Benefit High Beam

By Behindtheseclosedeyes @theseclosedeyes
Casting my mind back over the past few years, I don't think I had ever been a user of highlighters until recently. You don't imagine how influential blogs and videos can be but after a lot of dabbling in both I realised I just had to get to grips with highlighting and make my skin look uber glowy (if that's even a word). Enter High Beam from Benefit which was actually the very first Benefit product in my make-up stash. I just have the small sample size bottle of High Beam which was a blog sale purchase (surprise surprise!) from a few months ago, but in all honesty this dainty bottle has lasted me well. I don't use this product on a daily basis but it has had its fair share of love since it arrived and still has about half the bottle left which is always good news.

As you can see from the pictures above, High Beam comes in what looks like a nail polish bottle and when opened also resembles the brush of a nail polish bottle. I like the idea of this brush as application is very simple and allows you to swish a sufficient amount on the areas needing that extra bit of sparkle, but make sure not to go a bit swipe happy as the brush can hold a fair amount of product. I find the liquid formula very easy to blend with my finger and soon enough you are left with a pretty pearl glow to the skin, perfect for accentuating cheekbones, the bridge of your nose or anywhere else that you feel deserves a bit more attention. High Beam is a liquid highligher with pink undertones and a pearly finish, and has been great for complimenting my pale skin with pink undertones. All in all I'm very happy with this highlighter and am glad that I picked it up a few months ago, although I don't think I could justify spending so much money on a full size bottle as it currently retails for £18.50 (ouch). Have you tried Benefit's High Beam?
