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!

The perfect highlighter!

I love this stuff! I use it almost daily as a highlighter on my brow bones and cheek bones. It gives a subtle, dewy glow that is just irresistible. It doesn't take much product either, just a few dabs, so it lasts a long time!

Pretty good!

I love Benefit products! I have never used high beam from them before. The sample was a great size because it allowed for multiple tries. However I didn't find myself using it as often as I could have. I think I may have been applying it wrong or I am too pale but I did not notice a great deal of difference when using it. Hopefully a few more tries will convince me!

Meh...

I was really looking forward to this, and maybe that was why it let me down a little. It does add a verrry subtle glow, but most days I cannot tell any difference later on whether or not I remembered to put it on.

Natural subtle shimmer; hard to blend
Sampled

I really like the natural shimmer that this gives with no obvious sparkly pieces or color. However, I have tried multiple ways to apply it along cheekbones and it absorbs so fast that it's hard to blend it out.

A favorite

This was one of my first highlighters. It is a beautiful, pearly pink. It is bright, so if you love a strong highlight she is a great choice.
