Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer Review

I've been a Benefit Hoola lover for years. It's my go-to bronzer for contouring or adding a bit of colour to my face, but there is no denying that it is quite a dark matte bronzer if you've got fair skin like mine. The original Hoola gives me a more realistic sun kissed glow in the summer time but in the middle of winter when my skin is at its lightest it can look a little harsh. Thankfully Benefit have thought about the pale girl struggles and released Hoola Lite Bronzer.

The lite version is a matte bronzer too which is perfect for a natural glow. My Hoola Bronzer hasn't been completely made redundant, I save it for nights out when I want something a bit bolder but Hoola Lite has become a firm favourite for my everyday makeup look. It warms my complexion and looks a lot healthier, it's such a good shade. It can really finish off a makeup look when it's all looking a little flat. I contour across my cheekbones, forehead and jawline and find it stays put all day and isn't at all drying on my dehydrated skin. 

Hoola Lite comes in the same packaging as the best-selling original with a little natural bristle brush but just a lighter colour lid to reflect the bronzer inside. A controversial opinion perhaps, but I really like the brush. It's a good size and handy being tucked inside the product so I use it every single time. If you're not 100% keen on the little brush Benefit have brought out a bronzing and contouring brush which looks quite good. Hoola Lite is the same size at 8g which lasts for months and months.

Benefit Hoola Lite is a big must for any fair skinned girls, it's not at all muddy or orange, it's the perfect bronzer. Pigmented but natural looking it's worth spending the money.

  1. I used to have Hoola but I never reached for it because I'm so pale that it was a bit dark for me to wear every day, so this sounds perfect! I think I'm going to add this to my beauty wish list :)
