I swear I read the instructions for this 100 times and it does not do what it says it will. I dabbed it onto my cheekbones thinking it would make them look all glowy and beautiful. Nope, it made it look like splotches of shine. Super awkward because it does not smooth in.

If you have olive skin don't bother
Purchased

I couldn't wait to see the beautiful pinky highlighted glow on my cheekbone however I have olive skin and the High Beam doesn't show up at all. Needless to say I am disappointed.

I could use this on my eyes to add a little sparkle and even there it doesn't really do anything. I have no other real use for it. Wrong color for my skin

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.

Love This

I use this everytime I do my makeup. I use it over my concealer and foundation in certain spots and it blends I very nicely.

High beam

It looked really nice but I don't use blush or any product on my cheeks other than foundation. Might try it in the future
