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.

Great for a minimal look
Purchased

I don't wear blush and I never have. This product gives me a bit of color with a dewy finish that I really like. I didn't use it much in the winter because I feel that it doesn't look as good on very pale skin...but when I have a bit of a tan it really adds a nice sunkissed look.

Doesn't last long

This product gives great sheen upon application but the shimmer seemed to fade not too long after. I can only equate it to when foundation oxidizes on skin a bit into wearing it; this seemed to "oxidize" and the sheen disappears. Watt's Up offers similar results and has great lasting power!

Great Product!

This is a great product I pull out for dates and special occasions like weddings and parties etc. Due to my schedule, I essentially stick to the basics with my morning makeup routine. However, whenever I have a bit more time to get ready and when I am going for a full-face look and glow, this is one of the products I reach for.

Love Benefit!

This is one of my all-time favorite BirchBox products that I've received. I would highly recommend it. Gives a soft shine that looks natural and sunkissed

Love!

I'm a make up minimalist... I don't wear a lot-- however, this product is a must for me. Easy to apply, give a quick pick me up in all highlighting areas! Worth the price.

Too pink

This stuff is nice and works to counteract my underlying yellow skin tones, but there's something about it that's just a little bit too pink for my (very fair) skin. The twist-up applicator is way better than most.

I'll give it a few tries

Highlighter is something I typically don't use, mainly because I haven't really learned how. However, I felt this was subtle and safe enough to try without having to do my makeup all over again. I did like the nice glow it gave me on my face, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it even more once I get the hang of it.
