This is such a wonderful highlighter! I use it specifially on my upper cheek bones, then contour beneath with a bronzer. My skin glows, and I get compliments about how I have glowing skin. I do not have difficulty in blending it, as a little goes a long way. Not to mention the fact that I've had my current bottle for a loooong time, and I'm only just seeing it start to get towards the bottom. This is just shimmer, in doesn't have much color, only a subtle pale silvery petal pink. It will make you glow and add some highlight. Yes I have other highlighters that are cheaper, but this is worth the money because it last for so long! Plus, you can tell this is better quality.
To put it bluntly - this product is not worth the price! If possible, definitely try and get a sample before you spend the crazy amount that Benefit charge. This highlighter is far too pinky/silvery for my skin tone - nc20. I think it would be much more suitable for very light skin. It does however make a good brow bone or inner corner highlight however this can also be achieved through inexpensive eyeshadows. I do like the packaging but it is just not worth the cost. I would defintiely recommend MACS cream colour base in Pearl over this.
Doesn't blend well, too silvery, can't get it to look good. All I've got to say. Wouldn't recommend to anyone except maybe to those with VERY pale skin tones. Not worth the price, haven't been impressed by any BeneFit products tbh stick with quality e.g. MAC/ NARS
I find most highlighters are too glittery, and could definitely make you look like a disco ball. And after using a ton of powder highlighters that give you this tendency, I've decided to switch to cream highlighters and this one, which I'd classify as a liquid highlighter. And I've really loving the switch because it looks so natural and radiant! I've never in my life have been able to pull of highlight on my cheekbones or the bridge of my nose because then I would look either too glittery or too oily, and this definitely hasn't given me any of those because this looks life a gorgeous perlescent sheen that makes me looks healthy and more awake! Definitely recommend you guys buy this! :)
I really wanted this or a long time and I finally got it!
I really like this highlighter and it gives a nice shimmery pink glow to your skin
It is very festive and beautiful, however it does not last all day!
You only need a very small amount of product to achieve a luminous effect but, this is a pricey product!
I will not re-purchase, as there is are alternatives!
Eh....I prefer Mac's beauty powder in Too Chic...This seems almost too cool for me or something. I just don't get all the hype around it and gthe packaging is gross...Can we get a pump or tube please??
I've had a bottle of this forever and, honestly, haven't used it all that much - until recently. I've always known it was great for highlighting cheekbones, browbones, cupid's bow, etc. and have used it when I wanted to look extra-dewy on a night out - but, for whatever reason, I never thought to use it on my eyes. With a teensy-weensy eyeliner brush, I now use this to "line" the inner corners of my eyes (we all know about the white shimmer effect on the inner eyes - making your eyes look larger and more doe-eyed). This is a subtler, but still impactful, alternative to more pigmented shadows because the formula is light, easily blendable, and wonderfully reflective. So I line the outside corners of my eyes with whatever liner or shadow I'm using that day, and the inner corners with High Beam. Of course, it's still wonderful for all its previous uses, but I find that it's now my favorite product for that one, specific niche of a cosmetic need. When this bottle is gone, I may or may not replace it with another but, since I already have it, it's been a nice little discovery.
High Beam was the first highlighter I bought, I was a bit unsure if I should buy it as I didn't know how to use it and if I would like it and the biggest worry if I would ever use it. I am now grateful for this purchase as it is probably the best thing in my make up bag!
It took me a couple of attempts to get it right, naturally! At first I put way too much on and looked absolutely ridiculous but I kept experimenting and finally perfected the art.
I got a small eyeshadow brush (I am not a fan of the applicator that comes with it) and got a small amount of HB onto it as it spreads nicely and of course, less is more! Also, using less means it lasts a hell of a lot longer!
In the daytime, I wear HB UNDER my foundation as it enables me to look like I have no make up but still give that subtle highlight! I put it under the eyebrows and under my eye as this contrasts with my black eyeliner and mascara, making my eyes stand out!
In the night time, I wear HB over my foundation and under my powder!
Definitely one of my best buys!
1. I like the over all awakened look, it really brightens my eyes and brows and cheekbones.
2. I would have preferred it to be in a tube rather than a bottle.
3. I don't like how it SOMETIMES makes my skin look oilier than it already is and it can easily turn grey if not applied with care (because it blends with eye-shadow or mascara)
This product was not very good for me. It settled into my pores and made my skin look oilier than it already was (I didn't know that was possible!) I only used it on my cheekbones, brow bone, and sometimes my cupid's bow. I don't think this was flattering on me at all. When I tried to blend it in more, it didn't even show up! Seems like this is one of those all or nothing products. I like my liquid luminizer from Revlon a lot more. I won't repurchase this product.
Looking back, I think I might have been a little harsh. I think I was just upset that this product didn't live up to the hype and expected too much out of it. I added a lippie because if you work with it, it can actually look really nice. But, I just don't have the patience to work with a highlighter for an hour and a half (okay, I might be exaggerating a little :)
