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.

Water, Propylane Glycol, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Mica, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Lanolate, Stearic Acid, Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, Polysorbate 60, Cetyl Alcohol, Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Oil, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Corn (Zea Mays) Starch, Triethanolamine, Talc, Oleth-20, Iron Oxides, Lanolin Wax, Simethicone, Sorbitan Stearate, Cellulose Gum, Methylparaben Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben, BHA.

works great

I've never used a highlighter before.e This product was AMAZING! It was easy to put on and made my eyes pop. It got rid of that tired look, even after 8 hours under fluorescent lights.

Very pigmented

This is a great formula for anyone that likes their cream highlighters. I personally don't like creams, but this one is pretty good. You do have to be light handed though, since a little goes a long way!

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!

Looks unexpectedly good!

With my skin tone I try to stay away from things bright pink so I was not sure how it would look when I tried this product but it blends well and definitely did what it was supposed to, plus the applicator is great since I am still on basics in regards to makeup.

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.
