Beauty Battle: Nars Laguna Bronzer Vs. Benefit Hoola Bronzer

For those of you not familiar, “Beauty Battle” is a series that I originally started over on my YouTube channel where I battle out two similar products and let you guys know which one I would recommend buying!

For this battle, I tried out two very popular bronzers: the NARS Laguna Bronzer and the Benefit Hoola Bronzer.  I love both of these bronzers for different reasons, but alas, there can only be one winner.  So keep on reading to see who won and check out the video below to see both of them actually being applied to my face!

NARS Laguna
I love this bronzer for so many reasons.  You can easily apply to get just a hint of color or you can build it up and look like a bronze goddess.  And the shade itself is perfect, with a hint of shimmer.  On the flip side, because it is so buildable, sometimes it does take a few rounds to get to the level of bronze I’m looking for.

Benefit Hoola
This is a staple bronzer for so many people and it’s easy to see why.  It’s a perfect matte shade and the powdery formula means that you see instant results.  The downside?  The powdery formula also means that you sometimes end up with some patchy spots and an uneven application.

The Winner
Both bronzers have their pros and cons, but in the end, I have to give the winning title to NARS Laguna for the buildable color without the risk of messing up!
