        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

        I had a product sample since I didn't want to spend that much on a little bottle of this product. Color is quite beautiful, however it is not the easiest product to apply. I am someone who enjoys ease of application, but for this product you have to blend it very well or else it just looks not blended. I still use it when I do want that nice highlight though. After using a good amount of the product, it's impossible to get the product off from the bottom of the bottle. They should really change the packaging since there is just a lot of product wasted! Even the brush just soaks up a lot of product that could be used instead of just sitting there on the brush.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

          Love this, it looks gorgeous when applied on cheekbones, bridge of nose, or Cupid's bow. Looks super natural not glittery like others. Looks good alone or with makeup. Gives you that dewy, just got a facial look.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

          Great product, looks beautiful and I trust the lasting power of the liquid/creamy texture. Complaints are that you CANNOT apply with a brush or sponge, fingers only, or it get's clumpy and patchy. Also, I have to limit my foundation and powder because if there's too much the clumpy and patchy circumstances apply again. In conclusion, it's AMAZING if you use it right!

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

              This is one of the best highlighters out there and the packaging is adorable and super effective, being that this is a liquid. I just dot it or sweep it across the top of my cheekbones (depending on how much shine I'm looking to achieve), and then blend it with a powder brush. The color will last all night and the actual product will last for months, maybe even more than a year depending on how often you use it. Works great with Benefit's Ooh La Lift undereye brightener.

                  Apply over your foundation for best results. Dot and blend over makeup on to cheek and brow bones, or anywhere you want a glance to linger.

                Could you please tell me the difference between High Beam and Sun Beam. Thank You

                  A:

                  Sun Beam features a luminous bronze tint, while High Beam features a light pearly pink tint. High Beam is ideal to use as a highlighter, while Sun Beam is ideal to use as a bronzer. Either one can be mixed into your moisturizer or foundation to add a tinted glow.
