Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam:

I put this highlight on the bridge of my nose, my chin, cupids bow, and on the peaks of my cheeks. I was a but worried that the liquid would be unsuccessful and not what I was looking for. But now I see that it subtly adds highlight without looking too done up or obvious that you're wearing makeup. I'm very happy with it.

        High beam creates a beautiful and natural looking glow. It is a natural shimmer, rather than sparkly and glittery.

          I think this product is great for those just learning to contour and those who haven't got the hang of it, it gives skin a dewey morning glow without half of the work of all the powders.

              I generally like the benefit line but found this product to get kinda clumpy and not really make a difference. It's a lot of money for a product I don't love.

              I love this stuff! I got a little tiny bottle in my Feeling Dandy kit , and have almost used it up about two years later (I'm super late reviewing this haha). I personally don't like the brush you're supposed to apply it with, so I just brush a little bit onto a clean finger and pat it onto cheekbones, brow bones, inner corners, cupid's bow, tip of nose, you name it. It's a one product wonder, and although I do own other highlighters, I really don't need to. This is my ultimate. Gave it four stars because it dries really quickly and is difficult to blend after it dries. It does last a long time on my very oily skin though, so it's worth it to me!

                    • Q:

                      I have light/medium skin and am really interested in trying a highlighter for summer. Would high beam look natural with my skin tone or should I try sun beam instead? My friend was wearing benefit highlighter and it looked great, I'd love to get some.

                        Hi gorgeous!

                        If you're looking for a liquid highlighter, I recommend trying high beam. It's a satin-pink liquid that will look more natural on your skin than sun beam (a golden-bronze liquid). High beam is ideal for accenting your cheek & brow bones...it's a supermodel in a bottle!

                        Hi gorgeous!

                        We recommend using a foundation or blush brush to apply our tints and beams! Dab a small amount of product onto your face and quickly blend with either brush :)

                        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.

                        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.
