I received high beam highlighter. I have olive skin so the pink shade does not work.

Too drastic!

Didnt really like this product on my skin. I have pretty tan skin and i thought this would compliment well... but its almost too strong. It goes on really light and even when it is rubbed in it doesnt look natural.

I find that if you mix it with a different highlighter, or maybe a tinted primer... it tones it down.

Not for me

This color is really pretty in the bottle, but too shimmery for me when on. It is also really liquidy and thin, I would have liked a thicker product with more staying power.

Not for women of color

As with many of Benefit's products, this one is not made for women of color. I have light skin and when I put it on it made me look completely ridiculous. I didn't buy this alone, I got it in a three pack, it came along with Benefit's Posietint and Benetint. But the High Beam was not for me.

I am always looking for ways to brighten my eye appearance since I am getting older. I have to say this was a little to glittery for me at my age.

Not great for all skin types

I tried this product that was meant to highlight certain areas of the face. Overall as a person of color this product didn't really illuminate as much as it just looks awkward. Perhaps it was an application error.

pointless product

I have had this for over a year and it is still full. It is not a great contouring makeup because it has way too much shimmer. It makes my skin look fake. It could be cool for club makeup, however.

What highlight?

I'm not sure this product did anything for me. It may be my medium olive complexion but it seemed to go on so light that it wasn't even noticeable. A darker shade may be better for my skin tone.
