Holy grail bronzer


My absolute favourite bronzer. The shade is perfect for my light to medium skin tone. Blends SO well and can also be used as a bit of eyeshadow. I've had this for a little over two years and I'm not even halfway done.

Not for me


I was really excited to use this product.
SO MANY beauty youtubers use this and love it!
I’ve used it a few times now, thinking everytime I’ll try a different way of applying but it always seems to look quite ‘dirty’ and throughout the day it gets worse.
I really wanted to love this product but it’s just not for me
  1. Holy grail bronzer


    My absolute favourite bronzer. The shade is perfect for my light to medium skin tone. Blends SO well and can also be used as a bit of eyeshadow. I've had this for a little over two years and I'm not even halfway done.
  2. Lives up to the hype


    You can see why this bronzer is a celebrity favourite.

    It is absolutely the most natural bronzer on the market. No sheen, no orange, just a gorgeous matte bronzed finish which results in you looking like you’ve been on a holiday.

    I would be lost without it!
  3. The Ultimate Bronzer


    This bronzer is the real deal. It has the nicest color, and glides on so smoothly. It is incredibly natural-looking, and I am definitely going to keep re-purchasing this! It is truly worth the price.
  4. classic bronzer


    this shade works well for most skin tone as a bronzer as well as a contour colour. I would suggest choose the toasted version if you like a sun kissed look or having a yellow/medium skin tone. I find this is very subtle which is what I like and it can also build up if preferred.
  5. Good staying power


    verified purchaser
    I decided to try this bronzer because of its matte finish. Previous to this I was using Nars and this bronzer works well in comparison, though I can't say it's better, I do get a similar result. It took a few tries
    for me to master the right amount and the correct application brush helps (I use RT's light application bronzer brush). As stated, it has a matte finish, is easily buildable, has ...

  6. Favourite bronzer


    This is hands down my favourite bronzer, it's perfect for my skin tone and is VERY natural looking. It is super easy to blend and takes such a long time to finish.
  7. Love


    verified purchaser
    I just love benefit cosmetics! This bronzer is everything you want in a matte bronzer. Buildable and easy to blend. I use this as contour and bronzer. Would repurchase
  8. Best bronzer I’ve ever had


    This is such a natural and beautiful bronzer! It’s also super decently priced for how long it lasts - highly recommend!
  9. best


    love this. purchased mine a while ago and it lasts forever!!
    perfect colour if you're lighter or medium tone. it gives a nice sunkissed look. i use this to contour and it makes you look glowy.
    I have purchased so many bronzers before and i keep going back to this. lasts on the skin (im oily) doesnt break me out and doesnt become blotchy even after HOURS of wear.
  10. smooth bronzer


    This bronzer looks really nice and smooth on the skin, I find it never looks muddy which can be a problem on my fair skin. My only dislike is the packaging which is quite bulky. Would prefer a thin, flat compact as I travel often. And the brush that comes with it is pretty useless, bit of a waste.
  11. Natural sunkissed glow


    Best colour for even the palest skin. The bronzer gives a natural sunkissed glow that is easily build able
    and blends well.
  12. Wow


    I'm in love with the Hoola bronzer it makes me look tan which I absolutely LOVE!
  13. Best Bronzer!


    Best bronzer colour! natural looking colour and can be built up on the skin if needed
  14. Make your face look like a model


    This is such a perfect primer, which can be adapted for everyday and going out.
  15. Cult product for a reason


    This is a cult product for a reason, always go back to it and never disappointed! Highly recommend!
  16. Best bronzer!


    I loveee this bronzer! I've had it for a couple years now and it's perfect! I have tan skin and it is the perfect shade, it's really easy to apply as well. The only thing is I much prefer using my own brush rather than the one they provide, but the actual bronzer is great!
  17. Natural colour, portable, brush included

    I buy too much makeup

    Nice natural colour. Brush works well given its size - it's softer than expected and the shape allows for some good contouring. Very portable as well with the brush fitting in the box. I kept the little plastic brush container in the box to stop it getting messy. Would be good for travel.
  18. Good bronzer


    I really like this bronzer.
    It comes in easy to handle packaging and with its own brush that stores neatly inside the box. The quality of the brush is good, never shedding any bristles.
    It has a lovely texture which glides on easily and blends in well over the top of my finishing powder. The colour stays all day and has slight undertones of pink with some golden shimmer, which works w...

  19. Love this


    This is my absolute favourite bronzer ever! I absolutely love it to death- the colour is perfect. Definitely a go to for me
  20. Versatile


    This bronzer is a classic for a reason. Its undertone makes it flattering to a large shade range. Even those with quite fair skin can wear this with a lighter hand.
  21. Not for me


    I was really excited to use this product.
    SO MANY beauty youtubers use this and love it!
    I’ve used it a few times now, thinking everytime I’ll try a different way of applying but it always seems to look quite ‘dirty’ and throughout the day it gets worse.
    I really wanted to love this product but it’s just not for me
  22. cult favourite


    I've repurchased this three times - I always come back to it. You get a good amount of product and it blends really nicely - for fair tones i'd say this might be a bit much, but for me it's a favourite. I have to say though, the packaging burns me - time for an update, benefit. I mean, it's basically cardboard? the mirror is a waste of time too.
  23. Lasts so long just buy it


    If the price of this bothers you, don’t let it. You will have this for years! And it really is such a good bronzer. Can contour with it can bronze the complexion as well. I will repurchase and won’t feel guilty about the price
  24. Best bronzer


    This is a classic - its not too great and not too orange. Can be used as a bronzer or a contour shade!

    Blends very well.

    This product is a must have for a makeup collector or one building up their base collection
  25. No other bronzer comes close to this beautiful bronzer!


    Benefit does the best and greastest bronzers EVER! That's all I have to say.
  26. I love this bronzer!


    This bronzer is so perfect for my olive skin. It looks so natural, yet adds a much needed oomph. When I'm in a hurry with no time for makeup, I'll just pop this on with some mascara - so great for a natural but elevated look.
  27. Light bronzer


    Natural shade of bronzer, maybe a bit light/pinky for some skin tones but works for me! Only thing is the bulkiness of the packaging though
  28. Perfect first bronzer


    At 26 years old this is actually the first bronzer I've owned and I'm in love with it. The colour is perfect for me (olive skin) and it's easy enough to use for a first time bronzer user. I love that the colour is matte rather than shimmery
  29. nice


    It's perfect. long-lasting and looks natural on the skin. It's easy to use and cute packaging too. The brush is great as well.
  30. Bronzer Goals


    This is a lovely colour & blends easily either over foundation or on its own to give a glow. The only down side is the box design so you can't swipe a fluffy brush through it easily. Would still buy again
  31. no wonder people love it


    this was recommended to me by so many people, and its so worth it! gives me an amazing glow every day
  32. natural, matte bronzer


    My favourite bronzer is NARS Laguna, but they had no stock, and so I decided to give this a whirl, as I love other Benefit make up. I really like the warm, matte (no sparkle) colour and it stays put all day. It blends well , but I don't like the box as it's hard to sweep your brush around and distribute the bronzer evenly - it tends to clump in one spot on the brush. But as it blends well this is ...

  33. Nice Bronzer


    Goes on easy and stays put all day. Gives a nice bronze color without looking harsh. Love it! I would definitely repurchase.
  34. Sun Kissed Bronzed


    Such a beautiful bronzer. Its definitely on the warmer side but not too pigmented which is good for building just the right amount of colour depending on the look your going for.
  35. Lasts forever!


    I have had this bronzer for probably too long- it lasts forever! A great natural shade that blends nicely. I also like to use it as eyeshadow and blush. Not too pigmented but can easily be built up.
  36. Overhyped


    I have quite pink undertones and fairish skin and this just doesn't work for me. It's such a cult classic but always looks green/orange or muddy on my skin and is so expensive that it's just not worth it. The texture and formula is great and blendable though so if the colour works for you I would recommend
  37. Good for backup in your bag


    This is a lovely warm tone and once blended out sits nicely. I use it as a hit of colour when i am not wearing any foundation and its great small size to take anywhere for a little touch up
  38. It's great


    This product size is so convenient for travelling and the product is so good. My go to bronzer
  39. all time fave


    can't go wrong with this, the packaging is so cute and it gives the perfect sun tan look no matter what skin colour you have! It's compact and comes with a handy brush
  40. Must have!


    This is one of my OG favourite bronzers, the one thing that is a little annoying is the awkward packaging, i guess it is not a problem if your brush is small enough
  41. Favourite


    I have always used this bronzer, works wonders and I love it!
  42. Great!


    Such a soft powder and lasts all day! Perfect matte bronzer.
  43. A household staple!


    ou really can't go wrong with this bronzer - definitely one of Benefit's best, classic products. It's got a lovely formula that doesn't look muddy and patchy, and the colour really fits many different skin tones.
  44. BEAUTiful formula


    This formula is beautiful!The shade unfortunately for my pale skin tone does not work too well, but I love it for times when I am more tan.
  45. Great


    This bronzer sculpts my face and the colour is also great
  46. Cute and convienent


    Super travel friendly and a great coloured bronzer. Perfect for light and full coverage make up looks.
  47. Beautiful


    Great natural looking coloured bronzer! small and compact great for travelling!
  48. love this bronser


    Love this bronzer, it is a great colour for me and it blends in well. Also small enough for travelling.
  49. amazing bronzer!


    i love this bronzer. it can also be used for contouring as it is the perfect shade, not too muddy and not too orange.
  50. Best bronzer


    I have been using this bronzer for years now! It matches my skin tone so perfectly it doesn’t look cakey or muddy and blends really easily. Perfect for beginners in my opinion!
  51. Great


    I build this up easily and it gives my face a nice dimension
  52. Perfect bronzer!


    I have been using this product for over 10 yrs - gives the perfect contour or bronze glow and the brush is so convenient and compact within the packaging. I will always repurchase this and such a great price point too.
  53. Fantastic


    This is the best, perfect sized bronzer. The brush is great for defining the cheekbones and the colour is beautiful, not too harsh
  54. Perfect for all skin tones


    I have fair to light skin and this is perfect on my skin and gives a healthy, bronze glow. Highly recommend! So easy to blend too!
  55. Best colour and formula


    I love everything about this bronzer!
    The colour is perfect and natural! Each time you buy you get a free brush which lasts time and time again!
    The formula stays all day and it also looks amazing as eyeshadow
    Hoola is my #1 bronzer
  56. Bit muddy but good for travel


    I have used the Marc Jacobs bronzer for years and had never gotten the type of muddy look that this one gives me. That being said it is a great size and I pack this with my everywhere. My advice is dust off the excess off your brush and use a light hand (you can always build up). Also, I find a round brush is better for this product than the one that it comes with.
  57. THE BEST


    This is my fav Benefit product i have been using for years and i will never ever stop!!!! It really deserves 10 stars
  58. Not bad ☀️


    Not my favorite bronzer, but not my least favorite!
    Pros: lasts forever (even though it is a tad expensive, you get quite a lot out of it), reeeeeallly pigmented, nice colour
    Cons: a little muddy, hard to blend, quite dark (may be an issue if you have fair skin).
  59. Perfect!


    Great color, can build up or a have a light subtle bronze up! Perfect for travel, great case drop proof!
  60. beautiful


    Benefit Hula Bronzer is the ultimate beauty product to create a bronzey, tan and summer look. The bronzer comes with a small brush and is easy to apply to the forehead, cheekbone and jaw area. The product is highly pigmented and has a glow which creates a tan look.
  61. Everyone needs this


    This is a staple bronzer for light to medium skin tones. It is so easy to use and not patchy, perfect bronzed shade. If you haven't tried it, what are you waiting for?
  62. Natural (when used with fake tan)


    I am VERY pale so I can only use this when I have a fake tan, but it is so natural (when with fake tan how about that) and doesn't have the shine that too many bronzers have
  63. Muddy on fair skin


    I've never been able to get this to work on my fair skin. It looks really muddy and not natural at all. This powder would be best suited for medium skin tones, and even then, should be used with a light hand.
  64. One of my fav


    One of my fav matte bronzers. Helps create an amazing sunkissed look and some basic eye makeup. Stays on all day.


    I have been using this bronzer for years and its simply the best. Its so creamy and blends beautifully and the colour is a perfect, natural bronze
  66. The perfect bronzer


    I absolutely love this!! I thought it was probably overrated because of all the hype but works really well and blurs super smoothly, even though I have very fair skin. :))
  67. Love this


    Beautiful payoff, natural looking and easy to use. Highly reccomend!
  68. Very good bronzer


    Very good product, you can add a little for a slight bronzed effect or apply layers for a deeper tan. Sits very well on my skin and doesnt irritate which is essential for me.
  69. Best bronzer ever!


    I just repurchased this after using a Chanel bronzer. This really puts every other bronzer to shame. A little goes a long way and it really defines the cheekbones and lasts long. This is a favourite for me!
  70. Natural looking bronzer

    Jen B

    I really like this bronzer because it's not too heavy. Other bronzers I have used ended up looking dark & streaky but this one gives a nice natural appearance. I just wish the box was rectangular rather than square, I find it hard to sweep my bronzing brush in a square box!
  71. Was expecting more


    I love the colour, it's a perfect balance of warm and cool tones, but the texture is patchy on me unless I apply copious amounts of powder beforehand. The small square packaging also is tricky to pair with brushes
  72. hoola


    benefit hoola is one of my absolute favourites - so versatile (can be used as bronzer, contour, or eyeshadow transition shade). the shade is so flattering and doesn't look too orangey
  73. Best Powder Contour


    I use this as a contour rather than a bronzer and its my absolute favourite. It blends like butter into the skin. The colour is not orange but not too muddy - its the perfect contour shade. A bonus is the little brush it comes with; its perfect for carving out cheek bones.
    PLUS it literally lasts forever!
  74. holy grail


    This is my holy grail bronzer! My absolute go to for both a natural and full face of makeup! If i'm wanting a real natural look, i will only use some concealer, powder and then top it off with a small amount of bronzer to give me a nice glow! If I want a full face, i'll do it a bit more full on and it honestly makes me go from a 0 to 100 and makes my makeup look soooo good!
  75. Best bronzer on the market


    I purchased this product because I saw Kylie Jenner use it in a YouTube tutorial and I remember her saying it was her favouite bronzer. This product absolutely lives up to the hype. I have tried so many drug store bronzers and they all leave your face looking dirty. This matte bronzer gives you a beautiful, healthy, natural glow without looking dirty, fake or over the top. It is the perfect produc...

  76. Cult favourite


    Favourite contour product! The brush makes it so easy to apply
  77. Cannot fault


    The best bronzer on the market, I'm about to buy this for the 5th time. Absolutely love the colour and it looks good as a natural glow or you can really glam it up
  78. Bronzed


    Love that a little goes a long way. The product is easy to build and blend out. Pigment is really complimentary of my fair/olive skin tone
  79. Contour Queen


    I enjoy this as a contour shade! I then like putting a shimmery bronzer on top for a glow.
    Fantastic for those who enjoy a matte look!
  80. Natural glow


    Easy to layer for a light bronze or a deeper colour. Very natural looking without beng too heavy.
  81. Buildable product - can use from winter to summer


    Great bronzer! The brush that comes with it is super cute. I change colours from winter to summer, this bronzer suits me throughout the seasons as the colour is buildable. It looks natural if you want it to or you can create definition.


    The best! I always buy other bronzers trying to save money but always end up repurchasing this! Nothing compares! Worth the price tag! So pigmented and applies deliciously
  83. Good Colour for Fair and Tanned Skin


    I have fair skin but tan every week using a medium fake tan, I find that this bronzer suits my skin when it's natural and tanned. It's easy to blend and lets you build the colour to suit your skin tone.
  84. Matte bronzer.


    Gives a natural sun-kissed finish on your skin. I have been using it for quite a time now. The only drawback was the brush.
  85. Sunkissed


    Great colour, adds dimension to face. Gives a sunkissed look if applied to cheeks. Really great bronzer, comes with a brush too.
  86. only works for yellow undertones


    I bought this and i can see why people like it the product is nice quality however on fair skin it looks awful, not my tone at all.
  87. Good alrounder

    Hoola bronzer

    This is a really good alround shade for a bronzer. It's versatile enough to contour and bronze with it as it's not shimmery like many others. It's a good bronzer to have in your collection
  88. Bronzing babe


    Been using this bronzer for years, the most amazing and easy go-to bronzer with a lovely warm shade which isn't orange and gives a natural sun-kissed glow. love.
  89. Natural matte bronzer


    A really great natural matte bronzer. I use it as my everyday bronzer and can build it up for a more intense bronze when I am tan. Not muddy at all and not overly red either.
  90. Perfect sun-kissed bronzer


    This is my all-time favourite bronzer and the only one I buy these days! It strikes the perfect balance between cool and warm tones and unlike many other bronzers doesn’t “stick” to liquid foundation or concealer on the skin. I use it daily for contouring or just lighting warming up my cheekbones. I’ve been using it exclusively for three years and will probably be using it for many more!
  91. Beautiful color


    Most natural bronzer I have used, pretty much goof proof since the color isn't too dark. Not too orange or red and LOVE that it's matte.
  92. WOW its amazing


    this makes me look like i just came back from a beach holiday. I'm pretty fair because I try to stay out of the sun as much as possible and wear spf50 everyday, and this make me look so glowy and bronzed but in a totally natural way.
  93. Hoola!


    LOVE this bronzer. It is the perfect bronzer to wear during the way, has a natural finish and doesn't come across too orange. You can build up the intensity from day to night. I initially thought it was TINY when I bought it, as previously only had MAC bronzer, but I've had this for over a year now and am only just seeing the bottom of the container. 10/10 will be buying again.
  94. Pigmented


    It is highly pigmented and only a little is needed. Easy to blend and doesn't fade.
  95. Bronze Goddess


    Absolutely love this bronzer, such a beautiful tone, and fits well with all skin tones.
  96. Not bad...


    This iconic bronzer is quite nice, the colour is good and it is well pigmented. Definitely something i reach for to bronze with, not contour with, as it is a warmer tone on my pale skin. There are bronzers i love more but that's not to say this isn't a nice product.
  97. Perfect bronzer


    Adore this bronzer, suits well on all skin shades. Gives a buildable bronze. Only downside is it’s quite small for the price
  98. The perfect, take-anywhere bronzing buddy!


    I am an avid self tan user, but never tan my face- so this Hoola Bronzer is my go-to for boosting my face bronze with minimal fuss. I love the packaging, it is perfect for a night out or to pop in your bag day to day as the brush fits perfectly inside the practical, small-but-mighty- sized box! I find a little goes a long way, it gives a slightly matte finish, and can give the appearing of extra c...

  99. Great


    One of my fave bronzers, I find that I reach for this a lot - if not everyday. Only down fall is that it is a little pricy for something so small.
