For a more rosy illuminator, try Benefit’s equally enchanting High Beam, which has the same sheer blendability in a slightly pinker tone.

Birchbox Breakdown

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but we think pearls are much more flattering. This gleaming liquid highlighter goes on sheer to give skin a soft, ethereal sheen. Plus, the twist-up applicator is truly foolproof.

Dab on the apples of your cheeks, your jawline, and anywhere the mood strikes. Rub in to blend. Wear alone or layer on top of makeup.

Great for us pale girls.
Sampled

This highlighter is my go-to for contouring my pale Irish skin. I can't use pink/rosy highlighters because I already have pink undertones, so I'm so happy Birchbox sent me a white/pearly highlighter. I use it down the center of my nose, directly above and below my lips, cheekbones, above brows, and center of forehead to contrast with my bronzer contouring and this looks amazing. I always look better in pictures, too, because of its highlighting.

Thanks for this gem, Birchbox!

Subtle pearl finish
Sampled

The pearl finish this highlighter leaves is just the perfect amount! Its not over the top and glittery, instead it has a hint of pearl that catches the light subtly and gives the most amazing highlight to your cheeks, nose, chin! Its definitely perfect for everyday use.. not just for a special night out. This is something that I use daily to freshen up any makeup look!

Pretty

This gives a nice, glowy look to your skin but don't use too much or that glow could look a little greasy. If you keep that in mind, this highlighter is very flattering.

Love it!
Purchased

I love this product once I learned how to use it appropriately for my face. Ladies be careful with how much product comes out before applying it to your skin! Once you find a good balance it works really well, and it doesn't give an un-natural over-shiny look to your skin. It's just right.

Sparkly
Purchased

This product makes me shine and I love it. I ran out and tried a few other options - but they would look clumpy if I wasn't careful to blend it all in really well....that never happened with this and its silkier and smoother.

I just bought another one as I am lost without it. Make you have a healthy glow.
Love it

This shines: not for day look

I love wearing this when I go out. It delivers: you do get a sheer sheen. However, this is definitely not for a day look precisely because you end up with a sheen.
The application is soft and it doesn't run. I usually wear it on top of foundation, and it lasts all night.

Great highlighter, blends easily
Sampled

I like this highlighter from benefit, but I prefer a powder one. It blends well, but I found that it streaks easily, if you don't really work with it. It illuminates skin, though, so for that it's good. I've used it as an eyeshadow and a lipcolor, too!

Not bad
Sampled

I wouldn't use this every day, but I liked it when I did use the product. A little too much glitter for me, but I don't wear a lot of makeup. I don't think I would buy the full size product, but it wasn't horrible.

not a miracle, but good enough
Purchased

I had really high hopes for this product because benefit has never let me down before. But it was just ok. It blends great and looks good enough on my fair skin, but didn't turn me in to an ethereal goddess or anything.
