If we had three beauty wishes, we’d go for killer cheekbones, glowing skin, and a professional lighting crew wherever we went. Since not all daydreams end happily ever after, we rely on this wondrous product instead. A beauty editor fave, Benefit’s Sun Beam is a golden bronze highlighter that subtly defines and contours your features.
I need to review because I'm such a devotee of SunBeam. I blend this into my cheekbones, under my brow, and down the center of my face. It looks luminous, but in such a natural way. The best way I can describe the effect is like this: you know those pictures someone snaps of you outside and you just look healthy and flawless, like a Freepeople model or something? You can work with filters or whatever to achieve that glow, OR you could use SunBeam. It makes you look perfectly sunkissed in all types of lighting. It's weightless, and so worth the extra time it takes to apply (a minute, sure-but I'm busy!). I wish it would mix into my foundation more readily for an all-in-one, but that's really the worst thing I can say about it.4
Absolutely love this product but need to be careful, as it is easy to overapply. I'm very fairskinned and this is a pretty dark product. I only use a tiny bit and make sure that I blend well so I look sun kissed and not fake! Excellent for countouring.4
Love this particular color! It adds a nice bronzing shimmer to the face and works well on both medium skin and light skin. My only gripe is that it's very shimmery- just be careful how much you apply to one spot!4
I have kind of low light in my bedroom where I put on makeup. So the first time I applied this product, it looked like it had just given me a healthy glow. But when I walked into the bathroom at work it looked like I'd put my makeup on with a middle school dance in mind! This is a great product - just be careful to apply a small amount! Also important to note that this doesn't have too much of a tint. It's more of a highlighter/illuminator. If you're looking for a true bronzer I'd look elsewhere =)4
i love this highlighter being a natural blonde with the ability of getting super tan many suggested i should try the high beam but instead i went with sun beam because this can be used by its self to give you that added pop of sun kissed skin in the summer.. my go to highlighter when I'm on the go and don't want the cakieness of a powder and for it to look as natural as possible.5
I purchased Sunbeam Highlighter to accent my cheekbones and eyes. I wanted to use it with or without foundation, however I was disappointed in the results. The brush to apply the highlighter is great and it blends well but it didn't give me the dramatic ILLUMINATING look that I wanted.1
Um, I really really really like this stuff!
I am kinda obsessed with highlighter, so this stuff just adds to the whole flowing affect. I used it around my eyes and outer cheek bones for a subtle glowing look with a little bronzer for a nice summer glow!
But beware, a little goes a long way.
This highlighter is very nice and gives a subtle glow. The color even works on my fair skin. It isn't very shimmery just glory.4
I have a cooler tone, sometimes neutral in summer, so this doesn't work as a daily highlight for me, but in summer it is nice even on really pale tones, just not heavily.4
I just didn't like the consistency of this, but the color is very nice. I think there are plenty of highlighters out there that do the job better, for less.3
