It is a gorgeous pink highlighter. I use it on my brow bone and my cheek bone after I apply blush. Blending the colors together gives you a natural makeup look. It's a little pricey, but it lasts you a while. I don't need to put much on to get the effect. It's one of the few products from benefit that I would buy again.
I like this product,it can be used on it's own (3 little dots placed at the top of your cheekbone),with Benefit Benetint for a really professional and long lasting look or with a little powder blush sweeped across to give a cute,cherub-like effect.
On the right skin tone,this pearilsed pink can be very flattering and make your skin look a million dollars.
However,the price is ridiculous.As the popularity of this product increases,I can imagine copies from cheaper brands emerging.So far in the UK,Superdrug have released a very similar product (in the same jar,same colour) but for a great value £5.I've not tried it yet as I still have some of Benefit's to use up but I will certainly go to Superdrug to see what their version is like.The ingredients or formula is not very complex so I can imagine copies to work quite well.
Also,the packaging is great at the beginning and the brush lasts well but I am reaching the bottom of the bottle and it's becoming very awkward to extract enough product.The brush is simply too short.To combat this,I leave the bottle upside down when not in use so the liquid is coating the brush.
Overall,I do like this product but I wouldn't pay for it myself again (I bought it for my prom) as the price is too extravagant.Saying that,I would be over the moon to receive it as a Christmas or Birthday present.
Oh,also worth mentioning that it's great for highlighting the arch of your eyebrows and a little tiny dab above your cupid's bow just above your lips gives your lips the illusion of fullness and health (the light reflecting particles are too thank for this me thinks).
I put it on before going out to the movies and bar. It's more of a going out type of prod. It looks quite good.
AMAZING this is one of those products that once mastered takes seconds to apply and has the effect that no one knows quite why u look different but know something about ur face rocks. I first looked at it and thought JESUS this stuff is going to go neon, but once it is blended it only picks up the light and makes ur skin look dewy in all the right places. . .i was amazed because i initially thought hmm i cant see what it does, untill i saw photos of me on a prior night out before i owned it, and then saw a later photo of my skin with it on and the difference is unmistakable, this is one of my staple products and is the perfect quick fix for lazy no makeup days haha. . x
This is such a lovely highlighter. I do think it's very overpriced, but I got mine cheap on ebay. Still, I probably would pay the full amount. I actually don't mind the applicator at all. I think it makes it easy to dot on the right amount, and not make yourself look ridiculous. I love to layer it under Armani Sheer Blush #2 (a blush I don't find impressive AT ALL on its own), which I hardly ever used before getting High Beam. The two together, though, make me look so sweet and angelic...Something I need makeup to fake ;)
I loved this stuff, but I hated the packaging. I'm a low maintenance girl who loves to glow for sure, but not with such a stupid applicator. booo.
BEST HIGHLIGHTER ON EARTH !!!
absolutely my HG.
i love to apply the blossom-fragranced, rosy-shimmery cream on my cheekbones and under the eyebrows.
definitely a must-have in every girls bag.
I LOVE this stuff!! I got it for christmas and it's sooo fun! you can put it on your cheek bones, and it makes your face glow. It will distract from any other flaws on your face...lol! I also put it on my browbones and the inner corners of my eyes to open them up. I also decided to try a little experiment and put it under my eyes to reflect the light, and SUPRISE, it actually worked! this stuff is so cute, I love it! Only problem is it's so expensive...wow.
My first thought: Waaaargh this is so expensive! But then I realised why. It looks SO good on, I use it under my brows and on my cheekbones, it just gives a sort of finishing touch to my make-up. It's a dewy pink colour and is complimentary to my skin tone. I like the little nail varnish bottle, it makes it easy to apply as you can just dot it on or put it in X's and rub in. But I honestly think the price is a bit of a rip off, but I love it so anyway.
I like High Beam, i like the pink dewy glow it gives me around my cheekbones. I don't use it every day, but now and again.
