    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

    I love mixing this product in with my foundation for an all over glow for a night out. It makes me look tanner and healthier. It also is a nice highlight but I prefer to mix it in with my foundation and then highlight on top of that. Is great for night out looks.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

      I wanted to love this but I have a golden olive skin tone and this just made me look oily. I think another skin tone would have better luck. Also it strips makeup where its applied so it should be used on a natural day

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

        this highlighter is perfect if you want a subtle bronzed glow. it definitely doesn't compare to the becca highlighters or abh kits, which are somewhat buildable, and it absolutely does not give you that reflective illuminated look. the more you build this on, the cakier and heavier it looks, though the right amount does look beautiful.

                this is awesome to add a bit of warm color in the wintertime on your cheeks and shoulders. but I buy this to use as light daytime contouring. It looks awesome because it is a highlighter but it works as both.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

                This highlighter is perfect for medium-deep skin with gold undertones. Although it's very subtle, it looks nice and shimmery, rather than glittery. The color does show through on lighter tones but blends in nicely with deeper, warm undertones.

                I have been a benefit user for years this is my go to product. I was extremely upset when I bought my last bottle after noticing they have reduced the size and are still charging the same amount. It is already a small bottle for the price. But they thought by adding some design to the lid it would take away from the fact that they have reduced the amount of ounces. This is a typical big corporation move. I am highly disappointed because Benefit Products are 90% of what I use and have for a long time. However, they have lost my loyalty and referrals over a few ounces. Greedy corporate America!
