The Best Dupes for Benefit's Hoola Matte Bronzer

With over 8,000 reviews, Benefit's Hoola Matte Bronzer is an Influenster favorite for daily bronzing and contouring. It can be difficult to find a matte, truly shimmer-free bronzer, let alone one that actually suits your skin tone. Benefit worked some magic with this one, because Hoola is a universally flattering bronzer with absolutely no glitter.

If a $30 bronzer is out of your budget, take a look at these drugstore Hoola dupes that are sure to please your wallet and cheeks!

Rimmel Natural Bronzer ($4.29, Target

It's hard to find a drugstore bronzer that's easy to blend, completely matte, and doesn't give off an unnaturally orange tinge. Influensters say they've found their match with Rimmel's Natural Bronzer. 

I have used this product for a long long time now! It never fails me. During the colder months I use it only for contouring. During the summer, I use it all over and then go over it again for contouring. It goes on easy and blends easy. Blending was a big thing for me. I had bronzers in the past that was so hard to blend. I will continue to use this product until it is discontinued.

NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium ($6.29, Amazon)

NYX's Matte Bronzer in Medium is a highly-pigmented, yet super blendable option that will get you that healthy, sun-kissed glow. Plus, if this shade doesn't work for you, there are five variations to better match your skin tone.

I decided to try out this bronzer after moving away from Hoola, which has been my go-to bronzer since High School. I compared all of the shades and the NYX ones are a little more orangey than Hoola so I decided to go with Medium. I have to say, on my face, it doesn't look too orangey and I like the color that it gives me. The packaging is also really nice and doesn't feel like it's going to break or crack if I carry it around in my makeup bag. I wish they would come out with new colors that are a little less orangey.

TheBalm Bahama Mama Matte Bronzer ($19.00, Amazon)

Although this bronzer is on the higher end of the price spectrum, you'll still be pocketing some extra cash while achieving that Hoola glow. Plus, this product doubles as a brow powder and triples as a matte eyeshadow!

Having a porcelain skin color and a difficult undertone, it´s hard for me to find a bronzer that goes along with my skin color.This bronzer is so pigmented and blendable, which makes it easy to build up to the perfect intensity, and the best part is that it´s not orange, which makes it perfect to contour with too. I absolutely love this bronzer, and my hoola bronzer from Benefit can´t even compare.
