Review for: Natural Bronze, Hoola Lite more...
This is a great drugstore bronzer. The hype is definitely real. I would give this 5 stars but it honestly has a pretty heavy price tag in my opinion. The upside is that it goes on very smoothly—no patchiness— and you can really build up how bronzed you would like to apear. At first, I wasn’t 100% impressed but then I realized how much I loved how buildable it is. It doesn’t have such a high pigmentation that you ruin your look if you accidentally go in with a heavy hand. It goes on soft and light and then you work with the product from there. Also, most famously, it has tropical coconut type scent that is just great. If you’re not a fan of scented makeup products or have a particular skin sensitivity to scented products, then you may want to pass on this. However, the scent really doesn’t linger so if you can get through it, it’s definitely worth it. It has a nice little mirror in the compact so I do appreciate that. Last thing, the applicator is comes with, as with most drugstore products is absolutely useless so I would recommend tossing it and just using a fluffy brush. It’s a solid bronzer and definitely worth a try.

Review for: Natural Bronze, Hoola Lite more...
This bronzer is positively fantastic! As a Benefit aficionado and a very pale girl I had heard wonderful things about Hoola but never gotten around to trying it out. But I would never go back to another bronzer. This bronzer will look good on basically every skin tone, but mostly fair-medium (may be too pale for dark skin). It is completely and utterly matte, which I adore. Since it has zero shimmer and zero glitter unlike every other bronzer I have tried, it looks so natural. You can build it up for a darker tan or dust it on strategically for a light glowing tan (the way I prefer to wear it). Even the brush, which many people complain about, isn't even that bad. While it may not be the best size for bronzer application (an angled blush brush may be best) it isn't too rough on the skin and applies the bronzer pretty evenly. If a better brush is not available or convenient, the included brush should make an at least semi- suitable replacement. Although the included Hoola brush isn't super top quality, it isn't bad so that is why I left my rating at 5 stars instead of four.The packaging, while on the website seems sort of flimsy, is quite sturdy and shuts with a nice, almost magnetic feeling closure. The mirror on the back side of the lid, while slightly on the small side is nice when you are in a pinch and don't have one available. I would wholeheartedly recommend this product!

Review for: Natural Bronze more...
Not too many words I need to really share on this product. Because AWESOME can just sum it alll up !!! I love how matte and buildable this product is. I have an Olive skin tone but I could probably recommend it to tones below and above mine tbh !! Would recommend trying the travel sized first (which is what I did) and see if you like it. I still have my travel sized one and I still have product in it and for using it everyday and having it for about 2 months I would have to recommend to test it out that way ! In store swatching can be a bit confusing which is why it's always better to leave the store to see in natural lighting, actually buying the product you get to discover if it breaks your skin out or not. You could see if using it with a different brush would give you a different result that you will love. !!!!!

This was actually my first bronzer once I started getting into all the new makeup that has come out. I'm 44 and all these things did not exist when I started wearing makeup as a teenager. This was recommended to me by an employee at Sephora. I have very pale skin so I have to be a bit careful with bronzer colors. I do like that this brand has some of their products in smaller sizes because I have quite a big collection of makeup and I don't necessarily always want a full size. This product performs well and looks good. It's matte not shimmery, which is what I generally look for in a bronzer.

Review for: Hoola Lite more...
This bronzer is absolutely flawless perfection for fair skinned girls like me! It has the perfect tone to it. It doesn’t translate cool toned or too warm toned on the skin & it blends out like a complete dream! If you’re super fair skinned like me you know how difficult it can be to find a bronzer that works well for your skin. I also love that this bronzer is completely matte as well, because I often use a radiant blush in conjunction with my highlight and some times adding a radiant bronzer to the mix just adds a bit to much texture to the skin or highlights it so on days Especially when my skin is breaking out and I do not want to highlight any texture on my cheeks I’ll use this & it looks just beautiful!!

Review for: Natural Bronze more...
I’ve hit pan on the Hoola bronzer once before, and it remains one of my favourite bronzers because of the shade, how pigmented it is, and how easy it is to blend. It is buildable and that’s why it also makes for a great contour shade because it’s not too orange. I also love the brush that it comes with to contour and I wish Benefit sold this brush on its own! The brush for the mini Hoola was a bit harder to blend with because it’s smaller and harder to hold, but it’s mainly used to travel with anyways so it’s not a huge concern. I LOVE this product and will continue to purchase my own!!

I bought the small travel size Hoola bronzer because I was skeptical of the hype but too curious to hold back. It took one wear for my predisposed opinion to do a 180. Not only does this bronzer give me the perfect “everyday” bronzed look, I can also use it on more glamorous nights and build it up to full potential! I just hit pan a couple weeks ago on my travel size (eek! Isn’t hitting pan so satisfying?) and I will be repurchasing Hoola in it’s full size! I’m also curious to try Hoola Light as I am fair skinned and would most likely enjoy it too! Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer

Review for: Natural Bronze more...
This was my favorite bronzer/contour powder for over 10 years. I often used it as an eyeshadow crease shade for everyday use and repurchased it multiple times. It is the perfect color for my yellow/golden/tan Filipino skin. It is very easy to use, buildable, and blendable. It was suggested to me long ago as a beginner product by a makeup artist and I never felt the need to look for anything better. I only stopped purchasing it because their formula contains parabens. I also love how much product came in the box. It would take me such a long time to use it up. I have since switched to Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

Honestly this bronzer is way worth the investment, the packaging is super cute and it even comes with its own brush. It goes on well and a little goes a long way! It has lasted me a few months and I will definitely be buying this again. I love the way it sets and lasts long and it is super easy to blend! It's a lightweight formula so it doesn't weigh too heavy on my skin, which is great because heavy products cause my face to become oily faster. I would recommend this to any makeup guru in the market for an easy to use and dependable bronzer.

Would this be okay for pale skin? Does it look natural and is it blendable? How pigmented is it? Worth the money or no?

Is it worth buying? Is it a holy grail makeup item that everyone needs in their collection. I want to expand mine but I also doesn't want to spend A LOT of money to get things that aren't necessary.
