    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

    I've been buying this stuff for years. I have a light-medium complexion with olive undertones, and this is the only highlighter that gives me a natural lit-from-within glow. You can wear it alone, over makeup, or even mixed with your regular foundation. It's not crazy gold or sparkly, when blended it looks like your own dewy skin. I'd definitely recommend!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

    Great product overall, just make sure to blend well, apply in thin layers of you want it be very pigmented & be less is more. I'm still experimenting on different techniques but now I put a pea sized amount on my hand and use my finger to dab it on my nose, cheek bones, and forehead.

        I thought the color would be darker.

        My main complaint is the weird applicator - it's like a nail polish brush! I can't see how it can possibly be sanitary. I'd prefer a pump.

          Hmmm I'm not sure. I bought this to try striving and was disappointed to find out how a shy the gold was. If it were a bit truer of a gold if prob like it more.

          Not what I expected

          By Dria

          from Bethlehem, PA

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

          Benefit's high beam is such an intense liquid highlight but having medium skin the pink undertones don't match me well so I decided to go with this one. Compared to high beam it is much more subtle which is fine for someone that doesn't like an intense highlight, unlike me. I find the applicator kind of hard to use and it can get messy. Overall I was kind of disappointed with this product and was expecting a way different glow then what it gives off.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

          I'm not into the contouring makeup it's not for me but with this I just put a few dabs on my cheekbone down the bridge of my nose my chin and right above my cupids bow on my lip and it's perfect amount of highlight and glow for everyday wear with the time consuming contouring
