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?).

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!

Great highlighter!

I love how easy this highlighter is to use. Also, it blends in great and is subtle. It doesn't leave streaks like some highlighters do. Make sure to rub in completely!

bendable and beautiful
Purchased

I really enjoy High Beam, it is a beautiful pinky color that can be subtle or layered to be more bright. It makes my face have a glow that looks like it is coming from within. I like to use this around my eyes, on my cheek bones and my cupids bow. I even dab a bit onto the inner corner of my eyes.
