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.

Buildable, Dewy skin!
Sampled

This highlighter s great!! It is very thin and a little goes a long way. It blends easily and creates a dewy effect when used lightly and strategically on cheekbones, etc. or can be layered nicely for a more dramatic effect on brow bones, cheekbones, etc. Also brightens up the eyes when used very lightly underneath or in the corners near the bridge of your nose. Love it for a fresh summer look!

great highlighter

This product gives my skin a dewy glow. The creme formula is not drying. The effect is subtle and a little product goes a long way so it is a good buy!

A great highlighter!

I never use High Beam on its own; I always use it to highlight existing blush. Not oily or pore clogging, just light and nice.

Love Benefit High Beam
Sampled

I love this product! I love that I can apply it over my finishing powders and it doesn't smudge everything. Leaves me with a pretty glow. I also like that there is no strange scent. It also works great on eyelids as a primer!

This product works great if you are looking to put a settle glow to the apples of your cheeks. A little goes a long way and the packaging is super cute!

I loved this product. I had never heard of the brand or product before receiving it in my Birchbox, but I would definitely consider buying a full size version in the future.
