Benefit Hoola Bronzer & Lip Gloss #HowDoYouHoola


This little bronzer quickly became one of my favourite products and the fact that it has my name on it made it even more special. I've tried a mini Hoola bronzer in the past, but for some reason I didn't repurchase it. I know, I am such a fool :) haha. Benefit Hoola Bronzer is absolutely stunning and I couldn't be more excited about having it back in my life. I also got a chance to try the Hoola lip gloss and I think it's fantastic! I love the formula of Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses - they feel incredible on the lips. After putting both products to the test and I can finally  share my #HowDoYouHoola selfie, complete with a Hawaiian necklace :)

There is nothing worse that bronzers that make me look very orange, but this beaut isn't one of them. Hoola looks very natural on most complexions and even some fair-skinned ladies love it. You simply dust the powder over your complexion with the little brush, focusing on areas you want to bronze up. I also use it for everyday contouring. The texture of the powder is very soft and easy to blend and I love the way the colour works with my skin tone. Perfect!

PS. I am wearing a peachy blush on my cheeks on all the photos as well. I used the bronzer under my cheekbones, on my forehead, nose, chin and jaw line.

If you are looking for a silky, non-sticky gloss with a gorgeous shine, Hoola is the one! It is a gorgeous light bronze shade with a high shine finish and it feels very moisturising. It has a little bit of micro shimmer, but the particles aren't visible unless you look very, very closely. They just create a gorgeous 'water effect' on the lips and make them look full and juicy :)


Have you tried Hoola? If so, make sure to take your #HowDoYouHoola selfie and share it on Twitter and Instagram, using the hashgtag.

    1. Yes, Benefit sent them out to selected bloggers with their names on the packaging. Such a thoughtful idea. x
