Can't put over makeup
Purchased

I'm not sure why this gets such great reviews. I have used several highlighters and this can NOT be put over any other make up or powder. completely defeats the purpose. I don't wear foundation, just concealer around eyes and pressed powder then a little bronzer. If you put it over any make up I found it streaks and cakes. if you put it under you can't even tell. I was really bummed out as it got great reviews.

Weird Consistency
Sampled

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

Not mascara-fix review board

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.
