Benefit Sun Beam

A beauty editor fave, Benefit’s Sun Beam is a golden bronze highlighter that subtly defines and contours your features.

Summer glowing.

With a natural or fake tan this product is for you. It's also wonderful for women of color. Stunning golden glow for the summer. Beautiful with coral shades. If you have fair skin it may not look the best on your skin though.

Nice glow

I use this to thin out my BB cream for a more natural look. It's also great alone in the summer to add a little glow.

Favorite Summertime Glow

SunBeam is the hands down best shimmery highlighter for getting the perfect summertime glow. Apply lightly to the corner of your eyes, arch of your brow, cupid's bow and center of the nose for a great look that also looks amazing in photos. I agree with the other reviewer who says to be cautious if you are fair skinned, which is why I only use this in summer when I have a bit more color from being outdoors.

Beautiful shimmer
Purchased

This is by far one of my favorite liquid bronzers/highlighters of all time. Benefit always makes beautiful products with integrity and quality.

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.

Beautiful Glow!
Purchased

Loved sunbeam - it made my chubby checks arched higher and a sun kissed look to go! It also pairs well with the other benefit "beam" product line series!

Pretty on Darker Skin Tones
Purchased

I usually use Benefit's High Beam as a highlight but Birch Box was sold out so I went with Sun Beam. It's very pretty and gives a subtle glow. I'm not sure it replaces High Beam but there is a space for it in my beauty routine. A lot of reviews mentioned that it has a lot of sparkle, but I don't feel that it added an abundance of sparkle to my skin and I think this might be because my complexion is darker.

love this highlighter

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.

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.

Kisses by the sun and then some!

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.
