A classic staple in many makeup bags is Benefit’s Hoola bronzer. The best-selling bronzer comes in four shades for all skin tones – love the inclusivity! – and has a matte finish that looks gorg on everyone… but it’s kind of expensive, coming in at $32 per palette. So, we have found 12 Hoola bronzer dupes that will have your skin radiating at an affordable price!
Solar Paint by Glossier is a great dupe for the Hoola bronzer that blends into your skin for a natural look in any lighting. Solar Paint has Desert Milk™ (plant oil and extracts) which helps give your face glow. A little goes a long way, so make sure to slowly build up the product until you reach your ideal level of radiance.
This bronzer stick blends evenly into your skin, leaving a long-lasting glow. The Hoola dupe is vegan, cruelty-free, and without parabens, with a formula that’s water-resistant. Despite its non-greasy finish, it still slides on smoothly thanks to meadowfoam and sunflower seed oils, which are non-comedogenic – goodbye, clogged pores!
Oh My Glow Cream Bronzer has a coconut scent and is full of jojoba and castor oils, which balance excess oil and moisturize, respectively. The bronzer contains Vitamin E as well, helping to hydrate, protect, repair, and smooth your skin. The bronzer dupe is blendable and buildable with its cream formula.
Match Stix Matte Contour Skinstick is an excellent dupe for the Hoola bronzer with a wide range of shades for all skin tones. The Skinstick has a matte finish that gives you medium- to long-lasting coverage, and a lightweight, blendable, cream-to-powder formula. It’s also vegan, cruelty-free, and without parabens and phthalates.
Saie’s Cream Bronzer is a rich and buttery balm that blends evenly into your skin, so there aren’t any splotchy applications here. The formula has beneficial ingredients like colloidal oatmeal to calm and moisturize; grapeseed oil, which is bursting with antioxidants and vitamins; and elderberry extract to soothe your skin.
For under only $10, the e.l.f putty bronzer has a powdery finish that is lightweight. The Hoola dupe is buildable in pigmentation and effortlessly blends into your skin, giving you as subtle or intense a glow as you want. The Putty Bronzer’s key ingredients are argan oil and Vitamin E to hydrate and protect, so the actual sun won’t have nothin’ on your skin.
This Black-owned company’s pressed powder matte bronzer has a rich formula that makes for a fantastic Hoola dupe. The buildable matte bronzer features Niacinamide to minimize your pores, green tea extract to rejuvenate your skin, and sodium hyaluronate to moisturize and give extra plumpness. The bronzer comes in recyclable packaging, is vegan and cruelty-free, and contains ultra-clean ingredients.
Another excellent Hoola dupe is by Milk Makeup, one of our favorite gender-inclusive beauty brands. This liquid bronzer will leave a natural finish on your skin. The plant-derived collagen will tighten and brighten your skin, while the snow and reishi mushrooms and hyaluronic acid will give your skin an extra plump look.
The Superpowder Bronzing Powder is baked and has a semi-matte finish that will absorb the shine on your face. Achieve a subtle glow with plant-based ingredients of olive-derived squalane, which moisturizes, and mica, which gives your skin the reflective glow you’d normally have to burn to achieve (which, ugh, no thanks). There is no synthetic fragrance, and the formula is super clean, vegan, cruelty-free, and EWG verified.
tarte’s waterproof bronzer is another excellent, affordable choice that’s good for your skin, featuring marine plant extract to help with any creasing on your face. The cream formula is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and free of parabens. The formula is creamy and smooth, drying into a beautiful matte finish.
Instead of receiving only bronzer, the set comes with a powder blush and highlighter. The cream bronzer in the kit is cruelty-, sulfate-, and paraben-free, hydrating your skin with the Mangifera indica seed butter. Despite being a cream, the bronzer dries down into a powder. Paired with the highlighter, you have a contour that’s picture-perfect.
A classic drugstore dupe for Benefit’s OG is the Butter Bronzer from Physicians Formula. The bronzer has murumuru, cupuaçu, and tucuma butters to moisturize your skin for a light, natural glow. The product is dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic, so even the most sensitive skin can appear sun-kissed without irritation. It’s also cruelty-free, so feel ethical when you wear it, too!
