        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

        I tried to apply the product as a highlighter on the highest points of my cheekbones, tip of nose and Cupid bow. But the product is a bit to messy for my liking, it also feels very wet & it is not very pigmented for a highlighter. It's VERY subtle. It doesn't blend very will into the skin. When it is blended into the skin, it dulls down the highlight. More like a Low-light.

        I will say, I tried mixing it into my foundation for a glowy look. And that was an amazing use for the product!

          It works well if you want just a little bronzed babe highlight but if you really want that Instagram worth shimmer I'd recommend a different product for you. However, it is lovely if you are going for the more natural look

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

          I searched this and the color looked like a gorgeous sun beam like advertised but when you put it on your face you really have to look for it. It's definitely not pigmented or shimmery enough to use as a highlighter. I actually just cover my face in it, as ridiculous as that sounds, and it gives me a good, very subtle glow. But unless you're interested in that I wouldn't recommend this as a highlighter.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

          I wore a similar Mac product years ago and I really liked it so I decided to try this one. I can't get it to be noticeable unless I pile it on which I hate doing because then it looks cakey. It doesn't seem to reflect light very much and it settles in creases really easily. I won't be buying it again.
