Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick

Everyone has probably owned a box of Benefit's famous Hoola bronzing powder at some stage, and it looks like the Hoola family is about to be extended. Not only have they released a lighter shade of cult classic Hoola, Benefit have also created a contour stick promising to make sculpting the face an absolute breeze.

Encased in similar packaging to Dew The Hoola, the 'Quickie Contour Stick' is a cream to powder formula that boasts fantastic pigment. We all know that in order to create a realistic looking contour the shade used needs to be slightly cool toned in order to mimic a shadow. This stick is not too warm and has such a good tone for contouring, it could probably also be used as a cream bronzer if you're into that.

I'm not a massive cream to powder formula fan as I prefer powder products just because I find them easier to blend. However this product does blend out well and is builable without looking heavy or muddy, something which is very hard to achieve with a cream contour product. I would be wary of using powder products alongside this though, as on my first attempt I did find it started to wear patchy throughout the day after I set my face with a translucent powder. However, Benefit do recommend setting it with a swish of Hoola powder, to accentuate and intensify your contour.

Overall I think this is a convenient little product and certainly lends itself well to creating a quick contour. Benefit are all about easy, everyday products and this is no different. The Hoola Quickie Contour Stick is available in May and will be priced at £23.50. Can we have the Dandelion Twinkle now, please?
