I love to dabble with a spot of personalisation. From the monogram initials on my Mulberry to my very own Starbucks Frappuccino phone case, I think it is such a fun way to give a treasured item a hint of personality. Never once though did I think about inscribing my name on my favourite makeup item…not until I received my very own Benefit Hoola bronzer last year and my friends and family were rather envious of my personalised powder. Well, rather excitingly, the hot news from Benefit HQ is that you can all now own a bespoke bronzer with your name engraved on the top of your Hoola box and on the mini brush!
Hoola is one of those classic bronzers that will never be absent from my makeup collection. I think I have swirled and buffed my way through two or three Hoolas by now and remember it being one of my first makeup purchases as a excitable teenager let loose in Boots with some birthday money. It is the ultimate way to cheat a real tan and give your complexion a natural looking, just-back-from-the-beach glow without the dreaded sparkle or shimmer. It is matte and the right shade of brown to avoid any orange-y tinge – it is basically your Summer holiday in a box, all year round!
You can get creating your own personalised Hoola now on the Benefit Cosmetics website for £28.50. Such a fab present for a friend or maybe just a little treat for yourself?! Let me know if you are a fan of customising your cosmetics?
