Benefit Sunbeam Highlighter
Purchased

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.

Dissapointed
Purchased

This product didnt blend at all for me. I put it on and end up with streaks/dots of orange EVERY TIME. The color is also a little orange-y for me. Really disappointing.

Glitter, so much glitter
Purchased

There is a lot of glitter in this product. It was not for me or my friend that I had purchased it for. We're maybe just not in the appropiate age group for full on glitter face. This is definately not the subtle shimmer I like with my highlighters.

There are better highlighters out there
Purchased

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.

Just okay

I think this is good as a highlighter, but there are better products for that out there. As a bronzer it doesn't seem to do much, I prefer powders for that.

Nice
Purchased

I purchased this based on the reviews I read and found that it lived up to most of them. I liked the color tone on my cheek bones, but wasn't as impressed as I was expecting to be. I would still recommend this product!

Ok

This was ok but I don't love it. I guess it just doesn't work with my skin which can be on the oily side so it was just too shiny and sparkly for me.

It's okay.

I got this in a mini trio with Posie and Cha Cha. This one isn't my favorite highlight and I don't use it very often as it doesn't give a natural glow.

OK, but maybe not my fave Birchbox purchase
Purchased

I would say this is an OK product. Bought the full size and just don't find myself using it that much. I think I would enjoy it more if I had a little more color to my skin. I'm very fair and just don't love the way it looks on my skin. More of a personal preference rather than a reflection of the product.

Pretty Glow

This stuff is pretty cool. Gives a golden glow without the powdery look you get with most bronzers. I will say if you are someone wanting a full coverage look this is not for you. This is great for someone who needs just a touch of bronze glow.
