    This product will make your skin look glowing, sexy, beautiful. I mix it with my foundation for a natural healthy look or I wear it on my cheeks for that just left the gym blush. You will love it, trust me!

    not my fav

    By Meredith

    from Missouri

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl:

    This product really does work in terms of highlighting, but it is difficult to use. Because it is a liquid you can't put it on after any type of powder or it will make your face look cakey, and you can't put it under powder because you won't be able to see it. I would rather just use a powder to highlight. It's a lot easer and looks a lot better too.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl:

      This is a nice highlighter. I adore the packaging and the cutesy names. However this is NOT a highlighter for those looking for a dramatic sheen. This hardly makes any difference, even when used all over the face. I like the smell, it smells like sweet grapefruits and raspberry. But there are better highlighters like high beam and watts up. I wanted to love this.

        I am 78 years old and use this product every day. I only use a dab of blush and a dab of highlighter and then blend "Girl Meets Pearl" over my entire face. It gives my skin a natural, dewy glow and strangers constantly compliment my "beautiful" skin and inquire about the products I use.

        I use it as a primer under my eyes, out to my cheek bones, as well as above and below my mouth. It really covers well although a powder is needed over my foundaton to help matte out the shine.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl:

                I got a mini Girl Meets Pearl in a kit & I like the dewy glow this product gives when I mix it with my foundation & it seems to brighten my face a little when I use it, however, I have to use a TON of it to get that pearly glow effect (even more of it than foundation), & even then it is still very, very subtle. I have also tried it over my foundation with same result. I have not tried it as a spot highlighter because I have High Beam for that. I do love how silky & smooth the formula is & how it feels when I apply & it does a nice scent. Overall, I do like this product but it just didn't wow me enough to purchase a full size.

                  Can be hard to apply over other makeup because it is hard to blend.

                      A:

                      Sun Beam is a golden bronze hue that works wonderfully as a bronzer to apply to cheeks and brow bones, while Girl Meets Pearl is a golden pink hue that works wonderfully for all over application as a luminizer.

                  • Q:

                    Love Benefit, and was wondering how Girl Meets Pearl differs from high beam? As I have not used Girl Meets Pearl, but I do own high
                    beam, and the description sounds very similar. Also, I am not ashamed to say mine is now the watered down version because it pains me so to see it go. I appreciate whatever time and consideration given to my inquiry. BENEFIT BUMPS!!!

                      A:

                      Girl Meets Pearl features a golden pink hue, while High Beam features a light pink hue. Girl Meets Pearl can be used all over the face as a luminizer for an all over glow, while High Beam is best used as a highlighter to accent cheekbones and brow bones.
