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.

I loved this product, but unfortunately I felt like it was way too light for my skin color. I'd definitely purchase this in a different shade!

amazing bone raising highlighter. It gives enough shine without looming silver or glittery. Natural highlight with easy application. I have the bronze, but now i think this is the Must have.

Soft Focus Shimmer
Sampled

I'm a big fan of illumiating and highlighting products for my face. High Beam from Benefit is in my opinion fool proof. The soft shimmery formula blends well and can be used all over the face. It's not oily or drying and it doesn't feel heavy or leave your face feeling sticky. I typically use it to highlight my cheekbones and as a nice eye brightener (in the inner corners) for the mornings to look refreshed and wide awake.
