My first dabbing into contouring was with the Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer, i remember watching YouTube videos and at the time, it was all the rage to use Hoola to contour your features. It was rightfully hyped: the neutral tones are flattering on everyone, its matte and smells gorgeous. This on top of a super cute packaging and a brush that i actually use to contour my cheeks.
Cue several years later and the range has expanded with Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer – an instant, soft matte liquid bronzer for the face, a Hoola Bronzing and Contouring Brush that it will forever stay on display (its that pretty!) and a ‘believable’ self tan Hoola Zero Tanlines.
If i would be asked to choose one favorite product from the bunch, it would be Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer. Its such a multipurpose product:
a) you can use it all over the face as a primer – it will give you a lovely glow to your face.
b) mixed up with your foundation to darken it up when you are self tanning and your face looks paler.
c) added on top of your base for a subtle contour.
Another addition is the new Dandelion Shy Beam – Benefit’s first matte highlighter. Matte highlighter you ask, its a contradiction in itself isnt it? There just isnt a better way to describe it: a soft nude pink, almost matte highlighter. Its the perfect product for when you want a subtle strobe, that lit from within effect. Again, you can mix it up with a touch of foundation to lighten up your base or on top, for a soft sheen. I find it great if you have oily skin with visible pores, its the perfect highlight that wont accentuate imperfections or make you look like a disco ball. Although, disco ball is my favorite look of all times :).
Have you tried the new Benefit Hoola collection? Its so pretty i just cant bring myself to chuck the outer packaging :).
