Hoola Caramel

Benefit Hoola Caramel Box o’ Powder (Bronzer) ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, golden undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation that ranged from medium to mostly opaque (two to three layers). The powder felt soft, a little powdery in the pan but applied evenly and blended out easily on my skin. Despite being matte, it didn’t appear flat or dry, and it made my skin appear a bit smoother overall. The color stayed on well for eight hours before starting to fade on my skin.

That looks gorgeous on you, Christine. Really beautiful.

(Check your last word in the description. It says sin. I assume meant skin.)

Really impressed with these Benefit bronzers. Never really paid much attention to Hoola (original) before, since I thought it looked too light for my skin, but I recently got it and like it. Goes on darker than I expected and works nicely for my skintone

This is lovely and, thankfully, not orangish! I still have plenty of UD Jawbone left for now, but this could be an excellent replacement for when I run out.
