Benefit Hoola Lite Review & Swatches
Benefit Cosmetics is about to launch their new Hoola Lite bronzer at Ulta this coming Sunday and I just so happened to find one in-store a few days early! Hoola Lite is a natural, soft matte bronzer that's ideal for fair skin and claims to have a smooth, finely milled texture.
I used to use the original Hoola bronzer in the summertime when I was younger and tanned a lot...I loved the natural matte finish and the way it blended seamlessly into my skin. But the past few years I've been really careful to avoid sun exposure, and I stay pretty fair year-round so the original Hoola is way too dark for me.
Thankfully, Benefit had us fair-skinned gals in mind when they created Hoola Lite. Let's take a look!
Hoola Lite comes in the same boxed packaging that all of the Benefit face powders do and includes a flat brush that sits inside. The box has a hinged lid that with a mirror inside...I'm not sure if this is something new or if they've been doing it for a while. When I used to use Hoola a few years ago, the entire lid came off and there was no mirror.
Swatched on my arm, you can see that it's not really cool or warm but is just a light, neutral brown. That's what I loved about the original Hoola...it wasn't orange or a cool-toned shade that you would use for contouring. This truly is the same exact thing, just lighter.
Here it is next to the original Hoola, which looks really dark on my fair skin. I used Hoola Lite on my face today and it gave me the perfect glow...it didn't look like I was wearing bronzer at all, but it warmed up my skin in the most natural way.
If you have fair to light skin, you're going to love Hoola Lite. It's the perfect bronzer for pale girls!
