Benefit High Beam Review


Benefit High Beam Review

Benefit high beam is quite an old and popular product from Benefit. I have read about it so much that I had to try it out. Few weeks back I got the chance to purchase it and product has become my vanity staple. It’s one of the easiest and effortless ways to glow and will make everyone wonder about the secret of your glow all the time.

About Benefit High Beam:-

What it is:

A luminescent complexion enhancer..

What it does:
Benefit High Beam is an ethereal pink liquid highlighter that creates a radiantly dewy complexion. For an angelic sheen, this pink shimmering lotion adds a soft, natural afterglow.

What else you need to know:
It’s a “supermodel in a bottle…” and perfectly alluring on all skin tones

Size: 0.45 oz Price – $ 24 + Tax


 Packaging –   It comes in a translucent glass bottle packaging with a brush applicator which looks more like a nail polish brush to me. It’s easy to carry around, only thing is that one should be careful about bottle falling down.You never know if it breaks down.

My experience with Benefit High Beam:-

When I first swatched the product I thought its not going to suit my dusky skin tone but my opinion changed after one usage only.It gives a natural looking light shiny pink glow to my skin making it look as if its glowing.Best part is that it has really really fine shimmer so one will never look like a disco ball which most cheap looking highlighter makes one look like.

Benefit High Beam Swatch:-

When swatched it looks like  pinky white and when blended  almost like white highlighter but the moment  it is used on the face, it turns out completely different.

How I use Benefit High Beam Highlighter:-

I take the highlighter first on my finger tips and warm it up a bit and then apply it on top of my foundation.I start with applying it on my temples, bridge of my nose, brow bone , cupid bow and my chin.I then blend it with my finger.One just need a tiny bit of drop of it otherwise one can really mess with it.

In my  look below, I have just eyeliner on my eyes, blush , MAC dangerous lipstick and Benefit high beam highlighter. Quite a casual day look which I generally like to  wear in these cold winters.

  1. Wow you look stunning Ana!!! 😀 i love your lippie and that eyeliner flick is just perfect! i have lotus herbals purestay lippie in Tangerine and the color is more or less the same…I use Watt’s Up highlighter from Benefit, so i’ll give this a pass but looks great on you..the Watt’s Up one gives a more champagne-y colored should give that a go, you’ll rock it! 🙂

  2. ahhh, I always wanted to read Indian reviews about this one, considering our skin tone is different, great review.
    Is it available at Sephora?
