Subtle highlighter for medium-dark skin!

By Kev

from Palm Springs, CA

About Me Natural Style

Pros

  • Blends Easily
  • Dark Skin Friendly
  • Easy To Apply
  • Looks Natural

Cons

  • Weird Applicator

Best Uses

  • Contouring & Highlighting
  • Faking A Tan
  • Hint of Color

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.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

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! I have been a benefit user for years this is my go to product.

      This color does not blend well at all, the color does not seem natural and the brush does not make it easy to apply. I'm in love with benefit cosmetics but this was not their best

              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!
