NYC Sunny Bronzer vs. Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Two bronzers that are easily compared to each other are the NYC Sunny Bronzer and the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Though the packaging and price is quite different, the product inside of them really isn't! Check out my thoughts of each individually below:

NYC Sunny Bronzer: This bronzer is sold at CVS and most drugstores for less than 3 buckaroos! That's incredible for a matte bronzer period, but especially for one this great! I have used this for quiet some time now and have no complaints other than it didn't match my skin tone as well! The sunny bronzer is more "orangy" in tone so there are few people who match well with this color! As far as how long it stays on I would say about 4-5 hours in air condition and about 30 minutes in the outdoor heat of Florida! Haha! This does blend fairly well and can be sheered out to give the overall face a nice bronze look or can be built up to nicely contour the cheekbones and forehead.
Overall: You can't beat it! Though now I have others I reach for more, I have definitely gotten my 3 dollars use out of it!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer: This bronzer is sold at both Ulta and Sephora for 28$ and is the best ever! In the packaging it looks very light however it shows up on almost anybody! This bronzer is more olive/yellow in skin tone so this will definitely look better on WAY more peoples face. This bronzer is finely milled so it is super super easy to blend and can be used for just about anything! This is definitely my go to bronzer every day. I find it is definitely worth the money!

Left: Sunny, Right: Hoola
Overall Final Verdict: Though the Sunny bronzer from the drugstore is way cheaper I find that I prefer Hoola! It goes with more skin tones and though the box-like packaging is a little bulky for storage purposes and traveling, it is more sturdy than Sunny. However, I would recommend Sunny for beginners who want to experiment with bronzer and learn how to do it! Both of these bronzers are definitely worth their price and both have a star place in my makeup collection!
