I purchased this after reading the great reviews on MUA. I regret it - it's going back! I am normally quite generous when reviewing products but I couldn't find anything to like about this product.I am normally a fan of BeneFit's products but I thought High Beam was awful. The texture is vile!!! It's difficult to blend with foundation, cakey when powder is applied on top. Did not show up on my NC20 skin. (Maybe moonbeam would be a more suitable colour for me but I still wouldn't buy it purely because of the gloopy texture.) Tried it underneath my brows - it was ok, but highlighting eye shadows look 100 times prettier and more natural. Admittedly, it's cheaper that a lot of highlighters but the quality is poor so all in all a waste of money. There are many superior highlighters on the market. continued >>

I am pale, but definitely prefer Moon Beam to High Beam. High Beam is pretty but on me just comes out as being white and too sparkly.

This highlighter looks pretty much like nailpolish, complete with a nailpolish applicator brush. For that reason, it's painstakingly awkward to apply evenly. It's an iridescent whitish-pink color that would probably only suit someone with pale skin, like me. Apparently, you're supposed to dab it on your face wherever you want highlights, wait a little while, then blend it with your fingertips. I usually put it on my brow bone and on the corners of my eyes. The makeup artist who did my face for my wedding also put it on the tip of my nose and above my eyebrow arches, which I thought was interesting. Anyway, the shimmery, highlighted look I get from this highlighter is pretty, but only if I manage to blend it very well. (And that's not an easy task.) However, it's not especially long-lasting and will look "patchy" after a couple of hours, especially under my eyebrows. Again, the nailpolish design is unwieldy and makes the product come out "gloppy", and it definitely requires some time and skill to blend flawlessly. I probably would try something else before I spent $22 on this again.

I LOVE THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I ALWAYS KEEP IT IN MY BAG and take it with me wherever I go!! It makes me look so good in pictures and it awakens me up after a hard night of partying. This is the first product I everrr bought from benefit along with dandelion (huge fav cant live w/o)... I'm not a really big fan of the line though, anyway I'm really impressed with these two products. Its just has the right amount of shimmer, the right amount of glow... It also looks great if you wear it alone. Love it!

I bought this in college (at Indiana University, where the founders of BeneFit are famous alumna!), and wasn't sure after reading all of the great reviews, why I stopped using it...pulled it out of the collection, and remembered. It's pretty, but on me, even as a highlighter, it is more "glittery" in light and less "glowy", and "glowy" is what I aim for with these types of products. I think I might possibly use it for going out, but for daytime and a more grown-up approach to shimmer, I will stick with Becca Pressed Shimmer powder and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector.

Just bought this yesterday. I've been looking for a highlighter that brightens my skin, without making me look shiny or greasy. High Beam is perfect! My skin looks dewy (I put it on my cheekbones and around my temples/eyebrows). I've also discovered that if I put it in the inner corner of my eyes and on my underye circles before I put on concealer, it brightens up my eye area beautifully. It's almost the exact same as Laura Mercier's Secret Brightener, but you get a ton more product at a much cheaper price!

This is pure magic in a little bottle! Its a pinkish-white pearly sheen illuminator in color. This definitely goes down in my book as one of the best cosmetic products ever invented. No one should be without this. Its a fav among make-up artists. I love to use this in the corners of my eyes and in the tear duct area and on the brow bone, also around the lips and nose and it creates a youthful, luminous and dewy look. It can be applied over or under make up or alone. It evens out and brightens up any dark spot. High Beam also seems to last forever, even though I just bought it the amount u need is so little for just the right amount of glow. Go out and buy this right now gals! If you want something more pigmented try BECCA'S skin shimmering perfector in pearl which is also great.

One of the only two Benefit products that I actually like. This is a great highlighter. At first I thought that it is so expensive, however I need such a tiny drop for a highlighted glow that one bottle will last forever! It is a pinky silver sheen that is perfect for my NC15 complexion. It is not oily, dries very light weight and does not accentuate pores. If I should ever run out I will repurchase.

I finally have found a product that gives me a dewy finsih. I mix my moisturizer with the Benefit High Beam and then apply to my entire face. The end result is a soft, dewy look.
