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!

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.

My "go to" for a highlighter.
Purchased

I love this product. I've been using it for a couple of years now and like to use it on my cheekbones and just a tad over my cupid's bow (lip). It highlights without any sparkle, just a slight shimmer that lights up your face. I will always use this as my highlighter (until I find something better one day?).

Been using this product for 10+ years and still love it!

This product is a fabulous highlighter to use on your cheeks and brow bones. Sometimes I even mix it my lotion to add a little dewey shimmer. The best part is that a little goes a long way and this bottle will last you forever. I have been using this since high school and it is a tried and true favorite of mine.

Great!

This highlighter is a good choice for an 'everyday' look. It's pretty subtle, and gives a nice glow to the areas it's used. Really enjoy using this.

Makes highlighting easy!
Sampled

I never highlighted before but this slides on so smoothly, it's impossibly to mess up! I just do a line down my nose and two stripes above my cheek bones and blend it in. Subtle highlights that give you a carefree glow!
