3 Benefit Hoola Bronzer Dupes That Are Just As Great As The Original
November 14, 2017
Every contour queen knows that the only way to really make your time-consuming contour look pop is by using bronzer. Using bronzer adds extra definition to your face, and makes your cheekbones more noticeable. One of the most trusted products in the beauty realm for this is Benefit Cosmetics’ Hoola bronzer ($29), which adds an extra boost of definition without being overbearing or too orange-tinted like many other bronzers. However, this bronzer comes with one major downside: its price. For $29, you get the tiniest container that is guaranteed to barely last, especially if you’re contouring daily. Save your cash and try one of these dupes, which can be found at your local drug store and come with almost twice as much product for a fraction of the price. Believe us, your piggy bank will thank you for these fan-favorite beauty buys.
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Bronze ($4.29)
Rimmel’s bronzer is a spot-on doppelgänger to Benefit Cosmetics’ coveted bronzer, and comes with almost twice as much product less than half of the price. Its soft light brown color is almost identical to the Hoola bronzer, and it also has a light shimmer to give you a sun-kissed glow all day long. Rimmel’s iconic bronzer is also very lightweight formula, so whether you’re going for a subtle contour or dramatically chiseled cheeks, this bronzer will always have you covered.

This bronzer is a spot-on replica of Benefit Cosmetics’ Hoola bronzer, and it’s definitely saving our contoured cheeks and our wallets. It’s just as creamy and pigmented, and just about any skin tone can wear this and look fabulous the whole day. Ulta’s bronzer even has a nearly identical taupe shade like the original Hoola bronzer, and applies just as effortlessly. Here’s a quick tip: don’t hate on beauty store makeup lines. Stores like Sephora and Ulta learn how to make flawless products by looking at the brands they sell and trying to dupe it, so they will aways have products that are just as great (if not better) than pricier name brands. They’re basically making the same exact product at half of the price because you’re not paying for advertisements! So, save your pennies and grab one (or ten) of these amazing dupes.
