    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.

              I have used this product for years and i love it! I always get compliments on my makeup when I wear it. I wear it as a highlighter on my cheeks both day and night. I do makeup in the side and use it All the time of all sorts of skin tones and ages and it looks great on everyone. I've told several friends to purchase this product and they love it too!

                High beam gives you great highlights on your cheek bones. I am 69 and I think this gives a youthful glow to my skin.

                  Just a couple dots on the cheek and blend to create the most perfect natural glow! Applies with a nail polish like brush and leaves you looking flawless. A must buy and will purchase again!

                      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.

                    I use other illuminators - does this come in different shades? currently I use NARS and love it and I also have Becca in Opal.
