For a more rosy illuminator, try Benefit’s equally enchanting High Beam, which has the same sheer blendability in a slightly pinker tone.

Birchbox Breakdown

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but we think pearls are much more flattering. This gleaming liquid highlighter goes on sheer to give skin a soft, ethereal sheen. Plus, the twist-up applicator is truly foolproof.

How it Works

Packed with opalescent pigments, this pinky gold highlighter blends in like a dream. Beyond the pretty glow, it’s also good for our skin—the chamomile and sweet almond seed extracts smooth and tighten. The sweet raspberry scent is a nice bonus.

How to Use

Dab on the apples of your cheeks, your jawline, and anywhere the mood strikes. Rub in to blend. Wear alone or layer on top of makeup.

Can't do without
Purchased

I love this highlighter. Loved it when it arrived in my Birchbox and love it now in its full size. My skin has a radiant sheen when I use it, and I love to apply it on top of my BB cream. My skin just looks healthier and I look shinier, which I love.

Can't say enough good things. It's perfect - not too shimmery, just enough to give you a glow wherever you apply it. And the application is easy. You twist so that some pushes up the tiny holes - so you don't waste a bunch because too much comes up.

Lovely Shimmer

I like how this cream is so light and has just a hint of color. It is perfect for wearing to outdoor summer gatherings, or any time when you just need a little bit of shimmer.

Too much pearl?

I love everything about this product but realize it's too pearlescent for my light skinned face. It ends up making me look like Edward Cullen even when applied over my blush.
I do love using it as a highlighter under my brows and have learned to go a bit more easy on it than I originally was doing.
After reading the note on BirchBox's site, I think I will go with High Beam for a more pink glow next time around.

Nice highlighter

I use this as a highlighter on my cheekbones and brow bones every day. I think that it gives a nice glow on these areas. I also have noticed that you can use just a little of the product and still get the effect.

Very nice product

I like the way it feels against my skin, it gives just right amount of illumination and glow. It is not too pink.

Great Product!

This product surprised me a lot! I love Benefit products so I knew I would like this! I used this when I do my makeup fully for special events. It really gives your cheeks a shine like no other. I love putting it on my cheeks when I done with my makeup as a shine/shimmer.
