Birchbox Breakdown

Hunching in front of our laptop screens and working until the wee hours of the morning is not, it turns out, a recipe for glowing skin. However, this face highlighter from Benefit could fool anyone who’s unfamiliar with our sleep habits. The creamy formula creates a soft-focus, healthy champagne glow on cheeks and brow bones. A few swipes and behold: You’re the proud owner of a gleaming complexion.

How it Works

The cream-to-powder formula glides on smoothly to light up your facial features and dries to a natural finish. To help you soften and perfect the look, the applicator comes equipped with a blending sponge.

How to Use

Glide the formula onto cheeks and brow bones, blending with the attached sponge. Apply solo or over your makeup.

Brightens everything up!

I just had a baby a few months ago which means I am hardly sleeping. This helped brighten up my whole face and make me look more awake then I actually am!

Nice effect, but smears off easily
Sampled

This product does provide a nice shimmer wherever you place it, but it must be placed very carefully and you must not ever brush a hand or anything across it or the effect will smear away. I've tried it on both brow bones and cheeks, and the same thing happens. It's just a very delicate substance that wipes away too easily.

Perfect highlighter for summer
Sampled

I absolutely love this product. Of course I'm a little biased because I already have such a positive view of Benefit products and know that they are high quality.

I love highlighter products and I usually go with a lighter champagne or pink color (like Benefit High Beam) but this slightly darker golden color will be great as my skin gets tanner for summer.

This is my favorite product from Birch Box so far.

A solid highlighter

I love this highlighter. I usually add it under a powder, on top of my foundation to make it a little less shiny but the lightness still comes through.

Brighten up your Day!
Sampled

I have gotten this stuff from Sephora before. It really does accentuate your cheek bones, I usually put it there and it will give you that dewy fresh look. Sometimes, I don't know if I just went a little overboard, but when I saw myself in pictures it made me look very white and very shiny, almost plastic. I think it is one of those things you have to be cautious about how much you use because it doesn't seem like you are putting a lot on but a little really goes longer than you think!

Great Highlighter
Sampled

I have used lighter concealers in the past to highlight, so I was excited to actually receive a product specifically made for that purpose. I like the highlighter and it is pretty, but there is a shimmer in the product that isn't versatile for every style of makeup. I like a matte finish, so I use it a little more sparingly or I feel like I'm too shiny.
