Rated 5 out of 5 by Tezabella Box of sunshine
This is a perfect matt bronzer, I can see why it's a market leader as it delivers and lasts all day! It gives good colour to the skin and is great for contouring! A little box of sunshine if I do say so myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GoodieGal89 Disappointed
I will start by saying that I have very pale skin and, because of this, I have been on a search for the perfect matte bronzer to add some colour and depth to my skin. I was so excited to try Hoola as I know that for many it is a staple item, and an icon of Benefit. Yet, for some reason, I am disappointed. Even though it is advertised as having no orange undertones and being suitable for all skin tones, I just looks orange when applied to my skin. Although I desperately wanted to love this product, I am afraid it will be returned as it just won't compliment my skin tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ginger37 Excellent bronzer
Always loved my Benetint for lip colour that stays and stays and stays......but tended to think that the other products were for the young.
I've been looking for a good (solid) bronzer for a while - heard the hype about this - decided to take the plunge.
This is terrific!! No shine, No sparkle and fantastic for contouring too....

Rated 4 out of 5 by 101Spaniels HOOLA - FAB - BOX RUBBISH!
I must be the only person in the country that does not possess one piece of Benefit make-up! It seems to be at the pinnacle of its popularity! Time to remedy this, I thought, and ordered their iconic Hoola powder really just because my curiosity was at hyper-level!! I wondered what all the fuss was about, having tried many other bronzing products before, but without finding one that was in any way marvellous. Well, my search is over. I now see exactly why this product is so iconic and in such great demand. It quite simply DELIVERS! What a fabulous bronzer. It is quiet, unassuming, no glitter, sparkle or other such rubbish, just pure pigment that you apply as lightly or as heavily as you wish. You are in charge, not the bronzer! Apply it in a figure of 3 to both sides of the face, then nose, and repeat until your desired colour is reached. It is never garish, just softly, softly flattering. I absolutely love it. It can be used on its own, although I think you should always use a primer if solely using a powder, as this helps to make the powder less drying on the skin. Most powders, including this one, do have talc as an ingredient, unfortunately. At the moment, I am using it on top of the fabulous Doll 10 Hydragel foundation in medium. Then a bit more Hoola on both cheeks and also contour with it. Its little brush makes contouring a dawdle! I then like to add just a touch of deep pink blusher to lift the sunkissed look. The finished effect is just perfect. You can probably tell how pleased I am! You can even brush it over the eye lids and it looks great. No need for a separate eyeshadow if you're in a hurry. Unfortunately I have had to drop one star - not for the product in any way - but I HATE the gimmicky box with its silly little mirror which is far too tiny to be of any use at all. When I'm doing a full face bronze, I find the little brush just a touch too small, so I use my brilliant Tarte Kabuki brush which transports the bronzer beautifully over the whole face. The little box however is so small that it is difficult to get the brush into the product or indeed any other brush! Also, the lid won't stay open and is constantly shutting on me which is really annoying. None of these things put me off the powder and I will continue to use it for evermore (well, at least the summer!), but if it had been in a less gimmicky, more practical container - maybe like Laura Geller etc. I would have much preferred it. Hate to drop a star for such a super product, but it does detract from the enjoyment of using it, and as I have said, it serves no purpose and I feel is purely a style gimmick. Other than that, I would without hesitation recommend it and will certainly be re-ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BabyBlonde The Best Bronzer!
This is by far the best bronzer I have ever used.
I'm naturally fair skinned and this gives me a lovely, healthy glow that people have complimented me on. It goes on so lightly with not a hint of tango or shimmer! Worth the money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chellb Lovely colour
This bronzer has a lovely colour , the brush can flake a little bit but was nice to use a bronzer with no glitter in it. However as the day went on my skin started to tingle and eventually I had to wash it off . If you have very sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend using this product it's a shame really as the colour is lovely. Sadly I will be returning this back to QVC.
