This is a joke. Like I really believe that the people at BEnefit are laughing their ass off!! The actual color is a beautiful brown based tan shade. BUT if your medium or dark complected,.. forget it. Not to mention the ridiculous box. IT taunts you to actually get your brush in there!! And in the event that you decide to use the brush that's provided you're going to get a streaky, blotchy mess!!! I actually took a side by side comparison and AVON's BRonze Glow bronzer is almost EXACTLY the same color, with a very, very small amount of shimmer, more product and a 4TH of the price. Save your money!!! Cause I promise you I will!!
Great for almost any skin tone and looks natural since it's a matte shade.
I love this bronzer since it doesn't have shimmer and looks very natural on me. I'm kinda fair, but I use sunless tanner all year round, just for a glow, so I haven't had this turn "dirty" on me. Packaging could use some improvement, but it's ok. The brush bites the big one, but I haven't had a big powder brush for a while, so when I use the brush that comes with this, I actually apply with a VERY light hand on cheeks, nose and forehead and I then kinda rub it in lightly on my face with my hands!! Well, it all turns out pretty to me, and I have repurchased a few times and probably will continue!
Whats up with this? I should have known better when it blotched on my arm at sephora, but I have been searching for that shade forever. If anybody knows how to make it spread evenly, or another bronze that is that natural looking, let us know!
UPDATE! I figured out why it looks muddy/dirty, I think it's catching more oily spots on the face, anyway, I found that if you put a very little amount on at a time (knock brush a few times), and use a light circular motion it works better.
The package is the best! Such a cute little tiki box, it's a step I never skip.
A little hoola makes me look more awake and more alive without looking too made up - just a little sun-kissed . The other ladies are right - the brush sucks. But dip into it with a nice big fluffy brush of your own and you're half way to the Hawaiian Islands.
I'm a bit torn over this. I swapped mine away and now I find myself wanting it back. It's a very nice bronzer as long as you use a big blush brush. If you use the one that comes with it, it's streaky and you look dirty. When applied with a better brush it actually looks quite nice:)
I loved it. It was just the right color for my skin tone. But the brush that came with it is horrible. I use a normal sized brush blush.
i really like this bronzer mainly because its the only one i can find that has no shimmer/glitter in.why the hell dont more makeup companies just make a matte bronzer!they always have to add a *bit* of shimmer of something else to make it fancy.
but anyway onto this bronzer,yes it does look natural.but am i the only one which uses and actually likes the brush i find the bristles to be nice and fine compared to most fluffy brushes.yes the squared shape brush may give you an odd streak or two but i apply it from the edges of my face to void this and its works perfectly.from reading the reviews on here i ended up paying and extra £10 for a crap fluffly brush which i dont use!
i gave it a four because of the price and the packaging,yes its very cute as everyone has said but i just wished it stayed on,they should have made some ridges on the side to make the lid stay on.its so annoying when i pick it up i end up gripping on tight so it doesn't fall.i do love the way how the little brush fits into the box perfectly.
i would buy this again
I absolutely LOVE this product! I am medium-skinned, but when I'm up early getting ready for work, I'm pretty pale. After I apply concealer and powder, I get the Hoola and brush highlights on my forehead, cheeks, nose, eyelids, chin...wherever! Instantly, it gives my face a warm glow without looking fake-tanned, or like I had some heinous blush mishap. It is a little pricey, but on the plus side, I think the one box will last me forever! This one's a winner for the hit-and-miss BeneFit line.
I know some of you out there dont really like this product... but i have practically nothing bad to say about it. i have olive skin and find that this product gives me a great glow - when applied to my whole face or just swiped over my cheeks. i think maybe the brush supplied isnt the best for applying this, i started to use a larger brush and any problems i ever had with streakiness were eliminated completely. a number of people have mentioned that this product is hard to budge once its on your face - i think this is a good thing! it means i dont have to worry about re-applying, and one quick brush over in the morning is enough to keep me glowing the whole day. this takes some practise, but once you've got it, i highly reccomend it!
