Birchbox Breakdown

We don’t know about you, but if we had three beauty wishes, we’d go for killer cheekbones, glowing skin, and great lighting wherever we went. Since our resident genie seems to have gone missing, we rely on wonderous products instead. A perpetual award winner, Benefit’s High Beam subtly highlights and enhances your features — a necessity when you want to draw a little extra attention.

How it Works

It’s all about the shimmer. This liquid illuminator comes in a soft pink hue that flatters all skintones. It softly reflects light for an instant spotlight effect, plus gives skin a dewy finish.

How to Use

Use your fingertips to paint a small amount on cheekbones, brow bones, and anywhere you want to add definition. Blend quickly. You can also mix a couple drops with your moisturizer or foundation for a dewy, radiant sheen.

Amazing!

This product gives me an amazing dewy look that I've been trying to get since I can remember. Sometimes if I'm not wearing make up, I'll put it in my suntan lotion for my face, and it will give my face such a brilliant shine. It really highlights my cheekbones! I would totally recommend it to a friend.

Subtle but effective

When you first put this on you might think you need to use more because you can't really see it - don't! It is subtle and a great highlighter. I use it daily.

love this stuff!

I wear this stuff every day over my blush and on my eyebrow arches. It's awesome, especially days when you want to brighten up your face a little bit without wearing a ton of makeup.

I wear it every day!

Not only do I wear it everyday, but people consistently comment on how healthy my skin looks. I say it's my genes (thanks Mom!) but I owe a lot to High Beam! I've got big eyes and am prone to gigantic bags under my eyes, and High Beam is like walking around with someone holding perfectly flattering lights on you at all times. It highlights the good stuff and blends in the icky stuff. It's not concealer, but makes whatever you're highlighting stand out without being too obvious. A little at the top of my cheeks/bottom of my eyes, a tad on my browbones and I look like a stinkin' model. I LOVE THIS STUFF.

Great highlighter

I use this on my brow bone to give me some definition! Just a little goes a long way. Dub and blend, and you're good! Great product!

Brightens your face instantly.

Love the packaging and fun name of this cosmetic. Easy to use, just a little sweep on your cheeks and you have instant cheekbones. Use it anywhere that you want to highlight. Lasts for awhile. Color is really complementary.

Highlight

Been using this product for years. Works well to high light areas that I want to contour under or just give a pop of light to. Especially the brow bone and cheek bones.

Excellent product

My favorite thing to use as blush. Super easy and stays on for a long time. The shimmer looks good but isn't as heavy as a bronzer, so it is good for lighter, fair skin.

Love this

I find liquid highlighters the easiest to use, and this one is by far my favorite. Goes on smoothly and lasts all day without getting glitter everywhere!

SO Pretty

Whenever I feel very blah, I throw this on my cheek bones and under my eyebrows. I look fresh and awake. It looks so pretty with the dewy look it creates. Very subtle but makes me look alive and not blah
