A Dream To Use

I could use this product for everything! A great illuminator for under your brow or on your cheeks, you can also dab this beauty along the bridge of your nose and above your cupids bow to give easy definition to your face. Gives a nice healthy glow with a pretty light pink tinge to it. I've even used it as a full eye shadow. It's just the perfect way to pep up your skin. One of my most versatile and used products in my kit.

this product is INCREDIBLE. i revieced a sample bottle of this and will definitely be buying the full size when it runs out - a little goes a long way- i have been using the sample bottle for two months . the consistency is creamy and bendable. i use it to highlight my cheekbones and daily under my brow bone - it adds such a highlight and really defines the brows. the applicator is handy though i usually find myself blending with my fingers. the colour is a champagne or pearl- and should suit most skin tones- i am tanned and it suits perfectly - though I'm not sure how it would SUIT VERY DARK SKIN. it is not runny, which is what i was expecting- for it to be similar to benetint, but thankfully it was not. i have tried many many highlighters including stick, cream and powder and this is honestly the best. what i love it is the staying power - most highlighters i have used in the past havent lasted beyond a few hours. it is easy to remove and doesn't leave a glittery residue.


use as a brow highlighter!
don't apply too much
works best over liquid foundation. it can make powdered foundation muddy

Great Product

I enjoy this product. It was my first time using a non-powder highlighter. I find that it looks good under a foundation, and it holds up without being shiny. I noticed that it was very easy to overuse this product.

There wasn't too much of a scent that I noticed, and it didn't aggravate my overly-sensitive skin.


Apply under a foundation, sparingly.

Ideal for

People looking to try a more liquid highlighter.

So pretty

Benefit's High Beam is the perfect highlighter for me!

I like to dab it along my cheek bones and then blend out with a brush. It lights up my face - making my skin look healthy and glow-y (but not like a glitter ball!)

I love that it is a very, very pale pink - as it really suits my cool undertones. White highlighters can be too harsh for me, and gold tones don't really suit me. This colour is just perfect. You can apply with a light hand for a subtle look, or add more for a night out!

A little bit goes a long way! So while the price of $45 may seem expensive, one bottle will last a very long time! In my opinion, this product is well worth the price.

simple to use love the shine

I had not tried this but it came in a pack I got for Christmas and I really am glad I did.

It comes in a little container that has a lid with a applicator , it has a light fruity scent that rather lovely , its in liquid form that is light and gives a lovely shine that is not to bright just a light shine that really gives my skin a youthful look.

I personally love it and just adore how all the benefits do smell so nice as well as how it does not feel heavy on the skin. I would buy this in the full size as its so nice.

Ideal for

Cheeks , nose brow , to give them a slight healthy shine

high beam is brilliant.

This is amazing! I love contouring and high-lightening, and this year I received a benefit kit for my birthday containing the high beam!
Wow where have you been my whole life! I was so excited to receive this product as a gift as I know how many times it has won awards and wondered why I hadn't tried it in the past....
While this product might seem expensive, I find the tint is really thick and very rich creamy- and a little goes a very long way- so start small and build up as needed- you can always put more on if you need to! It won't run and is super easy to dot and blend.
High beam comes in a container just like the other benefit tints and looks like a nail polish- you twist the container and out comes a paint stick- similar to that of nail polish! High beam is quite thick and pink on the skin- and you need to work quickly- putting a few dots on the cheek and brow bones and then smooth with your finger quickly.Quickly quickly is the key and it is so nice and thick that it blends rich and smooth on the skin.
Like all highlighters you can apply on your cheek bones, your eyes, cupid bows and in between you eye brows for that extra glow. This product is amazing- it quickly and easily smooths and blends well- giving you a luminescent complexion and glow without anyone noticing that you have product on your skin.
The color, in my opinion I would call, a champagne pink and I find that it is perfect for my fairsh skin tone- however, benefit states its suitable for all skin tones. Beware this is a pink based tone. This enhancer looks senselessly on the skin- you wouldn't even notice it was there, which is the whole point. The glow lasts all day and night, and I love this. Long lasting and rich! Another benefit product to include in my permanent benefit collection- totally sold!

Nice dewy highlight

I was a tad worried opening this that it was going to be runny like benetint but lucklily it is a grogeous creamy formula. I dot this on my cheek bones and blend in for a beautiful glowy finish. It really is that easy. I have fairly pale skin and it works perfectly with its pinky champagne finish. Once its on it stays there. I like to set it with a powder higlighter but I could easily skip this.
I usually apply with a brush also putting the product on my hand and dipping my brush is for precise application.
This bottle will last me for ever.

One of my favourite products! Go through it so much!! I use it mainly as a highlighter and it's a bit sparkly which is good for youth my age as I am 19. Will be buying more! I'm disappointed though cause it is expensive for a bottle :/ looking for an alternative that is just as good

Ideal for

Brows, cheekbones

Still looking for my holy grail highlighter

I received this as a Christmas gift last year. This is a nice product, the consistency is creamy and it lasts for a long time if you set it with a transparent powder. I find it to be a little difficult to blend though. It's a beautiful pearlescent colour and I think it looks great on lots of people but I don't think it suits me. For reference, I am NC35-40 and I have quite yellow undertones so I find it difficult to work with pink/silver based highlighters. I much prefer to wear golden toned highlighters so I haven't gotten much use out of this product. Still on the hunt for the perfect highlight!

Gorgeous highlighter

I recently purchased this little product to try out as a highlighter. I was a little hesitant at first because I normally use powder products to highlight and contour. However I'm glad a gave this little beauty a try.

What I love:
*cute packaging (not sure how it will go when I get to using the last of the product).
*gorgeous pearly shimmer-I find it compliments my natural pale skin but also looks great when I've had a spray tan
*easy to blend in
*only need a small amount
*gives a beautiful dewy glow
*verry faint floral scent which disappears after application

I love this little product and will repurchase (although you only use a little at a time so it should last ages). I removed one star for price and availability in Australia. For me it's easiest and cheaper to purchase directly from the company's US website.


Don't use when your using mineral powder foundation as your base - it just doesn't work!

Perfect over liquid or cream foundation.
