    Perfect highlight for a natural look, but you can also build it up for a more glam and intense shine. Blends out great with a beauty blender or your fingers.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:

    When I ran out of my Nars The Multiple stick in Copacabana, I decided I wanted a highlighter that was just as pearly beautiful but without the $40 price tag. As a fan of all things Benefit, naturally I gravitated toward High Beam, and it's...just ok. I'm underwhelmed daily when I apply this highlighter but feel bad throwing it out prior to using most of it. The main problem for me is that it barely shows up on my pale skin. I have to put a lot on for it to approach the kind of coverage Copacabana gave me, and it doesn't appear to have quite the staying power that the beloved Nars stick did, either. For this reason, I ran out of High Beam twice as fast as I ran out of Copacabana, and might have just as well spent a little extra money for the latter. The other complaint is the package design. I have maybe 1/3 to 1/4 remaining in the bottle, but because of the width of the bottle and length of the applicator brush, the brush isn't reaching the bottom where the last of the product is pooled up. Benefit should fix this by either making the bottle taller and narrower (more similar to a tube of lip gloss) or using an eye dropper lid like some other brands of liquid highlighter do. Sure, I could use one of my own skinny makeup brushes to try and get the last of the product out of the bottle, but I'm kind of done with High Beam at this point. Maybe I'll go back to Nars, or maybe I'll give Fenty Beauty's Match Stix highlighter a try.

    I lightly put the highliter on my skin and use a small beauty blender to spread it. Works pretty well for liquid but sometimes I have a problem getting it exactly where I want it

        I used this both daily and for special occasions. When layered, it is a beautiful sheen, otherwise is a natural looking glow. Definitely will be repurchasing when I am out!

        :(

        By ...

        from Fresno

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:

        This is a beautiful color, but it's so streaky. It is very hard to blend in and doesn't last long. This breaks down my make up and I look gross by the end of the day.

        Good base to add a powder highlighter on top

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:

        I love this highlighter! I put it on the top of my cheek bones and dab with a damp beauty blender and usually put Becca highlighter in Moonstone on top and it's blinding!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter:

          This is a good highlighter - not great, but not bad either. It looks like nail polish and kinda smells like chemicals but it's a nice highlighter and seems like it'll last long. Not a super blinding highlight - more natural-looking. Easy to apply, only need to put a few dots and blend in. Overall, probably not one of my favorites but still does the job.
