All about: Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick

Love it or hate it, contouring is here to stay. Done badly it can be an absolute fright, but when it’s done well it can be the best enhancer – note: not transformer – you face has met yet.
When Benefit's Hoola bronzer hit the scene what feel like years ago, the contour-and-glow genre was just getting started. The believably natural-looking bronzer was an instant hit, going on to become a veritable modern beauty icon and one that is universally flattering to boot. It is still one of the few products that I apply without fail every day, and to say I have gone through literally dozens of them would be putting it mildly!
Many would say don’t mess with a legend, but the clever types at Benefit have done just that – not changing the original Hoola, but releasing some exciting new offerings that take a single bronzer and make it a family.
The first I’d like to give a shout out to is the Hoola Quickie Contour Stick, which is a super portable, creamy version of the powdery original. It’s fair to say that makeup in stick form is not new, with everything from eyeshadow to foundation to blush available in that format. Still, flipping the famous bronzing powder to contour stick makes the most of Hoola's bestselling hue, turning it into a new and fresh formula that even eliminates the need for a brush if you so see fit. Benefit has opted for a matte, soft cream-to-powder consistency for this baby and a dome shaped tip, meaning that applies in a pigmented swipe and is much more precise than the original, and great for contouring on the go. It blends seamlessly and is also remarkably longwearing, which is always a bonus when it comes with an RRP of $52.00.
The Quickie Contour Stick is one of the Hoola family's two fresh additions, being accompanied by the new Hoola Lite (RRP $54.00).  The new, finely milled bronzer has the same soft-matte finish, and blends on smoothly and seamlessly. Ideal for fair skin or over the winter months when you’re not seeing as much sun, this is a definite must-have if you’re as big a Hoola fas as me.
