New from Benefit Cosmetics / Hoola Range & Shy Beam review

Afternoon lovelies!

I’m so exited for todays post as one of my absolute favourite brands-Benefit Cosmetics has brought out some amazing new products and as soon as I got my hands on them and I couldn’t wait to share them with you 🙂

If you’ve been following me for a while and you also watch my videos on YouTube then you would know my love for the Hoola Bronzer, I use it all the time and it’s my absolute fave…well Benefit have now extended the Hoola Range and added three new products- Hoola Zero Tanlines body bronzer, Dew the Hoola liquid bronzer for face and a gorgeous Bronzer/Contour Brush to go with your Hoola. I’m also going to include the brand new Shy Beam matte liquid highlighter. So many exiting new products for you!!

So starting off with the brand new Hoola Zero Tanlines* (£19.50), which basically is a body bronzer. First of all I have to mention the packaging … it really is like a holiday in a bottle! When I was photographing it I got really overexcited for my upcoming holiday in Spain and I will definitely be taking it with me 🙂 Anyway back to the product, it comes with a really cool sponge applicator, which is within the cap and what you do is squeeze the gel onto it and then apply in circular strokes and buff it into the skin for an instant bronze look. This product is great for when you want an instant tan, it looks very natural and streak free and I absolutely love it! It’s great for wearing during the day or out in the evening, going on a date or a special event, it will make you skin look flawless. I’ve just been putting it on my arms, legs and décolletage area and I’ve actually received compliments on how beautiful my tan looks .Hoola tan also doesn’t transfer on your clothes and will last up to 12 hours, it’s not sticky and has a lovely soft, beachy fragrance.

Next up we have Dew the Hoola* (£22.50) which is Benefit’s new matte liquid bronzer for the face. I actually got to try a little sample of this last year, which came in the limited edition ‘Do the Hoola’ kit. So this one is another fab product I’m currently loving, you can use it all over the face to warm up your complexion or to contour. I actually really like contouring with it, it’s very easy and looks very natural. I apply it to the hollows of the cheeks, top of forehead, temples and jaw line and blend using a damp beauty blender, it really is super easy and I will demonstrate how I do it in an upcoming makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel so be sure you subscribe so you don’t miss it 😉

Then we have my all time fave-the Hoola Bronzer* (£23.50) This is the perfect matte bronzer, it’s very neutral, it doesn’t have any shimmer at all. I like to use it to warm up my complexion and also contour to add some shape and definition to my face. I’ve actually been using it to set Dew the Hoola as I always like to set my cream products. It comes with a little brush which is actually really good as it’s the perfect shape for contouring, it’s also good for traveling. Another brush I have been using to apply Hoola is the new Bronzing & Contouring brush* (£17.50) which is so pretty! It has a gold handle which looks like bamboo, it’s very soft and fluffy and also cruelty free. It stands on its own, it looks beautiful displayed on my dressing table. You can also use it to apply blush, or powder it’s pretty multi use!

Lastly I want to share Dandelion Shy Beam* (£19.50) which is Benefit’s brand  new matte highlighter, but lets just take a moment to appreciate this packaging! It comes in an absolutely stunning rose gold/metallic pink bottle it’s so beautiful! The product itself is pretty amazing too! It’s a nude pink, matte highlighter. I like to apply it on top of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow and brow bone even under my eyes and on the inner corners for a pop of highlight, it looks so pretty. I’m definitely planning to use this in my upcoming Spring makeup look and I honestly can’t wait.
