The new benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick as well as Hoola Lite Bronzing Powder
A true-life conversation between me as well as contouring…
ME: will you please go away?
I mean…I’m quite sure that contouring has to autumn out of favor as well as fade into the shadows someday, however it’s still going strong for now, particularly at Benefit, as well as I’ve got the evidence for ya: the new Hoola Quickie Contour Stick ($28) as well as Hoola Lite Bronzing Powder ($29).

I believe I mention this every 15 minutes, however I’m not a huge contouring person (highlights for life, yo!). I provided it the old college try when again, though, with these new products because, well, you just never know, right?

I started with the Quickie Contour Stick…
Benefit Quickie Contour Stick
It’s a matte warm bronzed brown cream-to-powder contouring stick, as well as benefit suggests that you can apply it down the sides of your nose, under your cheekbones as well as around the edge of your face, then blend it in with your fingers or a brush.
After a few go-rounds with it, well, let’s just state that I won’t be flipping over to #TeamContour anytime soon…
It’s kinda difficult to use, since the stick is wide as well as feels uncomfortable when I run it under my cheekbones as well as down sides of my nose.
I always end up with waaay as well much of it on my face, as well as then after I blend it in, I can’t truly see any type of contouring impact at all.
I believe there are few things going on…

It would be much better (for me) if it had cooler undertones
I believe the Contour Stick is just as well warm to effectively contour my skin tone (and most likely most skin tones in general). If it was cooler, or perhaps if it had more grayish undertones, then I believe it might much better chisel out those contours, however as it is now, it’s just not workin’ for me.
Oh, as well as the very first time I opened it — as well as I don’t understand if the heavy weights in my HIIT class have turned me into She-Ra Princess of Power (doubt it!) — however the stick flew out as well as sailed halfway across the room.
Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzing Powder
This one is a matte golden bronze right in the middle on the temperature scale. It’s soft as well as blends well into the skin.
Basically, it’s a lighter version of benefit Hoola, which I loooooove, however with my skin tone, I’m most likely not the target customer. Hoola Lite might virtually be a deal with powder for me, however if you’re lighter than I am, inspect it out.
FYI, it smells like extremely strong Hawaiian Punch… great thing I like Hawaiian Punch.
Where to discover them
The Hoola Quickie Contour Stick as well as Hoola Lite Bronzing Powder are offered now on the internet as well as at benefit stores as well as counters.
