Benefit has finally caught up with the times, and are now including an additional two darker shades of their bestselling Hoola bronzer. They are called Hoola Caramel and Hoola Toasted. All Hoola Bronzers are available in two different sizes - full size 8g at £26 or half size 4g at £13.
If you have very pale to fair skin, but want a little warmth without looking orange, then Hoola Light is the bronzer for you. It's formulated to create a gentle tone for a slight contour effect, without any harshness.
Hoola Matte Bronzer
The Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer is a UK favourite, because it's not sparkly, but doesn't create that muddy look either. It comes in a square box with a built in mirror and a flat brush that's ideal for applying the product to the face, neck and shoulders.
It's dark enough for most light to medium skin tones, and is great for adding some tan tones to lacklustre skins.
Hoola Caramel is a new addition to the Benefit bronzer range. It has been formulated to accommodate medium to tanned skin tones and is ideal for adding a bit of summer to the complexion.
If you do have lighter skin, and like a strong make-up look, then you can do some serious contouring with this.
Dark skin tones are no longer left out of Benefit's bronzer range, with the new Hoola Toasted. It's a seriously deep bronzing powder that won't add that artificial glittery look, and isn't ashy.
Again, lighter skin tones may wish to use this for fashion make-up or for a darker tanned complexion.
Which Benefit Hoola is for me?
Hoola Light is the most subtle bronzer in the Benefit range, so is aimed at very light skins. It can appear ashy when used on dark skin. Having said that, you can blend it to create depth to the face.
Hoola (original) is commonly used by most skin tones, but may require layering if you are darker. Fair skins may find it rather dark for them, so a light application is advised if you are super pale.
Hoola Caramel is aimed at those with medium to darker tones of the skin. There's nothing to stop those with lighter or darker skins from using it but note that it may appear muddy on those pale toned skins.
Hoola Toasted is the darkest concealer that Benefit does. It's deep pigment means that it's for dark toned skins. If you are pale skinned then this will look dark, so would only be suited for high-fashion looks rather than natural. Medium to tan skin tones may favour this for a deeper bronzed look.
