”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.
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've been using this product for almost a year now and I can say with confidence it's my favorite highlighter I own. It goes on smoothly and it sets nicely over top the rest of my makeup. I have very dry skin and this is the one highlighter that doesn't make my cheekbones look crusty. Only problem I have with this product is I wish they used a different applicator, this applicator reminds me of a paintbrush. In my opinion I feel a silicone applicator works best for this product.about 1 month ago
I really liked the high-beam highlighter, since it blended really easily on my skin by just using my fingers. It was easy to control how "blinding" the highlight would be. Though it wasn't as pink as i thought (more white for me), it still looked great on my pale skin.4 months ago
LOOOVE! this highligher is perfect for all skin tones. It has a subtle glow that you can build up. This can also be mixed with your foundation, tinted moisturizer, bb creams etc. If you want a glow from within. What I don't like about this product is the packaging. The brush is hard to use and it is hard to get the product out. (If it is almost finished)8 months ago
I dont know how Benefit does it but the formula of this is just amazing. I prefer powder highlighters to liquid, but I can actually use this one over powder. It just makes your cheeks look so glowy and youthful. I love the color of the highbeam even if I’m quite Morena.10 months ago
Love the formula of Benefit's high beam highlighter!!!! When I first tried this, I was so amazed as it gave me that natural glow I was looking for. If I were to pick a highend highlighter, this would definitely be it!!!! Truly love this highlighter! I suggest this to girls out there who wants to have that easy yet all-day stay glowabout 1 year ago
Honestly if it weren’t for the price tag, I’m sure that I would be using this highlighter everyday for school. It leaves such a healthy pink glow that not only do I look alive, I also feel it! I like that it doesn’t have glitters in its formula, so I can slowly build it up without looking too made up. At the end of the day, this highlighter still stays put! As it stands, I take this out when there are special occasions that I have to attend, such as birthday parties, and long day org events. If you have $$ to spend, put this highlighter in your cart, you won’t regret it!!about 1 year ago
Get them together to see the difference.
