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.

Shine bright like a diamond

I don't usually use highlighters, they are too technically tricky for me to apply, but I DO use them as eye shadow. This is a very easy to apply, highlighter that makes my eye area light up. Smooth, not cakey, I really like it.

Will I use it as a facial highlighter? Probably not. But it works great in my eye make up routine.

Interesting product.

I found this works well on my brow bone and really helps to make my eyes pop. Perhaps I am blending it too much on my cheek, but I am not getting that nice dewy look that they talk about.

Its okay

This product was okay. Nothing extremely special. I have a very fair complexion, so the shimmer was very subtle and didn't really do much. Probably wouldn't use for a daily beauty routine.

Good cream highlighter
Sampled

This is a good hightlighter, but beware that less is more with this product. Only dot a little on and rub it around to sheer it out. It lasts forever too.

Love the brand

It was a different product from a brand I loved. I like the darker shades but this color worked perfectly for summer.
