This product is so amazing! The color seems strong but it's balanced by the translucent texture of the balm so it's goes on very subtle....and sexy! My lips are very full so I notice the color just makes them look very sensual but appropriate. It's that innocent, sexy type of hue that attracts the eye. The formula is not sticky at all, it's very smooth and once again, as with many Benefit products, just a little bit goes along way. There's no mess or stained fingertips. Also, the balm is very long lasting and moisturizes lips very well. It really highlights your lips and it's so worth it!
Can we also praise Benefit's adorable packaging? I want to keep it along with the makeup.
Loved that it's subtle, Smooth, long-lasting, pretty, alluring, flattering

I am a sophomore in college and have been faithfully using Dallas since 8th grade. It's the perfect combo of bronzer and blush that's perfect for any time of the year. Since I am naturally tan, I find it's perfect for my complexion; it's gives me a rosy glow while deepening my tan. A little goes a long way and the box should last around a year. I would recommend it for anyone looking for the perfect balance. Ultimate fave from Benefit.

my skin color is fairly light so im pale but not white white. is this bronzer good for like winter time and mainly is it over all face or contour

i need to no if its overall face and does it make me look orange !!!
Hoola is great for whenever you want to achieve a tan look and to contour your face. As a devoted Hoola fan, I would not be using it for 5 years if it left me orange. It's truly gives a perfect matte tan so you don't look too made up, just natural. Since you are fairly light, a little will go along way! Enjoy!

Fake or Real or different colors?

I have been using Hoola for many years, I sometimes buy it on ebay...but what I have discovered there is either fake Hoolas on ebay or there is different shades of Hoola. Sometimes I will get one the will leave your face looking really tan, and then another times I get one that seems like a mat tint and does not tan your face like some I have had before. Is there fake Hoolas out there because I can really tell the difference or is there different shades of Hoolas? Thanks
I have been purchasing Hoola from my local Benefit counter since high school and have never had a problem with differing shades. Perhaps the bronzers you have purchased on eBay may have been tampered with, used, or old. Remember the appearance of makeup can also change due to changes in skin tones, like when the seasons change. The best way to make sure you are getting a fresh Hoola is to buy it from a trustworthy cosmetic retailer. Also, Hoola IS intended to be a matte bronzer as opposed to a shimmery one to convey a natural looking tan.

is dallas a blusher as well as a bronzer?

Dallas is best described as a combination of both a bronzer and a blush. Since you're getting both effects in one product, it's best to remember a little goes a long way. If you use too much, it can leave you looking shimmering and red so remember subtlety is key. All you need is a little frosting on your nose, cheeks, and forehead.
