”Love that it’s: “brightening, matte, blendable, Natural””
”I am not a fan of wearing glitter/shimmer on a day to day basis. I have combination/oily skin so prefer to wear matte products. I have been looking for a good highlighter to wear daily for a while now so I was very happy to see this products coming out. It is the perfect brightening highlighter for my cheeks, nose and under my eyes. I apply it to the high points of my face and in a triangle under my eyes and then pat it in with my Real Techniques sponge. It really is a wonderful product.”

Founded by successful models-turned-makeup artists Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit was built on the premise that “makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good.” For the twin Fords, laughter was always the best cosmetic, a belief they infused into each of their products from the get-go. Just check out the quirky packaging and cheeky labels that accompany Benefit’s beauty boosters and you’ll get the drift! Today, the mega-brand is known for its insta-pretty solutions and ever-playful approach to beauty.
I wasn't really a fan of highlighters till I found this! I love its matte nude pink color which really helps on my skin tone to pop out. It brightens and highlights your face without actually giving you the shimmers! As an oily skin type, I never liked highlighters with the glitters/shimmers in it. It only makes my skin more shiny as the day goes by. The product is kind of expensive but for me its totally worth it! I really thank Benefit for making this AMAZING highlighter!5 months ago
While writing for my reviews on other Benefit products, the most common issue I always point out is how these products are way too expensive for me (that's just me, while the others might find this affordable for them). That being said, my sister still chooses this brand (you do you, darling!) and so I was able to try this nude pink highlighter of hers. I love its natural-looking semi-matte finish (which looks more dewy on my oily skin) but it doesn't really give you that "glow" per se. Looks like this product would work well on girls with cool undertones since it did not complement my warm undertone skin that much.7 months ago
