Benefit Hoola Lite Matte Bronzing Powder A New Shade For Lighter Skin Tones

Love Benefit Hoola but might it be a little too dark for you? Guilty here! I can’t use! It’s too dark and muddy for my skin tone! Benefit Hoola Lite Matte Bronzing Powder is a new lighter, low calorie version of the original that’s perfect for lighter complexions look for a little sheer warmth.

This new lighter shade adds warmth but the finely milled powder also acts as an all over setting powder as well. The soft, lighter matte bronze shade is a light creamy tan that adds warmth to fair and lighter skin tones without being too orange or to bronze.

Hoola is actually a nice shade but for me it’s always been a tad too dark and gave my complexion a muddy finish. I’m quite curious about Hoola Lite! Perhaps that might be a better solution! Although it does look quite sheer. We shall see. I’m curious about this shade.

What about you?

Benefit Hoola Lite Matte Bronzing Powder is available now at Ulta.com and should be launching soon at Sephora.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I was wondering why Hoola original was on sale at Ulta. Now I know why! I can’t wait for Galifornia.

    I ordered it and used my 20 percent coupon. It looks pretty. I need some color in my face

    I cannot wait for Galifornia either. Muse is this blush have a gold overspray? Thanks.

    I can’t wait to get this. I was once a fan of the original, when I used to tan indoors…GASP. Now, that I am older and I am pale, this will be perfect. I am counting the days till I get my greedy little paws on this.

        I sure hope so. I need a light bronzer. Everything I see is so very dark for my skin. I look like a clown. Sheer is better than clownish. Lol.

    I love your describing this as a low calorie bronzer! I may give this a go. I love Hoola, but sometimes in the winter I don’t like using a bronzer…this might be a good one to use while waiting for Spring and Summer.

      I was hoping it would add warmth but also act as the finishing powder as described by Benefit 😀
