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.

Nice Glow
Sampled

Benefit High Beam is a pretty nice product, even though I found it a bit shiney. Maybe I need to practice more with the product. Pretty decent size sample. Enjoy it for the nice glow!

AWesomeness

I was doubting this at first beacuse I thought it would give a pink tint. Then I tried it and Loved it. It reflexts light especially well in the corners of the eyes and brow bone. Can't wait to order the full size

This is a great product! Perfect for adding a lovely subtle glow to those areas you want to highlight, like those high cheek bones! This is especially relevant with the popularity of contouring these days. Highly recommended!

Nice glow, doesn't last long
Sampled

I loved the idea of this- it adds a nice little shimmer without being obvious. It's safe to wear to work and adds a nice final touch to your make up. It also looks great for days you don't want to wear any make up but still want that nice glow to your skin.
I typically apply it above my cheek bones, and sometimes on the center line of my nose.
However, I did notice it doesn't seem to last long- and remember to becareful applying it over make up. It's liquid, so you have to gently dab it on as to not smear your foundation/concealer.
Overall, great product and I would recommend it.

Looks natural

Matched my skin tone well. I like the little brush and I think it highlights everything well without making me look done-up and like I'm trying hard.

I like the idea of this stuff, just not real sure how to apply it and use it. Like the color and it smells really good.

This highlighter added some nice brightening effects. I usually don't use highlighter but would consider using it for special occasions.
