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.

Highlighter for your face!

I had never really used a highlighter/tinted glow product before but this is so subtle and nice, I love it! Benefit is always amazing but this just furthers my love for their products.

Benefit high beam
Sampled

I've owned this product in the past. Wouldn't recommend it for someone with oily skin. Creates a bit of shine. Works well as a high lighter around the upper cheeks and highs.

Great Highlighter
Sampled

Applies easily, does a great job reflecting light. Looked good in photos too. It didn't feel cakey either.

Add a little shimmer
Sampled

Really nice product; adds a little shimmer/glow...would be especially great at night when lighting is soft and low. For me personally, this was a bit too unnatural looking for me during the day, but I don't usually wear much makeup.

For bright eyes
Sampled

I love doing a smokey eye and using this on the outer edges gives a bright eyed and awake look. It also stayed on all day!

Beautiful Highlighter

This highlighter goes on beautifully. I was a little worried that it would be too much but it gave a very nice, natural, subtle glow.

Dazzle in your skin!

Wow wow wow! This product is amazing. I usually don't wear a highlighter...but now it will definitely be staple in my beauty routine. I have to say this product makes my skin look so youthful and fresh.

Wonderful!

This is a great product but I have several others that do the same thing. This didn't really standout from the others. The texture is nice too.
