It seems like Benefit are constantly releasing new products, one of the few brands I know of that work tirelessly to always be at the forefront of new and innovative releases. Coupled with their stand-out packaging and unique media campaigns, Benefit are easily one of the most fun and exciting brands out there. I'm not always the biggest fan of their new releases, some have been a little hit and miss with me over the years, but the new Benefit Do The Hoola Beyond Bronze Kit is quite possibly one of my favourite releases yet!
A 5 piece kit, Do The Hoola is the perfect way to achieving an effortless bronzed look. Featuring some of Benefits most popular and cult products, as well as a completely new product which is currently exclusive to the Do The Hoola Kit, it makes summer looks super easy. So what's inside?
There's a 3g mini Benefit Hoola Bronzer, one of my favourite products from Benefit which I love for both bronzing and contouring, it is a gorgeous matte cool-toned bronze that comes with it's own mini brush for making application on the go a breeze. Hoola is arguably one of Benefit's most famous products, a product I genuinely couldn't be without, and this 3g mini is set to last ages. I've had mini Hoola's before in Christmas gift sets, and they last forever! The perfect size for popping in your handbag for on-the-go touch ups, too (like a lot of products in this bronze perfection kit!). Full review here.
Next up we have a mini 4g Benefit Benebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm in the shade Benebalm, a lovely cherry red that gives lovely colour pay-off when used alone, or can be given a touch more oomph when applied over Benebalm Benetint. Full review here.
Of course Do The Hoola couldn't showcase Hoola Bronzer without including a generously sized 6.5ml mini Benefit Hoola Ultra Plush Lipgloss, a subtle lipgloss that gives a lovely shimmering golden nude colour. It's lovely when teamed with nude lipsticks, but also works beautifully when worn alone as a touch of something-something with a bronzed summer look. Full review here.
Benefit haven't forgotten eyes with the new Do The Hoola kit and inside you'll find a travel size 3g Benefit They're Real! Mascara, the UK's best-selling mascara for a long time now, it's a real hit with beauty adorers all over the world. Perfect for giving your lashes more volume from root to tip, They're Real! is undoubtedly one of the best mascaras for lengthening and separating lashes, whilst holding a curl from morning to night. Full review here.
Last but not least, and the new and exclusive product in this kit, we have a 7g Benefit Dew The Hoola, a new innovation from Benefit in the form of a liquid Hoola bronzer. This is quite an exciting product for me, because I don't own any other liquid bronzers, a product type I haven't really dabbled in before. Benefit recommend you use Dew The Hoola for contouring, sweeping under cheekbones for definition, it's best applied with your fingertips. I have a mediterranean complexion and on me, this works well. It adds a touch of warmth in all the right places and I could even get away with wearing this all over as a bronzing base. That said, I do have to admit that it is slightly orange toned, which against my complexion is easy to hide, but on paler beauties I see this being quite a problem. It'd be great when Benefit release Dew The Hoola individually and in full size, to see a couple of shades which would work with a variety of skin tones, because as it stands with just this one shade, I imagine quite a few orange tinted pale beauties.
Of course like all Benefit kits, it also comes with a pretty big mirror inside, as well as a Tips & Tricks Instant Beauty leaflet guide, which shows you how and where to use each of the products inside, including some Benefit tips and tricks for getting the most out of each product.
The Benefit Dew The Hoola Beyond Bronze Kit is currently exclusive to QVC, RRP £25.50 - although you can currently snap it up at the introductory price of £23.16 here.
