I wear it every day!

Not only do I wear it everyday, but people consistently comment on how healthy my skin looks. I say it's my genes (thanks Mom!) but I owe a lot to High Beam! I've got big eyes and am prone to gigantic bags under my eyes, and High Beam is like walking around with someone holding perfectly flattering lights on you at all times. It highlights the good stuff and blends in the icky stuff. It's not concealer, but makes whatever you're highlighting stand out without being too obvious. A little at the top of my cheeks/bottom of my eyes, a tad on my browbones and I look like a stinkin' model. I LOVE THIS STUFF.

My "go to" for a highlighter.
Purchased

I love this product. I've been using it for a couple of years now and like to use it on my cheekbones and just a tad over my cupid's bow (lip). It highlights without any sparkle, just a slight shimmer that lights up your face. I will always use this as my highlighter (until I find something better one day?).

Lovely and subtle
Sampled

I love this stuff, it goes on pretty thin so i apply a few coats to the area i want and then gently blend into my foundation to high light my cheek bones :)

Love the subtle pearl like glow of this product!
SampledPurchased

I love this product so much! It gives a very nice but subtle pearl like glow. Great for highlighting under the brow and cheek bones. I recently purchased the full sized product and can't wait for it to arrive!

Interesting Look
Purchased

I really like this product because it can be light and soft, but can also be layered and heavier. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is that I have red cheeks so it seems to emphasise this. I likely won't use it on a daily basis because of this, but enjoy it when I am looking to do a little more.

First Time Highlighter

I've had this for a long time now... I think I received it as a gift or in a kit. I only used it here and there... but now that I do my makeup more, it's a go-to. I love it on my cheek bones and brow bones to give that extra pop of light. It's subtle, but you can always add more of you want more of a statement. It's easy to blend and has never given me any troubles with my skin.

Too Weak

With a name like "High Beam" I was expecting something very blinding, however, that is not what I got. Instead this highlighter is very subtle, and I stress the world subtle. It's pretty, but just not my style. It's also hard to tell if it's long lasting because I can't really see it after I've put it on. I'm not a fan.

Use it daily!

It’s smooth and sheer liquid texture is great for blending on top of contour and using on the eyes. I have a sample and I use a little every day! It’s great!!!
