Benefit makes great products, Period. This highlighter, High Beam is a nice product to use on your cupid's bow and a few other places if you're simply looking to enhance/accent certain features. High Beam is a rich pigment which is supposed to create a more subtle impact/accent where you decide to place the product.. Best results are achieved with a light hand and High Beam is full potential can be seen on the face and any other area's you might find it useful.. I'd suggest always beginning with a small amount and work the product where you'd like to to see it..Less is more and with everything in life, you GET what you pay for! The ladies at Benefit are two wonderful sister's who are living their dream playing in cosmetics everyday! What a dream :)
I will forever rave about this product. It is absolutely AMAZING. I love it for a variety of skintones but on a few of my friends who have a much darker skintone than I, I found that Moon Beam worked better for them. This product is definitely worth its price and a little goes SUCH a long way!
this was way too cool toned for me and also a pain to blend. i tried blending it over foundation and it didnt work at all, it seemed to dry quickly almost? i'm not a fan
i dont love this product it may just be my application but i find that it moves the foundation underneath it. but other an that i dont hate it works well with tinted moisurises and last long enough, i dont love it on everyone i have very pail skin so the pink works well but my mum is only a few shades daker than me and it isnt that flattering on her although it may just be her age that it doesnt like (sorry mum) but i found that this product works best with younger more even skin tones xoxo kiwi
Benefit's High Beam is an interesting product. I love it on other people, and at times it looks too pale for me. I kind of like that plasticy look it leaves on me. It sounds weird, but it makes me cheeks look fuller.
It is super pale though. I've also like this as an eyeshadow. I just put a little on my lids for a bit of glow, but it does crease so be careful. This usually happens if I'm being lazy. I do like the shimmer effect it gives though.
Love this product!
I love this as a highlighter on my cheekbones! It really enhances them and isn't too shimmery which is the usual downfall for a lot of highlighters. Since I have pink undertones in my skin, this complements my skin perfectly. Also, even though it's kind of expensive, it's lasted me forever! (:
Everyone seems to love this product. It's really hard to blend in my skin, especially over liquid foundation. Also, it has a lot of pink in it, which I don't like in a highlight. I feel like it makes my face look more red. Also the back of it says it only lasts for 6 months which I could never get though that whole bottle in 6 months, for $30 I feel like it was a waste. I would not recommend this product. I rather use a MSF. I think this product could be really good for someone who doesn't mind spending a little more time to blend this and doesn't mind the pinkish color :)
I love this product. It creates a beautiful light pink shimmer on my face and really completes my makeup for the day. I use it on my brow bones and on my cheek bones and gives me a nice glow.

I was a little disappointed when I tried this one out. It was a little more shimmery rather than a light sheen which is what I was expecting. It was also a bit too much with my skin that leans toward being oily. The product itself is good just not for me.
The only highlighter you'll ever need!
Although one should be careful whilst applying this highly pigmented product, it's so easy to apply you can't really make a mistake. It gives you that "I'm awake!" glow and shows up wonderfully on camera. Use it with a light hand so as not to pull your foundation off, though, as I find it can attach itself to your makeup very quickly. I find it is too shimmery for use on the brow bone, but love it as a cheekbone and cupid's bow highlight.
It's expensive but I swear just doesn't run out! Well worth the money.
