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.

Lovely and subtle

I love this stuff, it goes on pretty thin so i apply a few coats to the area i want and then gently blend into my foundation to high light my cheek bones :)

Love the subtle pearl like glow of this product!
SampledPurchased

I love this product so much! It gives a very nice but subtle pearl like glow. Great for highlighting under the brow and cheek bones. I recently purchased the full sized product and can't wait for it to arrive!

FAV LIQUID HIGHLIGHT!

This is by far my favorite liquid highlighter, it looks wonderful on the cheeks, brow bone, cupid's bow.. anywhere you put it! It stays put and adds a luminous & gorgeous glow. Absolutely stunning product.

Weird Consistency
Sampled

I swear I read the instructions for this 100 times and it does not do what it says it will. I dabbed it onto my cheekbones thinking it would make them look all glowy and beautiful. Nope, it made it look like splotches of shine. Super awkward because it does not smooth in.

good product, lasts a long time

This is a nice highlighter that provides a nice glow. The bottle is small, but lasts a long time. The only negative is the applicator makes the bottle messy and needs to be cleaned often.

LOVE it!

This is such a pretty highlight! There are some days where I just simply want a dewy glow, so I'll put this all over my face under my foundation. Gorgeous!
