Benefit High Beam ... I'm converted ...

Good afternoon all, hope you're having a great day and enjoying the rather nice weather we've been having! I fancied doing a little review of Benefits High Beam because I’ve enjoyed using this highlighter so much that it’s actually replaced my usual one which was Touche Illuminatrice in Rose Universal by Bourjois My usual highlighter - Rose Universal by Bourjois
I never would have gone out and bought this because I’m really not keen on the Benefit range so I’m extremely glad I bought an extra copy of Glamour this month to get a little bottle free. I’ve used it most days since and I now cant imagine being without it! I’ve read a few reviews by people who don’t like the applicator but I think the brush is really handy! I just pop a small streak of this wherever I need it (cheeks, brow bone and cupids bow) and it takes seconds to blend Thanks to the gorgeous weather we’ve been having recently I’ve been wearing fairly light mattifying makeup but it’s nice to have something that gives a nice healthy glow to the cheeks without making me look shiny
I use a little stripe about this size on each cheek... ...I like how it looks shimmery but not too OTT!

Now that I’ve started using this I cant believe I used a powder highlighter for so long! At this time of year I generally veer away from powders because I like a nice dewy finish to my skin so it’s great to have a nice liquid alternative. I’ve noticed a few copy cats out there that have very similar packaging, shades and even names as Benefits High Beam so when I’m getting to the end of this bottle I think I’ll look around for a cheaper brand because although I like this a lot £18.50 for 15mls just seems a little bit extravagant to me :)

I've always wanted to try this, I love liquids and highlighters so it seems like a no-brainer, but yeah.. the price is just too much for me. :(

Thanks for the review! :)

Thanks to Glamour too I love high beam. It's subtle but the glow it gives to your skin looks natural. LOVE xo

I've had this highlighter for some time now and am really back and forth on whether or not I actually like it. It gives a very pretty glow but I also find it can be kind of sticky at times. Glad you love it.

I have used this for a few years on and off and have used multiple bottles and until I saw it coming out with Glamour it hadn't been touched in months. I decided to crack it out and I LOVE it again! If I'm hungover or haven't slept, mixed with a bit of tinted moisturiser I look glowing. Never forgetting about this again! x
