I hated this highlighter on my skin. It would disappear in a matter of hours and I felt the color wasn't pigmented enough to be a highlighter for my skin.
Absolutely adore this product. First tried in the Benefit 'Finding Mr Bright' kit as the miniature version and completely fell in love with it. Described as Benefits supermodel in a bottle, this really lives up to its name.
Goes on and blends easily, and gives a shimmery glow onto any assents its applied onto, great for brow bones and on the cupids bow.
I used to use this all the time (:
I loved it!
This is a fabulous highlighter. A lot of highlighting products out there make you look like a character from Twilight because they sparkle so much, but this one just glows. It's gorgeous.
The bottle doesn't seem to contain much product when you first look at it, but when you realise how little product you need (and I mean next-to-nothing) you will feel like there's loads. I'm not sure about the fact that it's in the nail polish bottle though, because as with all nail polish, you always end up with a bit at the end that's wasted because you can't reach it with the brush. I think it might be better in a little squeezy tube.
The shade is the lightest pink, which is perfect for me because my skin doesn't contain the slightest bit of warmth whatsoever. Those of you with a more tanned complexion will probably prefer Moon Beam.
I use this on my cheekbones and my brow bones just to add shape and light. If I have really dark circles, sometimes I mix a teeny-tiny bit to my EL DoubleWear concealer on the back of my hand and it gives it a lovely light-reflecting dimension.
This product gives me that wonderful dewy look that I love!! SOOOOOOO MUCH PRODUCT!!:) Not clumps of glitter, but nice suttle shimmer!! I will purchase again. If I ever run out!
I've had one bottle of High Beam for a couple of years and I'm not even 1/4 way through it! Highlighters are not in my everyday makeup routine, but it's nice to have if I decide I want to use it. I used to have really oily skin so I avoided highlighters because I would feel like a shiny disco ball with all the sheen. But now my skin is pretty "normal" now that I'm 35, so I may need to pull out the bottle again and see how it looks. Usually I prefer adding a drop or two to my moisturizer and lightly powder over top of that for a more natural finish. I have a lot of acne scars and I guess I feel like highlighting draws more attention to the flaws on my face. It's a great product, but I don't think it's for me.
Great highlighter! Although its not the most expensive highlighter out on the market, definitely not the cheapest either. But I love the sheen and shimmer that it gives to my face.
I just dab a bit along the tops of my cheekbones and stiple with a duo fibre brush. Then I take a kabuki brush and blend it together with my blush and the effect is really really subtle, natural yet gives me glowing effect.
And what I love about most? Since I am a sucker for packaging, I love the nail polish bottle type feel.
The only concern I have is that if I don't blend out with a kabuki, my foundation underneath will clump a bit. But other than, HIgh Beam is definitely a great, must-have highlighter!
I have tried many highlighters including Nars Albatross, Mac Vanilla Pigment but my all time favorite has got to be the Benefit high beam. I wish I would have found thins one first! I absolutely love this liquid highlighter. For reference I have NC20-25 skin tone. I use this as a highlight after I put on my foundation and blush and just dab it on my cheek bones and use a concealer brush to lightly blend. It works great! Its gives that glowy, dewy, perfect fresh sheen without being glittery. I like the nail polish applicator but I am ¾ of the way through my bottle and it is now hard to get the reaming product out of the bottle. That is the only con I have with this product other thank that I love it and will definitely be repurchasing!
the sales women at benefit put this on me. I idnt find a differce to technics high lights it is only £2 in body care so if you are not very sure about buying this product try technics. how ever it is very gunky and i dont think it will last very long.
Great highlighter. Spreads very easily and has really good pigments. Works everywhere...top of the cheek bone, eyebrow arch, temple and cupids bow.
