Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

I love this product but it does not last long. It is also a little difficult to apply because its in a bottle that has a nail polish brush in it. The glow is very natural and subtle. It really makes your face look more awake. I would suggest using face primer before and a setter after.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

    I use this on the apple of my cheeks and it makes my face glow. Every time I wear this I get complimented that I am glowing. I love this product. In fact, there isn't a product of Benefit's that I haven't liked. :)

    Very Pretty

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

          I got a mini High Beam in a Benefit kit & I really like it. I use it to highlight my cheeks, chin & cupid's bow & it looks really nice. It has an applicator similar to nail polish & it's really easy to blend. However, I would not purchase a full size of this because e.l.f Cosmetics Shimmering Facial Whip is almost exactly the same as High Beam & it is only $1. The only difference is that one is lightly scented, no applicator, & comes in four shades. So it is definitely the cheaper alternative. But if you don't mind the price then I recommend High Beam (it is slightly easier to appy & to blend), you will love it.

              I was looking for a highlighter to get a dewy look and read about this. I bought it and was not impressed. Was pretty thick in the bottle. I decided to return it and try a pressed highligher (from It Cosmetics) and like that much better.

                      This is a great highlighter with easy application, and is pretty long lasting. I'd definitely recommend it, but ELF's Shimmering Facial Whip is way less expensive for virtually the same product (ELF's has a slight purple tint, which Benefit eliminated).

                              I just started learning about highlighting and contouring and High Beam is the best product I've found!! It works great with my fair skin tone and I have received so many compliments on my skin since I started using it. I really, really love High Beam!!

                                This creates a very natural highlight, but I would not recommend for anyone who really likes highlighters. It's more of my highlight for days I'm just wearing bbcream. It is smooth but it does not sit well under or over any type of powder, so I only recommend to those who use liquids only.

                                    Benefit Cosmetics does not claim or test for the noncomedogenicity of their products at this time.
