on my youtube search bar and this product was never ever replaced. Bonus - it lasts FOREVER!
User friendlyI love this bronzer - it’s perfectly buildable and compliments a large array of skin tones. I use it as a contour and all over bronzer and people do not stop commenting on how tan I look (if only they knew!)
The formula is very light and highly pigmented so although the packaging is small, you’ll find it seems to never run out.
Holy GrailI always find myself coming back to this bronzer. It's the perfect shade and blends out so well.
BRONZE GODDESSGives you the perfect bronze look for any summer goddess look you are looking for.
Its perfect for many complections, any all skin types.
My go to bronzer for everyday wear to glam looks
My Fav BronzerHave been using the bronzer for more than 3 years!! Amazing amazing amazing.
I don't tend to use this as a all over face bronzer but it is absolutely great for contouring. I have pale skin and the colour still works for me. Just need to press into it lightly with a soft brush. The larger size does come with a contouring brush and it works fine but i prefer to use my own.
The colour stays on all day and does not look muddy. Would def repurchase once i finish but 3 years and still going strong.
Excellent quality bronzerBenefit Hoola bronzer is a great quality product that is finely milled and blends beautifully. This original shade can be too warm for fair skinned girls like myself. I wanted to love the shade as Hoola is constantly raved about, but the colour just doesn't work on my complexion. Lucky for me, the new Hoola lite is my perfect shade, so I'm thrilled that Benefit have released this new product. Both the original Benefit Hoola and the new Benefit Hoola Lite bronzers are amazing to use and apply really smoothly and give an airbrushed finish.
I'm 43 with oily to combination skin that is fair to medium.
FAVORITEMy favorite bronzer ever. Perfect for contouring and giving your face a healthy glow. Blends out really well for a natural look.
A Healthy GlowOne of the best bronzers I have used. Gives me a healthy natural glow without looking orange
Holy grailI have a fair complexion and this bronzer works perfectly for my skin tone. It isn't muddy at all and leaves me looking like i just came back from holiday! I would recommend this for almost all skin tones!
Go-to contour powderI love love love this product! It was bought for me as a gift when I first started wearing full-face makeup, as I wanted to contour. It lasted me approximately 2 years, and is a good neutral matte bronzer. I have light skin with a pink undertone, and this colour isn't too warm or neutral. It also blends really well with a duo-fibre brush.
Best bronzer!This is the most natural and best bronzer for my olive skin tone and I have been able to use it in both Winter and Summer. Great product!!!
Love this for contourGreat contouring bronzer. Make sure not to put it on straight over moisturiser though. Can get muddy and look bad. Otherwise looks so good over foundation with a full made up face.
