This Bronzer Promises a Summer Glow With One Swipe featured image

Beauty editor or not, we all have that one product that stands the test of time within our makeup bags. Not because it has a long lifespan, but because we keep running back to it when we realize similar products don’t really measure up. For me, that tried-and-true product is Benefit Cosmetics’ Hoola bronzer. I absolutely love the natural glow it delivers, and because it’s matte, it’s virtually impossible to overdo it. Now on my seventh or eighth purchase (I’ve lost count at this point), I just about squealed when I heard news that the brand was finally expanding the Hoola range. I knew I had to get my hands on these new products.

My favorite of the bunch? Dew the Hoola ($28), a liquid version of the must-have bronzer, that lives up to all the hype its been given. Its lightweight yet buildable texture allows you to create a subtle bronzed look or a full-on contour without ever looking caked on or heavy. It’s versatile enough to use on a bare face for a straight-from-the-beach glow, mixed in with your moisturizer for an all-over believable tan, or in place of your traditional bronzer to sculpt out your cheekbones and contour your face.

Dew the Hoola goes on like an ultralight serum and dries matte yet delivers the most subtle backlit glow. I use a foundation brush to apply a line of it (apply one pump to your hand and dip the brush in) right under my cheekbones, blending it out for a natural look and setting it with the traditional Hoola bronzer for an all-day hold and even deeper bronzing effect. 

And if this isn’t enough, it has the most delicious scent (think of a mix between tropical sun-tan lotion and perfume) that leaves me thinking I’m on the sand when I’m sitting at my desk. We’ll chalk it up as a win.
