      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter:

      I wanted a product that could provide a subtle glow and also be used for strobing. I tend to shy away from shimmer on my face as I'm in my late 40's and although my skin is in very good condition (minimal lines and wrinkles) I was afraid of having shimmer settle where I didn't want it! Surprisingly this product stays in place and doesn't rub off on others (at least from my experience using light application). You can also easily adjust the amount of shimmer from very subtle to heavy by layering applications. Having that kind of control makes this product easy and fun to use. I apply it either on top of moisturizer and under foundation or on top of my foundation depending on the look I want. I really like this product and highly recommend it!

        I was looking for a gold-ish highlight for prom when one of the artist at Ulta recommened this to me and made me try it on and I was instantly in love!! It was just enough glow, but not too much and it lasted all night! I've also worn it just with my everyday makeup and it gives such a natural and sunkissed glow to the skin! This product is amazing!!

            I've been buying this stuff for years. I have a light-medium complexion with olive undertones, and this is the only highlighter that gives me a natural lit-from-within glow. You can wear it alone, over makeup, or even mixed with your regular foundation. It's not crazy gold or sparkly, when blended it looks like your own dewy skin. I'd definitely recommend!

            Great product overall, just make sure to blend well, apply in thin layers of you want it be very pigmented & be less is more. I'm still experimenting on different techniques but now I put a pea sized amount on my hand and use my finger to dab it on my nose, cheek bones, and forehead.

                I thought the color would be darker.

                My main complaint is the weird applicator - it's like a nail polish brush! I can't see how it can possibly be sanitary. I'd prefer a pump.
