Birchbox Breakdown

Hunching in front of our laptop screens and working until the wee hours of the morning is not, it turns out, a recipe for glowing skin. However, this face highlighter from Benefit could fool anyone who’s unfamiliar with our sleep habits. The creamy formula creates a soft-focus, healthy champagne glow on cheeks and brow bones. A few swipes and behold: You’re the proud owner of a gleaming complexion.

How it Works

The cream-to-powder formula glides on smoothly to light up your facial features and dries to a natural finish. To help you soften and perfect the look, the applicator comes equipped with a blending sponge.

How to Use

Glide the formula onto cheeks and brow bones, blending with the attached sponge. Apply solo or over your makeup.

Love the glow!
Purchased

I started with a sample, which was great, but I wanted more! The full-sized product has a much larger stick that covers a bigger area. This is one item that has been added into my daily makeup routine! The only complaint, is that I don't know why they added a sponge. It is a waste of space and added cost that is not necessary.

This is a must have

I love this for tired eyes. It helps to brighten and is super lightweight. It does not give you a cakes on look and all you need is a little swipe!

Best Highlighter Ever

I got a small sample probably about 9 months ago in my monthly box. i just now reached the end of it. I use it everyday. a swipe on each cheekbone and down my nose and then i lightly blend. It gives the perfect dewy look and you never have to worry about it being too light or too dark for the season (tan skin or not). I have pretty fair skin but my best friend has this beautiful chocolate skin and it worked PERFECT on her too! pretty sure this would work for any skin tone.

this is a must have for me.

Love the Gleam

I use it after applying blush. The Benefit Watt's Up! shine detracts from seeing my baggy eyelids and crows feet. Sometimes I use it as eyeshadow.

pick me up

dabbing on the inside and outside of the eyes and a bit on the cheeks leaves a dewy look that I cant live without. even when I'm feeling tired, this adds the perfect amount of shimmer that lasts

Wonderful for Brightening Up Dark Circle

I'm a college student, so sleep isn't always a top priority. I first received a sample of this product, and I love it! The shimmer is nice for reflecting the light off of your face, and it masks dark circles nicely. Additionally, a little goes a long way! I'm normally not a fan of shimmer, so I tend to rub it in quite a bit - so that it's still there, but not in-your-face there. I recommend this product.

i dig it

I got this as a birthday gift from Sephora and I really like it! It doesn't make your face shiny and is good for covering up discoloration and blemishes. I really like that it feels like I'm using a crayon on my face.
