”Love that it’s: “Subtle and beautiful.””
”Great for adding a little light to a no make-up/natural make-up look. For those who say it doesn’t blend well, or removes foundation/blush when applied: Firstly, don’t try to wear it over powder and/or a powder blush. It’s a slightly creamy, liquid highlighter; so, should only be worn with other liquids/creams. Secondly, the way to apply it (as a highlighter) is to dot it, in several small dots, on the very tops of your cheekbones and anywhere else the light naturally hits your face. Then, pat it gently, with your ring finger, to blend. Don’t apply it in a stripe, as it will be far too much and don’t blend it by swiping, as it will streak and/or remove any foundation/blush. I would also like to see a cream version, maybe in a stick?”

”Love that it’s: “So versatile””
”I have been using this product since I first started wearing makeup and have tried many other highlighters since, but nothing compares to High Beam. It’s so versitile and great for if you’d like a blinding Kardashian highlight, but also if you’d like an ethereal radiance- I love mixing this with a BB cream to achieve a fresh and from within glow. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone and everyone due to how well it compliment all skin tones.”

Start fresh faced or dolled up and apply dots where you want to add radiance—cheekbones, brow bones, forehead, cupid’s bow—then blend. Add soft definition to your nose with a bit of High Beam on your bridge.

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.
Despite the reviews online, this product somehow did not do well. I don’t like highlighters with noticeable shimmer pieces when applied in the skin. It lasts pretty good but it some how clumps especially if the skin starts to oil up. Moreover, it is pricey. A bottle may last for months but this is not my HG highlighter.about 1 month ago
I use highlighters on a daily basis just to give myself a bit of glow since I'm always looking dull due to the amount of school work that I go through on a daily basis. This is the first ever highlighter I've used and it's so great to use!! I only put three small dots on each side of my face and I'm already glowing and popping! Just a few drops already brighten up my face! It's also extremely easy to use and such a great pinkish undertone colour. It stays all day as well!5 months ago
Honestly haven't used a lot of liquid highlighters, but this one is the best one yet! Love the packaging and all, but its formula is what really gets me! It applies very smoothly to the skin and it sort of has a silky and creamy texture so it doesn't drip all over my face unlike other liquid highlighters. Perfect for creating a natural glow (but you can also build it up if u like)! :)6 months ago
This highlighter does its job, it gives me a nice glow. This highlighter is also buildable so you can create a subtle glow and a blinding glow with this. You can also top a powder highlighter over this product. However, I feel like there is nothing really special with this highlighter. I have another liquid highlighter like this but it gives almost the same effect. That said, I think I will not repurchase this because I already found the perfect dupe for this product.7 months ago
I am so sad to say that this didn't work on me AT ALL. I put a lot of product and it didn't look like a highlight, more like a white thing that, even if spread and blended, didn't look flattering. The consistency is also a little strange in that it clumps together a lot and just doesn't spread all that well. I really wanted to like this because it had a nice pearlescent pink tone to it. It might work better on morenas, maybe?9 months ago
When I hosted an event, my friend made me borrow this highlighter, and wow, it made my skin look so dewy and healthy! This is the first highlighter I have ever tried, and im so happy with my experience! It is definitely worth the price because it looks so natural on my light skin. I would definitely buy this soon!9 months ago
