Birchbox Breakdown

We don’t know about you, but if we had three beauty wishes, we’d go for killer cheekbones, glowing skin, and great lighting wherever we went. Since our resident genie seems to have gone missing, we rely on wonderous products instead. A perpetual award winner, Benefit’s High Beam subtly highlights and enhances your features — a necessity when you want to draw a little extra attention.

How it Works

It’s all about the shimmer. This liquid illuminator comes in a soft pink hue that flatters all skintones. It softly reflects light for an instant spotlight effect, plus gives skin a dewy finish.

How to Use

Use your fingertips to paint a small amount on cheekbones, brow bones, and anywhere you want to add definition. Blend quickly. You can also mix a couple drops with your moisturizer or foundation for a dewy, radiant sheen.

Water, Propylane Glycol, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Mica, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Lanolate, Stearic Acid, Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, Polysorbate 60, Cetyl Alcohol, Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Oil, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Corn (Zea Mays) Starch, Triethanolamine, Talc, Oleth-20, Iron Oxides, Lanolin Wax, Simethicone, Sorbitan Stearate, Cellulose Gum, Methylparaben Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben, BHA.

Beautiful shade!

Love this shade and have always wanted to try it. Perfect for many skin tones and textures. Best when mixed with foundation, but good however you use it.

Benefit High Beam has been a favorite highlighter of mine for years. It's great on the cheekbones but I also like to mix it in with foundation to give an all over glow. Happy to have a travel size now

Absolutely love this product!! It works very well & looks great on my skin! I'm so glad I got this in my Birchbox and I plan on buying it! I've never used a highlighter before but it truly works very well & it's easy to use.

Shine bright like a diamond
Sampled

I don't usually use highlighters, they are too technically tricky for me to apply, but I DO use them as eye shadow. This is a very easy to apply, highlighter that makes my eye area light up. Smooth, not cakey, I really like it.

Will I use it as a facial highlighter? Probably not. But it works great in my eye make up routine.

Pretty but hard to blend.
Sampled

I was really excited to try this product, as I've only used powder highlighters before. The product does what it's supposed to do but I found that it was hard to blend and kind of just looked like a big shiny streak on my cheek bone. (I know that's kind of the idea but it just didn't look quite right) Maybe this is just not for me.
