        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.
          This products lasts a long time as you do not need much of it.

                I was first introduced to this highlighter with Bella Bamba blush. Very attractive but poor value for how much product you actually get.I can't recommend this to those for those that are acne-prone. Watts-up is a better option I found.

                  I use this instead of foundation. It's so natural and brightening all at the same time.

                  I use this product as a highlighter on my cheeks, the bridge of my nose, and cupids bow. I like how it really does highlight those areas, however I'm not sure I like the pearly shimmer, and since I have dry skin it looks caked on sometimes.

                    I dont wear foundation, so i put a small amount of this product on my finger tips and gently pat it on my skin and over my blush, as well as my chin and forehead.
                    The dispenser is well designed; i can control thenamount to use thus not a lot of waste.
                    It has a pleasant fragrance and the warm glow is very attractive. You dont have ro use a lot ot get the desired desy effecf.
                    I cant think of a negative point. Maybe it could ve more moist?

                      I don't like the look or feel of foundation but appreciate a little evenness and glow and this is the perfect product for that. I combine it with a small amount of Too-Faced BB cream when I'm going out at night and use it by itself during the day.

                      Maybe it's because I prefer a powder illuminator but I really felt like this did nothing for me.

                      • 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.
