I had this for a while but stopped using it because it was just "too much" when applied directly to the skin. Then I think I saw a Wayne Goss video where he mixed a similar product with moisturizer so I tried that with this product and it's WONDERFUL! I have pale, neutral undertone so the pink looks nice and gives me a dewy look. I really hate the applicator, but I just squeeze out a bit on my hand and mix with the moisturizer rather than using the brush. Give it a try!
I wanted to buy Benefit High Beam but did not want to fork out too much money, so I opted for this instead. I picked it up for $8 on sale and it is a staple in my make up bag!!! You get a subtle, dewy, natural pink finish, which (when applied correctly) compliments my skin beautifully. I wear it underneath blush, which accents my cheekbones well. Or I apply it to my nose, cupid's bow, lower lip as well as cheeks as an all-over highlighter. I wish the frosty/highlighter effect was slightly stronger though. But, I will certainly re-purchase because it is a great product and well-priced.
Oh, this was such a great find! This is probably as close to a dupe for Benefit's Highbeam as you can find in a drug store. Yes, the brush applicator is highly annoying but I just pulled on it until it came off and the applicator under it is perfect for getting just the right amount. This is so multi-use too. You can mix it with either foundation or moisturizer and apply all over the face and/or you can highlight just the areas of the face recommended for contouring. I like to highlight the face areas, especially my inner eye corners and cheekbones. This looks so identical to Highbeam that I will now buy this instead and you get enough for the one package to last at least a year, if not longer. It didn't irritate my skin or wear off too quickly. Highly recommend!!
I love this product! I use it everyday. When I am running errands, I put it on by itself. The pink under foundation gives a light shimmer and the darker tones can be used alone. Great product! Smooths the skin and protects! The On/Off protects your purse. And the smell is nice.
Love this product. Makes my skin look smooth and shimmery and healthy..gives me a nice glow over foundation or all alone. I cut the brush off and then when it appeared gone cut the tube with scissors and had still tons of use. Has grapeseed oil and some nice additives...no parabens that I could see which is a plus in my book. I would not only purchase this again but would get 2 at one time.....very nice and reasonably priced...use this everyday.
If I can only put one thing on before I leave the house, I will choose this. Okay, and maybe some mascara...But seriously, I love this stuff. I wear it day and night, over foundation or on bare skin, work or play. Like others mentioned, I pulled the brush part off (Didn't even require the use of pliers I'm so strong) and it's just a lot better to use that way. I take a pea sized dollop and use it to highlight my cheeks. I'll sometimes dab it right under my brows, subtly, or wherever I feel like highlighting! I disagree with other reviewers about it's "glitteriness"- I hate glitter, and would not put glitter on my face. This is shimmer, sheen, illuminating wonderfulness! I've only tried the pink light thus far, and I love the dewy pink glow it gives my cheeks. I get complimented on it a lot and people ask me "What are you using!? You look awesome!" (-Not to boast. I give all credit to the product.) When I apply it, I get a cooling sensation for some reason, and it doesn't cause any sort of breakout for me. I'm just worried- it's been discontinued at a lot of places, clearanced out, but I did find it at one local grocery store (At full price, figures.) I bought two tubes because I'm afraid I won't be able to find it anymore :/ Anyways, two thumbs up, and if you don't like this product, please send it to me!! Haha.
This is pretty when swatched on hand, but on my face its just pure glitter - especially in the sunlight. I like shimmer but I don't like obvious glitter. Don't like the packaging - the brush sucks. It is also pretty expensive for a drugstore product (I think it was retail $13?) but I got it on 75% off clearance so can't really complain. I'm assuming it's being discontinued since it was on clearance? If you're looking for a glittery highlighter, get this.
This gives a nice highlight, no shimmer. Got this on sale at CVS for $1.75. I have mixed it with regular foundation for a little extra 'light' on my face. I am NC 30-35
I love this. It is SO natural looking! It's not glittery, just literally a 'glow' and 'radiance'. It's so lovely. I am disappointed they are discontinuing this! I was at Priceline in Australia and got it on sale for $4 down from $30! I got 3! It's THAT good!
**RIGHT NOW 75% OFF AT CVS=$3.62!**
This stuff is Benefit's High Beam repackaged I swear! HB is $26 for 0.45 oz & Revlon's at full price is $13 for 1.00 oz so its really a bargain regardless of the super sale its on now. It an ethereal shimmering pink that gives an angelic glow. I use it over my mu or even on a bare face for a healthy sheen. Yes the brush sucks & no I don't own pliers, but a tweezer works fine, just plucks out fewer hairs I assume. Just plug in the tweezer to the base of the brush, grab a thick section of strands & pull! Keep going until u see the hole in the middle & now u can use it as a clean tube & save product. I like how u actually have to twist the top from ON to OFF, so I'm not afraid of squeezing this by accident while I carry it in my purse. Will I repurchase? NOT for a while, since I have over-stocked from this sale already! ;)
