Hey girlies :)
Today I'm just doing a comparison post on two recent buys of mine.
I got a question the other day - is the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer (Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder) similar to Benefits Hoola?
I say.... Yes. Close enough.
Here is what they look like packaging wise. They both use cardboard type packaging which i'm not a huge fan of. Neither of these bronzers are very travel-friendly as the packaging can open easily.
Pictured is Bourjois Bronzer in shade 51 (L), next to Benefit Hoola (R), if you are not familiar.
Bourjois has 16.5g of product, and the Benefit one has 11.0g of product.
I bought both of these abroad while I was in England. The Bourjois bronzer cost me about 6.99 Pounds, and the Benefit Hoola bronzer cost me at least 20.00 Pounds from memory.
So far, Bourjois is better value for the money for sure. On to the swatches, the proof is in the product it self, of course.....
Here they are swatched next to each other. Hoola (Top) and Bourjois (Bottom).
As you can see, Hoola is more cool toned, whereas the Bourjois one comes off more orange. On the skin though, the Bourjois bronzer does not look as warm as it does here (heavy swatch :P)
For the color, I prefer Hoola. But for the price, Bourjois looks lovely enough anyway. There is only a slight difference when blended out. If I could only buy one or the other at a later date, I would choose Bourjois. Save money, get more product, they are similar enough anyway. Even the consistency seems the same to me, very soft and blendable.
I hope this helped :)
