staying power


it is the best bronzer i ever used and it lasts all day no doubt

- Ulta User

last all day and the packaging is so cute

- Ulta User



doesn't look cakey

- Sephora User

i can make it look natural for my day makeup and i can go a little heavier at night without it looking cakey

- Ulta User


blends well

i love how well it blends into my skin

- Ulta User

it's highly pigmented, blend-able and gives you a glow and contour to the gods

- Ulta User



however on the skin it's smooth and beautiful

- Ulta User

indeed, it truly was something amazing, it just glided on my skin so smoothly and looked like part of my skin , yet still giving me that beautiful sun kiss look

- Beautyboutique User



this contours so nicely and the texture is so soft

- Sephora User

the texture is very smooth and soft and a little bit goes a long way

- Birchbox User


does not have fallout

the texture is soft, and dense yet powdery

- Sephora User

the only negative i have to say is that hoola is powdery, something i'm not really used to, but it's still a great tool in the arsenal for a beautiful face

- Sephora User



this powder is an incredibly sheer peach tone with a very subtle gold highlight

- Benefitcosmetics User

i am shade barcelona sheer glow nars when i'm tanned (for reference)

not impressed

I thought I would try this as an alternative to the hoola powder I use for quicker application and to stop the dried look the powder gives me. it goes on nice and feels really silky and blends easily or I would have dropped a star but it is nowhere near as dark in colour as hoola powder and applying more coats just looked too heavy on my skin, also I always seal my make up with glowsetter by glamglow which is great for oil free foundation if I use oil based I seal with model in a bottle followed by queen of hungary to stop dryness I tried sealing this with both and it just smudges and rubs right off at the softest touch. really disappointed as it is useless if it wont stay on and you can't see it unless you have very pale skin. on the plus side it didn't take much effort to remove it as it was mostly gone and wiped off completely with a tissue. not what I expect from the usually brilliant Benefit brand! « less

Sweet & Subtle

Since I am extremely fair, I am using this more as a blush than a highlighter, but can see how it works as both. It is a very soft, pale ballerina pink with subtle shimmer. It is not heavily pigmented, so it takes a couple of sweeps across my cheeks to give me a soft pink flush. I also use it around my temples, nose, and chin to create a nice glow. On the skin, this leaves just a whisper of baby pink with a slightly luminous finish. You can layer it for more color, but it is always going to be light. It can start leaning a little chalky with a heavy application, so be sure to blend. The formula is a finely-milled powder, but it does not fly everywhere with a swirl of the brush. It does have a flowery scent, but that does not transfer to your skin. I am very sensitive to fragrances and this does not bother me at all. I'm not the biggest fan of the cardboard box as it does not seem luxurious and is a little awkward to open. It is also kind of bulky and takes up more room than I'd like in my cosmetics case. But, you do get lots of product for the money. If you are fair and looking for just a hint of pink, this is a great blush and highlighter. For those with a darker complexion, this is probably a highlighter/brightener only. I am really enjoying this for a sweet and natural look. I love this paired with Dior Addict Urban lipstick which is a sheer, pale pink lipstick with soft shimmer. They look like they were made for each other. « less

The Hype is REAL

My favourite bronzer in the market. I love using this to contour my face and add some colour back into my compaction. It doesn’t have excessive fallout, blends into the skin easily, feels so soft, stays all day, and has perfect pigment. I love this packaging and especially appreciate that it has a mirror!

Everyone raves about this product so I finally gave it a go. I was a little confused by the compact size when it arrived but that didn’t matter once I tried it, I can see why there is so much hype. A little goes a long way, you can build on it and it doesn’t look chunky or interfere with my foundation underneath. The pigment blends beautifully. I use both with a quick bronzer for day to day and over full make up and it’s amazing every time.It also comes with a cute little brush which is also decent quality. Had a tiny bit off fall out but stays in the box and isn’t an issue. 10/10 and my new staple item.

As someone who is pale with dry skin, I feel the best investment is in the bronzer because you can get away with wearing it with concealer and bronzer and people will think you spent more time than you actually did. The best bronzer is hoola bronzer, it looks natural but gives you a noticeable glow.

I need some new bronzers in my life! What are your holy grails? I currently use Physician’s Formula and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil. Love them both but just looking to switch things up a bit. Both luxury and drugstore suggestions welcome 😊 #bronzer #holygrail

Does anyone know a good non-matte bronzer that is good for fair/cool skin? I just started getting into applying bronzer and need one that’s easy to blend. If anyone got any brush recommendations for bronzers too let me know!

What bronzer stays on your face all day? I have tried IT cosmetics and pho tan by bare minerals. Both come off Farley quickly. I wash my face and use primer under my base.

#Bronzer #Advice Bronzing is such an important step in my makeup routine, but I feel like it goes away after just a couple of hours. I currently use a primer, and setting spray to help but still get the same results. My current bronzer is physicians formula butter bronzer. Should I change bronzers or apply it differently?
