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.

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.

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.

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.

Shine On !
Purchased

So I read all the reviews before ordering and people were saying be careful with the amount you put on. However, I found, if you do not use the brush and you dap it on the top of your hand, then use your fingertips to dot onto your cheek bones, you are GOOD to go. I love this highlighter. I definitely brings a glow/shine to your face. I will buy the other sun beam by benefit, as well.

Great product

A little shiny for everyday use, but PERFECT for going out, or any full faced makeup day! I love how the light catches it around my eyes and put under blush really makes my cheekbones look more defined! This is a great addition to my makeup kit and really easy to use!

Love It
Purchased

I was soooo excited to try Sun Beam and I have to say I'm really impressed by this product. It gives you a great glow without leaving you looking to shiney. Applicator brush is really easy to use , gives you a nice control for appying the product.
