I really didn't like this product. It seemed to do nothing for me. And the worst part is the price. I mean $30 is crazy. I found s better highlighter for half the price at the drugstore.
Love the colour of this, it gives a lovely sheen without looking too sparkly but it doesn't seem to stay for long and sometimes, because it's a liquid, it tends to make your foundation underneath look cakey. I haven't quite got the application right yet, perhaps it's better to put it on with a brush and then powder over the top.
There's not a lot of product for the money but as with most Benefit items, the packaging's funky and fun, even if it's not that practical.
Still looking for an HG highlighter that gives a sheeny glow with no sparkly bits. Might try some powders instead.
Wouldn't buy again, too pricey for what it is.
I like That Gal so I was excited when I saw this. I held off from purchasing as for $28 I think its a little expensive. I gave in when a full sized version was included in Benefit's Beauty in a Box set. I really like this. I use a foundation brush to apply. As other reviewers have described its a pink lotion with gold through it. You can see tiny gold specks on the skin, if you look close, but the overall effect gives a lift and lit up effect. So far I have been using this as a primer, under tinted foundation. I noticed that other reviewers have been using it over their make-up. I'll have to try that. I tend to like a more subtle glow though.
EDIT: I find this works great when mixed with TM or foundation that would ordinarily look a bit too dark for your skin. I stopped using this for a long time, and refound this when I was trying to use up a darker foundation. Works great. I think I will be repurchasing this. I think the container is cute, but wish I could see how much product is actually in there and how much is left. It's very pricey at $30!
I really wanted to like this product, but it's just okay to me. I usually mix it in with my foundation, and I feel like it doesn't really add much to my face. It's supposed to be a highlighting cream, but I feel like it faces away easily and is barely noticeable. I'm glad I got this in a small size (in the Finding Mr. Bright kit) because I would like to continue playing with it and attempting to make it work, but so far I'm just disappointed.
Not a fan. The packaging style, while cute and unique looking, is not great. I get the feeling there is not very much product in there, but there is no real way to tell. As a highlighter it is sub-par and a little greasy.
This is really great for nights that you want a little extra to look nice, but could be a bit much for everyday wear. The packaging has had a few explosions, which aren't the biggest deal, but it's definitely a bit annoying when you try to get a teeny bit of product and you take off the cap and realized it's gobbed up everywhere.
This is the first highlighter I bought from Benefit. It gives a very subtle sheen. And I would say it's a sheen rather than shimmer. If you like the natural look like I do then this does the job. I like makeup that doesn't look like you have any. I do agree with one of the posters that said when you rub it in your face, it does rub off the cream blush I put it on top off. That's not a deal breaker for me though. I will purchase this again but not full price. Best to get it during Sephora F&F
Didn't like it at all. I applied it over my foundation. It made a mess and created a cakey look over my cheek bones. I tried it a few times and ended up with same result. I guess I should stick with a powder highlighter since cream ones are very difficult to blend. I'm returning this one.. The reason I gave it 2 lippies instead of one is because it has a very subtle glow which is what I'm looking for.
changing my mind about this one, i really couldnt see a difference between this and the highbeam indoors, but wow is all i can say when i went outside. such a diiference! its more of a bronzy color that is gorgeous. and you dont need that much so im sure the tube will last a while
Didn't like the golden sheen. I much more prefer iridescence or some actual kind of pearly sheen, not gold. I tested this at Sephora, so I won't buy it. Costs too much anyway & the packaging is unnecessarily clunky.
