I am so not a sun goddess but beauty confession, I really like Benefit Hoola and Benefit Dallas. Shhh! Don’t tell ANYONE you heard that from me. And I even like Benefit Hoola more now that there’s a new Benefit Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush to apply it with.
Shortly you’ll be able to get your hands on the new Benefit Hoola Collection which not only includes the new Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush but also a new all over Hoola body bronzer as well as a liquid version of Hoola. So if you’re a Hoola kinda girl or guy you’ll be happy!
Currently, I’m in love with the brush.
So here’s the deal, I hate bronzer with a passion. It makes my dull skin even duller. It’s difficult work picking JUST the right bronzer as either they are too muddy or too orange or just too dark.
My Tips and Tricks for Bronzer Application post from a hundred or so years ago pretty much sums up how I like wearing bronzer. It’s all about the blush. I typically like applying a little cheek stain and sweeping on the very lightest, sheers layering of bronzer on top so it kinda gives that glow from within look. Or I like using a little bronzer first and a powder blush on top.
Now part of my problem with bronzers isn’t only the fact I don’t like the way they look on me but ALSO the fact I have such a heavy hand during application. That’s why the new Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush is perfect. Seriously, if you have a heavy hand this brush is for you. I don’t think it’s ideal for contouring work as it does have very long and floppier bristles that are super soft. It is, however, perfect for gently sweeping on a very sheer layer of bronzer. Considering Hoola is very dark and quite pigmented this brush is perfect for use with it as you can get a sheer, very natural layer of it onto your face without every over doing it.
Did I mention it’s kinda cute too?
This has a long gold bamboo handle and the bristles are black with turquoise tips for an ombre effect.
For those of who hate bronzers but do like a sheer glowing layer of color on our faces the Benefit Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush is the perfect tool. Get a sunny, natural glow without looking completely muddy or dull courtesy this brush!
